Tom Bukovac Kemper Profiles by 3rd Power | Leigh Guitars - Phoenix
Hi, 👋 Welcome to The Guitaring Show. Thanks for tuning in!   In this weeks episode, I take a look at the Tom Bukovac Kemper Profiles  by 3rd Power Amplification. These profiles belong to the Hitmakers  Volume One Kemper Profile Pack and they are killer!   From cleanish to pushed amp tones, the Hitmaker Volume One pack is a  collection of over 70 profiles, expertly capturing the sound of three  prized amps belonging to Nashville session man, Tom Bukovac.    Amps used are:    1) 1968 Marshall 100W Super Bass 2) 1968 Silver-face Fender Princeton 110   3) 1990 Matchless C30    If you own a Kemper these profiles are well worth a look.  They have  fast become my go-to profiles not only because they sound and feel  amazing but they require little to no tweaking.  I'm still learning my  way around the Kemper Profiler so having some plug n' play profiles ready to go is good news :)   The guitar I'm using is the fabulous sounding Phoenix by Leigh Guitars,  fitted with McNelly Sparkletrons, and boy do they sparkle!   👇Which profile or amp was your favourite?👇   🔔 Please subscribe to our channel :)   🎟️ Join us on Patreon where we give our fans extra content,  behind-the-scenes access and as many perks as we can dream up!   Including:  ✔️ discounts to our online store ✔️ early access to videos ✔️ exclusive member-only videos     Click here to join https://www.patreon.com/theguitaringshow     Thanks for listening!    Lyndon   #tombukovac #3rdpower #kemperprofiles

Does Pedal Order Matter? | Boosting Your Overdrive Pedal | GigRig Pedal Switcher
Hi, 👋 Welcome to The Guitaring Show. Thanks for tuning in! Does Pedal Order Matter? What about where overdrive pedals are concerned? In our first 'Does It Really Matter?' video I explore some ideas around why I prefer overdrive pedals at the start of my signal chain. Pedal  order is largely a personal decision and there are all sorts of reasons why you may want to put your overdrive pedal after your chorus pedal.  Or your delay pedal in front of your distortion pedal. So what is the best pedal order and does it really matter? Today I look at stacking gain pedals and the effects of using a clean boost to achieve new tones out of your existing drive pedals.  I also explain my thinking behind the pedal order on my old live pedalboard, which now lives in disarray at the studio. Does It Really Matter? Is a new series of videos that we will be creating whenever we find ourselves asking the question, does it really matter! 👇 If you find yourself asking the same thing, please let us know what it is that's bugging you!  Maybe we should cover it in a video? 👇 🔔 Subscribe to our channel to join #theguitaringshow family and tap the bell icon so you never miss an episode! 🎟️ Join us on Patreon where we give our fans extra content, behind-the-scenes access and as many perks as we can dream up!

Justin Yap - Guitarist | How To Be a Better Musician | Blues Philosophy
Hi, 👋 Welcome to The Guitaring Show. Thanks for tuning in! Justin Yap is a Melbourne blues, soul and funk guitarist. He is a founding member of the hard-working band Rambal and he's a super-nice guy. What was meant to be a crash-course in playing the blues turned into something way more compelling! In a crude attempt to get me 'gig ready' for a Blues jam I decided to get Justin into The Guitaring Show HQ to give me some killer tips that I could take to the stage. It was a simple idea. A simple idea wrapped inside my selfish motives to be a better blues guitarist! But Justin saw through my pathetic ruse. I soon learned that the true mark of a great player is not simply the notes played, but the intention to deliver a performance that compels a response from the listener based on the emotions that fuelled each note. Or to put it more simply, to 'be in the moment'. So come with me on this journey as I once again get schooled on how to be a better guitarist and musician! 👇 Is there a piece of performance advice that has helped shape you as a player?👇 🔔 Subscribe to our channel to join #theguitaringshow family and tap the bell so you never miss an episode! 🎟️ Join us on Patreon where we give our fans extra content, behind-the-scenes access and as many perks as we can dream up!

