    Where do I even begin? (Danny Gatton content)

    Half this post is about how the heck to even begin learning a bit of this classic Danny Gatton magic, the other half is to just enjoy this entire tune and of course the absolute clinic of a solo. Let me know what ya know, and some tips on where to begin.

    One more thing I just learned to like about TDPRI

    Most threads don't live too long. It's nice! I have a new Tacoma ordered and I've started putzing around a forum dedicated to owners of that vehicle. I joined hoping to get some good advice about general maintenance, good accessories, or otherwise helpful tips. But wow, almost every thread...

    Amp tech/repair in Denver, CO

    There is a very old thread here covering the same question (circa 2013), but I believe a new one is warranted. Can anyone give me some options for a good tube amp tech or repair shop in the greater Denver area? Anywhere along the front range works though, Denver through Fort Collins. (I'll...

    What album have you listened to more than any other?

    I grew up listening to some really good music thanks to my parents. They loved the BoDeans a ton and my dad had a double-CD live collection called Joe Dirt Car. Those discs spent their entire lives in the family minivan and got worn out from passing by the felt dust barrier on the CD player...

    Weird... are these pickups out of phase with standard wiring?

    Last night I installed an AVRI '62 custom tele bridge pickup back into my AVRI 62 custom tele. I bought it used, it came with Lindy Fralin stock tele pickups in it, and the original pickups in a small box on the side. I ended up using the original pickups to complete another tele build and...

    Help with dates on a '69 Super Reverb

    Hey everyone, it's been a while since I kicked around here but I need your help! I don't know vintage amps very well so can some of you folks who can read transformer/chassis dates without a reference guide weigh in for me? Is everything legit? Are there any questions I should ask the seller...

    Auto body repair scammers

    My car is just a couple years old but it has a few dents from people hitting my car when it was parked. I'm the kind of lucky such that no one ever leaves a note... Anyway, One of them is pretty bad, a youth-football sized dent in the front driver side fender. The body shops I've talked to...

    You can't really rewind a pickup

    Right? I've seen some stuff lately about repairing vintage pickups where the coil was compromised. Sure you can use the same magnets, pole pieces, and plastic bits, but the coil is the majority of the pickup's voice right? Or not right? haha... I guess a decent question to ask at this...

    NMD - a slight change of pace

    I believe I forgot to post a NGD when I got a danelectro 12 string a while ago, so I'm not gonna miss this chance to post about a newbie! My childhood memories from summertime are filled with the sounds of my neighbor sitting outside playing his mandolin and singing to himself, he worked as an...

    Vox AC15 and a homemade ABY switch

    I have seen a few threads along the lines of this but it seems the jury is still out on a few points I'm most interested in. Any help you guys can provide is much appreciated! I can't bring myself to spend money on an ABY stompbox (it's basically just switches and wire...) so I wanna build...

    Saw The Darkness the other night

    The way I always explained this band to people who might only remember their hit, if anything, is "they've got two lanky English dudes who shred Les Pauls." I saw them on Saturday night here in Denver with a big group of my friends and band mates. It was actually my birthday (I'm now 26) and...

    Just in case you forgot about Steve Hunter...

    You've made a big mistake! This album gets my vote for best live album of all time. The magic of Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner together always amazes me. Big thanks to my Dad for showing me this when I was under 10 years old. I started playing when I was 12, a year and a half later he...

    Fender Reverb amps, take it easy on me!

    Hey everyone, I have a really simple question based purely on my lack of experience with the Reverb family of Fender amps. Of course this is (nearly) everyone's favorite Super, Twin, Deluxe, Princeton etc. amps (is there an etc.? or did I get most of them? haha). I'd love some help...

    GC backorder help

    Good afternoon everyone, I just wanna know if anyone has some experience with a guitar on backorder from Guitar Center. I know GC is usually lame but this isn't a thread to bash them cause I got a sweet deal on a 12-string Danelectro that I'm really excited for! The backorder dates keep...

    I have a challenge for you...

    Present your best argument for having an on/off switch for the headlights on your car, I haven't heard any that satisfy me. My $0.02: Lately I've seen a lot of people driving around in the dark (well past dusk...) without their lights on. If I was 5 seconds behind a particular left turn going...

    Good luck shopping for caps...

    While shopping for caps to put together my 4-way tele circuit with a half-out-of-phase switch, I've noticed a couple websites with seemingly no regard for the difference between mfd, Mfd, and µfd. I was not very good in my analog circuits class back in the day so maybe I'm over thinking it, but...

    NPR TDC: raw tele tone

    I'm sure some of you have heard of Margaret Glaspy, but check out her Tiny Desk Concert if you haven't. These have always been a great way for me to discover new music which isn't always as easy as it is when you're living in a college dorm room. Her guitar sounds incredible, some serious...

    Recommend a "fancy" wiring style for my new build

    I am working on my first partscaster with a pre-fabricated body from Warmoth and all the spare parts I have lying around, I'm working on the finish now. I want to have a plan ready when it comes time to wire and assemble the instrument and I'm looking for cool ways to wire up two stock pickups...

    Songs that are "too good to learn"

    There are a few songs that when I hear them I think, "man, this is awesome, I wish I could play that." But then I just keep listening and never get around to learning them, and soon I intentionally do not pursue it and keep it in a little vault of "songs that I love but want to stay naive on...

They were all amphitheater shows thank goodness and the sound was always great, and the setlists just kept getting better each time...
