My axes

1998 Landola Jumbo dreadnought with curly maple back and sides (teh SEXXXXXI_HAWT) will post pics when I return to her

2004 Goldtone Banjo, heavier than hell.  An old man in Bryson City NC once told me if a banjo don't weigh 19.3 lbs, it ain't worth shit.  I reckon he's right, hell I don't know.  I like this one.

1982 Gibson Epiphone Mandolin, don't know the model.  pretty good little bug, swapped a half pound of ginseng and 100 bucks for it.

ca 1850 fiddle, no label, very sweet low tones and screaming high.  wish i could play it as good as it sounds.  My good friend Roger Howell (Madison County, NC, look him up!!! Master old-time fiddler and keeper of the tradition in those parts) fixed it up from where it had been broken before, came in an old timey coffin case.  Bow is 150 years old too.

ca 1950 John Juzek fiddle, it's OK.  needs to be fixed up before I can determine if it is worth a damn, those years are hyper variable but this one shows a little promise in the grain of the wood on top.  I swapped a blowed up Ford Bronco to my dad's cousin for that, he got the truck up and running for 30 bucks and I am stuck with one more fiddle (wife loooooved that one).  Ive got four extra bows that go with it, if any of you know anything about fiddle bows PM me and I'll send you some pics.  They could be valuable, hell I don't know.

2003 Crimona stand up bass, pretty good bass for the money.  and even a shitty bass makes it sound that much better anyway.

When the shit hits the fan, what are all you electric ladyland boys going to do for fun?  No power, no noise?  Long Live the Neo Luddite Revolution.

Rich pointed me here, so I guess I'll resurrect this thread...

The guitar on my blog was a $200 Epi SG. For the money, it was one hell of a guitar, but unfortunatly I had to sell it a few months ago when I needed the money for other things (Standard Issue Broke Uni Student).

Now I'm eagerly awaiting my tax returns and pondering a replacement. I'd like to go higher end this time - something that'll last a while and look damn good doing it.

This has caught my eye at the moment:


Could use better pickups from what I've read, but electronics is one of my many hobbies, and I can replace pickups without much trouble.

Hell, I've never even used non-shitty pickups, so its not like I'll be in agony anyway. ;)


(Amusing fact - the one post on my blog about the SG draws in more visitors than anything else - I seem to be popular on google)

Damn, that is hawt...

Maybe DaveScot will get it for you as a bribe present for clearing the way for hisself to get allowed back.  Don't forget he's got those Dell Millions just waiting to do good deeds.  Dave has always struck me as the kind of guy to do random acts of violence kindness.

I can make a five string banjer bray like a donkey.

I can make a fiddle mewl like two monkeys trying to fuck a cat.

I can make a gi-tar sound like Scott Joplin buckdancing on an old washing machine.

I can make my little mandolin bug sound like a god-dam katydid at 87 F.

Cool. I have a Digi 002 and ableton also. Whilst my guitaring is quite disco, my choons are fairly electronic.

Do you like ableton live? I tried out the demo but kept finding myself cross-fading away pops and crackles all the time. These days I just slave the MIDI gear to cubase, the CV gear to the MIDI gear and use the DAW as an expensive tape deck.

It depends on the quality of the sample... some vinyl is brutal.  ???

I thought more about non-zero loop crossings. Say you have a 4-bar loop where the end doesn't match up with the start, resulting in a clear "pop" when looped.

Something like this, ASCII art style.

  *    **      *
*** ****   **
********* **** <-- non-zero loop ending resulting in a pop.
<---- loop ---->

If you chop it clean to the bar / transients you don't get a clean loop when repeating? Is this why you're cross-fading?

Yeah. I do the same thing in cubase, but the effect is far less noticeable, basically making sure that both the start and end of the loop ends at zero, with a slight fadeout at the end and slight fadein at the start.

That was my only gripe with Live though.

No jazz between that? My my, a friend of mine showed me this jazz guitarist, Bill Frisell. Wish I had guitar skills like that, I already fail at Guitar Hero... And it's not even Dragonforce-ish guitar skills, this totally different, amazing.

Agreed about the acid jazz, I'm a huge bebop fan myself. And to keep this a bit more ontopic, there is 1 song in partical from Sonny Rollins (although I should have to look up the title) wich has a great (I think) guitar solo in it.
Edit: it's Without a song although I don't really like this version.
