    Oasis

    A couple of years ago I did a cover of Rock'n'Roll star, which is actually the opening track of the first album. I was not 100% after the original sounds, as I didn't have an ES guitar which I think Noel used on this album. All guitar and bass tracks were played through my Axe FX Standard. I...

    What is the meaning of your user name here?

    20 years ago at a BBQ a high school friend called me "Hoss", because I was looking a bit like the big guy from Bonanza. In 1994 I went online and it became my Internet nick ever since. When "hoss" is taken I add "33" (an old registration number I got on a Usenet newsgroup back in the days). I've...

    Crossover Ethernet Cable?
