Mmmm I do love my BBE sonic maximizer!! :)I got lucky and picked up a 
almost new 482 for $75 from Craigslist in San Francisco!  These things 
are just awesome!

A man after my own heart...I DO love telecasters in any form, shape or 
style. Just built a custom tele of my own loaded with active EMG's as a 
"nashville" tele with 3rd pickup in the center. Sounds awesome and is 
very versitile.

I just listened to your work. Nice piece Jan. The mix and sound quality 
of the instruments obviously had a good ear and knowledge of what to do 
with that "ear".  The musical content aside from mechanics of the mix / 
linux audio, ardour, etc...reminds me of a couple of folk / light rock / 
contemporary bands out of Australia tears ago...for thos who know...sort 
of a cross between the Seekers and Redgum!  It is a good original piece 
but it feels as though the tempo is a liitle forced or rushed. Almost as 
thought the bass line could have settled on or behind the beat where it 
is leading the beat most of the way.  Not to detract from a very nice 
effort though.  Some of our playing styles are very similar when I 
listen to your guitar work.

Great work. Thanks for sharing. It's NOT easy to do! :)
