Can’t Travel, Can’t Go To Concerts, But This Irish Cellist On YouTube Is Bringing The Joy

Like many musicians, Irish cellist Patrick Dexter decided to post performances to YouTube during Irish lockdown. He thought, well, what the heck, now I have time to play music outside for other people. “The open-air recitals, shot outside his picturesque cottage in Mayo on the rural west coast, have been viewed millions of times.” – BBC

The Sound of Revenge by Chamillionaire Turns 15

Bun B, Scarface, Killer Mike, Lil Wayne, Pastor Troy and Krayzie Bone all appeared on The Sound of Revenge. Turn It Up was his first single and it featured another...

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Turns 10 Today

Kanye West is one of the most polarizing figures to ever pick up a mic. We know about his recent struggles with depression and even made a bid to run for President. Kanye is one of the better musicians we’ve had ever as his production has always been great. The College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation are considered classics. Kanye’s first three albums made him a megastar, but 808s & Heartbreak wasn’t for me. Two years later, Kanye released his 5th solo album. My Beautiful Dark Twiste...

How The Houston Symphony Returned To The Stage For Live Performances

To be honest, part of the reason this could even be tried was that the governor of Texas didn’t institute a wide lockdown. That said, the symphony, which resumed weekly live concerts in July, consulted researchers from Rice to figure out where “microparticles” from musicians go within the symphony hall, and to institute better ventilation and filtration systems. (But the concerts have a livestreaming option for audience members who are not persuaded.) – Houston Chronicle

Aimee Mann weds ‘Bachelor No. 2’ and ‘Magnolia’ albums together for Black Friday Record Store Day reissue

Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann says it was just luck that she was working on songs for the album that became “Bachelor No. 2,” while her friend the writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson was writing the screenplay for “Magnolia.” “We were both starting our creative processes at the same time,” Mann says recently from her home in Los Angeles. “And so we were talking about the themes that we were writing about. “I remember him coming to the studio a couple of times while we were recording,” she says. ...

The Met Is Offering Opera Workers Pandemic Paychecks – In Exchange For Big, Lasting Cuts

The offer for a paycheck would be very tempting – but it comes with 30 percent pay cuts post-pandemic, ones that wouldn’t be recovered even if the opera company recovers. “The unions that work with the Met are against making such significant concessions that could affect workers long after the most severe impacts of the pandemic subside, and have accused management of taking advantage of the outbreak in order to get them to agree to cost-cutting measures.” – The New York Times

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Info on Classic JM Pro Electronics

Author: lepappy Posted: Fri Nov 20, 2020 6:52 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 6 Hi again, I thought you were taking the piss to be totally honest. Sorry for blowing a lid and cheers for reaching out, sounds like I did just misunderstand you, can be difficult to gauge tone via text. They are beautiful pickups, I got onto them through ToneJunkie demos, real sweet sound. Would like to replicate that tone as best I can.
