Meanwhile back in the bar........... Mi Strat pretty sure is a D
Mi Kinkade Rosewood Tele is a U
Not sure about mi black Tele it's packed away with the band stuff. Maybe a C I'll get back to ya. :grin:

Small Stone used to have a 70's one - flogged it on e-bay about 6 years ago. Wish I hadn't now... :? Great pedal.

BTW No fucking chance of me playing those two stretches you posted. :oops:

A couple of aural nightcaps for before I hit mi sack:

This is mi Spaghetti Western thang - Pluck in reverse from top to bottom E and sound the low E last and late - Play at different speeds and build up to a strum. Turn round and have a look for the ghost of Lee Van Cleef.

and ....have always loved this next one - pluck down each note from the low E - perhaps you can tell me what it is some I'm crap at naming chords. Some kind of E7 thing?

At the moment this is the kind of thing I am using

It's quite fun to put the keyboard or a microphone through. I've also managed to get my iPod touch to play through it but I still can't work out how to get the Stylophone though it though :(

My Stylophone's got a headphone socket, would go in no probs :?

Funny, both pedals pictured so far- I've got!

I'm playing Bar chords a lot recentley learning the intros to "this love" & "Cemetery gates" by Pantera. For this love it's hold the top 3 strings down on the 2nd fret, then miss a fret go to the 4th & put your 3rd finger on the a string. Then every beat put your 2nd finger on the top e string do that 3 times, then do the exact same pattern a fret below and after every 2nd beat hit the d. Thats the hardest part to the song to get right to do the bar chord for 3 strings only and not play any other strings.

I normally only play my trusty Gibson gothic explorer which i've had since 2003, but for intros i like to play my Dan Electro guitar as it's such a nice neck and intros sound awesome on it plugged in.

Gibson Explorer - what a fuckin' horrible looking instrument. Anybody who plays one of those strangely shaped guitars with a weird pointy headstock should be beaten to death with their own guitar. In my humble opinion, like.

Can't go wrong with a Tele. Great sound, lovely to play, and fuck can they bounce off a stage without disintegrating like one of those fancy Gibson Les Pauls. :lol:
