Hans threw down the gauntlet.

You can post your video of you playing here. I ask that the posters not take the comments as abusive as I ask the the responders/critics be constructive, not cruel.

Edit: I'm told the sentence above needs work. "I ask posters not take comments as abusive, as I ask responders to be constructive instead of cruel."

My own post will have to wait until I return just after New Years, but I commit here and now to post a short vid of my beautiful new qoldtop piezo through my crate acoustic amp.

Edit: If you have chops and you know it, Mike has a thread for you: Show-Us-YOUR-Youtube-Vids Soundcloud Band Webpage Links Etc (http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?2252-Show-Us-YOUR-Youtube-Vids-Soundcloud-Band-Webpage-Links-Etc)

Saving my space, just so that when I post, I can be called number 2 and not get insulted!!

See Post #5 for an embarassing explanation of what you are going to witness. The good news is that its only about 40 seconds.

There are two sentences there. :wink:

I suppose that the second sentence might have been better.

I'll have another stab at it...

"I ask posters not take comments as abusive, as I ask responders to be constructive instead of cruel."

And for our next exercise, as we await more videos, we shall all try to fix that sentence. Your new sentence must be polite and affirmative. It should be encouraging without being overly fawning. It needs to convey that posted video may get what appear to be gratuitously negative comments. It should encourage the posting member to never the less view those comments in the most positive of lights. It should encourage viewing members to comment constructively and supportingly. It should chide viewing members not to be overly critical or cruel.

Hey...thanks a lot...made my day! I don't fool myself with my (lack of) talent...I just find that I have the minimal competence to have a lot of fun playing along to my favorite tunes. At this point in life, my aspirations go no further then to tell my daughter to prepare for me playing at her upcoming wedding next year.

As far as the gain...I use A LOT as you can tell...I have always compared gain/distortion/overdrive to Basement Ceiling Tile. It covers up A LOT of mistakes. :):)

I know gain can be a crutch, but you have nice gear, and you can make it sound really good if you experiment a little. I'd reduce the gain a little, turn the treble down, and pull the bass up a bit. And allow yourself to just turn down the gain as much as you can stand.

The tone of a hive of angry bees isn't flattering.

Here's something more recent. Once again the audio is not so great, skip past the early part and the buzz goes away. Also, I was playing through my 15 watt Egnater Tweaker instead of my usual TOL50 so the tone isn't quite as good.

I think I will wait until New Year's Eve...wait until we all get home....wait until I am the only one left awake....wait until I am in a sufficiently altered state.....wait until the altered state becomes even more sufficient....then we'll give that clean tone a fair shake, post the video..... and I can always claim that I was too "David Crosby'ed" to get it right. :laugh:

If the goal is to embarrass ourselves, OK... I'm game... These were probably done within 3 months of us getting together for the first time, and I hadn't gigged since college (or played much in the intervening years...) That makes it sound like we've improved a bunch, so I should just leave it at that! Actually, not so much, but our set lists have gotten much better as well as our stage presence, lighting, etc. Why bother improving musicianship afteral when you can just focus on looking cooll!! :biggrin:

Loved all the videos in this thread so far !!! Bennett I agree with Les, you know I subscribe to your school of tone but im learning less is more when it comes to gain the sound fattens up when I rolled back the gain.

Ok here is one of many Fk ups thats been recorded. I totally blow the intro !!! but there are some decent fat neck tones at 1:20 and and in the begining of the solo at 2:32 and then at 3:00 you can see the TRICK I worked on for months instead of learning theory because it made me look cool, I wish I went the other way and studied Theory first and worried about learning tricks for later anyway on to the video

That intro is one of those that can snowball on a guy... a few missed notes and all the sudden you can't get back in the groove. Definitely been there myself. But no worries, I think that 3:00 mark redeems you!

Hey everyone....for those of you who have commented on the "excessive gain" in my video...I have a question.....to be serious for a change, that tune's tone was specifically pre-set for the brief tapping sequences. I find that unless I have the amp set for close to maximum gain and the bridge pickup is selected...I can't tap for ****. If I try to reduce the gain, or increase the bass relative to the treble...my ability to tap goes right out the window.

Any suggestions for accomplishing the best of both worlds? Or, is the only solution a 2 channel amp or a boost/OD pedal to kick in for the tapping sequence?

