Molly, that Strat sounded wonderful but your Tele felt and played perfectly. I can't remember what the neck pickup sounded like, but the bridge was filthy.
Tin Awesome Random Samick Experience!!

Hey team

If I booked a permanent slot at that venue who might be keen to come in and play?
TG and Gary are keen

Big issue for me is time management as I'm basically 60 hr weeks from daylight savings now.

At the risk of turning this into a classroom, I'm also keen to learn to play with others.

I'd be keen but it's always going to be subject to family stuff and the Mrs being on-call.

Are you using it out front or in a loop? Any tips?

I only have oleg's hippie amp so it's all going in front. I only use it for mild warm reverb that comes close-ish to a builtin spring amp reverb. It's not that great if you're after surf sound. Their attempt at "drip" just comes out more like a slapback. I keep the toggle switch in the middle to avoid the drip. Having the boost is great to kick in a big, almost ambient, reverb.

Have you seen RJ Ronquillo's demos on YT? There were some really useful non-surf settings there, along with some very nice surf demos too.
