A unique axe that I will never forget..

In guitars, we know that tremolo systems were invented to make the notes ascend or descend (depending on the type of Tremolo system). But if you think that Herman Li was great at making video game kind of sounds, you should check this video out.

Impressive? :D

Boss OD-3

So far, I haven't done anything productive for the holidays. Except that I've been mindlessly tweaking my guitar amp to find my own signature tones. Drop tuned (Drop: C, Eb and D) on my guitar and putting my creativity into the EQ adjustment (treble, mid and bass) and the amount of gain. But I guess, true overdrive tones can be heard through 20-30 watts of power, depending on how many watts I'm putting into, since I'm using a 30 watt valvestate amp. But of course, 'a spade is a spade'. There's a reason why players use analogue effect pedals, is because of the desired tone they look for. It all involves player's preferences. I just discovered the Boss OD-3 pedal at Yamaha and in my opinion, it really brings out the big low end side of it and it has clarity towards the highs, it is way better than the Boss DS-1 (Sounds thin to me). All I do, is just take my time and,"*tweak...tweak...tweak...* Oooo, I think I just discovered my signature tone :D". It's very therapeutic if you know how to find a good tone for yourself. Hehehehe..

Other than that, I've been keeping myself busy by eating more. Yes, eating. It's as unproductive as it may be, but skinny people like me need to put on more weight -_-. That's just basically it, besides that..I just go ahead and 'Lepak' and jam with my buddies.
