Nice Tone!
« on: November 26, 2010, 09:20:19 AM »
Gotta share this one, Wednesday night I had rehersal with my church praise team.  Up until a few months ago I had to keep a live speaker cabinet off stage with no live amp on stage.  That changed a bit ago and I am able to use my combo speakers on stage now and the extension cab offstage, the offstage cab is mic'd and feeds the FOH where my Maz Jr combo is now my primary monitor on stage.

Okay, that was the background . . . .
this past Wednesday I was asked to play a couple of solos, my Parker Nite Fly in hand, and did my part and the music leader says "I can't hear you very well, please turn it up", we play the song again, "still can't you like I want to" we play it again and the other guitar player looks over and me and give me a huge smile and thumbs up, sounded sooooooo good, we'll see what happens on Sunday morning  lol  but it felt great letting my guitar rip with nice volume and sustain, at the end of the song I play a solo over half a chorus and then the rest of the band winds the song down while I let my last note swell into a nice sweet feedback hmmmmm hmmmmmm hmmmmmmm!

sorry, had to share!
Todd :)

Hey Todd, don't be sorry about sharing.  If you can't share this with other guitar players, who else would understand!!  There is nothing better than being able to go for it when the amp and guitar sound just right.  The venue has to be right and you have it be relaxed about everything, but man, when it happens, it has to be one of the best feelings in the world!!

I like it when I get to use feedback at church. [:p]
And when I get compliments on my sound. [8D]

I remember when they went to the in ear monitors at my church and they wanted us to play only thru a thing called an Axe Trak, I hated the way it sounded in my ears. Fortunately that changed and we just mic the amps now. I don't play that loud anyway. But our stage volume used to be quite loud before they went to the in ears, which is why the leadership wanted them. So now we have found a good compromise.

that is truly a blessing-  love it when it comes together like that!

I think of my church and the ancient sound system (and people...[:D]) and it boggles my mind what you guys get to do!

Yeah, and this year I get to do my first ever Christmas production at church. More loud distorted electric guitar! [:p]

I did the last two rock opera Easter productions, it was a lot of fun. We got to play all sorts of stuff - Queen, Bon Jovi, Heart, U2, The Beatles, Foo Fighters, AC/DC and others. I think we had like 22 different tunes that we adapted to the play. Anyway, it was cool to be a part of that. [8D]
