Telecaster and tone.

i bought one good priced black japanese tele from my friend. it's custom and has rosewood fret board. plays really nice. wonderful except for bridge pick up which sounds horrible. not so horrible with my marshall artist 3203 distortion but yeah still it can be improved in a big way. it's never edgy enough and when i use both at the same time it sounds like it cancels each other out.

i've never owned a tele before but i always wanted them. i've just sold all my guitars i had for heavier rock stuff and i can concentrating on aquiring this my own tone i've been wanting. it's still like illiusion, or nothing solid but i'm having much fun just trying things out.

you can create all kinds of tone but having clean(or crunch to be accurate) tone handled is my current biggest challenge. it's everything you really have to pay attention to. from jack, guitars, amps, cabs, to effects... many options and many different ways of expressing.

i wish everyone really thought about tone at least a little more when they play.
recent jeff buckley birthday gig really made me say that...
way too many people just plays music... or just does it for fun "only" and i hope you find a little more depth in what you enjoy...

one liners from

These are all one liners i've rescued from
all things actually happen while recording session seems
some people really are stupid.

"i have got to have more SMPTE in my headphones"

"Do you have 1/2" ProTools?"

"Gimme more ADVERB on vocals!!!"

"It's sounding good but can you harmonize the snare, please?"

"the bad thing is that here in switzerland is no high class porn producer, only this amateur with ugly chicks thing" yeah high class what?

wanted ad: "For sale: Acoustic guitar, recently tuned."

"I'm better than I sound."

" i know what im doing, i used to work at TWEETER"

a guitar player asks "Am i good enough to wear cowboy boots?"

"Once a drummer tried to tell me how intense 13/6 time was" yeah i can't even imagine....

rapper dude looks at pop filter and.. "Wow, this MIC gotta be expensive"

almost too clever....
"Can you hook up the vocal backwards through the de-esser to put some "sss" back into the vocal?"

"Yo, we're makin you rich today homie"

and just tons and tons of funny shit like ...
"ROCKER: It sounds like the toms are exploding!
ENGINEER: Actually, that's just your drummer hitting our mics constantly."

I just remembered another one by a bassist I like to call "The Butcher" Think Mel Gibson in 'Conspiracy Theory' on steroids.

The Butcher: D F+ G+, B, F, C, E, F, D+ (+ are sharps)

Me: What key are you in???

The Butcher: I'm a bassist, we don't use keys.

Me: My bad...

Hammered Dulcimer and Autoharp

i just bought kick ass dulcimer and autoharp samples just for $11.xx from

it's generally 8.99 a piece so total is supposed to be 17.80

you get $5 coupon for downloading his FREE samples....
and when i get to the cart i just noticed that he was offering 1.xx discount if you buy 2 products... and happenes to be they were the ones that i wanted... so yeah nice deal. for 2 instruments, 3-4 presets each, and total is about 250 MB.
and it's actually sounding really good...

other than that, there were a couple of more interesting instrument such as toy instrument, bamboo xylophone, etc so go check his web site. you will find something a little bit different.
