I prefer the distorted one. Did you use chorus on this?

Thanks Slim. I honestly thought the same thing to myself when I listened...thanks for noticing. Playing in a couple of bands over the past 3 years has helped tremendously . Just playing and playing and playing...

This thread has gone into turbo speed with all of the posts...and now we have JP9! Tomorrow I will try to get to everybody else's posts for a listen!

I did grab a listen to JP#9 - that is an awesome chord progression, just like Time by Pink Floyd, but starting on a Dm rather than Em.

Hi-Hat! Always love the simplicity of your tone and the laid back way you put what you have to say across. Country vibes yes. And did I hear a passing whiff of Jethro Tull?

Ron DUDE!!! I like the final one above the others. Nice tone*. A melody that sticks to you and the fast runs. Dont re-do it. Its good as it is.
*Recording tip: Don't allow your notes to 'sustain' for long tho. Sounds like you have your GAIN set to 27.9! (this coming from someone who usually cranks it up :P ). Let it fade naturally. Oh! Could not find your CLEAN tone playing. Was it the 3rd take?

Thanks for the compliments everyone. My idea was to lull everyone first (with a boring repetitive sleepy surf vibes same ol' riff) and then hit it with both barrels straight between the eyes. Didnt work. Hahahaha!!

Western Spaghetti Surf you say Slim? Nah, it was madness from the third verse. Wasnt even aware that I was 'appregiating'. I just let loose cos I was not sure what else to play. Just drone the 'A' and smash it with different chord shapes is all I can think of. Yes, missed and wrong notes aplenty.

When I played it back tho, I heard influences of Costello, Audioslave, Wallflowers, Hank, Knopfler, Fleetwood Mac, SRV and some others in there. Go figure.

In case you're interested, I experimented with the guitar tone for this one. Its my first time doing it. The SX LP copy DRY signal went straight into the laptop and I used VSTs to shape the tone in REAPER. Amp simulator (glow, minimal GAIN, mic'd, 4x12 cab - warm), Ambience Reverb (I LOVE THIS VST!), Delay, Presence, EQ, Limiter, (all free btw!!) and thats what I got. Monitored REAL-TIME with earphones. Kinda like it. No latency which was pleasantly surprising.

I could get that 'soft' & 'hard' picking/strikes (Slim complimented on this. THX!) I could not get in my usual set up. You should try this sometime. Let me know and I'd happy to point you to the right direction.

Thanks once again for giving this a listen. Appreciate it though I know I should've worked on it more.

On your distortion pedal you'll have 2 knobs*. One is labelled "Level" and the other is is "Drive". Use the drive control to adjust the amount of distortion, then use the level knob to adjust the volume of the effect so that the guitar volume is similar (or louder/softer per your taste) when engaging/disengaging the pedal.

* Note: there are likely other knobs (e.g. tone, hi, low, etc.), but level and drive are the ones to adjust here. The nomenclature may vary also with effect make and model...volume instead of level, gain instead of drive, etc. If you are using a channel switching amp instead on an individual effect, use a similar approach.

I know your sick of my melody lol, but here is my final, sounds much better through headphones or real speakers.

I like this quite a bit. This has a "put together" feel too it...not just directionless playing. Some really nice bends and runs in there also. I like the combination of the tone you are using with your playing.

OK, will keep it as 'the final' then, thanks!
The clean one was take 2, this one...

haha gain is 'just' on 10, let me look how I had things set for this....
OK, this is what I actually had, i guess i didn't even have a compressor in the mix, the sustain must just be from the amp simulation.
