Though kind of old at this point, my main sound machine is a VG-8ex. I can model the type of guitar (electronics and body characteristics) ,effects,amp,mic and speaker cab per patch. The pafs, Ricks, Strats, lipsticks,Filtertrons, and virtual programmable pickups are very good. I've got my own very weird pickup set that stretches the angle all the way from the bridge up to on the fretboard. Strange stringy hollow sound, like a Hendrixy droid sound. I can just program an entire instrument and signal chain. Two amps at once in parallel. Or a hex amp with an amp per string. I love it.
A friend has the VG8 and 88 as well. He can do things... :shock:

There is no escape.

Hang in Christopher. That is why the call it practicing. And we are the most complex machine in the known universe. Every one of us a custom build. Like any profession, they run the gambit.

Miss my old primary care as my primary care at the VA is about indifferent (really shows up in contrast to all the other care givers I have been cared for by). My labs as of 1/16 are within manufacture specs except for my good cholesterol which is not problematic so as long as issues are under control I won't sweat it.
All the meds I take were prescribed by my former PC and pulmonologist (confirmed by the VA's).

G'day all.

Sleet and freezing rain to top a light dusting of snow. Southwind is prevailing so will all turn to cold rain before it turns back to snow after dark.

Think this strange in a good way. Middle aged Japanese guys rocking like the mean it.

And something from the Sami simply cause had not finished this post when it came on.
Find her voice intoxicating.

Was talking to Em last night; discovered she is as into Mongol Metal as I.

Just goes to show that those of that look at the world through something other than nationalist blinders will find wonder and common ground.

Hope Ma smiles on us all.

Very cool. Amazing that stuff I would largely dismiss in English takes on such a mesmerizing quality when presented in a language I do not even recognize.

so true . sometimes I like the song better when I don't know ( or understand ) the lyrical content . I don't always want a story or a meaning

but sometimes it's just interesting to hear what the human voice can do

To all the freaks in this thread that dig the far out sounds from lands yonder, you will be most pleased with the musical offerings being put out by this label: Guruguru Brain.

https://gurugurubrain.bandcamp.com/

Free streaming on Bandcamp.
Best Asian underground!!

Thanks for the suggestion . I already listen to Scattered Purgatory on occasion , when I need background noise to concentrate . I'll check some of those other bands out

Evening earthlings...:wave:
I've been doing people's heads in all week getting them to learn and remember all the related primary chords in all twelve keys then playing say a 1-6-4-5 chord sequence five ways using the CAGED system...:laugh2:
Just waiting for Anastasia to get her DNA results back as Matthew bought her the kit for Christmas.
This should prove interesting as her mother's side are from Armenia and Georgia in the Caucasus mountains and her father's side from over in the Urals.
Wow little Sebastian and Leia will certainly have a good old mix of cultures in their history.
In the meantime I'll leave you with a little number we've had specially choreographed for Frank and Sid to join Fezz in around his kitchen table..
