So you think you can tell Heaven from Hell

"remember when you were young
you shone like the sun..."
pink floyd


very sunny morning. had my fare of roti canai for brekkie. a lil' bit of laundry. chop my locks off later then go pick up my watch at the jewellers. saturday mornings can be so nice.

until later on when the books beckon. doom and gloom awaits. no summer sunshine can brighten that kind of darkness.

was trying to get gilmour's elusive tone this morning but to no avail. riki would racun me to get the exact gear, hiwatt head included. never mind. i'm sure with some perseverance and a little imagination, my trusty '54 (ahemM!!) strat along with the gt3 multi-effects (note its non-analogue nature) will recreate the same magic that was first heard at abbey road in 1975. 'shine on you crazy diamond'. that's a lick worth learning. god knows how long it'll take for me to nail it.

i remembered my first foray into effectsdom. the first multieffects unit i ever used was this mid 90s yamaha that belonged to kazman. i bought a dunlop wah, hoping to be able to use it on my first ever gig. until i discovered that i was absolutely useless in wah wah-ing. it stayed in the box until 7 years later.



i went on to a boss me30. gigged with it a few times. messing up sounds along the way. by the time i really knew how to create the dopest sounds ever (to my ears!) from that small blue plastic unit, i found that i wasn't gigging for a while. sod's law. my current boss gt3 was bought on the cheap. in the days when digital amp modelling is improving, i still feel that i haven't discovered its full potential. some of its time-based effects are brilliant. i know that its pretty dated as compared to the line 6's that you see out there, but it serves its purpose very well as far as i'm concerned.

besides, until i start to play very well, that full analogue/boutique pedal set up can wait...
