    Hey Randy, nice kit to build. I've built several Weber kits, one "Frankenamp" from collected parts, and modified old tube organ or PA amps for guitar, so feel free to ask for help. That Weber amp building forum is also a great source of help a...(more)

    Hey Randy, nice work on the playing and production. Good use of all the tools involved I think, the BT sounds like it is also good quality. Mind sharing where you found it? Rick

    My soul still hurts... I post this every year somewhere around this date, I hope you like it. Me and SRV The Blues is a reaction in my soul to music, and Stevie triggered that reaction better than anyone else I have ever heard. (Clapton's "Ha...(more)

    Ok, I've posted versions with a real drummer and much smoother bass player than me. <a href="http://soundclick.com/share?songid=9574148">Live Backing Track</a> And my added rhythm guitar track and lead again: <div style="width:200px;borde...(more)

    Hey Randy, Nice use of octaves and doubles stops. I've uploaded a version with my real drummer and much smoother bass player than me in case you want to grab it also. Rick

    No apologies needed man. I wouldn't say it's butchered, these are not easy changes, we've heard guys like BB and others make em' sound easy, but they are not, you really have to listen and disconnect from some of that 12bar muscle memory. Mine...(more)

    Thanks for checking it out. I'd like to hear what other players come up with for these changes. I used BeatCraft for the drum loop, and Reaper to record and mix. I'm still using the built in soundcard, which is ok for AATs and my concept work...(more)

    Ok, here's my current take on it. Sure is a lot of guitar, maybe I should edit it, add another instrument, and turn it into a real song, but this is what it is now. <div style="width:200px;border:solid #999999 1px;background-image:url(&quot;...(more)

    Very nice as usual. I've also been on FB a bit at the insistence of family, heh. I posted a very simple bass and drum only 8bar AAT. Not very slick, but might be fun to jam with. Rick

    Just the drums and bass, I may post a take later. Not your usual 12 bar, it has a couple of 6-2-5-1 turn-arounds and goes to a kind of bridge starting with the 4 chord a couple times. Not the greatest drum loop, but does make for some interesti...(more)

    I've actually used the groove builder and sequencer here at wholenote as tools for charting out and learning tunes. Not real easy to use, but it works. Rick

    Something that has helped me with timing and phrasing issues is to try and sing or "scat" a part vocally, and when it feels good, try to reproduce it with my guitar. Start simple and grow from there. Rick

    Nice !! My first impression is kinda' Satch meets Morello vibish. I've been pretty much a plug into tube amp and play mode lately, but your take makes me wanna play with some toys and see what kinda noise I can make, heh. Rick

    Ok, here's my first noodle through with clean straty tone. Not too many bloopers. I purposely did not listen to anyone else's yet to avoid chasing other guys licks syndrome, lol. <a href="http://soundclick.com/share?songid=8954125">Rick's Fi...(more)

    I grabbed it, sounds nice. What is the bpm in case I want to extend it or something like that myself? Rick

    Thank you for your kind words. I'm very glad to hear good feedback from ears not so close to the music. Rick

    My 6 Tune "Rico's Gruv Rockin' Blues EP" is up on iTunes and Amazon. Still working on finishing the "full" CD. It's been quite a learning experience for me. I've played on other peoples projects, but this is my first attempt to do my own CD w...(more)
