Do I at least get credit on the looper thing. Though I can't tell which brand. Mine's a Boss RC 20 XL.

For some reason I haven't been able to view the videos. They just build on the screen as code. But, one possible answer to your question taylortom -- Compressor. On input it limits the high VUs, digs out the lows. wah lah balance when strumming, no matter the output VU.

Are there any Justin King videos around where he plays an honest to goodness melody? He's visually stunning when I see his videos, but when I close my eyes, he loses me.

I'll agree with a previous recommendation, Andy Mckee is amazing.

I have to agree with you on both counts. Justin needs to learn about melody!

Anyone going to NAMM needs to go check out Andy McKee, as he will be
playing at the Dean Markley booth. Seeing is believing, and he's a nice guy
to boot!!

Justin has melody.. That video where he plays the song, "Punkdified" comes from the Larrivee video where Jean talks about his guitars. Justin plays a couple of great tunes through out the video. Unfortunately, Larrivee's site has been under construction for months, and you cant access the video. If you go to Justin's site, and listen to the clips from his "solo" album, you will hear lots of great songs...with melodies..

Andy kicks butt!!!!!

Default Trace Bundy looping/feeback buster debate

This might clear up the feedback buster debate...

If you watch Trace's DVD, he does use a feedback buster on "Urban Challenge" which is the looping song. I think looping causes greater feedback which is why he only uses it on that song. I don't know the brand of the looper he uses but it is green colored.

(You were right kramster - I guess back in '87 is still your only time you were wrong. What were you wrong about on that terrible tuesday morning? Did it have something to do with quantum physics? horticulture? hockey? )

I just checked it out, and your right! Good call.. We were both right, Kramster. He used it on the video you seen, and not on the song I was watching. I never thought about him using it on a particular song.

that was really cool

As for the feedback buster debate; Most of the times, it seems as if he isnt using one. However in the one looping effect video he is. Just watch it again, and you will see it. Clear black rubber thing that latches out to near the abalone rosette.

I believe he uses a jam man guitar looper. It's the same one that phil keaggy uses and is known for it's accurate reproduction of sound.

It twas either a juxtaposel of biorythmaticism and tortice hair tea that wouldn't acheive assimilation, or I just didn't have a Taylor guitar yet. Thanks for the sudden concern.
