    Most of you probably have seen my crazy shit regarding Rocka Rollas "Celtic Kings" album mixing = to the point I even re-recorded everything just because I found better pickups etc. Compare that to a recording job I do for a band right now: Rocka Rollas - Celtic Kings = remixing like CRAZY and...

  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm beginning to notice that my 'jamming' patches aren't translating well to live band settings, and I'm just getting washed out. Last night I turned the gain down, and added some mids/high end, but now I'm sounding rather bright and I'm not sure that's a good thing. Any tips/rules of thumb/ways...

    I have a four year-old son, and we have recently been playing the Disney animated movie "Frozen" in our house quite a bit. As in, pretty much every day. The thing is, the songs are catchy as hell, and now me, my wife, and my son can't stop from just belting out lines from some of the tunes...

    I Emailed tremol-no: While polite, nonetheless helpful. I don't wanna be a ghetto and use a piece of wood. I hate these trems, have had three, and all three may as well be made of pewter, or play doh for that matter. Google yielded a bunch of blog sites with "use a wood block..." responses. I...
