Guitar Demos!It’s a few days into the new year and I’m busy writing and recording some great electric guitar demos. A few years ago I bought a Kemper Profiler Amplifier. The Kemper is basically a computer type guitar amp that’s soul purpose is to capture the sounds of real amps and store them so that one can have virtually any amp with them at any time. Many people (including myself, Dave Chamberlin) “profile” their own amp collection and store it in their Kemper. This is great as it allows one to recreate their exact guitar sound at a later date, even if they’ve sold their original amp (which I’ve also done). There are many great commercial resources for these profiles. I’ve invested in a ton of them and enjoy the variety. One of my favorite commercial vendors is a company out of Germany called “Soundside”. I’ve created demos for many of their amps for use on their website. Check out the sound samples below. Keep in mind that I wrote and recorded these demos in under 2 hours each! It’s also a reminder that when you come to DBW that you have an excellent studio guitarist at your disposal;-) Thanks for listening!
Warning, Mad Scientist Stuff!
Those of you who know me know that I like to run musical “experiments”. Well, many times I’ll run actual real experiments. Especially when it comes to my guitar sound. Lately I’ve been doing some subtle mods to my 92’ Les Paul Standard guitar. By swapping out the tone capacitor I can easily alter the sound of my guitar. I documented one such “experiment” below. If you’re still awake after the video give yourself a gold lollipop!
