    Alright, let's see if this goes through....

    I must have been in a mood, but this is me playing when I'm bored, in case you're wondering. It was done on a ship, directly into my phone with my Strat.
    Fun stuff. Yes I know the bends get a little flat toward the end! I was feelin it. You know when you get tired of pretty?
    Yeah. That was me.
    Sorry the progression isn't more interesting. :)

    Edit to add.... I just re-named it a few minutes ago.... :laugh2:

    I've been messing around with a Hughes and Kettner Redbox 5. I got it to simply patch my amp into our board when we jam/rehearse. Easier than setting up a mic and quieter as well. Neat little box, easy to record ideas with, now that I have it figured out. Now I gotta figure out what to play, which when it comes to me, never sounds good unless there's a band to drown me out.

    I used this chord progression to mess around while checking clean levels. For those who need to know it all, it's my LP Special into my VOX, into the Redbox. There's a bit of reverb and tremelo added.

    My amps all said "garage band" across the front. If I'm just playing with recording, I don't care what the f is sounds like, if the effects are right. But we just recorded at my friend's house in Montana and everything was done through the mic. (Mostly acoustic, but I think he's still tracking some stuff.... church-y stuff)

    Well, I have both here to record, my Voodoo VRock, which is essentially a modded jcm800. And my axe fx. I'll do a little noodling this weekend and record clips of both, you all can decide which is which. I'll mic my Marshall 4x12 with vintage 30's with an sm57 and I will use an IR of a Marshall 4x12 with vintage 30's mic'ed with an sm57 and you can all decide for yourself which you like better. I'm not telling which is which.

    Not all. I confess, my previous post was the Jet City Custom 5. All thin and on the 2 watt setting.

    But here's an AC30 model with a Tele. It's been up in the modeling section before. But it's something to listen too.

    I mean when was the last time you saw me raid a tube amp thread when someone asks that question.

    "what the best tube amp to buy"

    And Franks says

    "no tube amp"

    I think a good modulation effect will make anybody sound good. This is a simple D-C-G progression through a Joyo Wooden Sound to DOD Chorus to BuGG Daydream.

    I promise I won't be able to tell over my phone, but I bet there's a difference in the room. ;)
