Re: Traynor Amp - tubes & other questions

You should bias your amp after changing the power tubes. Not something for the average joe. I'd take it to a tech for that.

The pre-amp tubes (the three smaller ones) you can do yourself.

I also recommend Bob over at eurotubes. He's a great guy more than will to help you out.

Good Luck,

Mike

Re: Childhood Memories

Sounds good. The end doesn't sit with me though. Personal opinion - I'd stretch out the lead piano line a little further (ends too quickly) and do something different with the ending (the children still sound the same). You'd think after the experience things would be different and they wouldn't sou...

Re: Collateral Damage

WOW! Not that I'm surprised at all but, WOW! That was awesome. There was such a great build up and then you could literally hear the pain in the guitar. This has got to be one of the best from you and this site. The only issue I have with it is the symbol crash at the end. Nit picking I know but, to...

Re: Just bought my yamaha mg 10/2 analog mixer... what else?

Couple of starter questions.........

Do you have -

A mic for the vocals? (Condenser)
A mic for the acoustic? (Dynamic) - (or do you have an acoustic/electric)
XLR cable(s)?
A cable to get the music from the mixer to the computer? (usually an RCA to 1/8th)
A recording program?

Oh yeah, names..... for a couple anyway......

"Serenity" - Taylor 310CE - Its sound puts me in a tranquil mood.
"Midnight Rain" - Schecter C-1 Classic - Awesome Trans Blue finish.
"Cut-throat" - Epi Spirit - Double cut-away.

My uncle named his cat, A. Yup, just A. I asked him why and he said is was easier when yelling at it. "A, get outta there!".

He named his birds B and E, cause they were always behind bars.

My uncle is strange.........

Re: Dominoes & Demons

Always interesting stuff, Arjen. I like this one better than the other Domino song, but then again, I'm more along the mellow/minor/dismal line anyway. I like the lyrics too. Your vocals are getting better but, you need to work on your english pronunciation. You have improved in that department, tho...

Re: Original song "Mourning Cloak"

Good stuff Shane! You have a good solid foundation to be proud of. You'll probably mess with the lead, trying to get it "perfect", for some time but, I don't think it's too bad as is. I think Gerry is right about the "less is more" comment though. You don't always need to fill the air space, besides...

Let's not take this the wrong way. Gerry has some great information that he is willing to share with us in a structured coherent passage so........ let's make some "lessons" out of them. It doesn't make sense to lose them in the the forum pages, does it? If you really want to blow your mind, go over...
