    Allan Holdsworth. RIP. One of a Kind.

    I met him in the 80's when he opened for the Dixie Dregs at a joint called My Father's Place on Long Island. I was sitting at the bar and after he finished his set (which was mind-bending, of course) he came over to order a beer and sat down right next to me. It was my privilege to have been...

    Question on guitar used to create the Factory Presets

    I am 99.9% sure Cliff stated he used a Strat for the clean presets and a PRS (humbuckers) for the lead presets. However, that was a long time ago and that may have changed with the more recent factory banks.

    Power amp modelling on or off when using real Cab & Direct FOH cab sims?

    I just got one yesterday, so I've only spent two days with it. Its a killer little device and I run it to a 1x12 cab. Normal position, power amp sims ON. The OP apparently prefers them off, but to me it's way better with them on. It's plenty loud and sounds great. I've been running FRFR since...

    Your favorite Amp/Cabs?

    Bludo Lead is now the only amp I use for lead. EVM-L 4x12 or 1x12 cab for now. I've got the cleans down to a short list of AC-15, AC-30, both with Tom's Mix cabinet, Vibrato Lux and Deluxe with their new UR factory cabs, and the Bludo clean. Bludo clean sounds WAY better in Firmware 18.04.

    The first real guitar music I ever heard was when I accidentally came across the 16 minute live version of "Spoonful" from Wheels of Fire on the radio (yes, on the radio) when I was 10 or so. My little classically-trained mind was instantly blown and I knew right then I had to learn to play...
