    Hi all,
    This is my first recording with my new Epi LP Custom Pro...I'm digging it's tone big time :)
    I'm just loving this guitar, although...guess I got carried away with effects..lol I'm playing lead and synth. Thanks for listening !!! Any comments are appreciated too, good or bad. I'm far too old to change anything now ;)

    Thanks, Who :) I'm very glad you liked it :)
    I've actually been through a Gibson Lp Trad and a Gibson LP Standard since I joined this group. My 2012 Cherry Burst Trad didn't last long...one of the neck inlays fell out, so I took it back to GC and bought something else (???) . I found the frets too tall on my 2014 Standard...so tall that my chording was always out of tune (I was pressing way too hard). Guess I got that habit from all the various Fenders I've owned. I've played only Les Paul's from the 60's until 1987 when I swapped to Strats...just because of the weight. In 1993 I quit playing, climbed off the stage, and closed my case for good. I never opened it again until about 7yrs ago.
    Man, it's been really tough getting my hands to work again. Funny thing is, when I started playing again, I never set up of *any* of my old equipment...I just started buying new stuff. My little studio is getting kinda crowded. lol
    But, I'm having a blast trying anyhow. Mostly just jamming with backing tracks, and using various loop stations, plus recording with a DAW. I tried playing with a couple groups...but it always seemed like I was playing with a bunch of old ladies... hahaha.
    I have a goofy album of sorts at SoundCloud...just a bunch of junk, really. Maybe check it out sometime :)
    Again, thanks for the kind words, Who :)

    THANKS!

    I've been keeping this running when I'm at the computer. Very good stuff.


    Makes me want to throw my guitars in the garbage, though. ;)

    My goodness, Who...this certainly makes me feel good !!! Thank you sooo much for the great compliments you've posted.
    Many times recently I've thought of quiting again. People with compliments like yours make me feel like I may *still* have something to offer musically...not to make money or anything, but just to give someone a moment of enjoyment. This is all that makes me continue playing...
