I kept tryna switch from the slide to fingers for that last lick and it jes' wouldn't happen. You can tell I was a little PO'ed about it ;^)Plus the amp was all the way up and that P90 was hummin' like a you-know-what. This is one of the tunes from the upcoming Dr Wu' #5.
Sounds great--I admire anybody who make a slide sound good. I've gotten to the point where I can get a decent slide tone for a moment or two here or there, but it's inconsistent and my intonation still stinks. Practice practice!
Awesome backing track, too.

HA My 'practice spot' is so fulla JUNK I can't get in there with it Dan! I was at Dr Wu' HQ. We are only two tunes into the latest adventure, which will be Volume 5. Bryan and Jim, the songwriting collective that has come to be known as Dr Wu' are to be commended for hiring a buncha out-of-work itinerant tubwhackers and stringbenders during the s-l-o-w part of the year to play on their tunes before all the gigs get cranked back up so we can keep the lights on!

Yes, the 1st quarter of the year is the slow time. People hide from the cold. I mean this weekend in Dallas, the high might not even reach 70 degrees! You'll have to put on a "Texas Parka"...also known as a 'long sleeve shirt'! (ha ha)
The high around here for Saturday is going to be 15 degrees. Now THERE'S a reason to hide from the cold.
(And I'm sure there are some of our Canadian friends here that would chuckle at my '15 degree high' comment.)

Purty nice out there today, John! Almost spring-like. We usually have a week or two of sleet and snow, black ice on the roads in Feb, but so far it's a no-show. I have two gigs in the wilds of Arkansas comin' up the 26th and 27th, hope our good meteorological luck holds.
Buddy W. has got to be the coolest cat on the planet. He plays like he made a deal with Legba, but he seems so down to earth. Most guys that can play like that walk around with a chip on their shoulders and Buddy seems like the kinda dude you want to hangout with. He might even show you a lick or two......without letting you know he can kick your arse with his dang toes on the fretboard.
More gear than the law should allow. Why can't we be satisfied with one guitar, one amp and a few effects!?!
More Ghia Hijinx last weekend in Little Rock. Ghia head thru a Celestion 12 in a little Marshall 15 watter.Hadda use the Marshall the next night, small room and Ghia was too loud! Mouse is playing thru his Marshall 15, we use 'em once in a while when we can't fire 'em up too hot. All the intro stuff was real off the cuff and unrehearsed (like ya can't tell ;^) I guess I'll play Zep covers forever.

You get my vote. First thing that came to my mind was that not only is it hard to sing, sing well, but then sing and play at the same time! Page just played well. You're doin' all three. Enjoyed it Buddy.
GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.
