Still shoveling, Ag.  These last 3 weeks have been the worst of the winter, with a dozen other problems tossed in.  I could whine about it for hours...  :P

I've been so preoccupied with everything going wrong around here for the last week I hadn't even noticed, RJ.  I bet White caught it...

oops, I was just reading the text message that I copied into my previous 'shout' and realized my buddy used some colorful language.   :o  

I see someone already corrected it for me.  Sorry!!  :-[

I've been working on how to improvise and just found this playlist with a metric crap-ton of guitar backing tracks. Thought I'd share.

Hey Hey, power back (for now).  But still snowing and blowing.

Wonder if Canada is getting any of this, or is it just our little treat?  :P

Well, heavy snow and 50mph winds with gusting.  Lost power about 6-7 hours ago.  Waited till it was 45 in the house to see if it would come back on before going out and starting the generator.  Hope it comes back on sometime tonight...

Tom Petty - In memorium
« on: October 04, 2017, 07:25:51 PM »
So, after hearing the sad news of Tom's passing, I decided to learn and play one of his tunes at the jam session I attend in Cambridge most Tuesdays.
I chose 'Breakdown', which I first heard from a cover by Grace Jones. I liked it then and I like it now.....

Unfortunately, since so many guitarists turned up on Tuesday, I didn't get time to play it. Maybe on Thursday, at the Newmarket jam session.

So, this afternoon, I decided to have a shot at recording said toon. Here is the result (a 'puter crash made re-recording gits a necessity  >:( )
I'm quite pleased with it, even though the lead guitar tone is a little dark.

Guitars are through my Hughes and Kettner Tour Reverb, lead is through the crunch channel.
Vox are recorded using my new Rode condenser mic, double tracked.

Well, if that's the best you can do.......  :-*

But seriously, excellent stuff, White.  Tom would be proud - and probably want you as the new main Heartbreaker.  Really nice work, mate...  ;)
