The Metro Session: 1971 Gibson SG Standard

29 Sep The Metro Session: 1971 Gibson SG Standard

Audio from video camera.

I hadn’t realized I left a bunch of Italian speaking in it. What I am saying? I am saying, “despite these ones are reputed more vulgar by the collectors, these are instead great guitars”.

    Complimenti, Fil, la chitarra è fantastica. Anche se credo che tu riusciresti suonare Angus anche una scopa con sei elastici.
    Ciao

    Congratulations, Phil, the guitar is fantastic. Notwithstanding I believe that you could play Angus even with a broom with six elastic bands attached.
    Cheers

    Hi Fil!
    Excellent tone on the staccato of Shoot To Thrill!! I can see on you face that you were totally digging it. I can’t wait to try it on my own Metro 50 watter (solid state rectifier). If only I wasn’t such a lousy guitar player.
    Thanks for making this web site. You’ve been fueling my determination to improve my guitar playing for years.
    Keep the attitude and the ‘guitar face’ but fix that rhythm on the Back In Black riff!! 😉

      Thank you! Guitar playing is less frightening than we think. It’s physical. Weird huh? Well, at least, SOME rock and roll is physical. Please keep this in mind. Move. Dance. Rotate, TWIST. It really is physical.

    Hey Fil great tone yet again. PERFECT feedback at the start of Shoot to Thrill. Love it.

    I won’t say too much more. But I saw what you wrote on the amp forum the other day. Very, very excited !

      Lol, whoops you’ve already put your new amps up.

      And here’s me trying to be all secretive about it in case it was meant to be a surprise for all of us…

      Still, I really cannot wait for those JMP’s.

        The weird thing was that you mentioned this while the amp was literally, “buzzing at the door”. Would you believe it mate?

    … e invece è una chitarra splendida. In effetti sono tutte splendide ed è il tocco del chitarrista che fa la differenza.

        Sure, it makes sense to speak Italian if you live in Italy, apart from this, continues to speak in English that I understand, I speak Spanish. Italian do not understand it at all hehe, a big greeting Fil 😉

    It looks like with this one you are working harder to really make that thing scream. LOVE the tone of the 71 though.

    Having listened to this guitar with the Metro and the Marshall several times over, I’d have to say I really like both and prefer each one for different songs. What a dilemma :) lol
    The feedback from rolling on the volume at the start of Shoot to Thrill (2.40) and the bent G at the close really give me shivers.
