Keneally :: EMGs

I think choosing new pickups just got much easier.


Zappa :: Barcelona :: 1988

From the final tour. The full show, kindly uploaded to YouTube by userĀ . Watching this right now, but obviously material like this requires immediate sharing. This is a high budget show: the horn section, the size of the band, the Synclavier in the middle of the stage…reminds me of seeing James Brown and Stevie Wonder, but with the mustard Strat, solos, humour, a conductor’s baton and all the rest. Awesome.

YouTube Picks: John Mayer, Way Huge

A couple of YouTube picks from this week, starting with this amazing look at John Mayer’s guitar rig. There’s some full-frontal Dumble action and 40 (!!) guitars on show, all in kinda-shaky 1080p HD. This is the rig John was touring with when I saw him in London a couple of years ago, and I can vouch for every single one of the considerable quantity of $$$ spent on this setup being absolutely worth it. Great player, great tone.

Sticking with the Way Huge Aqua-Puss theme, I happened across this amazing clip featuring some of the most exotic boutique delays out there. Scientific testing, quality recording and playing – really solid content. I’m very preoccupied with delays after hearing Mike Keneally’s tone on the Bakin’ at the Potato, so this video really hit the spot. The winner, for me, is the Roland SRE-555, but thinking practically I’ve dug the Aqua-Puss for ages now. Then again, the memory man is pretty sweet…this could get expensive.
