Re: Chapman Stick

For me the best chapman stick player by far is the amazing Trey Gunn

Go check his music out is a strange mix of some Pink Floyd and King Crimson with traditional sounding drums on it...

Great overall vibe

It is a unique way of making music

You could try the Fender Super Champ XD I have this amp myself and I found it very versatile... It is loud enough for small gigs but also small enough to crank it up big time for studio use... Jeff Beck uses it http://cachepe.samedaymusic.com/media/quality,85/brand,sameday/superchampxd-part066-02232...

It is like: Which is better single coil or humbucker?: both of them have there own style and feeling and perf...

On stage I go wild and I play great but in the studio it is like I don't know where I'm going with my hands... the result is take after take an after 200 takes I finally feel satisfied... That's the life of a musician it is about 50% creativity but after that...

I'd like to refer to all the other thoughts I gave in earlier topics... As someone said here before: I prefer quality over quantity... tough I must admit... I'm getting horribly impatient at times listening to his older stuff for the 2 * 10 ^ 10 time... (that's a lot) and I'm feeling like "AAARGH I ...
