2018 sees an eight string cacophone join the line-up of instruments on offer. Expect messiness and half-finished experimental tracks.

Finished "Ode To Coffee" 😁 Hope it's okay - I went ahead and posted it before asking you... my coffee assured me you wouldn't mind.
Hey! I sent you an email! \m/ 😁 m/
That would make sense in that case. It's good to know you can get a sound like that from a split humbucker. I'm not sure if that's the only thing that was attributing to that tone. Since the Schecter has a 25.5 scale length, I wonder if that's another factor to getting that tone as well. The amp didn't seem to attribute much to that tone I don't think, sounded like a solid state circuit to my ears.
I heard a similar situation with a friend of mine about his SSS MIM Strat was getting such a huge sound from it, and all he did was just changed the bridge pickup for a Seymour Duncan Hotrail pickup.
How were you able to get that kind of tone from that guitar? I would imagine it would be impossible to get that kind of tone from that guitar. I'm not trying to shoot you down or anything but I find it hard to believe you getting a strat tone from that type of guitar.
Was it a Telecaster, then? It sure sounded like a single-coil solid body guitar set in either the middle position or the 2 position of a strat.
Thanks for your comments on my songs, "Just Let It Happen" and "Mother of Swords." Sorry it's taken me so long to respond - life, ya know?
That's why I love Ableton - set a region to punch in and out and set it to loop; you can just run through over and over until you get a take you're happy with (and all the others are saved in front of it on the timeline, so you can unfurl them and comp away to your heart's content.)
Re: shattered valves - Ouch! Oh well I guess it could have been worse... you could have lost a perfectly good cup of coffee! 😁
Absolutely. You have seen the bass and 12 havent you? I will put the new on FB when ready but I will let it take a while (starting after fawm so I have it for 50/90) and because its my mindfulness to build them:)
Ah didn't realize. Yeah that's a big guitar. But I might be look into it later. My next project though is to built a new telecaster. I Finally got some suitable wood.
Cool, Is it really that big. My 12-string (Altough I built it myself so neck is suited to me) is not bigger than the 6-string. Would be cool to see a picture
Thanks for listening to the Exploding Teacups saga... so far...! I am about halfway through the story. More to come!
Of all the new ones, you’ve got to hear Pink (modern vintage ‘57 Gilmour). Once I get around to writing up the spec sheet, I’ll send it your way.
Hey there DD 😀
You okay mate?
Hey, I'd love to put words and vocals over one of your groovy guitar/synth songs, if you're interested.
Let me know!
Haha! I'm trying! Away this weekend, but Monday....yes, Monday....
Its always a pleasure listening to your music. Thanks for your kind comment on nobdus child and woman by the bay.
Twiddlings? Heh....well, I would love to twiddle, then. I am not going to attempt that this year, as I just cannot play like that. Maybe next year, but I'm definitely not ever getting into a twiddling challenge with you!
Thanks so much for listening to my first ever FAWM track and the nice comment glad you liked it, means a lot coming from someone with your skills!!
Wondervul FAWMing Mr DD 😊
Truly looking forward to listening to your tracks this year.
Hello! I'm looking forward to what you create this year! You are also always very supportive and I appreciate that.
The Dragon is back! Have a great FAWM! 😀
Glad to be back! Hope you are well, sir!
Hey Paul! Nice to see you here again! 😀
Ahhh, here you are friend! Looking forward to your creations!

Hi Paul. I hope you've been well and continue to stay that way.
I have the greatest of sympathy for your neighbors in the coming weeks. Let's hear some noise.
Thanks for the welcome, so happy to do this again!!
Hey man, hope you're well
It's been two years since the last collab. That's too long. It's time.
Hello!! Looking forward to your 2018 imaginings. 😀
Hi Paul! Welcome back!
V much looking forwards to hearing that eight-string getting a workout.
Love ya, bro! 💪🏽
You’re back! Way cool
Hi, good to see you here for another year. No idea what a cacophone is - I feel a bit of googling coming on
Hi Paul. Hope you're well. Looking forward to your presence around these parts during February!
Hey! Happy FAWMing! An eight stringed cacophone? I've been wanting to try one of those!
My wife got me some Death Wish coffee for Christmas and I thought, "Who's doing the wishing here?" 😁 It's a blend they made for guitarist Zakk Wylde. I'm saving most of it for FAWM for when I need 3 hours of manic productivity followed by a coma.
I’ve come to pay homage to the master...good to see you again, sir. 🎸
Hello, sir. Good to see you around.
'Ow do! Allus a rum'n Tyke, aren't we?! 😉
Can't wait to experience some more Dragon magic... Bring it on!
Solder Soldier reporting duty, sir. May your plate voltage stay steady, while your output transformer continue to swing both ways 😁
Hey, Paul! You know I'm a fan! Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018! Can't wait to hear what you do!
