    electric 12-string gauge question for the sage.

    Pyramids by choice...... Tried both the Ric round wound and Pyramid flat wounds and feel that the the Pyramids give perhaps a greater contrast between the high octave chime and a sort of bass thump that the flat wound bring. But then I'm looking for an early Byrds-type sound.

    Great local guitar heroes

    Local heroes Loads & loads of them, all better than me :oops: But for any UK people a guy called Jed Thomas is quite simply very, very good! He was rumoured to have an ex Rory Gallacher Strat (red top) and his set used to be heavily orientated towards the said Irish genius. Since then he has...

    Good albums that were all but ignored, and forgotten...

    STONE ROSES.... Stone Roses Their first album was voted the best album of the.....? gosh I forget what, but everyone in the UK voted it the best, which was a major surprise. Listening to it again, it really is very good. The second I prefered but it is a great deal more Zep in concept...

    It's hosing down outside, the roof is leaking, I have the V-Roys on the cd and I'm thinking. Lets talk about the unsung heros of the guitar, sidemen. The best I've heard recently were Buddy Miller with Emmy Lou Harris and (I think if I remember!) John Jackson with Shelby Lynne. There must be so...

    Who's your favorite Weather Channel babe?

    French weather babes... I've spent a winter watching French TV and became quite obsessed with their weather "babes" The definition is used quite loosely since the age range is fairly generous. Let's say there's something there for everyone. Anyway I'm delighted that I'm not the only one that...

    Jonny Lang "long Time Coming" ... any good ?

    Never been a fan but.... caught a session he did for the BBC in the UK and have to say I was impressed by what I saw live. Made me think I should delve (good word eh!) deeper.

    JFK Assassination: 40 Years Ago Today

    Just back from the pub... when the news came through in the UK. Like everyone says, we can all remember where we were when the story broke. Total shock..... Lots of interesting TV programmes on British TV over the weekend including a very informative one last night that stated, with the aid of...

    Vinyl or CD's...which is superior??

    Well........ like the rest of the world, I converted my collection to CD, mainly for the convience and the ability to draw on them with a ball-point pen or boil the in soup if the mood took me. Then one day I dusted off the turntable and stuck on an old Byrds LP. Perhaps it's the old nostalgia...

    Rickenbacker 425 (ntc)

    I forgot..... look at for full description and variations of the 420/425 including the vibrato.

    Rickenbacker 425 (ntc)

    Rics.... Ian The Rickenbacker book gives the 420 as non-vibrato from '65-'83 but just to confuse the issue lists the 425 from '58-'72 and says that the 420 replaced the non-vibrato 425 in '65(!!). Rics are not as collectable as you might think so don't pay too much. The only ones that seem to...

    Finger Picks? (little Tele content)

    I saw him..... McGuinn, a couple of years ago and he was still using metal finger picks then. That's how he gets the "sound", strangely enough on the up-pick which in a way negates the Rics different stringing of the 12 string. :?:
