16:19:19 Slammer: two Humbucker

16:19:28 Slammer: kinda odd for a Fender
16:19:33 Slammer: but it's cool
16:19:35 Owen: yeah
16:19:42 Owen: someone had mutilated mine before I got it
16:20:01 Owen: now its got a pact with satan and his devildriven humbuckers

16:20:46 Owen: looks like an ibby almost
16:20:50 Slammer: yeah
16:20:50 Owen: how much it set you back?
16:21:03 Slammer: well, it goes for $629
16:21:12 Slammer: online
16:21:16 Slammer: and at guitar Shops
16:21:21 Slammer: although
16:21:29 Owen: so about £310 uk then
16:21:45 Slammer: When I bought it there was only one left in the Store... so I only paid $499
16:21:51 Slammer: $500
16:21:57 Slammer: not too bad
16:21:59 Owen: nice
16:22:01 Owen: how's it play?
16:22:25 Slammer: pretty Awesome every thing from Thrash to Jazz
16:22:38 Slammer: can be played on it and sound good
16:22:52 Owen: same with mine
16:22:55 Slammer: it has a Pickup Splitter
16:23:01 Owen: although mine says fender, Im not sure what make it is
16:23:05 Owen: I was told it wasnt at the time
16:23:10 Owen: but it plays good
16:23:13 Owen: low action
16:23:33 Slammer: so.. you can put it the second pickup Postition and it is a Single Coil
16:23:41 Slammer: Versatile
16:23:49 Owen: yeah, I always loved the sound of that feature
16:23:56 Slammer: pretty cool stuff
16:23:56 Owen: just great for experimenting
16:24:03 Owen: I prefer the humbucker sound though
16:24:07 Slammer: Also with my Amp it sounds pretty cool
16:24:11 Owen: its more beefy, less thin on the air
16:24:15 Owen: whats your amp make?
16:24:22 Slammer: Line6
16:24:40 Owen: ah same
16:24:41 Slammer: Spider 3 75
16:24:51 Owen: see this is where I better you
16:24:57 Owen: flextone II
16:25:13 Slammer: Well, I just play in my Room so it's good for me
16:25:20 Slammer: not too loud
16:25:20 Owen: yah its all good
16:25:25 Owen: you get good cleans out the spider
16:25:30 Slammer: but loud enough
16:25:31 Slammer: LOL
16:25:35 Owen: but I played one today in a guitar shop
16:25:40 Owen: and the distortion is terrible
16:25:55 Slammer: well, It depends on what your setup is
16:26:03 Slammer: and how you tweak it
16:26:06 Owen: well the presets are pish
16:26:22 Slammer: did you try the Metallica Preset??
16:26:33 Owen: nah, we tried the slipknot one
16:26:42 Owen: the pinch harmonics were god awful
16:26:44 Slammer: whom the Bells Toll is the Best Distortion on it I think
16:26:55 Slammer: oh yeah I don't like the SLipknot
16:26:58 Slammer: setting
16:27:01 Slammer: never play it
16:27:06 Owen: we tried loads though anyway
16:27:11 Slammer: yeah
16:27:13 Owen: my amp has no presets
16:27:18 Owen: jsut four patch saves xD
16:27:28 Slammer: I haven't found any distortion I like on the Presest
16:27:34 Slammer: only Metallica on
16:27:40 Slammer: is pretty good
16:27:48 Owen: has the spider got the insane channel sound?
16:27:53 Owen: it has hasnt it
16:27:57 Slammer: yeah... two
16:28:06 Slammer: Insane red and green
16:28:10 Owen: I've got one, sounds a beast
16:28:25 Owen: clarity and distortion
16:28:56 Owen: but I've not really tried the spiders extensively
16:29:11 Owen: like all line 6 stuff as you say it probably needs fiddling to get it to sound good
16:29:13 Slammer: yeah not too bad for the Price though
16:29:21 Owen: yeah I'll give them that
16:29:26 Slammer: only $299 for mine
16:29:31 Slammer: is not bad
16:29:43 Owen: not many other amps you can get 70 odd watt of that for
16:29:50 Slammer: yeah
16:29:53 Owen: mine was $400 and its a 60 w

16:36:52 Slammer: yep...
16:37:45 Owen: its mostly technique
16:38:08 Owen: there is a degree of natural voice in there as well
16:38:16 Owen: but with work you can inhance your vocal range
16:38:32 Slammer: cool
16:38:42 Owen: lot of breathing
16:38:47 Owen: like

