    Blues Mode Mixture (Major/Minor) Theory Questions/Discussion

    Quite the story and I am sorry to hear of your health issues. One thing you said did resonate with me- how the blues can lift your spirts like nothing else! I joke to my wife that my three favorite drugs are 1. Blues solos, 2. Sightfishing for redfish on the flats of Texas, and 3. White wine...

    Blues Mode Mixture (Major/Minor) Theory Questions/Discussion

    Thanks and I will check it out! TBH, there is not a solo I ever play that isn't off the cuff and improvised. I may have an idea of what I want to do ahead of time or may have a lick I keep coming back to during the course of the song but most of what I end up playing is just what comes out...

    Blues Mode Mixture (Major/Minor) Theory Questions/Discussion

    For playing blues (my favorite), one of the ideas, that I have seen and try to follow when mixing major/minor modes when soloing is as follows: (Assuming a song with a I-IV-V type progression, like a shuffle) When the one chord is playing, use the major pentatonic scale for the one chord...

    Your Permanently on pedals with a Tele

    My Princeton has reverb and trem so I don't really use any "always on" pedals unless I am playing in a situation where I cannot really drive the amp; and in that case I will use a JHS Morning Glory overdrive pedal.

    Help me with a major life decision

    It is crazy down here on the middle coast of Texas. Once quiet little fishing/tourist towns are now getting totally built out. More and more people are working remotely, which makes these places desirable. There are also a number of people who are used to and totally fine with one way...

    Princeton in da house

    The amp arrived. These are TOTALLY FINE for home use, at least in my house and to my ear. Great tone at a very reasonable volume. Highly, highly recommend based on what I have played so far.

    Princeton in da house

    I’ve been in serious SERIOUS ponder mode on this exact amp. Okay sound at bedroom levels? I’m talking 2 or 3 (most of my practice is early and late while the kids are sleeping).

    Kingtone Blues Power

    Anyone ever used one of these pedals with a tele and princeton reverb? Seems like all the demo videos I find are using strats.... Thanks!

    Midweek Backing Track - Blues

    Windows probably... and it looks like I can use my THR as an interface. What recording software do y'all like for Windows? Free to cheap is preferred at this point. :)

    Amp Conundrum

    Thanks, I am not doing anything to change the amp. It was represented to me that it was all original. I think that is part of the coolness and specialness of the amp. I'm going to ponder a bit. In other news, I was just playing on the THR and my FIL who is in town for Easter was sitting on the...

    Midweek Backing Track - Blues

    So I don't know how to record to a computer to share, but I have been playing over this track a lot this week. A fun one to get lost in and lets you have a fair amount of freedom to explore. Thank you for posting it.

    Amp Conundrum

    Honestly, I have around $1,000 to throw at this issue. Maybe a bit more if I sold the National amp (which IS for sale on Reverb if anyone wants to check it out, DM me for a link to the listing). Also, I really really thank everyone's opinions so far. Varied, but all good, and definitely gives...
