        Yeah I was pretty impressed too, a brilliant effort to put all those sounds together, admittedly though his right hand technique could use some strengthening (although I'm no one to comment), but as I mentioned I've gone down the rack mounted path previously and as great a live sound you can achieve with digital processors, you can't beat the raw gain you get from a pre-amp valve, so ultimately I'd say my tastes are in line with yours bate, has to be light globes all the way.

        Here's another guitar icon I think deserves the spotlight, whose tone is testament to the good old Gibson - Marshall combination, I was always puzzled how he managed to shred the way he did with that Les Paul hanging half way down to his knees, but then again he has often been viewed as the epitome of guitar coolness. Although this is a more recent example of his playing, he definitely still got it.

            Q: How many guitarists does it take to change a light bulb?
            A: 10. One to change the bulb, 9 to say "I could have done that".

                Well, I was lucky enough to be invited by a friend to see Joe Bonamassa last Tuesday night. This was a lesson in tasteful virtuosity. I really enjoyed this guy's performance.

                  The lead singer in the famous Swedish death metal band "Entombed", LG Petrov (Lars Goran Petrov) is half macedonian and speaks some of the language:

                  Then you have Baltak, the one-man black metal band. He is macedonian and sings a lot of his songs in macedonian:

                            I was researching this amazing guitar simulator plugin for my recordings.
                            Made by Scuffham Amps called S-Gear:
                            S-Gear is a collection of guitar amps, speaker cabinets and effects implemented in software for use with your computer, Windows PC or MAC. The software comes as a Standalone Application and as plug-ins for use with the most popular DAW (digital audio workstation) recording software.

                            I bought it, it is amazing!

                            Anyway, on their main page is an artist called Zabukowski playing a tune called "57 Guns"

                            Zabukowski writes about '57 Guns: This is a very special song to me – it contains many specific musical elements and it was a real challenge & fun to make. I think it is worth to write down a few int


                            This is a very special song to me it contains many specific musical elements and it was a real challenge & fun to make. I think it is worth to write down a few interesting facts about it

                            The song is a combination of my authentic work and some elements/variations of the old Macedonian traditional folk song 'Jovano Jovanke'. A well known adaptation of this traditional song comes from the legendary Macedonian guitar guru Vlatko Stefanovski and his band 'Leb i Sol'. Being a huge fan of Vlatko and his work for as long as I remember, it is no surprise that '57 Guns in many parts feels very inspired & influenced by him. At least I hope so

                            You'll immediately notice the unusual 7/8 time signature, which makes the song not only more demanding to play (just ask my drummer, he really did a great job on this one in the studio), but also more attractive and interesting to listen to.

                            I played all guitars and a bass guitar in my living room ... no kidding !!! How is this possible, some of you may ask? Well, for all guitar work, the excellent Scuffham Amps S-Gear guitar amp simulator plug-in was used. Furthermore, the challenging task was to use only one amp for all duties. As the latest S-Gear v2.4 release contains the brand new Custom '57, it was a logical choice to use it.

                            As you can hear, the amp was pushed to its limits, covering all kind of stuff with the excellence: clean, crunch, overdrive & heavy. Only factory presets were used with some minor tweaking. Definitively, a small amp with a BIG soul, very dynamic & musical ... uh, I like things being musical =

                            Additionally, Electro Harmonix Q-Tron+ envelope filter pedal was used on some minor parts and Ignite Amps TS-999 overdrive plug-in was used with some 'heavy' solos. The song was recorded/mixed/mastered with Cubase 7.5/Nuendo 6.5 using a bunch of plug-ins I won't go further into the details, because it would be beyond the scope of this information.

                            The following guitars were used:
                            - G&L S-500 strat (G&L MFD single coils) for clean/crunch parts
                            

- Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 20th Anniversary Edition (humbuckers) for hard & heavy parts/solos


                            - G&L L-2500 custom shop bass

                            Drums recorded in studio "Garbage", Ljubljana studio technician: Drago Popovič

                            Drummer: Botjan Vajs

                            Mix/Master: me & myself

                            Enjoy listening to this one, I really hope you'll like it

                                What you might think is a "breast stand" is actually a guitar. I was confused for a while myself.
