    Sorry guys. It was a Facebook Live video.
    I can't do much with it. How about we all delete these posts to clean up the thread?
    Can a mod help me out here?

    Made this up to lead into a song I can't play properly yet :) I think this is one of the hardest finger picked rhythm parts I have ever tried to play 7/4 timing as well.

    Nice job on a difficult song imo.
    Pretty sure it's Peter "solsbury steak" Gabriel :D.

    This is one of our mellower rock songs.

    The other guitar player had a couple riffs, the lyrics and an intro.
    I showed him how to construct it into a song, it's his very first experience trying to write as a guitar player.
    We're still working on the final mix..

    Thanks everyone The song is Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel and starts with the acoustic part.
    Took me ages to get my fingers around the timing, now I have to try to fret the strings properly and speed up a little.

    Thanks! I used an attenuator on the JCM2000 to get the valves cooking.

    That is by far the best tone I have ever heard from a DSL . Have you spent a lot of time setting up the amp ? Tubes/ bias . Just wondering , if attenuation is all you did to the amp damn !

    Matt you said that was a mellower tune!
    You now need to bring a heavier one. Sorry brother but I took the words off your post, and would love to hear more.
    Cheers Mitch

    Thanks for your comments:)
    I put the Mercury Magnetics OT, PT, and choke in it years ago but that didn't really change the sound, Just made it punch like Mike Tyson.
    Apart from that it is just the way I bought it in 2004.
    Valves are new production Mullard El34 Biased a little lower than the spec but not by much, it has an Ei in V1 and Brimars in V2,3,4
    and it was on Green Crunch set like this.

    I fully intend to.
    I have to finish vocals on the 2 we have the drums & guitars down...
    The song 'Sin Eater'...I have to find a way to make the 'es' sounds not so harsh in all the words that 'es' in them. After hearing the first attempt...I was yeah...need to find a way to tame that (and damn..find words with less letter 's' in them...lol).
    Maybe in a week or so, It'll be ready.

    This is a different approach to something I have already posted.
    All I did was use a different amp, and turn the volume on the neck pup down.
    Cheers Mitch

    Less gain this time. What amp was it.
    Sometimes I don't know if the bike is the right way up and you are hanging from the roof like a bat with the camera upside down :)

    It’s the origin 50 H and the lead100 mosfet, the only thing I changed was the volume pot on the guitar.
    Cheers Mitch
    PS I have the SD1 on also, and the boost on the amp.
