Was contacted by the vocalist of an existing Top40 band last night. He wants to form a new band to explore the music he says he prefers. I whipped out a few quick recordings(Drop Dead Legs, Always With Me Always With You, The Party’s over Hopelessly In Love) and Dropbox’d em over. He liked what he heard so he’s sending a tentative set list to me today and we get together Tuesday to see if we’re a good fit.

We shall see...

Drop Dead Legs has always been on my list to fully master.

Shit, I can barely get through the chorus. Especially those triplets...

Good stuff poach. Can't wait to get back to playing music with other people. I've been looking everywhere for a band to join and haven't found much. Playing music with the gf definitely eases the pain, but duo stuff isn't the same as having a host of other sounds to hang onto.

Found a marshall silver jubilee reissue half stack for a really good price yesterday and couldn't pass it up. It sounds amazing.

Oooo, that looks cool! I'm not much of a Marshall fan which probably explains why I've never heard of that model. Is it low wattage and all tube?

It's basically a 50/100 watt jcm model tube amp (depending on the output switch position.) it's got decibels for dayssss. The overdrive channel sounds so good with my les paul that I haven't even tried my pedal board with it. I've just been plugging straight in and it sounds so good

That's the one thing I've always felt Marshall got right. Their EL34s always had that awesome "Marshall Distortion". Save for the Triple Rectifier, I don't feel there's really any other amp line on the market that has such a great sounding factory head distortion sound.

So this one is going to be next...gonna offload a few others to support it. I like the style, color and the compound radius for sure.

That's literally the only one I can find in stock anywhere right now outside of Reverb. I've got my heart set on the Robin Egg Blue, though.

Also, is it just me, or is The Edge pretty much an overrated guitarist that just hides behind multiple delay pedals?

Not a U2 fan at all, but The Edge does own some epic riffs and intros. Often an intro will hit and gets me pumped then the rest of the song just fizzles and ruins it.

I've never been a fan of U2, but can summon an appreciation of what Edge has contributed to their sound.

His approach is often described as "minimalist," which could be one way of saying he doesn't have the chops to be anything but. That may actually be the case, but I'd say his contribution has been to apply whatever skill he does have and his aesthetic sense to create a soundscape or texture. To anyone playing U2 covers, it's not a real demanding task.

To write the U2 material and decide how it should sound is another matter and as with everyone else is the confluence of imagination, technical limitations and other problem solving. In Edge's case, some of the problem solving has been in the use of delays and sustainers.

Agreed 100% that he's created a "sound" that definitely defines what U2 is.

The guy sends me a txt last night asking for a rain check until next tue because his ďdrummer is outĒ. Gee, what a surprise...yet another flakey deal. Ah well, I was looking for a band when I found this one. So, forward.

U2 is most assuredly not my jam, but that doesnít matter in this context. My job in this situation isnít to play what I like. Itís to play what puts the butts in the seats, to play music that sells more beer, makes other people happy, and maybe even gets that sad sack sitting alone at the end of the bar laid.

And even though I donít listen to U2, I have to admit that with a tc electronic ditto a Boss dd7 and waaaay too much reverb, itís kinda fun to play.
