Bad Belinda

Description
The guitar on this is a Yamaha copy of a Gibson SG. I really like the crunchy quality of the bridge pickup. The bass part I recorded using the Yamaha and then applied the Vocal Transformer in GB to tune it down an octave and again I like the loose quality of the sound.

Guitar sounding good. Your trick to get the bass track worked out pretty well.

Reggie! The Vocal Transformer does give the guitar a unique sound an octave down.

Long
time, my friend! Yes, the bridge pickup in the Yamaha is really raw and feels ol'school to me.

Woke me up!
Hey Donald, early morning here in Australia and this really woke me up good and proper. Great guitar tone and playing. I will be up for the rest of the day. I have been playing with GB Vocal Transformer as well. It's a blast. You can use the Pitch slider as well. Regards, Peter.

Thanks
for listening from the other hemisphere, Peter! I find the Pitch slider gives a different result although you can combine both for an interesting effect (VT -6 and Pitch -6.) Try it out and see what you think.

Old School Tone
I definitely dig this one. A very cool hard rock/bluesy/ZZ topish vibe for sure. That Yamaha sure does sound warm and tastey, like a Bluesssberry Muffin hot out the oven. Now is this a direct line in or are you mic'n the amp? If so, what amp? Anyways, awesome playing. Downloaded!

Thanks for checking it out, Matt!
The Yamaha is plugged into the Line6 UX1 guitar interface which goes USB into my iMac then into the Gearbox Amp modeling software which is accessed in GB. You really can get a lot to fine tones out of the Gearbox.

fat
and sick. The idea of using the vocasl transformer to octave down the bass is genius, gotta try that one! Used to have a SG myeslf back in the hayday, Loved that axe. light with amazing tone, but if you even looked at the whammy bar, it was out of tune...LOL. Nice looose jammy on this one as you aptly put it. nasty and roadhousey. Dug.

Belinda. Mighty fine tone on both the gits. Though that drum track locked everything in nicely. Great playing. Authentic roadhouse vibe

don't normally associate Yamaha with good tone, but this one has got the crunch. Thanks, Bob!

On the road . . .
This would make a totally great road trip song. I can just see the wheels rollin'. I love how so much stuff I hear on MJ--this included--really, really inspires me to learn guitar. Awesome stuff at 1:34--I like the "spiraling down" quality of the chord progression there.
