  1. Ernie Ball slinky series. I usually split sets and make custom gauges. 10s with heavier bottoms usually. Wound G on the odd occasion. I tend to dig in and play hard, so 9s are never gonna work for me. And I love the spank of EBs on a strat. Yes, they wear out quick, but stay in tune forever. If I was gigging, I'd change strings every show anyway. Don't get me started on coated strings. They sound awful to my ears - overly bright with absolutely no playing response. That's when I was still playing πŸ™„
  2. I'd go soft knee first, to tame the peaks somewhat before hitting the limiter. Seems to work. You can also stack multiple compressors to take a little bit off each time, but you need to be very careful with your dynamics or you'll wreck everything. My preference lately is for opto style peak limiting, but that's just down to the material I've been getting sent tbh.
  3. Bahahahahahaaaaaa Al Kooper, by his own confession, blagged his way into playing Hammond on LaRS. What are you talking about?
  4. ​​​​​​ It's not all about well recorded musically perfect cuts. I can flat out guarantee you that the bluesmen you reference above never made a non sloppy record in their lives. And fwiw, Dylan was well schooled before Hammond Jr found him. Itrw, we'd be having a Spotify war about this
  5. I didn't say you had to enjoy it! Highway 61 revisited. It's rock n roll, but not as we know it, Jim
  6. Listen to the 3 albums I listed earlier in the thread. 12 bar blues is by its nature a derivative idiom, but it had never before been treated the way Dylan treated it on those albums.

  8. I don't know Dave Bromberg. Bob Dylan's art transcends the genre in my and many other people's opinions. His ability to say so much with so few words is what won him the Nobel. When you consider the sheer volume and breadth of his output over his career, with a few stinkers in there for sure , yes, that accolade was well deserved. He synthesised at least a dozen new forms of 12 bar blues that are still popular to this day, and though his is muchsinging voice maligned, there are plenty of rock singers that WISH they could sing with a voice as raw and weighty as he found in himself in his early 20s. I could wax on for a good 10000 words here! Buy I'll let it at that. I know you think he's a shuck, basically. Like EVERYTHING else that we discuss on this forum, I couldn't disagree with you more wholeheartedly
  9. After having been a YOOOGE Kyuss fan in my teenage stoner years, I found s/t really not my thing at first, until I happened to try it out on my MD Walkman in a hotel in Penang on a backpacker trip in 2001 or so. I {censored}ing wore that album out on that trip and QotSA became the soundtrack to my life for a few years after that. It was like ya, we're partying, we're taking drugs, we're {censored}ing ROCKING, and it's the complete opposite of ACDC, because we are {censored}ing INTELLIGENT woke mother{censored}ers. These days? Meh
  10. Bringing it all Back Home Highway 61 Blonde on Blonde I know that a lot of out and out musos hate the guy, but he was literally on fire through this period.
  11. S/t Rated R SftD They hit paydirt with those 3. Seminal albums in an admittedly fairly limited genre, that I don't even listen to anymore πŸ˜‚
  12. The Waves Manny Marroquin reverb is surprisingly useable. ​​​​​​Waves Enigma. I've always liked what it does Massey TD5. Stephen Massey makes good sounding plugins. The TD5 is kinda cool. Not a huge amount of parameters, but you can automate them for special effects without the sound getting glitchy. Sweep the delay time needle for a cool effect. Nothing fancy here
