Matt's music

Since the demise of The Afterparty (UK) my son Matt has still been working on songs with the singer for the singer's new project Misery Kids. They've just released a new video ahead of their mini-tour

Matt's playing bass here.

Andertons offerings today...

So $249 -> £299.
Of course, Bax do it for £281 but they don't have any.

Re: So, I uh, might have done something kind of stupid..

What's the plan? One (which should be enough to isolate one amp from the setup and break the loop) or two? And when you say "peace of mind" are you talking best audio quality?

Learn James Taylor's technique from JT for free.

I stumbled across this, this afternoon. James Taylor's guitar lessons - Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8-5czYJvPM&list=PL4C7B31793C012820&index=8 I love the fact he put a light and camera in the guitar so you can see the finger action from underneath. It may have been done b...

Re: So, I uh, might have done something kind of stupid..

I know what you mean*. I do think G4M would do a bit better if their branding was a bit subtler. "SubZero"? Really? I didn't work out whether G4M are cheaper than Thomann for the Behringer once carriage is included. *I did a post about buying guitar cases a while back and in the end I boug...

Re: So, I uh, might have done something kind of stupid..

Maybe they have evolved the JVM series in the meantime and fixed that channel switching issue, or maybe I was in the wrong in wanting my new amp to be exactly as good as my old amp but with MORE. I have a feeling I noticed that happening on my JTM60 and changed a capacitor. Not to be confused with ...

Re: SHPD: Roland GR55

I transferred the GK3 pickup to Matt's old Squier Strat and took it and the GR55 to band practice last night. Squier_strat_with_GK3.jpg The scratchplate already had extraneous holes so I didn't feel bad about drilling fixing holes through it for the pickup. Squier_Strat_GK3.jpg I had to raise the ne...

Re: Wiring woes - help me Shortscale

I’m having a nightmare with the simplest of circuits - I may just have the pots reversed, but any wiring is a black art to me. Sorry for the terrible picture, but I’ve got the guitar wired up as below and I’m getting sound, but the volume pot doesn’t go all the way off and the tone pot does nothing...

Re: Boss RE-2 Space Echo (and RE-202!)

If makes you feel better, Taschen books overcharged us $1440.00 and caused us to incurred $60.00 in overdraft fees, AND THEN LAUGHED ABOUT IT! They didn’t really laugh, but their paltry gift card might as well been a snicker. Didn't they pay the overdraft fee they caused you to incur? This is the k...
