    Hurricane mode

    Some people may think it is a minor issue but the dominant thinking would be to change the name. If the storm was named Lydian and it was something between a tropical storm and a hurricane, would that make it a mixolydian?

    I put a null filter at the end of all of my presets. I set it for bypass when the preset is called up.

    Updating Firmware Question

    As always Brad’s advice is rock solid. There will be some differences in sound between firmware.

    I never write using an instrument. I hear a melody in my head. Once I have a good grip on the melody, then I teach myself how to play it. Sometimes I use a guitar, sometimes I use a keyboard. It really depends on how I hear the melody. Usually when the melody is forming in my mind, I’ll hear...

    Favorite guitar-amp combination

    I’ll get this started. I like my Suhr Modern into a Matchless for cleans. A Plexi for crunchy rhythm, and the Tucana for leads. That combination gives me the tonal variation to cover pretty much anything. All three of those amps clean up really well backing off the guitar volume. So how about...

    PRS SE Custom

    I have played a few of the SE models. Most were very nice guitars considering the price point. Yes you can spend a lot more and get a PRS, but if you’re on a budget and looking for a great guitar the SE might just fit the bill.

    Anyone going to try the Kemper Stage?

    I am completely satisfied with the tone of my FAS gear. No reason to continue my quest for tone. I am too busy rocking out with my FAS gear. I’m not knocking the Kemper. I am just sayin I am getting such sweet tone that for me, I see no reason to look elsewhere.

    NGD: Suhr Strat

    Build time varies just like FAS. Do your research in advance. Know what you want. There are a lot of options to choose between. Knowing what you want in advance helps when you actually order it. Pickup selection, neck shape, fret size and material, wiring, etc.
