Re: still goin clean
>> Maybe someday just guitar and edp, who knows?
Since moving to a new town (Evergreen, Co.) and getting involved in the
local music scene (mostly through the extensive open mic circuit in the
Denver area), it's been a necessity to scale things down and travel
light. Been using just an acoustic archtop guitar and << volume pedal
to DD20 to RC20xl >> setup to good effect. One benefit of this
streamlined, lack of outboard effects setup, is that it forces you to
really explore the various "natural" sounds (musical and non musical)
that you can get from just an acoustic guitar. It's a lot more
intimate and seems to draw people in more. Liking it more, now (old
age factor?), than playing "electric". Although, when you strap on the
electric and get that distortion driven, effects laden, wall of sound
thing going ... man that's nice :).
PS: any tips/ links to info on "processed acoustic guitar"? I've seen
players using all sorts of alligator clips and doodads attached to
strings to get different sounds but not clear on the actual process....
