Mary Had a Little Lamb

Love this song. Particularly the version from "Live at the El MoCambo"
I based this version on that one if anyone's curious.

This is just awesome! You my friend have skills!!! I can't point out anything other than would love to hear a better recording of it! You are energetic and your playing is great. You seamed to be a weeee bit reserved in your vocals but maybe you were concentrating on playing? I can't even TALK when i am playing. Its like my voice shuts off if i pick up a guitar! lol

Keep it up man, looking forward to hearing more!

Anyways, check out our cover of Hungry Eyes - http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...61#post31055061

I should really record from my Line out. But was having mixed results.
Recording "Live" has been much better results.

Love the Ibby ARTIST you play.
I have an older one from 1984.

The level of Overdrive varies greatly depending on which recording you listen to. I agree this is a little more than the recording I based it off of, but not a lot.

too true, but it's all up to the player anyway.
I just think it should be a sliht crunch.
also, it's not a decent sound recording anyway, so the actual overdrive may not be as strong as shown in the clip..

Dude I love your covers!!! You did an awesome job with this one.

SRV Live at the El Mo. is one of my fav albums.

What brand of Strat is that your playing?

That is a 2010 Squier Standard Stratocaster.
Made in Indonesia

It started off as the "Black and Chrome Special Edition" with a humbucker in the bridge. I like that setup enough, great for rocking out, but I wanted the "classic" strat sound. So I ordered a GFS loaded pickguard with the a set of single coils.

I also leveled & dressed the fretboard when I got the guitar. They had shifted on the boat ride from Indonesia to Canada. I set the bridge flat on the body, added 3 extra trem springs and screwed the claw in to add increased tension to make the guitar into a Hardtail (not a fan of trem systems)

Then a quick visit to Fender's website to find the setup procedure for strats, and I have a very nice playing instrument.

Sounds nice too, either through modeled amps in my RP355, or Direct into my Peavey or Marshall

One of my other guitars is a Stock Squier Jaguar. (Vintage modified series)
I use that one for most stuff requiring a Humbucker sound.
I thought highly enough of that guitar to post a review here on U.G.

No-one comments after learning it's a Squier.
I've had this happen on 2-3 boards for various reasons.
LOLOLOLOLOL!!!

I've been very happy with the Squier Custom Vibe 50's Strat I bought last year. I changed out the pickups a few months ago for a set of vintage noiseless to fix my single coli hum, but other than that I love it. On the next few songs I'm working on(a David Gilmour cover and a Robin Trower cover) I'll be using the Squier.

Look forward to your next song DJ.

Nothing wrong with Squires my friend. It sounds like you have it running like a well oiled machine. If you find a guitar that feels right and you get the sound you want, it doesn't matter what brand it is. Plus it looks killer with the black and chrome.