And a related question...are you guys able to get a decent tapping tone without going to "11" on the gain? I do have amps capable of delivering serious gain/overdrive/distortion....and I realize I am using the term "gain" synonymously with the other two terms........but I think you know what I mean.

Best bet IMHO is to up the bass and mids and drop the treble. Lower the gain and throw a decent compression pedal into the mix. Let the compression take care of evening things out. Gain compresses things but the more you add the more waspy and indistinct things sound.

Bennett
I understand exactly where you are coming from That's the reason I asked for your opinion on those videos because we have similar taste in gain I always thought I needed the super gain and compression to play but I've come to realize too much gain is a crutch. And there are many flavors of high gain and I've owned most of the " Modern High Gain Amps" Engl Bogner Mesa Diezel hell I even took an Elmwood and a Two Rock for a test spin. The only thing I got was a thin buzzy tone. Take the Shiva I am playing now you said it had the tone you wanted, well im running it at best 1/2 of the gain the amp can produce but I have the tone you want it an get hotter in the gain department but I don't want or need it. My suggestion to you is take one of your Hot High Gain amps and dial it back to half gain or less and for the tapping parts solos etc I would front end an EP Booster or a BB Preamp both by Xotic and slam the preamp section if you need it. After awhile you will find you won't even want and the tone you've been searching for will probably be found.
Hope this Helps!

Thanks Sergio

Kick in a good fuzz, and you'll have all the tapping sustain and gain you could ever want. Seriously. It'll sound great, especially if you get a little feedback you can control (the key being a good fuzz, not a crappy one).

As to the "excessive gain..." I dunno if that's a good way to describe it.

Because it may have to do with how you set up your amp. Could be just the gain, could be the mid and bass settings, could be too much high end, maybe too much preamp section and not enough amp section...not being there it's hard to know.

As you probably know, when you turn up the front end gain of your amp, you're driving the preamp section. 12AX7s begin to sound brittle and overly crisp after a point, and the master has to go up to drive the amp tubes to balance that out. At the same time, you can tame some of that brittleness with the tone controls.

The PRS amps can sound really rich and creamy at the same time as the gain is up. Just think "rich and creamy" as you're dialing in the gain, tone controls, and master volume!

Dirty Bob
12-23-2012, 09:58 AM
Doc try less gain and different EQ settings for the tapping....different guitars can require totally unique EQ structure even if they have the same pickups so I find it important to tweak an amp for each specific guitar....as a first step try rolling back on the treble a bit and turn bass up some and then tailor the feel with the mid control.


a boost can be used too...but you should be able to tap without insane gain and noise....it's about the EQ structure!

Thanks, guys. That little fingerpicking tune is an original little thing I made up a while back to limber up for practice. It helps get the knots out of both hands. Also, since it visits every string, it is a good head-to-head comparison tune for fingerpicking tone between 2 or more guitars. Depending on how my hands are feeling (I have a bit of arthritis), I can usually burn that little tune down. Yesterday was more of a hamfisted day....

First of all, I was not able to see any of the "screw ups" that sergio mentioned. Haven't the faintest idea what you're referring to. Is that your band, "Champage Brothers"? I guess that would explain your "Champagne Thread".



Usually my verse has a last line instead of random pitter-pat. I am used to some pre-planned scantily clad entertainment on stage but if you can stomach watching again you'll notice an extremely friendly audience member that um, uh, surprised me? by making amorous advances in my immediate direction.:wink:

Yes, that was my band. Like any other greedy self-involved singer/MC I have decided to "go solo". Bigger piece of the pie, easier to maintain, and a whole lot more work! I will be posting some links in the future when the legalities are all worked out, there also happens to be quite a bit of guitar in it!


Very nice! Excellent use of scantily clad hotties. Do you have to pay them or do you just give them free champagne? :cheers:

Pay?!? Well I guess their matching stage ensembles cost a few bucks. :rolleyes:

Here's an excerpt from "The Best Gig Ever", I'm the guy on the left, shameless way too many note playing complete with bum notes in the head, doh!

I get nervous doing this one, the other guitarist is way better than me and he always solos first:

:congrats:
Nice job - you're way ahead of me. If I had to play before even half that many people, I'd lock up - of course that's not too different from the way I play anyway...:rofl:
