Re: Distortion/Overdrive for Tiny Terror

Hey Ironlung, Thanks for your advice, okay i'll maybe give up on that idea then. Perhaps i will try hooking it through the PA system in the practice room next time to see if that can help with a little more volume although the PA systems look a bit dated. You any suggestion what would be a nice ove...

...and will do in the future. The likelihood is that the value of the house will double in real terms over a 25 year mortgage, perhaps triple. That gives you financial security - as long as you've paid the mortgage!

Re: Mortgages are a pain in the ar*e! Way ot

Would be nice to think the "bubble's over" (is that a pun on the greek economy? , the average 'Bubble' is almost certainly in a bit of bother!) but I think it's gonna be a while yet, with some more pain along the way.

Re: Mortgages are a pain in the ar*e! Way ot

You're not going to lose out from prices increasing by hanging on for another year. And you'll get a better rate of course from having a bigger deposit. The base rate isn't going to increase before 2015-6, but mortgage rates appear to be increasing because of constipation in the banking system as th...

Re: Attention: British friends and neighbors. :-)

It has quite different connotations on this island, though hatchets have been buried in the last decade or so I'm happy to say. The Act of Union of 1801 brought Ireland under the direct rule of Britain. During this time Ireland was subject to famine, revolution, more revolution, civil war and indep...

Re: Gigging with Rocker30 (another praising the amp thread)

Totally agree, though metal's not my genre.

Just wish I had the time to be in a band again.....not playing much as it's not the same without the gigs to work towards. Sob. :(

Re: 4 Chord Wonder Songs

OK, more constructively, American Pie is the classic strum-along, and there's lots of Beatles numbers. If the kids don't know the Beatles, then they should :)

Re: 4 Chord Wonder Songs

4-chord wonder songs? Do you mean half the songs on the AC/DC Back in Black album? :lol: Seriously, learn to play A, D, C, and G (while finger-muting the A string) and you can play almost all the songs on Back in Black. You do them an injustice! The title track makes significant use of E as well! D...

Does this mean, "In soviet Russian....." then I get lost. It's a long time since I studied Russian (as evidenced by my mistaking an L for a P!), and I didn't study it to a very high level. And haven't still got a dictionary!
