I Made it Into Guitar World!

Okay okay, so it's just the "Defenders of the Faith" column, where you simply send in your info + photo, but hell, I'm still pretty excited. It's the closest to fame I'll ever get :hbang:

So, go grab the latest issue and say "Yeah, I know that guy right there"

Re: I Made it Into Guitar World!

That is awesome!!! I always read the Defenders of the Faith section when I pick up Guitar World - that is so cool that you made it in there - congratulations! =) You must be quite the player based on the list of songs you've been playing! Is this from issue with Keith Richards on the cover?

Actually, no, I think the "Chief Keef" issue was last month.

I appreciate the vote of confidence in my playing, but those are just songs I'm WORKING on. Believe me, it's not really an indicator of my skill--just the music I listen to (which is beyond my present ability).

Re: I Made it Into Guitar World!

Ok, I think the latest issue is the one with Trey Anastasio on the cover...I've seen it on the GW site but I don't think I've seen it on the magazine racks here yet. How long ago did you send in your profile to GW? btw - I hope you get that evh5150 amp you want

Re: I Made it Into Guitar World!

on a side note - if you want a 5150 you should try the Kemper...a buddy of mine was at my house last night and we spent a few hours playing his new Kemper powerhead and the 5150 profiles on the Kemper are DEADLY! I couldn't stop playing the 5150 profiles - so fun!

I sent it about a month ago... I think. I probably had a bit of an edge because I'm a little older (and willing to post my age... unlike "N/A" guy there on the right). I think they like to have a good mix of ages, so I'm representin' the OG's.

I actually have an Axe-Fx II. I've never heard the Kemper's profiles, but I imagine they're as good or better than my AFx. However, there's still a part of me that would love to have an actual tube amp blasting through a real 4 x 12. And if I did, that's the one I'd get

I'm older than you and we're not OG's - we're Gen X'ers

I hear ya - that's why even though I want a Kemper really really bad I still wouldn't sell my Carvin Legacy VL 100 =) There is something special about a tube head blasting air through a cab moving your pants legs and thumping through the floorboards. Although the Kemper Powerhead that I tried last night was pretty freakin amazing...and we only had it running through a Blackstar 112 - would sound even more awesome through a nice 4x12 =)

I also checked out your guitar answer guy site - very cool! cute pic of your dog on there too...I've heard greyhounds are sweet companions.

Cheers

Re: I Made it Into Guitar World!

Congrats! Your guitar list is much better than most I see in there. Nita Strauss made it as well with a full page hock in the back. Love seeing Ibanez proudly displayed.

Re: I Made it Into Guitar World!

EFFIN COOL Bobby!!!

How cool is it to have us "Gen X'ers" getting a little mag cred?!?! Although, I'm older still than you guys. I'm still playing through my "New" Gallien-Krueger pre-amp..........Yeah, remember those?? LMAO!! Most (young) people on this forum had NO IDEA G-K ever made guitar amps!!

Re: I Made it Into Guitar World!

Congrats man, I read my issue yesterday and thought that you were hammering down some great and tough songs. It peaked my interest because of all the 7's. Didn't know it was you, very cool man!!!
