    :shock:

    Y'know, I thought the picture was funny but then, when she turned up at my place last night in that costume...

    ...well, let's just say that that was the longest three hours of my life.

    In a good way. :naughty:

    Blimey...she sure did her job well. I'm still finding it hard to sit down.

    Anyway, as promised (wait...did I actually promise this?:hmm:), here's a quick video showing some of the tonal variations possible. For some reason, I forgot to do the Neck Full and Bridge Split, which sounds like Neck Split and Bridge Full, but a tiny bit warmer with a touch more treble presence. The difference would probably be pretty hard to hear in the vid anyway. Personally, I like the sound of a split coil with a full 'bucker most of all on clean. Of course, once you add distortion or overdrive, all bets are off. Volume drops are also a lot less apparent. :dude:

    I should also add that tone and volume are maxed out for the sake of consistency. Normally, I'd back the tone off a touch for some, such as the split/split sound.

    Since I had the laptop out and hooked up, here's one more quick vid to show the sound with distortion/overdrive and the humbuckers in the middle position with full coils. Again, one take, basic recording equipment and dodgy playing, but I hope the sound comes through somehow anyway...:D

    You're too kind - I keep bending sharp in the second vid. That's because the monitor was off and I couldn't really hear the guitar through the 'phones, so had to guess where to stop. It really bugs me when I listen back, but I put the vid up anyway - masochistic, I guess. Especially after that girl visited the other night. :naughty:

    Heh...that's especially true when I'm playing. Still, I'm happy staying a crappy guitarist as long as my instruments improve...:D

    Yeah how did you manage to get Jimmy Page to play your guitar?:naughty:

    Seriously: fantastic playing man, the dude from Led Zep would not play it better

    You guys are really kind - I guess I'm just too critical of my own playing most of the time. :D

    As for Jimmy Page, the man is a god to me. Other guitarists come and go, but he has the magic right there in his fingers. :bowdown:bowdown:bowdown

    Oh...and FDP, thanks for the fashion advice. Sadly, my ripped t-shirt and old jeans were at the cleaner's, so I had to make do. :D

    Yes...I was having the jeans pressed - those knife-edge creases don't iron themselves. :D

    I know...I would probably improve if I actually took even one guitar lesson, but there's never any time. Perhaps one day...:hmm:

    Just had a couple of fashion accessories like this dude, and you will look like a real rock and roller:
