Well John, ya wouldn't want to be standin' at those crossroads in rush hour man!!!!
Unfortunately I missed Boxstock but I want to go to the next UK festiavl. We had a small gig with tintone army and aboycalledstu in London recently which was fun - Ill let you know the next one.
Checked out that amp youve got and seems like a lot of amp for £99. Im looking for something to mike up - at the moment Im going straight into laptop. I have a small fender champion 600 with a valve pre amp which has a really nice sound for a regular gittar but no effects. Are you happy with yours? - would you recommend or go for a multi effects pedal?(which I've never been keen on).
Long time no hear from! How you been? Thanks for the comments on Boneyard Strut. I find that if I sit down for a 2-3 nights in the quiet hour after everyone's gone to bed, just plinking away, things like this begin to appear under my fingers. I haven't been so musically creative since I took up the guitar at age 17! And lyrics seem to sprout out of nowhere when I get on CBN and see some vids or hear other people's tunes. Working on getting the Townes Van Zandt CBG tribute album in the can, and continually writing lyrics, song snippets and full songs for my debut album, which I'm scheduling for year-end. Got another one in the works that sounds vaguely CCR / John Fogerty-ish. Will be traveling to Poland and the US later this summer for Little League baseball, as my 12-year-old son made the All Star Travel Team; wish we could stop off in England, catch a blues festival, and pay you a visit. One day.
Thanks John, that gitty actually belongs to his sister's husband, he was there for a visit, and seemed to enjoy playing it---I think I need to build him something even crazier---he's getting pretty good!!
Yes, additional tools can be really useful - it's just a case of being selective and finding the ones that make a real difference, as opposed to those that perhaps duplicate something that I already have.
Hi John, thanks for your comments. I was looking at that lovely art deco one on you made a while back on your website. That's as nice an instrument as you're gonna find. Hope it plays as well as it looks. I also like the fact that you are trying to take intonation to another level too with some nice bridge/saddle designs. I've been toying with the same kind of thing for a while now but none of my designs have actually made it to any of my builds as yet. Hopefully, I'll perfect them enough to start using them in the near future. Trev
