I've a video of Carl playing.  He sent it to me of him playing along to a demo of ours.  I can hear him playing along when I listen on proper speakers.  Although there is bass on the demo.

Will post later on.

Wow!

    I totally admire this mans tenacity. It would be criminal not to give this guy the chance to play in a band. ANY band.

Oh I know it, and our drummer said the same thing, but way before I did.  I was just like panic stations, will I need to find a new guy etc which I think is a natural reaction.  You can't really see in the video but the stump is just off the neck.  It is actually amazing.  Total kudos to him getting into that kind of shape in a very, very short space of time.  All that effort for a band that doesn't have a singer either!!!  I mean he must really believe in it.

I still struggle with the fact we may never get playing live ever again, but I try to remain positive.  Which is easier to do when you know you have a man this dedicated also within the fold.

It's good to play without a singer for awhile - the tighter you guys (in the rhythm section) are, the easier it is for a singer later

I'm not saying anything you don't already know, but hey...gotta say it sometimes

And hey RG, he's got really good energy going there, it's going to work out (IMHO), these things take time. I will be flabbergasted if you guys "don't" play live again, you are building the elements you need, it's never instant, always takes time to line all the ducks up etc. Make this one better than before, instil all the learning. Keep the faith my friend  :wave: , hey I'm not particularly a metal fan, but I like your stuff  :whoohoo!: .

Since he's been back with us for a few weeks now he's been great.  Some thing he just won't be able to do ever but they're minimal really.  Just been the odd thing where he has went to copy or match the guitar and he just can't make the run as he has a digit less.  In general though he plays great, may be plays even better???   Who knows?

But we've pretty much got the next album covered now material wise.

Just lookin' for a 1980's Rob Halford or David Wayne to fall out of the sky and that will be us sorted!  :lol:  Which probably isn't going to happen any time soon.

Hey RG, that's great news  :thumb-up: .  Having had my index finger compromised for many years now you tend to find a way, though I can't play some open chords the way I used to and I don't even bother trying to play open C any more  :facepalm:

Well hopefully you find a good singer and get things back on track  :headbanger:

Total credit where it's due man, I admire than you continued on despite the injury.

Well fingers crossed someone who fits the band style is out there.  It would be a shame as I feel I am way better at guitar now, despite turning 40 last month. 

And I'm excited as I think I'm moving an MP1 into my live setup now to replace the Rockmaster for a while.  Simply to give the ADA a turn as my main unit as I have never done so before.  Just have to make sure I get the same sounds at home as I do on the big rig.  I'm pretty sure I'll get there.  Boost the MP1 with a treble boost, and have it set for unity gain.  Just tightens it up and adds some chunk to a patch I'm currently loving.

Hey RG, after all that stuff we went through getting the RM voices to switch LoL.  MP-1 sounds like a good move and will hopefully add some inspiration, I assume you'll go for the 3TM?  Biggest difference I found with MP-1 from home levels to live was the opening up of the dynamics and bass (just due to volume) and master vol settings between patches.  But then I generally went in reverse order, set my patches at rehearsal (loud).  But I also had to get my lead boost above another guitar, not an issue for you. 

40 hey, happy birthday and all that  :thumb-up: :banana-jazz-smiley-emoticon: .  Does anyone else in the band sing?  Maybe you could/should give it a shot, it takes some work but, practice makes it better.

Oh man the Rockmaster stuff is still incredibly useful and will be again in the future.  It just so happens the sound I have at the moment has inspired me hence the move.  Also the Rockmaster I think needs a bit of a service.  It's been in use a long time and never had a break, so I think now is a nice time.

You know I have a 3tm but I actually think I prefer the regular MP1 with that treble boost.  Just adds a tightness and a ice chunk.

I always find I'm cutting a lot of the bass on an MP1.  Both live when I have used at practice and also at home.

Current patch is

OD1 4.4 OD2 9.5 bass -4 mid 0 treble 0 presence 8 Master 6.5

Works really well with my Dimarzio Megadrive equipped  (yup the pickup Lesley West used) Squier Stagemaster.

Going to stick a PAF Pro in the neck as there seems to be a shortage of second hand Super Distortion 2's or else they're at crazy prices.

Carl sings, but he sounds more like Prince rather than the sort of voice we need  :lol:
