    I'm exhausted.

    My dudes. I am wiped out tonight. Having another guiness extra foreign stout and then going to nod out. I had to respond to an accident at work involving 9 vehicles. No bleeders but people were pretty banged up. Depressing. Just another day. Stay safe, m.f'ers.

    sticky-stiff pots

    Hi all.. several (4) pots on my 1988 JCM 800 have gotten very hard to turn.all the others turn very easily. I emailed a tech I am friends with (he lives one state over) and he suggested if I spray a drop of wd40 on the shaft "that should do it." I tried it and it didn't work. The only...

    Merry Christmas, M.F'ers. An old little ditty.

    I forgot about this song until my great friend Jimmy asked about it. I want to do a new, revamped version from scratch but decided, thanks to the approaching holiday to pop it on here for you guys and 1 gal. :) I don't love it but it was my first crack at writing a Christmas tune. I am...

    Got my Pro co, Keeley modded, The Rat2 (I think, lol) in the mail. I am loving it. It's a one trick (2 at most) pony but so far, dynamite. I've settled in on the Mighty Mouse mode, at least on the Mesa. I have it hooked up to the Mesa Lonestar and it's definitely super crunchy. I use the...

    Distortion/ Overdrive. What channel should I be using?

    So.. I have *ALWAYS* used distortion or Overdrive pedals with a slightly dirty dirty channel. Researching a future G.A.S. purchase; a Keeley modded Pro Co Rat 2... I went on Youtube and noticed that every demo for any pedal I looked at was done on an amp's clean channel. Sacrebleu! Have I...

    I hate changing strings.

    Even when I only had 2 or 3 guitars, I've hated changing strings. This was pre- Floyd; with a Floyd it's an even bigger drag and mind you, I leave the strings on forever before I do swap 'em out. Taking them off... cleaning the neck gunk... oiling the fret board and sanded necks... getting...

    If I won you $1,000.00, what...

    Years ago we used to have pools at work that we'd all go into. I won quite a few nice ones and my co-worker never did. I didn't want to go in on some big horse race.. Kentucky Derby? I forget... but my c0-worker buddy did. My co-worker was off from work and asked me to pick his horse (you...

    Is There No One Else????? Lol

    I get it.. the joy of putting cracks in your walls from sheer marshall volume. I don't ever get there anymore but I remember.. lol; I get it. The thing is, I enjoy playing at a whisper volume as well. The tone change doesn't stop me from enjoying my playtime. The only time I play loud...

    Anyone Here Car Mechanically Inclined?

    ? One of my older cars sometimes acts like the car battery is dead. Occasionally I turn the key and I hear 1 click. If I turn the key rapidly 6 or 7 times it starts. Lights and dummy lights look strong... old battery was doing the same ( I just replaced w/ new batt) Mechanic's are useless so...

    Original Throw Back Song.

    Hi all, Work's been nuts so I haven't been writing but tonight while listening to old material I ran across this and a few other songs. I think this was part of my last musical gasp before giving up on my music related dreams. The band was SUICIDE BRIDE. I wrote the music for 4 songs on this cd...

    My Instru-mental.

    I've been really unmotivated for a while so I figured I'd try and get out of it. I think the only instrumental I ever wrote I did while in beginning of high school. Well, here goes. Hard rock with all solos. I'm exhausted. I did a rough mix but now it's time for key lime pie and cable. I...

    Original Remixed.

    Hi All, I posted this maybe 2 years ago. I am having probs with my notebook I record on so instead I am going back and trying to improve the mixes of older songs as best I can. This is a slow orchestrated number I wrote, arranged, played everything except drums and vocals ( I wrote the...
