My 15-year-old son heard me playing The night they drove old Dixie down on the guitar a while back.
He came to me the other day and asked who did the best version so he could find it on youtube. Ha! But at least he was able to root out the song. And he doesn't care what era it's from.
I think it records really well with a mic - but that might depend on the mic. I recorded most of my last 3 albums on it.
I've never really tried recording the clean sounds, though. Maybe I'll play around and give that a go.
It does clean pretty well, on the two cleanest amp settings. But on a tele it means taking the gain down to about 10 o'clock, which means you won't get huge volume out of it. Still way loud enough for home use, but not the ear-splitting home volume you can get on the crunchy sounds.
I love the cello. It's one of the few instruments where I buy a CD just because it says the word cello on it.
On one of my last songs I really wanted a cello solo. But I don't play cello or know anyone who does.
So, just out of interest, I tried the cello setting on my Roland Go Keys. Usually...
Thanks. No, nothing like that. I'm not much for putting myself out there. The more of that kind of thing I do, the less fun the whole thing is. So I suppose I'll settle for the appreciation of some tele players.
