    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.

  • @airbagtester  Feb 24

    Hey! I sent you an email! \m/ 😁 m/

  • @rainchaser  Feb 21

    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.

  • @rainchaser  Feb 21

    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.

  • @rainchaser  Feb 21

    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.

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 15

    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?

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 13

    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.)

  • @airbagtester  Feb 13

    Re: shattered valves - Ouch! Oh well I guess it could have been worse... you could have lost a perfectly good cup of coffee! 😁

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 12

    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:)

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 12

    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.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 11

    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

  • @metalfoot  Feb 11

    I'm tagging it all with the #explodingteacups tag so keep an eye on that for the rest of the story. Tee hee πŸ˜‰

  • @metalfoot  Feb 11

    Thanks for listening to the Exploding Teacups saga... so far...! I am about halfway through the story. More to come!

  • @bking  Feb 11

    Of all the new ones, you’ve got to hear Pink (modern vintage β€˜57 Gilmour). Once I get around to writing up the spec sheet, I’ll send it your way.

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 10

    Hey there DD πŸ˜€

    You okay mate?

  • @fiddlerblick80 Feb 9

    Hey, I'd love to put words and vocals over one of your groovy guitar/synth songs, if you're interested.
    Let me know!

  • @fonte  Feb 9

    Haha! I'm trying! Away this weekend, but Monday....yes, Monday....

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 9

    Its always a pleasure listening to your music. Thanks for your kind comment on nobdus child and woman by the bay.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 9

    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!

  • @fonte  Feb 8

    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!!

  • @zecoop  Feb 4

    So... Rob and I convinced our dad to actually post his lyrics on FAWM! Since you were there from the start of my adventure, I thought you might want to check him out. πŸ˜€ @srcoops

    @oddbod cacophone (from β€œcacophony”) - what a guitar sounds like in some hands, x1.333 for an 8-string

  • @acousticmaddie  Jan 19

    Hey mate!

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 19

    V much looking forwards to hearing that eight-string getting a workout.


  • @cts  Jan 19

    Love ya, bro! πŸ’ͺ🏽

  • @jibbidy34  Jan 19

    You’re back! Way cool

  • @oddbod  Jan 18

    Hi, good to see you here for another year. No idea what a cacophone is - I feel a bit of googling coming on

  • @boyatheart  Jan 17

    Hi Paul. Hope you're well. Looking forward to your presence around these parts during February!

  • @airbagtester  Jan 17

    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.

  • @cts  Jan 17

    I’ve come to pay homage to the master...good to see you again, sir. 🎸

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2018

    Hello, sir. Good to see you around.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2018

    'Ow do! Allus a rum'n Tyke, aren't we?! πŸ˜‰

    Can't wait to experience some more Dragon magic... Bring it on!

  • @devin  Jan 2018

    Solder Soldier reporting duty, sir. May your plate voltage stay steady, while your output transformer continue to swing both ways 😁

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2018

    Hey, Paul! You know I'm a fan! Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018! Can't wait to hear what you do!
