    Pick Attack Depth - How To Assess?

    I use Dunlop grey 0.88 nylon picks and hold them at 90 degrees and looking at some of the pics above maybe I have them sticking out a bit too far. Guess it goes back to learning to play bass with a pick in the 1960s

    I too subscribed for a good chunk of the 70s and hung on pretty much every word, we were always a few weeks or more behind release date here in Oz. Thanks for the trip back in time

    Discovering Deep Purple

    Having attempted to come to terms with a beautiful custom shop scalloped strat I couldn't agree more. It was very difficult not to go sharp, I guess he had a very light touch

    Marty Stuart - Going Going Gone

    Not a problem with that, I was making the obvious point that the Tele has many voices once you understand it. I wish I knew 50 years ago what I know now, I'd still have the lovely early 60s double bound Tele that I let go

    Simplest / best app to record acoustic songs 'ideas' to iPhone?

    I've emailed an mp3 to Julie and she recorded a memo on her iPhone singing along. Dropped the amr file into Reaper and had a solid demo to start working with, obviously the vocal needed to be tracked properly but it was all there. Vocal, acoustic, cello & bodhran

    A conversation starter about mixing.....

    When I'm recording vocals I always prepare a bunch of tracks and when I hear, I'm going to do a run through first I always grab the first time through. The vibe and emotion is generally stronger and it becomes more clinical with each take YMMV

    Stuie is a scary but great bloke to jam with, last jam we had he spent most of the afternoon on pedal steel and really was bringing it home

    Oh well. The UK welcomes its new fast food overlords.

    Honest question. Apart from the addictive sugar content in most fast food and the fact that it is aimed at kids and time poor, all designed to hook the consumer. Do Americans eat this type of take away because you don't "have" to tip

    Rory Gallagher: The Complete 1991 "Guitar Player" Interview (HD Audio)

    Don't know that I'd call Rory obscure, he was huge while he was still with us, like many I've been a fan since the Taste days Forgotten may be a better description, sadly

    Do you try to cut down on plastic?

    At 70 something I'm not having any more than my five but it was fun in the making ;) We have 5 kids, 10 grandkids and 2 great grandies. There will be no more grandkids the cue is in the rack, in the case of the males the magazine has been disconnected from the gun, daughter has bits sorted too

    Do you try to cut down on plastic?

    I don't know if you can view this outside of Australia, you may have to have an account to view it but it's free and an Australian govt owned service so unlikely to bombard you with ads etc.

    This forum is making me crazy, last night I dreamed about Blowtorch!

    I used to have a lot of fun dreams when I was much younger, these days I don't wake up and find the sheets need washing. Who knows, in another 15 or 20 years someone might be washing my sheets for a different reason

    Do you try to cut down on plastic?

    Should have added. I have heard that plastic can only be recycled a certain small number of times and one of our philanthropic billionaires has set one of his companies on a path to try and find a way to make it many times if not infinite.
