    Melodic Blues Solo in Em

    Hey all! Recorded a melodic blues solo in Em last night and thought I should share it with ya. Few words about this one. Went slow and easy on it. Reason is that I am practicing a bit of my control lately. Mainly my pick dynamics, my guitar tone dynamic range and how to learn to use my volume...

    Supremo Trem.

    Sometimes I don't appreciate the special qualities of any given amp until I've finished recording, mixing and am listening back. Then I finally get it! I'm a slow learner. Such has been my experience with the mighty Supro 1964T model (Supremo Trem) as demonstrated here. I started with the...

    FM3 is AMAZING for blues-rock vintage tones

    Hi all! I had FM3 for a while last summer and I created some presets back then and also recorded some noodling around clips of them. I sold the FM3 because I didn't see myself gigging with it and am now waiting for an FM9. All I can say is that is sounded and felt amazing to play and I loved...

    Help dialing in Classic PAF / Les Paul tone

    Hi everyone, I have a great Les Paul with great PAF clones. I need help dialing in that classic PAF nasally/honky tone. I have tried the Jumped Plexi and Friedman's in Fractal. But tone is needing something more as Fractal has so many other options that Marshalls did not have. Below is an...

    Got Harmonica?

    Hi, I'm looking for a Harmonica preset. Earlier today I found an amazing Hammond B3 organ preset that totally rocks - so I thought I would engage the amazing community of rockers here. I did a search on the Axe Exchange for one for a preset for Axe Fx iii, but the well was dry. (See Below)...

    Texas blues a la SRV / Duarte (live video)

    Man we had a good time with this one - Superverb model, with fuzz in the first freakout section, fuz and tubescreamer in the second.
  24. Cainer

    A quick SRV blast

    Going to try to work this tune into my live set soon. Maybe dial the tempo back a touch lol The Dr Z amp is my go to for Stevie-ish tones these days. Just need to find a good way to up the gain without losing the gritty edge. Been experimenting with the amp boost, input gain, and various...

    Strat > Superverb blues (live video)

    Probably my favourite song to play live these days - this was from our CD Release Party. Really digging the Strat tone I'm getting from the AX8! Kicked in the fuzz face when things get hairy about 4 min in.

    Jeff Beck Vibes :)

    Here's one bluesy improvisation I came up today inspired with a bit of a Jeff Beck influence. I am NOT trying to play as Jeff, which is pretty much impossible of course, neither suggesting this is his style :) Just a few Jeff moves, rest is pretty much my own stuff. Anyway, recorded with my Axe...

    Dynamic Blues / rock Tips and tricks.

    I don't know if I am the only one, but to me it seems like most of the axefx videoes (reviews and comparison) and presets out there are for more High Gain/metal sounds. Don't get me wrong, I love axefx for heavy sounds, but it really does so well for low gain crunchy/bluesy sounds for strat or...

    Les Paul blues noodle

    A little sloppity-doo on the playing, but I love the snappy tone, especially without a pick.

    Having fun playing Texas Blues jamming kinda Stevie Ray Vaughan

    It's not precise and not the correct tone especially due to a very heavy noisegate because of lots and lot of noise and hums here at my attic from the powergrid and PC and pickups ;) i left all the small mistakes, noisegate drops and sloppy beginning ;) im not really a texas blues guy as iplay...

    "Hangover" Blues

    Some jazz blues with a hollowbody and Quantum 2.0

    Couple of choruses of a Bory's B-120 through a Shiva! Tasty. Loving the new sound and feel of the firmware. Also very happy to see that the CPU usage is more efficient all around these days. Plenty of processing headroom!
