  1. The same company that makes big bends nut sauce has a scratch remover in a paste form. It is really delicate too. I have used it on a tone of my guitars. It is a buffing compound of sorts. You could try that on a damp cloth and see how it does. But on another note, I had a white SG at one time that the previous owner took and left it in a guitar stand and the black foam rubber on the stand was absorbed into the lacquer on the guitar and guess what.......it never came out. SO I hope you will be able to do something with yours. Sorry to see this.
  2. Just picking out melodies at first then applying that to fills and little riffs for my music. It is not going to happen over night by any means!! I have been playing guitar for 40 years now and still do not know anything really. I just play and make things up and sometimes it comes out kind of neat........I think so anyway.
  3. Yeah your right. the ones I was looking at were kind of limited as to the sound manipulation being only preset. That is why I stepped up in price. I think it would seem to work out similar due to the fact that chords all kind of work together through out all of the instruments. I am looking forward to it very much!!
  4. Thanks yeah i understand. I understand completely what you mean. Even if I get to a point where I am kind of making some sort of melody or arrangement that is not out of key I think I will be happy. At least to get the idea across to my friend who will be able to put the parts in i am looking for. I play the bass as well although I am not a bass player by any means. I do good to keep up a decent groove but sometimes I get to where I want to over play the part and screw things up. When I have to put a bass part down I have to tell myself to keep with the beat and not over play it. That is how I try to keep things from going haywire. But at the end of the day, I think I truly love to make music only because of the love of music. It keeps me going and I do learn or develope better skills with this mind set.
  5. I do not know what I am doing on the guitar at all. Other than the key I am in and the major and minor chords and such. Just the basics is all I know and a few scales. I do things on the guitar but I have no idea what the correct term for whatever I am playing is other than lead and rhythm. My mother used to play the piano and her twin sister does still currently at the age of 90. I think it is awesome that my aunt still plays at her age. My mom died in 1987. I am sure she would still be playing as well. Anyways long story short, when I was a kid I used to mess around some on moms piano. I never asked my mom how to play, I would just sit at it and fart around and trying to make some kind of melody. Later on as an adult I had access to a piano and kind of picked up it up again and really impressed myself and a few others for a short while. So now I am getting into recording more here at home and I have some ideas in my head for fills and such for a strings or different sounds. My friend who I record with can play the keyboards and does all of the fancy stuff. However I cannot just run over to his house every time an idea pops into my head. So today I bought a Roland Juno DS Synthesizer DS 61. It is a little more than I originally had in mind to spend but after everything I was looking for, I believe it is something I will kind of grow in to once i learn my way around it. I looked at some work station type or arrangers if you will by Korg too but I already have protools and although I know the one I bought has some ways to lay tracks down internally, I will be recording most of the music on protools itself. I do not know anything about midi and all so i will probably not fool around with that much. however, loading a drum pattern into the protools and syncing the time clocks with the clock internally with protools and this new Roland may be a challenge since I am more of a plug and play kind of guy. But I am up for a challenge! I like the effect that keyboard pads do for a song too and that is another reason i wanted to get into this more. I have all of these sounds bouncing around in my heads like string parts and fills or whatever but never had anyway to get it from my head and onto a track. Anyways, any others out there playing the keyboard too?? Also bought picture chord chart for the piano and also a picture scale book for the piano as well today because, I do not know how to read music and it will be a way easier learning platform for me. Here is a link to the one I purchased. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/JunoDS61--roland-juno-ds61-61-key-synthesizer
  6. That is some cool shots of your gig. Yes I imagine the set up and take down was a drag. The crowds you guys played in front on are nice sized. Keep on trucking. I used to play out a lot but have not done it in a long time and only record and stuff now. But I miss it somewhat too. keep on jamming!!
  7. You got that right. Now I only get a "little" gas from time to time. I have had 3 SG guitars. there is only one I really miss though. They are good ones. Enjoy your SG!!
  8. Thank you. I am glad you liked the track. Having a violinist who is so good and professional to work with opens up a lot of ideas to bounce off of. I must admit since I have met him I have got to meet and record with some guys who are pretty well known. Thanks for the kind words!!
  9. I am glad you liked it. We have several more too. I actually took a listen to all of the other songs, 3 total, that were up for the award too. I must admit I think there was some great talent in a couple of them and I had a lot of doubt. But it all worked out great and I appreciate your kind words!!!
  10. Thank you very much. I must admit, I lurked around a bit here and there but never posted. I just could not get the hang of how the forum format has changed so much but I am over that now and am going to post more.
  11. I am sorry to hear about this. A fire is a terrible thing. I pray your family is well during all of this. As long as they are safe and sound, none of those guitars and amps matter,
  12. Nice looking guitars. you have a very nice camera too it seems. Picks up a lot of details. Congrats on the axes!!
  13. Been a while since I have posted anything. But long story short yesterday at the 2019 Josie Music Awards our song won Instrumental of the year! I believe it is the best thing that has ever happened to me musically. Anyways, the song was submitted by Hyram Posey who is a most talented violinist and by the way, also won musician of the year yesterday at the josie music awards and also won the 2018 Musician of the year at the American Western Music Awards 2018. So earlier this year he submitted a few songs we have done to the Josie music awards and we won yesterday! Here is a link to the song on our studio website. The website has not been updated just yet for the announcement of the award itself. However, you can listen to the full song just by scrolling down on the main page of the website and click on it. It is the first song that shows up called "Somewhere Else." I (Tim Henderson) play all of the guitar both lead, rhythm and bass, Gene Charlebois plays the drums, piano, keyboards, final mixing and Hyram Posey plays all of the violin. Hyram called me yesterday as soon as he found out from the award ceremony and I thought it would be cool to share here with you guys. I almost posted this a while back when were were nominated then decided not to do so because I had doubt it would go this far. However it went all of the way!!!! Hopefully some you will enjoy taking a listen to it and let me know your thoughts. Here is the link below. https://charlebois-studio.com/
