I guess it's a good thing they weren't a funk band then. ;)
I'd say they've maintained a solid followimg for so long because of a whole lot of really good songs that were always played from the heart, shows that were played without a net, and that thing that unexplainable to anybody who wasn't...
IMO if you have a boost pedal 'always on' you're not playing the right amp. I use a Fat Boost as a boost, for when I want a little more volume for solos. Otherwise my amp is set for the gain/volume I need.
FWIW my Strat and Tele both have vintage spec pickups.
Totally the truth. A couple months ago I met friends out for a beer and there was an acoustic guy playing. He was good enough, and was playing a pricy Turner acoustic. It was the worst, harshest, tone you could imagine. It made it difficult for me to enjoy conversation with my friends. Not...
I play in an original band. We play places that hire a lot of cover bands. People like us and we often get comments like, "Its nice to see something other than a cover band playing the same old songs."
I saw that one, The Revivalists. They are an awesome band, I've seen them twice, killer stuff and the lead singer really knows how to work a crowd.
I love data. What I hate is when I'm asked to analyze, or respond to bad data. Sorry, but if you're not going to tell me how the data was collected, or you expect me to ignore variables that had an effect on the outcome I'm looking at, then I don't want to talk about data.

I love this verse:
From the corner of my eye I saw the sun explode
I didn't look directly 'cause it would have burned my soul
When the smoke and thunder cleared enough to look around
I heard a sweet guitar lick...
Setting aside the fact that one still needs to buy stuff to do that, it doesn't mean you'll know what to do with it. I've heard a lot of stuff people recorded at home that sound exactly like....someone got a couple of cheap mics and recorded an album at home.
IMO what you are really paying...
I wouldn't call it charity. Some kickstarters are like that, but in most you get something. More often than not it's basically preselling a product. Most that I've seen that are looking for money for nothing, generally don't get funded.
When my band did a kickstarter everyone got at least...
Wearing shoes inside my own house? Odd....why would I want to track whatever is on the bottom of my shoes from walking around outside all over my floors and carpets?
Plus it's a comfort thing. If I had my shoes on all day at work, the first thing I want to do when I get home is take them off.
Any amp can be too loud if you turn the volume knob too far clockwise. Conversely, any amp can be quiet enough if you don't turn the volume knob too far clockwise.
If one truly needs whisper quiet they'd be better off with a headphone amp.
Of course, YMMV and all that, I've always owned...
That's a good point. The amplifier is the other half of an electric guitar and the earliest amplifiers used tubes so that's the sound we all think of when we think 'electric guitar.' Thing is, that's what all the modeling amps are trying to simulate with ICs and software. I find it easier to...
Fare the Well was the remaning four members getting together one more time, for the last time. None of them said they were going to quit playing entirely.
But yeah....Peter Shapiro offered them all truckloads of money so they decided they could tolerate each other for five shows.
