I enjoyed that Piney, thanks.

I don't know much of his music, but I certainly respect him as a player. He comes across as being very humble and likeable and a bit of a guitar geek too!

I like that.

There's a great Youtube video of Mr Big playing Smoke on the Water, where they all play someone else's instrument. PG plays the drums (very well it must be said), ths singer plays guitar, bassist does vocals and the drummer is on bass.

A talented bunch!

Mr. Big

I guess I need to try out the TC Electronic Mojo Mojo OD. (:oD

I'm a fan of Gilbert's playing, but his tone is just okay. However, that's often the case with shred style players. I think it's because these guys have their guitar's action so low and the gain on the amp or pedal is too high.

"I guess I need to try out the TC Electronic Mojo Mojo OD."

5Strats, I know you're being cheeky but FWIW, I tried one a couple of years ago and found it quite under-whelming.

It was the first TC pedal I've played that disappointed. Others like it though. Obviously PG does!

Yeah and I'm satisfied with my current primary OD pedal and have been for at least 6 years.


It's not just good..

...it's good enough.

I'm with Mr. Gilbert on the MojoMojo.

I bought one when they dropped the price ($50 new). I had been shopping for an OD to bring to jams and such when I didn't want to bring my pedal board.
So I bought one and I'm REALLY happy with it!

Interestingly enough, watching Paul Gilbert's demo of that pedal was one of the reasons I had been looking at it. I've never been much into his overall sound, myself, but I found his demo informative and helpful.
Separate Bass and Treble controls was a big plus. The $50 price tag made it a no-brainer.

p.s. That 3-string guitar trick is interesting.

I've always been a huge fan of Gilbert and Sheehan.

Gilbert has shed the guitar-hero trappings and attitude, and simply plays the hell out of the guitar. He's also a wonderful instructor and ambassador of all things guitar.

He seems like a totally normal guy with totally abnormal skills.
