Re: Tone, Taste, or Technique... which is most important?

Mostly, I've always been attracted to tone, first. You ask in a blues context.... probably especially in a blues context, with the possible exception of Hubert Sumlin. As to the question of Coltrane having good tone, c'mon!? IT'S GREAT! Stevie Nicks.... Not so great. Then again, I think she has a we...

Re: Live concerts that are just like the record

Hi :) I think this one depends not only on the listener, but also on the performer. For instance, I prefer the Jazz/Blues/Folk approach to live music. Listen to different versions of Mingus doing, Haitian Fight Song .... Each is practically a different song altogether. I happen to like that. Sure, t...

Re: Do you think the blues is too white?

No, sorry.... I have to agree with Honeyboy. I mean, white people trying to be polite or apologetic saying that color doesn't matter. BULL! Yeah, John Hammond Jr. plays it right.... Closest to Robert Johnson than I ever heard anyone else. B U T, It's TOO PERFECT! He can play the stuff, but not with ...

Re: Hendrix - was he really that good?

I can see what you're saying, Chris. Though it's odd for me to see SO many people that DON'T like Hendrix. I never knew he had so many detractors.... Really. Where I grew up, everyone I knew thought he was a God! Plus, I grew up with him. He was my dad's favorite. When I was a kid, dad's favs were: ...

Re: All Of Those Old Records Have Mistakes On Them

We record primarily live and try not to do edits. You get better takes, better mistakes and overall better tracks.... I am a sucker for outtakes, 1st takes, ground tracks, B sides, Board feeds, 4 tracks and Alternates. I like recordings to feel like I'm in the room much more than the best possible ...

Re: All Of Those Old Records Have Mistakes On Them

My favorite song with a mistake in it, offhand, is Louie Louie by The Kingsman. It was like a One Take Wonder :D Great catch by the drummer 8) Another fav is Burnin' H ell on the Hooker 'N Heat album. Johnny Lee with Alan Wilson on Harp. Johnny Lee leaves it sound like he wants the instrumental brea...

Re: Hendrix - was he really that good?

WOW! Great topic :D I have so much to say about this, I'm bursting at the seams! My first thought to say to you, Vic, about why you don't really find Jimi pleasing can be summed up in just one word - JAZZ! I know how much you dislike Jazz. Any fan of The Doors should recognize the Jazz leanings of M...

Ooooh.... That looks nice! :D

What's it covered in?
Looks reminiscent of a Blue Diamond Ampeg 8)

Re: Does my Marshall Haze 40 sound like a Marshall?

Hey :)

Great playing, TR 8)

As far as it sounding like a Marshall, I'm with Paul on this....
I thought it had too much distortion for the classic early 70's hard rock tone.
Was pretty good for the Ozzy stuff though :wink:

Re: Favorite Song:

Vic.... Koss! Awesome! :D I would have to say, without thinking much, that my favorite song is: The Wind Cries Mary, by Jimi. It's just lovely: Guitar, arrangement, lyrics, imagery, feeling.... Quite a few by Jimi.... Dylan, Beatles, Stones, Waits, Van Morrison, Doors, and let's not forget - Goodbye...

Re: HNGD! Again?!?

Re: pup height Very little has to do with measurements or sight. You know that they're 'spose ta be lower on the bass side. Other than that, the optimum height is achieved via listening. Why are measurements not a major factor? Cos each Strat is different, and everyone plays differently. You may hav...

Re: telecaster p.u. upgrade?

Hey, DB :) I'm not sure how you could get 'em, but I heard a Tele that I wanted in the worst way and it had Fender handwound Abby pups in it. There's all kinds of craziness out there regarding those. I know most aren't actually handwound by Miss Ybarra herself, but they still sound pretty darn good!...
