  1. Decent cleans, decent grinds, decent Too Much Of Everythings. That's all you need for gear. It's all on you after that. Confidence, which comes from acceptance of how you sound when you play, and how you play, that's what leads to confidence. You should look like you own that thing because you feel like you own that thing. rct
  2. Beach bars in AC, but they aren't open yet, should be next week. Maybe. rct
  3. That sucks. We had a halfa dozen coming up, but we are not going to open indoor eating/drinking/entertainment as we were planning to tomorrow, July 2nd. "Until further notice", which pretty much means this year. Sucks. rct
  4. I agree. All the mids of a P-90 and none of the pain. Seymour makes them well. rct
  5. Any Disney Person worth their salt knows the song Oh Canada from the Canada in EPCOT. Love that movie and that song. Take off ehy. rct
  6. Neck fell and hit something. Top of the amp is always a good candidate for that, or out front thrashing over the monitor. Missed a cymbal and hit a drum rim, that would be how I would get that. rct
  7. I know man. I pick mine up and almost throw it over my shoulder. rct
  8. Dual Showman was a fukkin amp it was yessirree Bob's yer uncle. Took three pedals to put a dent in that headroom. Took three guys to carry each. Controlling that mess was what made guitar players, it's how many of us still around learned to play. Nothing beats stupid volume and 4 LPBs. rct
  9. John Legend is a Bono of a different color. rct
  10. I installed my new Shure wireless pedal thingy. Nice. Had some Scotch. rct
  11. Ok, so if I bought that guitar with Kluson tulips on it I'd lose them the first day for a set of Grovers. Grovers don't break, Kluson tulips do, and you only need it to happen once to hate them. The Burstbuckers are a bit on the shrill, harsh, scritchy side, depending on what words you like to use, so I'd also put 57 Classics in it the first day, the closest they have to their own PAFs. rct
  12. YaY. It's the 90's again. rct
  13. People switch tuners to get a completely different tone? When did this happen? rct
  14. I'm rct and I approve this message. rct
  15. Higher output pickups actually provide less dynamics, they hit the amp too hard no matter what you do back at the guitar end of things. rct
  16. Wheedly part: That section of the guitar neck from 15th fret up. A dangerous area often ventured into with limited success, sometimes leading to a solo Trainwreck. rct
  17. Clipped Harmonic: The art of plucking and then immediately stopping the vibration of a string, resulting in the highest harmonic content a human can hear, relative to where along the string plucked and relative to the pickup(s) being used. Often, very often, far too often erroneously referred to as pinched harmonic. Why did people start saying that? rct
  18. rct language Front Pickup: The one closest to the neck. Back Pickup: The one closest to the bridge. rct
  19. Cymbals: Hardware the drummer hangs up for the guitar player to headstock all night. Headstock: That part of the guitar designed to hold the tuning machines and a smoke. See Cymbals. rct
  20. Trainwreck: When the four band members all start it off spectacularly, two starting the song on the list, two starting two entirely different songs. Missed: When I get on the mic and I shouldn't have. Doubling: STOP SINGING MY PART. rct
  21. But...it's Summer...it will...disappear...right? lolz rct
  22. I was lucky to hang around backstage when they were at Ettis Arena at the old Taj Mahal. A lady I played the Blooz with was running lights so yeah, comped to hang around and even eat. Anyway, his stack of...some weird Fender amp thingy and his big Pandora stick? Remember that? Had some magic combination of pedals he allegedly used for his legendary uber schweet Tone? Remember that? I think it was Pandora, but I can't remember. Anyway, the stack of...somethings were all empty and one had an ashtray, some smokes, and a coffee in it. His sound was done under the stage as lots do sometimes. I don't think he even stepped on a pedal, someone else does it all for him. And anyway, I used to know the guy that did that stuff and also was one of their long time recording engineers. He passed away quite some years ago now. So, yeah. rct
  23. Thank You fellow Retired guy. rct
  24. I use a little chorus for clean stuff, delay for the Gilmour and not much else. rct
