In 2010, it was at a barbecue party, when one of the guests told me to go to an another one in they neighborhood. Believe it, the guy was attending the 2 parties. It was a young guys party, with an improvised band. So my friend said to me: "play something you know". So, I got that strat and began the Money for Nothing riff. That was awesome. It was 10 years since the last time I had played electric guitar. I made the lead, while another guy sung the lead vocals. I played bass too, for Pet Semetary, and played some other songs I donīt remember. But that day was delightful, and inspired me for my "go-back" attempt. I tried to make a band with some of the party guys. The problem was the bass player and the drummer quit for their own projects. We had only 1 practice. However, this time I will keep on collecting instruments and practicing my lead guitar, since Iīm still hoping Iīm getting some bands to play with. Although my vocals are better than my guitar playing, I prefer taking chances with the latter. Always.
I know Iīm bit older than most UG members, but I feel that rock music drastically got worse since the mid 90īs. Sounds like old timerīs babble, but there is nothing from the 2000īs - 2010īs that equals the quality and innovation of the 60īs, 70īs, 80īs and even 90īs. Fancy if some youngsters enlight me?
It took 5 months to sell my Behringer UD-100 Ultra Distortion. It was not a bad pedal, but since I got the Turbo Distortion, it made no sense to keep it. One thing I learned is Behringerīs drives and distortions are good to begin with, but the modulation and possibly the delay effects are awful. I bought an UF-100 Utra Flanger to match the UD-100, but the pedal was very bad. It was hissy and fuzzied the tone with those swoosh and swirling settings. It stayed with me just a couple of days until I got back to the shop and replaced it with an Onerr HF-1 Hydrogen Flanger, which is pretty decent. Does somebody know any great guitar player who uses Behringer pedals?