Hi, 👋 Welcome to The Guitaring Show. Thanks for tuning in!   Today we're chatting with Anthony Taylor, country music guitarist and singer.   It was a sweltering day in early February when I met Anthony in  The Guitaring Show car park.  I had been trying to tee up this interview for sometime but the touring musician can be a very elusive breed!  I've known Anthony for quite a few years but I reckon this was the longest we have ever chatted, specifically about his life as a session  and touring musician.   I honestly had a blast and found the discussion super interesting.  We got to chat about his guitar gear, the importance of compression to  his sound, what makes a gig great plus much, much more.  Anthony really is one of the best country pickers going 'round.     Enjoy the video!    👇 Anthony shared his views on what makes a gig special for him.  Do you have a memory of a gig where everything came together?

Welcome and thanks for tuning in to The Guitaring Show!  Please subscribe to our channel!  The audio for this episode was lifted from our YouTube show.   When I was a teenager I had only one pedal...for years.

That was four weeks ago. He still hasn’t said anything. This is the episode that followed the pedal-napping!

It can also be caused by a mutation of the SHANK3  gene.   PMS is sometimes called 22q13 Deletion Syndrome. It’s estimated that 1  percent of all people with autism have Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.  The symptoms of PMS vary and can cause a wide range of medical,  intellectual, and behavioural challenges. The most common characteristics are intellectual disability, delayed or absent speech, low muscle tone,  motor delays, and epilepsy.  There is no cure or treatment specifically for PMS.  For more information about PMS, go to www.pmsf.org or contact the PMS  Foundation at info@pmsf.org.  In Australia, you can visit www.pmsfaustralia.org.au    Thanks for watching.  Please like and subscribe.   Our Patreon Page is now up and running!  Visit Patreon!

A Lost Amp Reborn, The Legend of the Rex Bassking
Welcome! Thanks for tuning in to The Guitaring Show.  This audio is taken from our weekly show on Youtube.  You can watch the episode by clicking here Please subscribe to our channel! After an extended break we're back with Season Two.  Hooray! A Lost Amp Reborn, The Legend of the Rex Bassking In today's episode, we put two Australian made Rex Bassking amplifiers through their paces as we try to recapture the sound of Aussie Rock from the late 60's and 70's.  Both these amps have been rebuilt and redesigned based on the original circuits using the original chassis and they are incredible amps. Clean, detailed and posessing a sound that is unlike any modern amp we've played.  Considering they're virtually a new amp, with new upgraded components they sound like they're from a different era.   'The Bassking is a simple but undeniably classy looking combo. The two channels, Bass and Normal, each have their own dedicated pair of inputs, and controls for volume, bass and treble. A Celestion G12H twelve inch speaker has been fitted as part of the redesign. High quality electrolytic capacitors have been fitted, and matched valves from Electro Harmonix form the heart of the amp’s power and tone. The Bassking is driven by two 12AX7EH valves in the preamp and two EL84EH valves in the power section.'  Read the entire article by Peter Hodgson here - (http://iheartguitarblog.com/2009/08/review-rex-bassking.html) Guitars used today: 1982 Ibanez AS200 1978 Fender Telecaster Custom TMG Scarlett Droff Signature Fender Squire Jaguar Fender Telecaster Zach Butler Custom Les Paul Standard Pedals used today: T.Pedal Vintage Reverb Ulbrick 12AXE  MXR Phase 90  MXR Carbon Copy Boss Tuner Please like and subscribe.

Thanks for tuning in to The Guitaring Show Podcast.  This audio is taken from our show on YouTube which you can watch here. Please subscribe to our  channel!   Chime MK II Part Two | EP Booster | AC Booster | Ibanez TS9   We loved the new Pettyjohn Chime MK II so much that we couldn’t help but  try it out with some common boost pedals.  Our mission, should we  choose to accept it (and we did) was to turn down the onboard boost in the Chime MK II and run a boost pedal into it. We also wanted to hear a  boost post-Chime.  The Chime came up trumps no matter what we threw at  it, including running overdrive before and after the Chime.     This was a fun episode and is the final episode for Season One.  We will be having a short break, returning in a few weeks time for Season Two of The Guitaring Show.   Thanks again for listening.
