Being the most tech savvy person in our worship band, I decided to get my copy of omnisphere working on my laptop for our keyboard player to use on a Sunday.
I also found that the Hillsong keyboard player has made his Omnisphere patches available as a collection, Which is a huge help and time saver.
But then I started looking into other churches keyboard rigs, they also seem to run all the loops any backing tracks, the click track and synth patch change stuff all by set list.
The mind boggles
Here's the Hillsong guy going through some of his set up
Here's another set up https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=609671...e=2&theater

After 3 years of owning it (a 1983 Burny Flg-90) and swapping pickups to Bare Knuckle Emeralds, it still has never become my go to guitar.
I had a Gretsch Powerjet before this and never bonded with that.
I'm not sure if it's just the 24.75 scale or 24.75 scale and humbuckers that aren't for me.
Either way it's going to find a new home.
So I'll be looking for something new
My first choice would be
But alas my budget will be around €1000
I'm not metal, I'm at most a hard rocker, but probably more a classic rock, Alt Country type so traditional guitars are my go to
Saying that I'd quite like to try the Ibanez FRM 100TR Paul Gilbert's Production Fireman (it might let me know if I like 24.75 scale at all)
I've got a Tele with seriously hot single coils in it (Bare Knuckle Pile drivers) and a Tyler Burning Water 2K
so I've got a High End Super strat but I quite like the Charvel San Dimas.
What are your suggestions?
Chances are I won't be able to try before buy as Ireland is really bad for guitar shops
If you've got this far, thank you for letting me waffle on

I thought I'd share this with you as it's getting quite exiting!
About 2 years ago I started a youtube account. One of my videos started to do quite well and youtube asked my to become a partner and monetise my videos with adsense.
I did this and started to receive a very low income from this. However over the last year I've been posting new videos and have purchased software to do my own animation. I now have over 80 videos and have a daily income of more than £20, and it's rising by about 10% each month.
If you think you can make compelling videos and have time to invest in exploring the system then it's worth having a go.
1. Think of a topic you are passionate about, and something you can make videos on - for example 'how to make cards'
2. Go to google keyword tool and do a word search on 'make cards' or what ever your passion is. This will bring up lots of phrases that contain make cards. Spend alot of time thining about your topic, it needs to be profitable and you don't want to get fed up of it in 6 months.
3. Sort this by Global monthly searches and choose phrases with a medium or low competion. These are phases that are easier to rank high on google with that the 'high competition' ones
4. Open your youtube channel and name it something relevent like 'how to make cards for free' or perhaps something more original!
5. Start to make really good quality videos using the best keyword phrases fron your google keyword search. For example 'how to make pop up cards' 'how to make valentines cards'. Make sure you are not infringing any copyright and you have permission to use the content of videos if you don't own it. For each video make sure you name it with the keyword, use it in the title, and also in the description and the tags box. Write a good amount in the description box.
6. Support your youtube channel with facebook and twitter. Lots of social media and building relationships with people (actually I haven't done this bit yet!!)
7. Like other peoples channels and videos. You need to get lots of subscribers to your chanel. you get this by providing quality content that people want to see
8. Apply to become a youtube partner and to monetise your videos (all info is on youtube under creator and partners) - you will need an adsense account
9. Keep creating great videos and increasing your audience
This is not a get rich quick scheme by any means. But has proved a fun way to earn a part time income for me, and the best bit of it is that while I go to work in a 'proper job' the pennies roll in by the minute 24/7.
Adsense, for those who don't know, is the google program responsible for the annoying adverts on youtube videos! When ever any-one clicks on the advert (and no you can't click on your own) you are paid a small amount per click depending on how much the advertiser is paying for the advert to be there. Some catergories and keywords pay more than others.
You need to be carefull choosing your subject, it needs to be something that you can make lots of videos about and that people will want to watch. It's also helpful to write about a topic or words that advertisers will want to associate with.
Anyway I though I'd put my tuppence in. It's all part of my grand master plan for a very comfortable retirement!

One of the main things I'm trying to get my hands to do naturally without thinking. It's harder than I expected.
My main epiphany was to focus on which of the 3 strings the root of the triad is on for each shape.
It's in an unfriendly key as I'm focusing on them too this year, but that's a good thing!
