  1. Transcribing some James Bond theme songs to Jazzmaster & classical guitar. (Moonraker, Thunderball, From Russia With Love, You Only Live Twice). Basically soft Bossa Nova style w/ Jazzmaster as melodic instrument in lower register. String pad in background - of course.
  2. A tad younger than 82. I do own a Jazzmaster though w/ 65 style pick-ups - if that’s a clue. They are a thing again from what I understand.
  3. I love the Bakersfield songs & records. But listening to a Telecaster bridge pickup today is like driving an ice-pick into my brain.
  4. You got better recordings than I did - back in the day w/ that thing. That’s a good recording. I remember buying my MMT8 new and trying to reload sequences in it w/ a tape cassette. That was before Alesis came out w/ a disk drive for the machines. 64k barely gave you enough data for a song - let alone a full live set. The HR-16 was pretty loaded w/ useful loops though.
  5. You made good use of it. Alas, I have no recordings I made w/ mine. Ha! I was wrong. I found one. You May recognize a stock loop I embellished upon. BOSSA PARISIENNE
  6. Alesis HR-16 I used it side-by-side w/ its sibling the MMT 8 sequencer. What fun it was back in the day. Kawai K-1 &US- made Ovation acoustic-electric guitar. There was nothing I couldn’t do.
  7. IDunno - really fine guitar playing. Nothing from me for awhile unless I post one of my oldies. Sorry.
  8. I have no idea why. I just know every time I listen to stuff like this, it’s easy to for me to get really bored 99% of Records from the Beatles to the present. Lieber and Stoller hammer another nail into the coffin of modern music.
  9. I really look forward to trying one of these out.
  10. Great article. I'm glad to hear about this. I've been using MIDI since before the GM1 standard was established. It rarely gets the credit it's due. I saw in the late 80's that MIDI could be the most liberating technology in the history of music. IMO, it has lived up to the hype. So I'm always happy to hear musicians give MIDI the short shrift.
  11. I don't find this design visually appealing. I am seriously looking at the offset 2014 model though. Online retailers are blowing them out at $799 to $899 - with case. That is a huge bargain for a new US-made Gibson.
  12. Every I bought a lower-priced T last month. Everybody from my local repair guy to the vendor thought the T was the better choice in my case. I wanted to get the HP model. But I took their advice. I think in the Faded, Studio and Tribute line, the upgrade to HP is worth the money. In the higher-end LP's - I would stick w/T.
  13. I'll be watching the prices of US-made Ovations, new & used. I've been wanting one.
