  1. For pretty obvious reasons, I've been thinking about the old days of the forum, and some of the major moments for me at least. Here's hoisting one up in memory of Angelo Clematide, gone now almost 5 years, hard to believe. Angelo did the music for this art installation: Just hit the "Watch This Video on YouTube" to see this: [video=youtube_share;kez2VLrir0c]https://youtu.be/kez2VLrir0c nat

  2. Your amp has six (6) 12AX7's. Since I don't know the tube layout I suggest you buy one and replace the existing tubes with it one at a time until the problem goes away.

  3. I have one cable that's very microphonic[?]. That is, it passes handling noise -- thumps -- to the amp. Pretty annoying, but you could check for it at the store I suppose. Someone said it could be a side effect of repeated stepping on the cord. This was insulting, of course, so I challenged the speaker to a duel in the parking lot. We went out, he shot me first, and I died. I don't know what happened to the guitar cord.

  4. Sorry, you are completely and utterly incorrect. Check out Jimmy Webb's "Tunesmith" for an example. There are in fact numerous ways to come up with a melody. PS to the OP and oh btw getting back to the actual topic: I have mixed feelings on recommending Webb's book. I would suggest you look it up on Amazon and read the excerpts there and judge for yourself whether it seems like a book worth buying. Warning it can be quite technical and has a lot of info on the music "business" vs just songwriting, so again, mixed bag. Some interesting stuff though.

  5. A good rule of thumb, but nah, not as simple as that. Some people could write 100 songs a day and not get any better. Talent matters too. Wise words there. A key aspect to writing I had to learn and re-learn and keeping reminding myself of was that not everything I write will be great.
