I'm loving having a Gordon Smith Graduate 60 back in my life again!
The neck is an absolute joy to play and the mini humbuckers sound fecking ace too.
The playing could be a bit better but here's some soloing nonsense to let you guys hear...
Amp: Cornell Romany Custom
Pedals: Keeley Baked Mod TS9, Digitech Obscura (for a smidge of tape echo)
Guitar face: Mine
Feels like I should introduce you to that Gordon Smith Graduate 60^ properly
And let you hear the huge variety of tones that those coil splittable mini humbuckers can offer.
Excuse the rough playing
But there's a helluva lot to love about these pickups!
Cornell Romany Custom
Digitech Obscura delay
Keeley Baked Mod TS9 when gain is required...
Ahhh can't believe i'm ruddy doing this, All 3 covers so far on youtube and made public.
I very well know this needs improvement, as do the other two, But i certainly know I am getting better, so just the first few of the 52 I intend to record maybe not up to scratch particularly. But i've worked hard on them anyways and for now that'll be enough.
Kinda wish i'd stop getting the desire to record at past midnight however
I won't spam onto here so all the covers will go on that channel, albeit I might post any that feel like big milestones for me.
And when I get a new webcam it'll fix the weird video placement haha.
Nice one @JimothyBeed
Great to finally see you too!
Bonus kudos for the Nightmare Before Xmas tshirt too
And that's a sweet, punchy bass tone you have there too bud.
Maybe I missed it but I don't think you've posted the link to your YT channel?
Pop it up and I'll go subscribe...
Thanks , Here it is
I look forward to seeing your rig.
I will do the same, a bit later today.
Big Kahunas for showing us a pink cover. Keep going dude, practice makes perfect. (and I didn't see an awful wrong with it. )
Haha thanks Something i'd learnt ages ago and still retained most of it from memory and a quick scan of a tab.
Nice to hear that There's certainly room there, but I feel that's a big step from the Still Alive one I did first of all.
Havent' had neighbour complaints for last night so looks like i'm safe to record without headphones even late at night which helps me relax a bit more.
@JimothyBeed - ugh, you are NOT helping my bass GAS. Nice playing, too.
Decided to make a video with the new Tele by using it to create a loop with the RC-3 and go through some of the tones in a short jam. Didn't do a particularly good job in many aspects but had a blast recording it, I want to continue with a couple of guitar demos in the future but haven't figured out the format yet so this will do until then:
Holy cow, awesome job and a lovely tele can't wait for more of that
Thanks man! Love the specs of the '52, feels just right to play. Didn't expect to have that much fun putting something together in the looper but I'm definitely going to play around more with it in the future.
That Greta sounds so good. You're turning into a monster player.
I'm going to have to cop some licks off you!
That's put me in the mood for some Allman Brothers now.
Tha was fantastic @Strigidae
Great playing and a ton of sweet tones too!
Thanks for taking the time to make the vid bud
Brilliant (and inspiring) stuff...
Thank you! That amp has grown on me immensely the last couple of months, just love the cleans it provides at a decent volume. If the sound moves in the direction of Allman Brothers that's a huge compliment since them and their genre is one of my biggest inspirations. I've come to terms with never being technically good as a player, but at least I can play the same old stuff in a different order and key.
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! The positive response definitely makes me want to try out more ideas.
Just had to pop back for another listen - yep still awesome.
Love the way you build this track up with the looper.
I got pretty much the same guitar this weekend (just not the Korina one).
How do you like the neck? I'm totally loving the deep U profile
The neck was one of the main reasons I bought the guitar, definitely the most comfortable profile I've tried. Often when it comes to Fender I have to pass on a guitar because the neck is too thin, not with the 52. Combine the deep U with a 7,25" radius and I'm a happy camper.
