  1. Hey guys, I am picking up a 50 watt Marshall Vintage Modern head on Friday and was wondering what speaker cabs you would suggest to go along with it. I was going to go with the run-of-the-mill Marshall 1960A slant cab until the sales guy recommended I used the Vintage Modern 425 cab with greenback speakers. Comparing the two I really don't notice a difference, so is it worth the extra $200? I'm open to other brands too, but Marshall was my first thought as I'm looking for a 4x12 closed cab. I play a lot of classic rock and blues (as you can probably tell by my username) so I want something loud with a lot of thump and clarity to it. Thanks, SRV-Zep Oh, and I play a 2007 LP standard and a '62 american vintage strat reissue if anyone was interested.
  2. If we had a horn section backing us up then it'd definitely be on the list.
  3. and... we're back on page one. more posts would be appreciated.
  4. Thanks. It's tough to come up with well-known covers for a venue like this when you're short a 4th member.
  5. It was our drummer's idea. I don't want to play it either.
  6. Hey guys... for those of you who remember me, I know I haven't been on this forum for ages. I quit posting around this time last year because things just got too busy, and I never started back up again. ANYWAY... my band has been hired to play at the beer gardens for the Canada Day celebrations in my hometown, and we're trying to brainstorm good danceable songs. Keep in mind there's only 3 of us - guitar, bass, drums - and therefore we can't do a lot of the synth-filled 80s music like Bryan Adams or Whitesnake that would normally fit into a show like this. We'd also like to include some more recent songs (no Nickelback please) to please the young whipper-snappers. Not all of us grew up in the 70s, after all. here's our current proposed song list: (we need about 3 hours of stuff) AC/DC- You Shook me all night long - Highway to Hell - T.N.T. Alice Cooper- School’s out for Summer April Wine- Enough is Enough Beach Boys- Surfin’ USA Beatles- Twist and Shout - I Want to Hold your Hand Billy Talent- Surrender Black Sabbath- Iron Man Cheap Trick- I Want you to want me Cream- Sunshine of Your Love Creed- One Last Breath CCR - Have you ever seen the rain? - Proud Mary - Bad Moon Rising Finger Eleven- Falling On Guns N Roses- Sweet Child o Mine Jimmy Eat World- The Middle Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues Kiss - Rock and Roll All Nite Lifehouse - You and Me My Chemical Romance- Teenagers Nirvana - About a Girl Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Fishin’ in the Dark Our Lady Peace - Somewhere out there Ozzy Osborne - Crazy Train Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge - Scar Tissue - Californication - Otherside - Can’t Stop - By the Way - Dani California R.E.M. - The One I love Rolling Stones - Brown Sugar Roy Orbison - Pretty Woman Shinedown - Second Chance Stevie Ray Vaughan - Pride and Joy Three Dog Night - Jeremiah was a Bullfrog The Turtles - Happy Together Twisted Sister - We’re not gonna take it U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday - Vertigo - With or Without You Weezer - Beverly Hills - Pork and Beans ZZ Top - Sharp Dressed Man If you can think of any essentials that are missing or any songs above that would not fit in for an event like this, please let me know. we're open to suggestions. and we don't want to do any country...
  7. Either a Marshall DSL-100, a Vox AC30 or a Fender Princeton Reverb. hell, I don't care, whatever works best for you.
  8. ...but I do. After deciding for the last 8 months that my next guitar will undoubtedly be a 1962 Strat RI, I've suddenly changed my mind. I was in a local vintage guitar shop the other day (just for kicks) and the owner showed me a 1965 all original Epiphone Olympic. (for those of you who don't know, it's got a thin mahogany body, two single-coil pickups, two volume, two tone, set neck, etc. can't post pics at the moment.) I have to say that after comparing it rather vigorously to the Strat, I like it a whole lot better. And it's the same price - roughly $1500 CDN. the Epiphone doesn't have the natural compression that the Strat's pickups have, but the feel of the guitar is just amazing. (insert SRV quote here: "it just feels real good.") maybe it's the nitro-finished neck on the Strat or the worn-down frets on the Epi after being played for 40 years, but I'm just in love with this thing. I'll make sure I post tons of pics once I get it. (I just have to buy a keyboard first...) on another note, who here thought I had left never to return?
  9. This has nothing to do with Canada vs America or any of that crap, just simple statistics, building on what djorge1 said: Washington, DC (and surrounding suburbs) and the Greater Toronto Area both have a population of around 6 million people. In 2005 (2006?) DC had over 1000 gun murders. Toronto had 18. The difference: down south in the US, gun laws are lax at best (or at least were) and guns are a part of the american culture. In Canada, we have gun registry, and besides, for most of the year it's too damn cold to do drive-by shootings. If you play with fire, expect to get your fingers burnt.
  10. Most overrated artist of all time? hmm... I'd say Axl Rose- I mean, after GnR. Even during GnR I didn't like him.
  11. I haven't had butterhorns in ages. Similar to frosted cinnamon buns, but way better. Don't ask me how, they just are. Damnit! Now I'm craving Cinnzeo...
  12. Because of members like GuitarJunkie and R9, us Canadians own more Gibsons per capita than any other country in the world. Gibson actually pays us to be on these forums... (how do you think Tim got first dibs on all the 50th anniversary R9s coming in to Canada?)
