    My tribute to this phenomenal song, album and band.

    Trying to get a little Geordie Walker going in my usual synthy arrangement style.

    The guitar is my Warmoth baritone strat tuned to C. Friedmann Smallbox model in my Axe Fx III.

    Noncommittal - Love Like Blood


    Let med know what you think of it?

    The original is a great, great song. I'm really liking your version as well - good stuff! I'll have to have a peruse of your youtube channel later, but right now I gotta get the kids to bed. Kudos!

    Nice work. Great KJ album too. Reminds me of my migration to CA. I read they're touring with TOOL.

    I found a ES295 type husk & was in the process of turning it into a Geordie type copy complete with the tailpiece. The neck has issues so it's getting returned. I'm bummed.

    Thanks man. My music is all 80'es based - from new wave, poprock to synthpop. I try to release one new track a month.

    Thanks man. I'll look out for that Tool tour and hope they bring Killing Joke along with them if and when they play Denmark. That would be awesome.

    Sorry to hear about your guitar. I never really bonded with semi's - I'm a strat/tele person. But I'm on the lookout for a Gretsch now.

    295's are full hollow. Geordie Walker plays one.


    Not to worry though. I found a White Falcon copy.

    Nice! I was a bit young in the 80s but got into some of that stuff a bit later, particularly the more Goth stuff. Going to see Sisters of Mercy in about a month in fact!

    I listened to a few of your tracks - good stuff! Looking forward to listening through more of it when I get time.

    I'm impressed with your synth work. I'm trying to add that to my own sound but it's a big learning curve for me.

    Ahh - full hollow. That's not for me either. I was intrigued by the White Falcon (I blame Billy Duffy) - that's until I actually tried one. Very cool guitar - but way to "boxy" for my liking.

    Sisters of Mercy is also a great band. I'm very much into them and bands like The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cult, Echo & the Bunnymen ... you get the picture ...

    Thanks again.

    Full Disclosure: I started out playing synths and drummachines in the mid 80's and later learned the guitar ... or some of it. :)
