    Posted By: marcinhawell, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt your image if you let people know you are playing a gig!


    Yeah, you're probably right.

    If you happen to play in the Gdansk area, just let me know :)


    You know any good clubs/bars/pubs there for our kind of music? I'm always looking for new gigs and markets. I would like to go to Poland anyways. I actually used to have a girlfriend from Warszawa. If we ever play there you'll be defenitely on the guest list :-)

    good luck with the gig!


    Thanks! It's gonna be another 2.000 km weekend with 3 gigs, lots of booze, sweat and Rock'n'Roll and very little sleep ;-)

    I guess you where lucky to find like-minded people, and a vocalist - this is always the big trouble, you're one is handling the situation very well.


    Yeah, I think he's a great singer. Probably not you're usual rock shouter, but that's not what I was looking for anyways. Another plus is, that his english skills are excellent and his lyrics are pretty good, too. But I tell you what is almost as much as hard to find as a good singer: a decent bass player!

    Well thank you very much, but I'll be happy to support you by simply acquiring the ticket at the box office ;) And yes, there are plenty clubs to gig round here! You might find yourself one (girlfriend) in our neighbouring capital :)

    Yes, it's almost as if he's a native speaker. His voice sits well in the music, the shit has been pulled together in a fashionable manner! Surprised about the bass player though.

    I actually hoped you could name some of those clubs. ;-) I already have a girlfriend right now. I don't think she would be too pleased if I came home with one more. :-)

    Well, we've got our third in four years now (not counting the guys who just stood in for single gigs or short tours). The thing is to find one that is doing a bit more than just playing straight eighth root notes but then again not overdoing it and even locking in with the drummer. I tend to hit the gas a bit when playing live, so it's good to have a rhythm section that is very tight and a bit laid back to get a nice push and pull thing going sometimes. And the great thing is, that the audiences always start dancing out our gigs, that's not something I see that often a rock gigs.

    Hey, I've watched the Kickstart Your Aggression video a few times and recalled our talk about stage presence in terms of guitar looks and I came to the conclusion that you should get a Gibson. This is not right and should not be in a 'normal' world, but man... you know what... the whole image would benefit from the "Gibson" logo and the Gibson headstock. It would send out a signal if only on the subliminal level but would canvas a 'real deal' professional perception. Feel free to bash my balls in to the middle of next week, but that Gretsch there, even if it was $100 one, does the very job I'm talking about. The form would thus be complete.

    I see where you're coming from and you're defenitely right. And one of these days I'm gonna get me a proper Gibson SG. But then it's gonnabe a real vintage one (since we're talking about what you wanna get across from a visual point) and that, by now, is way outta my budget.

    I think that a vintage SG as opposed to *an* SG would mostly lube your own ego rather than the public's which should not be sensitive to this level of detail. Would be pretty scary if it did ;)

    Pretty good. Attendance wasn't overwhelming but we didn't expect that anyway since it was our first time in Berlin. But the people loved it. Met some interesting folks that will help us arrange some more shows in Germany in the future. Drinking was brutal. :D Went to sleep at 7.30 am and right now I'm having breakfast since we've got to start in about an hour to the next town.

  1.  
    The riffage by itself is AC/DC like, though I'm not sure the boys would ever combine a lick like that with a riff like that. Separately they both sound like AC/DC, not sure about them in combination.

    The drumming is okay, but really isn't AC/DC like though. That doesn't have to be a problem unless you really really want it to totally sound like AC/DC.

    It's just that the drumming doesn't really work with the rhythm part IMHO. The drums sound like they were written for the lick rather than the rhythm part.

    Still, that starting lick isn't bad at all. Not very special maybe, but that's the hard part, haha.
  2.  
    BTW the drumming is just a loop; I can't drum. That's the main problem with writing songs in my case; it's really restricting me ATM.
    I see what you mean about separating the riffs, however when I isolated each of them it sounded empty. I might have to change them a little bit to solve this problem.
    Thank you very much for the advice :)
  3.  
    The chord riff actually sounds pretty good on it's own. I could use each riff for different songs because they'd work separately.
  4.  
    Yeah, exactly.

    Hey DC, can you tell me a bit about those SG's of yours? What year is each model and what is the difference between in terms of sound and playability? What other factors are important?

    No Stratocaster?

    That black SG w. a white pickguard looks like a very fine guitar (right side). Which one is that?

    I don't like Fenders, and Strats particularly, they sound too thin for my taste. The black SG with the white pickguard is the 1998 Standard. It originally had a black pickguard but I changed it and put the spllt diamond on the headstock to look like Angus' 69 SG Custom from the Highway To Hell Tour.

    When I was in the tribute band it was any one of 3 SGs, the 71 with the tremolo, the 97 with the tremolo or the black with white pickguard. These days I'm in an old 1977 reformed punk band and it's the 74 Black Beauty that's #1. The tone and sustain of that guitar are beyond fantastic!

    On stripping the red Gretsch...the Mal from DC/79 got a 64 Firebird that was red and did this to it....

    ...e never regretted it, but he also didn't have the nerve to dig out a 3rd pick up hole!

    Just got a 2013 Gibson SG Les Paul Tribute, and a Marshall 2199 to boot.

    Killer, killer stuff. I have hated every single SG Gibson has put out that I tried since 2010, but this one is a real treat. Love it to bits, and I hope I don't ever part with it. And the Marshall is a fucking beast. Can't believe that their first SS amp is this fucking good.

    Now, for my Committee, some time this year, I intend on putting it through surgery so a tune-o-matic set up can be installed, along with a Supertron from 65.

    I'm having a custom guitar built at the minute to be a bit like Mal's sig. It's a bit of a mish mash of all my favourite guitars really! I'll pop some pictures up when I can!

    Very. It sounds like a tube amp, even at midnight-a-clock-with-neighbors-all-around, granted, you have to work with the gain knobs a bit, but if you plug into the right channel with the bright gain on the high side, you get a very brashy Powerage tone. Mix is a bit more grit - leaning more towards how Mal would sound on that BiB tour.

    Normal input is shit though - muddy, flat, lifeless.

    Gonna buy an SG Original in either Heritage Cherry or Aged Cherry. Help me decide:

    Heritage Cherry:


    Aged Cherry (same as AC/DC-Rocker's guitars above):
  16.  
    I prefer the Heritage Cherry out of those 2!

    I recently got a 98 Fender Jazz Bass, '62 reissue.
