Lotsa speed, no taste.
Why was it neccessary to insult him? If you don't like that style then just don't post any comment. IMO, you're the one with no taste.
We all have opinions, I expressed mine, and you have expressed yours. Thanks for your viewpoint.
Their point is to be constructive with the comment. Saying something as blunt as what you posted can be misinterpreted as an attack rather easily.
That would be great as a road trip solo
Please post a video or so of your stuff.
Good stuff, OP. Really nice playing!
You seem cool. Except you forgot to add, FIRST!
And the congregation said AMEN and AMEN!
Ok, IMHO, the player in the video displayed incredible technique, something I could NEVER hope to achieve, but my thought was the playing lacked soul and feel, just technique for technique's sake. Taste is very subjective, and the statement reflected my reaction at the moment. YMMV
His intent seemed to be to display the Boss Katana. Not a particular style or technique. Maybe if you asked for a more SOULFUL example he would give you one.
Fixed it for ya!
Yep, people who don't "get" speed often say "no taste"
That was fast, busy, and tasty AF
I wish I had that technical facility, but I don't, not like that, I come from the more Katana bluesy emotive thing, milking notes and making the girls cry.
The great thing for the Katana is it directed the listener to the playing. The wonderful tone was never an issue.
Really nice job,,,
There is a huge difference between critique and criticism.
You offered no critique.
There was plenty of good points to critique and just leave the negative criticism out???
Here is my Kat 50 in my slow hand style. I fill it up with more chord related things to avoid having to play fast in which I would love to do.
Since we're talking about the Katana tone, here is a contribution to the scope of this little wonder amp,,, this is just the amp and it's built in effects, no outboard pedals.
I used my Zoom Q3 recorder to record both the backing track coming out of my stereo and about 2ft from the Katana, so both together in a room recording, gorilla. I have to say this gorilla style recording really favors the Katana, that Zoom produced a nice guitar recording imo.
Katana 50/'96 G&L ASAT Special
I bought it in '96,
With respect to the OP, @Northern Tele I’d say it looked like it was a whole lotta fun, or at least as much fun as a Canadian can have without apologizing to someone. As far as the Katana demo goes, I’m not entirely convinced one way or another.
As to our colleague @ASATKat, I very much enjoyed the track and it helped demo that the Katana has a lot of versatility and is not a one-trick pony.
It seems more of chops demonstration than anything about the amp to me which is fine but the title is a little misleading.
Exactly, it doesn't do every tone, but what it does do it does very well. Better than the other tone shaping companies, but some are picking up their game. (Are you listening Marshall, Fender?),,, they just have to UP their game, because -
Superior tone is no longer a quest, it's a benchmark, a standard. Superior tone is where our tone quest should begin, and in my opinion the op has done an excellent job in living up to that new standard.
