Re: If we make it (Better Luck Next Year reviews)

Round One: Midnight, after work. Hell's Bells and Greenhead IPA. Everyone gets a complaint. add - The synth flourish in between lines sounds great, I thought I was hearing an effected guitar for a moment. Love the guitar tone and crisp but warm attack of it. The melody is easy and relaxed, catchy a...

Re: Rest In Peace

Wow. Like'm or not, Van Halen was a massive game changer of his time and for a long time. Underneath the pyrotechnics of his playing is some nice phrasing, some very good songs, and some seriously gnarly guitar tones. RIP.

Re: Telecasters of Song Fight!

This week's fight song has both Telecaster and Stratocaster in it. I panned them hard left and right, Tele comes in first, then Strat, playing higher parts, second. Halfway through they reverse parts. I used the same amp and settings, compressor, mic and preamp, without any changes, just switched gu...

Re: Niv and the Exploration

Niv - Any idea how many fight winners or ducks made it to your gems list? S'pose it doesn't matter, as it's all your personal preference and both winners and ducks alike may not have deserved their tallies anyway. Just a thought.

Re: Pedals!

Yeah, that JHS lineup looks pretty cool. Look for some to collect them all, which would certainly cover a lot of ground. Heh. Bad pun. They almost look like the generic items from Repo Man (food, beer, etc) which is a big appeal, actually. I have a couple of JHS pedals, they're good. One of my favor...

how quickly they forget. :P HA! Busted! No, no, I didn't actually forget, I guess I was just focusing on myself (It's all the rage these days/years) and thought of what a big deal it was, to me, to attempt what I did. You were great and it was an honor to have you there, seriously. I hope that if a...

Re: Not much to do but (Sitting In The Life Boat reviews)

Many thanks to all of the commentators, always appreciated whether good comments or otherwise. And nothing wrong with criticism, its what helps'ya learn and grow. Even old farts like me. Just wanted to say, not defensively but, rather, explanatorily, that I almost kept my tune in the bank this week ...

Re: Not much to do but (Sitting In The Life Boat reviews)

Ken's Festival Of Peskiness and Entitlement Instantly catchy pop. While the verses are pleasant and breezy, it's the "aah" sigh of the chorus, so happy when it arrives, that's a joy. The real hook here is, of course, the guitar bit between verses and lines of lyrics within. You found the right amou...

Re: Was Song Fight Live your first gig?

SF! Live, to which I've thus far only attended once, was not my first gig. It was, however, the first and only time I stood alone and performed with guitar and vocals. (I never insult singers by calling what I do singing) The bands I played in wisely left vocals to others. I'd love to, and hope to, ...

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

As a work 2nd shift every other weekend guy, I've been unable to watch much of this. But I've been zipping through a lot of it and it's very enjoyable. Great work by all involved, especially those who tighten all the nuts and bolts to make it work. As great as the music is, I've particularly enjoyed...

Re: Telecasters of Song Fight!

Funny, in all my years of doing whatever it is I do on guitar, I don't recall ever playing an SG. Although my very first electric looked like one, a red Kay. I have a picture of my pajamas wearing doofus self holding it, I will sadly not share here.

Is this going to be the title for the regular fight as well, or video live fight only? I hate to disappoint my legion of fans, I know, I know, settle down, but I will not be doing a video. Asking because I have today only to do a song. Thanks! Edit: Just saw the video is an optional challenge. My ba...
