Hey guys, could use some advice here -
For the past 5 or 6 years I have been playing nothing but acoustic, was in a duo and our gear was pretty simple. So it's been a *long* time since I have even picked up an electric. Well all that changed when I relocated and decided to join a southern rock band
So now I am a bit lost - I know gear has changed a lot since I was a kid and everyone was hauling around stacks of Marshalls, 15 stomp boxes and solid state amps sounded like so many turds.
Anyhoo, just wanted to see if I could pick some brains on what I should keep an eye out for to get the most bang for the buck - at the moment I am using a squire Tele (which is surprisingly decent for the price) and a borrowed fender blues amp. Guitar upgrade(s) are in the works but I need advice on the amp/effect situation....
What should I keep an eye out for to get that classic rock/sSouthern rock sound without breaking the bank? Line 6 amps seem to come up a lot in conversation and I know I have seen quite a few on stage - one thing I am not real sure of is how much power I will need for your basic bar gig -
Any info appreciated!
