Well, Welcome Back!

30 Jun Well, Welcome Back!

Welcome back y’all! That’s the first thing I (we) want to say.

Do you remember when I used to say, “when I’m silent I’m working on something”? Well well. Been working on so many things at once this year that I’ve been rendered – literally – mute. No more Fil (talking).

But that wasn’t necessarily bad. This happened so many times in the story of us (here and elsewhere) that it’s truly irrelevant. What wasn’t irrelevant was all that happened. And we’ll be talking about it here at length in the next few months, I’m sure. Whether it’s going to be just a bunch of us as the good ole times or a few thousands, what difference does it make after all?

One of the things – just one – cooking was this one site.
Redone, that is. New clothes. Just the dress is different! We’re always the same.
It looks better (now, don’t it?).

Enough said. Please take a look around. Get the feel (pun intended!). Sit down on the couch and look around. Some things need some fixin’ and we’ll fix ’em for ya. After all, it took three months at least to get this done the way you see it now, but it sort of was in preparation for way longer.

See you later.

Welcome back!

Fil & The Team

    Hi – is it no longer possible to post youtube videos here? I can’t find the option to do that!

    Can anybody tell me how to post a video to the member’s forum on this new website. I cannot for the life of me figure it out and I really want to show this cover of Back In Black that I did. You can see the video here: https://youtu.be/rnoEdVejY1M

    Also I’d love a segment of this page dedicated to your guitars where you write about them, your relation to that model and the guitar itself, where and why you bought it and what mods have been done to them. I know it would take a fair amount of time but put up one each month for example, or whatever schedule you’d like, and add one new guitar each time. Would be great reading and fun to see more of your amazing collections of instruments! :) Also if you felt it was a possible thing to do, rate the guitar in playability, looks and things like that. To know which guitars you like the most would be cool.

    Yeah, the site looks damn fresh! But there seems to be a bug when you check the “remember me” when logging on, it claims I dont have cookies enabled (but I do) once its unchecked I log in with no problems. Also when people reply a lot on the same comment the text stacks in an odd way, Im sure you’re on these issues but I thought I’d point ’em out in a friendly way!

    So great to see things evolving and going forward, best regards.

    Excellent improvements.. A list of song titles for the tutorials would be helpful instead of just a month choice.. NICE!!!

    I came across this little snippet of a vid during an 80’s movie called Roadie with MeatLoaf.. See what they are loading out for the setup for a Blondie set.. KIRK

    I figured there was something in the works but this time it actually began to worry me….
    You are an US resident now correct Fil? If so where abouts did you settle? Back in Texas?

    Anyway…. Nice looking makeover. I look foreword to seeing new stuff. And congrats on the Replica success!!

    Hi Fil – congrats!! Cool website.
    The new logo strikes me as the AC/DC flash combined with “Star Wars” font style :-)

    Cheers/

    Can’t wait for the gears to get rolling again! Are you planning on doing more covers, FIl? A lot of your previous covers in the past year have been taken down on youtube for copyright infringement.