22:03:54 Slammer: here I am talking to myself
22:04:26 Slammer: well, AIB234 is signed in as of now..... but I don't think he's here
22:05:22 Slammer: *slap*
22:12:03 AIB234: hello
22:12:17 Slammer:
22:12:29 Slammer: been a while
22:12:41 AIB234: hehe
22:12:56 Slammer: this chat was dead
22:13:04 AIB234: played guitar for 9 hours today, my left hand and forearm are on fire
22:13:12 Slammer: LOL
22:13:19 Slammer: you have fun?
22:13:28 AIB234: yeah
22:13:30 Slammer: that's great
22:13:39 Slammer: I remember when I did that
22:13:43 AIB234: started learning petrucci's 'scale fragments'
22:13:48 AIB234: they are great
22:14:10 AIB234: I just started using a metronome all the time now and I don't know why, but I just don't feel the beat anymore for some reason
22:14:19 AIB234: and I have trouble using it so I hope over time it gets ebtter
22:14:22 Slammer: sometimes I wish I could shred.... life would be so much easier
22:14:28 AIB234: hahaha no kidding
22:14:43 Slammer: shredders get more cred
22:14:54 AIB234: Like I took music in school for 5 years so it's not like I am not used to staying in time or anything
22:14:58 AIB234: just something about the metronome
22:15:15 Slammer: more cred than us lowly blues players.....
22:15:21 AIB234: hahaha
22:15:34 Slammer: We're like the outcasts
22:15:50 Slammer: no longer is it cool to play Clapton and Hendrix licks
22:16:00 Slammer: only Gilbert and Vai
22:16:10 AIB234: I can honestly say I've never listened to any of those 4 guitarists
22:16:11 AIB234: LOL
22:16:23 Slammer: or petrucci licks too
22:16:33 AIB234: I probably should, but I find I am very picky about my guitarists to listen to
22:16:42 AIB234: Not like they're bad or anything, I just find a lot of it boring
22:16:58 Slammer: if you can play Petrucci or VAI people respect you
22:17:09 AIB234: Like Michael Angelo or Yngwie, awesome guitarists, but I can't listen to one of their CDs start to finish
22:17:14 AIB234: yeah it's true
22:17:20 AIB234: they are like the bench markers
22:17:29 Slammer: but not us lil blues players
22:17:38 Slammer: we are washed out
22:17:57 Slammer: although John Mayer is starting to bring it back
22:18:06 Slammer: in his new stuff
22:18:31 AIB234: did he just come out with a new CD?
22:18:43 Slammer: well his last one
22:18:49 Slammer: Continum
22:18:53 AIB234: Must be someone of a similar name
22:19:07 AIB234: This girl I was with a couple days ago bought some new CD and that name rung a bell
22:19:13 Slammer: LOL
22:19:25 Slammer: sorry for my ranting... I'm just bummed out
22:19:29 Slammer: a little
22:19:31 AIB234: Nah it's cool man.
22:20:01 AIB234: I can understand that you feel a little under appreciated... you are, heh.
22:20:16 Slammer: My Team lost bad today

22:22:07 Slammer: close to the Border?
22:22:08 AIB234: About an hour and some change away from the Joe Louis Arena
22:22:30 Slammer: oh yeah.
22:22:58 Slammer: well, usually after my team loses bad I get pretty bummed out for a bit
22:23:07 Slammer: LOL
22:23:21 Slammer: but enough about me..

23:14:06 Slammer: then I started getting into Classical/folk fingerpicking music
23:14:19 Slammer: for awhile
23:14:36 Slammer: I was like most teenagers who are into guitar
23:14:44 Slammer: I was obsessed with it

23:15:50 Slammer: cuz it wasn't Miami
23:15:54 Slammer: LOL
23:16:09 Slammer: anyways during that year of 2003
23:16:20 Slammer: I hardly played my guitar at all
23:16:42 Slammer: in fact i probably only played it about 10 times the whole year
23:17:05 Slammer: I had lost my Inperation to play
23:17:14 Slammer: Life was Depressing
23:17:40 Slammer: It was becasue of my Surroundings

23:32:59 Slammer: and
23:33:11 Slammer: He asked me to play something for him
23:33:25 Slammer: I did, and It wasn't that good

23:38:21 Slammer: Bought some new strings
23:38:34 Slammer: and started again
23:39:00 Slammer: I wasn't very good at Elec
