Stayed clean as possible
@Mellencaster - nice melodic take Mike; I also liked the bridge... clean is fun and funky
Very nice phrasing and tones, Mike. Nice lines on the middle especially!
@Mellencaster : obviously, "clean as possible" does not mean "clean"; there´s a nice drive in your sound. The way you play it sounds quite bluesy to me; nice!
cool. thanks a lot!
Huh...I think my take was somewhat...erm oh well it is what it is..
@NWinther : a really hard and heavy version! The more astonishing is the start of the quiet part; nice clean sound; and, love the ending: distorted guitar stops abruptly, goes over into clean - very nice!
Thanks for letting me Feel So Funky,
I have an ASAT PROBLEM with the hi E and even the B. They are sitaring or making an eeeoow sound when I sustain. I've never had a fret milling. Is that what I need. The saddles don't look worn but changing angles seems to help just a little but it's always there.
I ask you guys because you hear my playing and I would think collectively you have lots of experience with this problem.
What do think Gentlemen? Please don't tell me you enjoy the sitaring lol,,,
Hi All , here's mine .
I hope you enjoy
PS thanks Mike ! this was a real cool track to play over
@NWinther Smoking take, Niels and a sweet tone!
@ ASATKat Funky o licious ASATkat .For the sizzling strings, I would check the neck for a slight back bow. It might need an adjustment.
@KennyWTelejazz Sweet production Kenny , very dynamic take and well played.
The quickest of quicks from me. I listened through, then used my partso into a G2D Cream-Tone box. It responds nicely when you ride the volume on the guitar... so I did!
simoncroft That was enjoyable and uniquely played. Very nicely done
Damn you're good,,
Thanks for the complement and the advice. No backbow, just the right amount relief.
Can a saddle cause this prob?
You can adjust the saddles and may get rid of the sitar effect but it may not be the underlining problem. Like you mentioned it might be in need of a fret crowning There are a few things to look for like the strings are seated properly in the saddles, high frets, neck tilt, and the nut slots
My G&L has a custom mechanism for neck tilt but I've never touched it.
After 23 yrs of playing blues that requires lots of big bends, the frets have been worn, I don't get deep wear grooves because of all the bending I do, mostly micro bending, so the neck looks good but the wear is masked by the constant lateral movement.
If the tops are flat and it might be time after 23 years of playing for a fret dressing as long there are enough fret tops to crown.
Thanks. Will check out.
Sorry guys, back to the thread, pm me on the eeeoow problem if you like ok =)
@ASATKat : you have a quite distinct sound here; maybe the frequent use of the forths? Anyhow, doesn´t sound like pentatonic scale.
@KennyWTelejazz : superb playing, and moreover it´s more a band production than just a track with guitar. Love for example the opening with the guitar doubling the bass and the way you chopped the new ending. Very good.
@simoncroft : you sure made it your own. Very nice use of volume pot!
