20:28:06 rokchik : I figure its very smooth, fluid like.
20:28:35 Andrew Cockburn : Ok, in order:
20:28:48 Andrew Cockburn : I loved the look of it, and the sound Pavel got out of it
20:29:12 Andrew Cockburn : Boggi - depends. I guess it is a lot like a standard prestige which is half the price
20:29:22 Andrew Cockburn : but I loved the look of it so much ...
20:29:38 rokchik : it is very sweet looking
20:29:40 Andrew Cockburn : rokchik - still getting used to it, but it has made me play better without a doubt
20:29:43 Boggi : yea I got a prestige and it does not feel so mutch diffrent
20:29:58 Boggi : to play

20:31:21 Andrew Cockburn : I love its clean sound, and it distorts very well - a reall quality instrument
20:31:33 Andrew Cockburn : Yes, rokchik, it would suit your smaller hands for sure
20:31:54 rokchik : That's what I was thinking
20:31:59 Slammer : I was Telling Rokchik...(don't take this the Wrong way Andrew)... that I think with the New Senior Members, they all are gonna get cocky and only talk to eachother... LOL
20:32:19 JVM : lol

20:35:29 Andrew Cockburn : I was being Steve Vai
20:35:39 JVM : still having trouble with the cha eh
20:35:42 JVM : chat*
20:35:56 Andrew Cockburn : I was trying to say Kris came up with the idea and I helped him work out the details - and since there is only one SM, he can talk to himself
20:36:13 JVM : i'll be pretending to be EVH and brian may when i build my axe
20:36:21 rokchik : I'm being Morello in between typing...rocking the wah right now

20:39:07 JVM : and it gets that like wah wah chugga chugga wah wah thing
20:41:17 rokchik : No it's the solo in the middle...using the toggle switch and scratching the strings with your hand..sorta hard to get just right
20:41:26 JVM : ah
20:41:37 rokchik : The opening I can do fine
20:41:40 Andrew Cockburn : SOunds hard ..

20:50:38 Andrew Cockburn : Yes, I have a new feeling of awesomness exuding form my brain
20:50:45 rokchik : If the boss finds out i do your theory lessons at work I might be ina bit of trouble though
20:50:54 rokchik : totally worth it though
20:51:10 Andrew Cockburn : lol - does that mean that next time I cross the border its the rubber glove ????
20:51:10 Slammer : was Kris the only other Mod before?
20:51:42 rokchik : You seem more powerful...the force is stronger in you now....and maybe to the rubber glove LOL

20:53:46 Andrew Cockburn : Like someone to get some iuse out of it
20:54:31 Slammer : I wonder how kris is gonna Do the Chat tommorow??? I think there has got to be at least 100 people or so coming on... and Almost Everyone is gonna want to Ask him a Question, I think his hand might Cramp...
20:54:52 Andrew Cockburn : SHould be fun
20:55:00 Slammer : he should hire someone to type for him
20:55:05 Slammer : LOL
20:55:25 rokchik : that's what I was thinking...but wasn't sure. but should I do intervals and stuff first?
20:56:00 Andrew Cockburn : Circle of 5ths kind of stands on its own, but is relevant to musical notation so might help you with key signatures
20:56:23 Andrew Cockburn : Intervals and stuff is also cool, but doesn;t rely on anything else apart from basic scale knowledge
20:56:59 Slammer : are you THinking of making a Relative Pitch Lesson?
20:57:05 rokchik : cool...i will check it out and let ya know how it goes. I was kinda surprised at how quick I picked up the notation part. I'm not an expert but I can manage now.
20:57:30 Andrew Cockburn : Slammer - yes at some stage.
20:57:41 Slammer : cool

20:58:43 Andrew Cockburn : good question ....
20:58:56 Andrew Cockburn : Its great for some sounds, so probably yes
20:59:04 Slammer : Yes.
20:59:08 Andrew Cockburn : It also stands up pretty well to the Jem in terms of playability
20:59:21 Andrew Cockburn : But now I have a real whammy!
20:59:21 Slammer : I felt like that when I bought my New Guitar
20:59:37 Slammer : sold my other one right away
20:59:42 Slammer : Bought a New AMp
20:59:55 Andrew Cockburn : I NEVER sell my guitars ... I have loved them all over time
21:00:10 rokchik : I like my LP....I like it a lot. But it is definatly not a shred machine. at least for me it's not. LOL
21:00:19 Slammer : well, my other guitar was a Squier.... so It wasn't to sentimental
21:00:32 Andrew Cockburn : Yeah, I felt like that when I tried the LP in a shop, but still mean to get one one day
21:00:51 Andrew Cockburn : Slammer - fair enough
21:00:59 Slammer :
21:01:46 Slammer : ok... Say you won the Lottery and had a Unlimited Spending amount on new guitars which one would you get first?
21:02:12 Andrew Cockburn : starting from nothing ?
21:02:22 Slammer : well with what you already have
21:02:30 Andrew Cockburn : LP next
21:02:33 rokchik : I will never part with my LP. It sounds so amazing for the type of music I like to play. I want a new guitar mostly for the lessons. I figure with a smaller neck Fender I may see better results.
21:02:40 Andrew Cockburn : Then a hollow body semi acoustic
21:02:45 Andrew Cockburn : might get a better strat
21:02:51 Slammer : Nice... A $5000 lp
21:03:08 rokchik : Johnny Cash Addition Martin acoustic
21:03:09 Andrew Cockburn : Thats right Rok - keep it forever, they are sweet guitars
21:03:35 Slammer : I would get one of those Gibson Double Necks that Page played just for fun
21:03:36 Andrew Cockburn : I might need a real AMP at some stage
21:03:47 Slammer : you don
21:03:49 rokchik : Then a Gibson Double neck just to say i have one

21:05:39 rokchik : great little amp...I don't gig so don't know what it is like for that but for what I'm doing it is more than enough. Great sound.
21:05:59 Slammer : Vox AC30 is the Classic
21:06:26 Slammer : Fender Bassman is pretty good
21:06:35 Slammer : for the Tweed Sound
21:07:35 Andrew Cockburn : Damn, I'm exhausted from the emotion I am wringing out of this guitar
21:07:36 rokchik : Sound....when I play clean I guess it's more of a bluesy rock kinda feel... The LP sounds really sharp through it.but I have no problems getting the right tone for Led Zeppelin, Metallica, RATM pretty much anything I play
21:08:08 Andrew Cockburn : Cool
