  • CLIPS - BBC Gospel Special - My Mesa F-50 live [UK internet users primarily]

    Hi HCAF,

    I haven't posted a clip here for ages, but I hope I've not been completely forgotten! I'm still having fun with my Mesa F-50 - both clean and dirty sounds. I'm lucky enough to play for the BBC's first port of call for all things gospel (he also provided the content for a "Spirituals" special that was aired last week). The link below was from a "Gospel" special that was broadcast on the BBC today.

    It's mostly clean sounds from my F-50 with FX from my G-Major, and either a vintage Dynacomp or an OCD ("Revive Us Again" and "Total Praise") up front. In case you're wondering, I'm not adding any Reverb to my chain - it's all natural. The church was ridiculously live (you can hear it during the interview with Avery Sunshine), and so we had to use an electronic drum kit. I was able to get away with miking my amp, and yet again, I'm thrilled that my Boogie can sound tasty at such low volumes. The audio and most of the video is recorded entirely live, which made for a long and tiring recording session with the 800 or so people in the church.

    Please do check it out on the BBC website - there'll probably be access restrictions e.g. needing to access from UK internet location/IP address. If anyone knows how to work around this, then please let me know, as I'd love a computer friendly version for posterity. In the meantime, the link will be valid for 7 days only, so please let me know what you think!

    Big smiles,

    Andy.

          Thanks Neil,

          FWIW, I sometimes use my office's VPN system to pretend I'm in a country I'm not - useful for watching Lovefilm whilst I'm in Japan,

          Big smiles,

          Andy.

              Currently BBC iPlayer TV programmes are available to play in the UK only, but all BBC iPlayer Radio programmes are available to you. Why?

              because **************** you that's why.

                Just watched it, interesting stuff I have always liked gospel.
                Its weird watching it though, I kind of rejected all religious songs since going to a Christian school as a child.

                Tell me about the guitar you were playing

                          Hi Neil,

                          Thanks for taking the time. Gospel music is often seen as a cultural and stylistic form, and so many can appreciate and enjoy it on that level without getting conflicted. For me, as a gospel musician, there's a genuine smile on my face and if people are intrigued about genuine Christianity, then that's cool - I'm always happy to share. No pressure, but no masquerade either - simply what it is.

                          As for the guitar I was using: it's my Eric Johnson strat - customised with a tortoiseshell pickguard, and some extra shielding to try to keep the single coil noise down. I bought her in Ochanomizu during a trip to Japan a few years back - one of those guitars you can't walk away from... The guitar is not particularly high in the mix, but hopefully the tones shone through enough to bring about some smiles. The guitar is quite the tone monster (and my Mesa was singing thanks to a retube), and I left my PRS in its case (a guitar that I know always records well in a live TV setting) - I'm pleased to have some video capture of it.

                          How are your strats treating you?

                          Big smiles,

                          Andy.

                            Hi Kage,

                            So good to hear from you! I don't have much time to post any more, so I'm a bit of a lurker at HCAF, and I've also not signed up for any of the other popular forums for the same reason.

                            How are you buddy? I miss you too! I'm well! I'm sorry we couldn't meet up the last time I was in NY. I changed role in my company, and don't tend to travel over to the US as much - which I miss. My family has expanded thanks to when my third daughter came along a few years back. All my girls are musicians - multi-instrumentalists even (vox, drums, bass, some classical instruments and of course guitar), and my wife even jumps on the kit from time to time.

                            I lost my Dad a couple months ago, but at 84, he had had a good life, and was blessed with a good death - having the hope of seeing him again one day certainly helped get me through. That's what "gospel" or "good news" is all about of course.

                            Your miracle son must be so big now? Hope all is well with your beautiful family?

                            Big smiles,

                            Andy.

                              Hi JerEvil,

                              You too - thank you for trying. If I find a way of sharing without these restrictions I'll let you know. How is your Boogie treating you? You seem to be enjoying your F-50, and I've really enjoyed the clips you've posted - Great Job!

                              Big smiles,

                              Andy.
