    LOL Mateo, yes I'm afraid I am an 80s kind a guy... brought up on 80s rock...and 80s teen movies

    On a serious note, it's very difficult imo to get that major scale working in a way that doesnt sound too cliched or twee.

    Some guys can do it very well, but if your not careful it can always sound a bit too happy clappy.

    I'll check your solo out this eve JohnJ.

    Excellent John! Your lead takes the song to a completely different place, feel, etc. Amazing how a nice rythm track can provide the canvas for such diverse paintings.

    78-83 for me!! Just caught the punk era and moved into 'TNWOBHM', (The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal), The first Iron Maiden line up, Saxon, Judas Preist et al!!!
    I'm sure Russ must have been about at the same kinda time!!

    Great track Black, I really liked that!!

    Like that a lot John, sounds real nice. Like that tone too. How do you get that sound? whats your record setup... thats kinda the sound I want to get, maybe a bit twangier, but basically thats it.

    Think I'm gonna have a go at this, since well, I was .... 7 years old when the 80's ended... hehe

    Maybe a generational gap will show here, I rarely listen to "80's music".

    BRB.


    OK.. Back... nice "first song"...

    simple stuff in mine. clean tone as always, guess I should have cleaned it up a bit, but oh well. Just for kicks anyway... its kinda fun playing some pop every now n then suppose.

    Thanks...I use a Line 6 Pod XT Pro direct into my PC recording with Sonar 4 (Cakewalk) to record. The image I attached show the settings. You can implement the sound using stomp boxes based on the settings shown. I also have a setup with a DigiTech X-Series DigiDelay and a Fender 650 Peformer Amp where I can get the same sound. I call it my "Rich Delay" setting.

    Hey that was a nice take you had there too...

    Yea...that's because there were several years that all I listened to was Clapton and Blues...That is my default sound, I am trying to learn some new styles (like your take) but if I am not thinking about what I am playing that's where I go...

    What is that? Is it like having sound pedals but in a program on your PC instead? Sorry still in the basic mode of guitar only right now.. hope to delve deeper if I ever get the electric I'm savin for.

    Me too!! Once my funding comes through!!!

    Black, it's a multi effects unit/amp simulator which can be linked via USB to your 'puter, with several downloadable/ uploadable scenario uses!! ( I think that's the best way to describe it, please all feel free to correct me!!!)
    A great teaching/learning tool as well as a great recording tool!

    Sounds like a gear question (which is not allowed) so you did not hear me answer...... Its a rack mount effects processor that you don't need a computer for but it integrates with a computer through a USB port. I would tell you more BUT you will need to take a look out on the web to find more info because we are really not supposed to talk gear on iBreathMusic...
