    Mods, please feel free to move this post if I have it in the wrong place...

    Well, it's been a long slog, but finally my tune "49 Cross 61" has broken into the Top Ten of the www.MusicTampaBay.com!!!! Now that's all great and well, but I want to be #1!!! (Don't we all?!?!?! :D) So I need some help here, if I may ask... go to www.MusicTampaBay.com, and on the front page, there is a list of the Top Ten songs this week... just click on #10 (49 Cross 61)... the Top Ten is determined by online voting only, so needles to say, the more votes I get, the higher up on the charts we go...

    Thanks again in advance,
    Franc Robert

    Went to your My Space wanting to hear the song but there's some kinda rap song that starts playing automatically and I couldn't shut it off. What am I doin wrong?

    That was some comment made by another person, seems they embedded a music player and set it to auto play. Right now it's the first comment showing; click the pause button and it'll stop.

    Anyway, Great song Franc! Not just that one either, the others on your myspace page are great as well.

    Thanks again for all the kind words!

    Yeah, there's some weird bug going on with MySpace (when isn't there?) so hopefully they can get that fixed here...

    Another update: 49 Cross 61 is now #2!!! Yee-hah!!!!!

    Really nice playing. I'd like to know more about your setup. What amp pedal combo are you using. Btw, I voted too.

    add thanks!

    Thanks for the vote, kddean. The setup was this for guitars and amps:

    Guitars:
    '83 telecaster, Epiphone Dot, Warmoth parts strat, Martin acoustic, no-name dobro, harmony lap steel

    Amps:
    Carvin Vintage 16, Univox U45B, Gibson GA-15 RVT Explorer

    For 49 Cross 61, it's Telly into the Carvin, Epi Dot into the Univox. Amps each had 2 mics, an SM-57 up close and a AKG condensor about 6' away, 5' up, to get some room effect. Solo was with the Epi.

    The whole thing was recorded on GarageBand v2.0 (ancient technology!!!) No pedals were used in recording, though I oftentimes use them live.

    TeleGlider-not sure what you mean about links, but I'd be happy to oblige... and thanks for voting!!!

    Guilty as charged!!!:D

    If you really want to hear how that guitar sounds clean, listen to "Monday Morning Blues". Guitar>Carvin amp>2 mics>recorder... it really is a GREAT guitar...
