More Modern Classic Playing (Audio Only, LONG file)

12 Feb More Modern Classic Playing (Audio Only, LONG file)

So, fever’s gone.

I’m still down here in Dubai, will stay some more here until the snowing and freezing cold in home Rome, IT, ceases.

Prior to leaving, I had recorded a few files to study the sound of both the Modern and Classic Wizards. These were not supposed to be posted, but I thought you may be interested.

It is somehow boring, these are mere exercises of mine to warm up, be flowing etc.

This is the Modern Classic with a Les Paul, a newer one, one that I really love.

Settings on the amp are my usual settings, presence 0, Bass 5, mids 3-4, treble 5, gain 6 and master 8.

There is some post processing done to this, might get annoying in the end – sorry – but I wanted to play with this. It’s a stereo delay.

Wizard Modern Classic Les Paul

 

The second file is played with a 1969 SG, way below standard tuning. At some point, my 1965/1958 Les Paul Conversion “The Husk” gets in. Same settings, different guitars, to let you understand how the playing and different guitars act to the amp.

Wizard Modern Classic 1969 SG and The Husk

 

Edit please note: both takes were played with my beloved Schaffer-Vega Diversity.

    An original G12-65 from 80`is on the way to me and i also got this speaker ET65 today.
    I will make some tests to compare these both.

    I’d like to share one interesting Pro Tools LE and Eleven Rack setting. Tha base is old “Solodallas BIB” Eleven Rack (patch) setting, but i’ve edited severally (because my guitar, pickup etc.).

    I used some inserts:
    – EQ 37 Band
    – Compressor/Lomiter
    and – suprise: BF 76 Peek Limiter.

    Enjoy!!!

    Very pleasant to the ears. I could almost visualize where the solos were going next but at the same time it is not something I could reproduce myself.

    Reminds me of clips where you see Angus and/or Malcom just fiddling around. It makes you want to close your eyes and hope it never ends.

    This is great Fil, nice to just hear some shredding.

    I do detect a slight Halen sort of thing like others have said,

    Fucking love that fat juicy tone on the first clip…..so good.

    2nd one is great as well, I could listen to this stuff all day.

                  He’s also a busy dude, lol.

                      Well, bonlives said that he had a johnny and a johnnysg and he’d approved both of them. He then said, that they had the same IP address,so he deleted Johnny. (I assume it’s cause you tried to join and it didn’t work,so you did again,lol)

                      Anyways, he gave me this password for you:

                      Username: johnnysg
                      Password: plugmein

                      He also said,make SURE you change it right after you log in (for obvious reasons,lol.I know it,and anyone reading this will know it….)

                      Hope this helps man,if not just let me know and I’ll see what else we can do.

      i’ve had my main guitars tuned down half a step for a couple weeks now just to try something different, and thats all it really is… just different. i wouldn’t say there’s many advantages or disadvantages for that matter, its just a different voicing, a different way to hear things is how i look at it 🙂

        I have one SG at standard tuning, one at -1 step down, and one 1/2 step down…

        When I pick up each guitar, they all have ‘the tone’ to them, as enjoy going between them all. Nice amps help 🙂

            I switched to 1/2 step down tuning about 5 months ago and I can never go back to standard unless I have to and personally, the difference from standard and 1/2 step is that it gives the guitar a lot more blues of a sound.

      FOr variation but mostly when practising, for EASE on my tendons. I still bend and vibrate continuously as you can hear, and for minutes. If I did it with regular tension, I’d be knocked off. Must be very careful, I really am rough on my hand.

        Posted at 17:56h, 13 February

        Interesting point indeed; I usually leave the guitar in whatever tuning I left for the previous song I’ve been practicing, but using lower tuning for practicing makes sense.
        Fil, curious, do you have some set practice routine, or do you sort of doodle along?
        Cheers!

            me too, but sometimes I feel like my practice could be more structured. The main things I always do are a couple of finger strength/dexterity exercises, simple scales (pentatonic!), and chord transitions. I don’t have a good exercise for bends/vibratos, other than doodling.

              i feel the same, time though is such a barrier :(, i get to check the site mainly during work hours n play guitar when gf is at work or watching her soaps lol

              my practising consits of a list of backing tracks which i play in order usaly starts with back in black right to for thoese about to rock bit like a live performance realy 😛 45mins to 1hr every few days is my frequency

                Yeah, time is the problem; I rarely use backing tracks, actually most of the time I practice unplugged. It’s the only way I found to practice about an hour total a day (and it’s not continuous).

    I love the tone with the SG and the wizard when you played back in black it sounded like you where playing at a stadium 🙂 and it sounds like angus live tone from the previous years (around ballbreaker maybe) I bought a DVD of them playing live in madrid spain its called no bull and you can easily see on stage angus is using the wizard modern classic live. is this with the G12-65s?

    I like those both. Not boring at all. I like the delay/reverb. In the right setting it gives a feeling of distance and fullness. To me these sound a little VanHalen’ish as well. The Wizards seem to e pretty versatile.

    Glad you’re over the Flu 🙂 It’s been running through my house to. Of course we can’t all just get it and be done. It’s got to pick us off 1 by 1 so it lasts longer. 🙁

    Nice. But it sounds more dirty than you usually do. And you added pretty much reverb too?
