Empty beer is what got us here. But drink on.
And dinner plans set with a girl from class I started talking to. She's 19 though so I can't take her to any bars, so nice restaurant it is. But dang this is one cute future accountant.
Quoted for new thread.
Thanks that was my next task.
Brothers don't shake hands....
Brothers gotta HUG!...
Can't wait to hear the clips. Nick makes some awesome gear, and Corey makes awesome clips of that gear.
Is the joyo, OCD and osd similar circuits?
Ok, all the bass demo clips from the tourbox are online. Uploading the guitar ones now too.
Just staking my presence in the new thread. I try to post at least once in each thread to keep my limited doom cred up.
Dude, clips sound great.
Gave them all a quick listen. Great work.
I can get some similar drive/fuzz tones from my mostly harmless that are similar to the DA120. Now I just really wish I was messing with that right now.
Had another great FM practice. Wrote a new song with a very challenging bass line that needs some quick fingers and endurance. Hopefully we can keep this pace up and be show ready by the end of Feb. We've gotten a few show offers that we've had to turn down because we only have one complete song.
Now to open Corey's box...
Alright guys I need some advice. Way not doom, but y'all don't suck so here goes...
Been at the new job for just over a month reading meters.
I'm getting better at what I do but I'm having some bad experiences. Specifically with dogs.
I don't know if I should stick it out or not.
Its decent money (not exciting but is all extra towards buying land, the wife is bringing the bacon) and has good benefits. I've had dangerous jobs before; done electrical line work, climbed cell towers, worked at prisons and chemical plants, hell I was rebuilding a military airport on 9/11. I keep telling myself I'm not a puusy, but these dogs are driving me nuts. I got attacked 4 times today, twice was groups of 2 & 3 dogs.
I don't have to go in any yards with dogs, but all 4 attacks today the dogs left their yards. I haven't been bitten, and so far I've scared all the groups off. I just don't know my luck will hold.
The part that really bothers me is my opinion of dogs is suffering in general.
I love animals and prior to this job never has a bad experience.
I'm just not sure its worth it.
Should I quit or man up and stop bitchin'?
Dog attacks all day with limited means to defend myself is my personal nightmare. So I think that sums up my opinion.
You got a degree of any kind?
And note to self, need a bacon bringing wife...
Carry some raw steaks around with you to create diversion. Or a bag of treats maybe?
I hear you have to bite the dogs ear to assert your dominance.
Yup, stay at home dad, teach the little DOOMsters how to riff.
Thanks Ron, I can't believe I turned around that many demos in that length of time. Still managed to sneak in some time with my wife and do some housework too, somehow. I barely had time to get a Modded HM2 preorder into Nick before the deadline, I was so busy uploading these lol.
I already own the Wizard and the Cthulhu, which are both killer. I preordered the Volt Thrower and the HM2 though, because they bring some awesome overdrive/distortion tones. The DA120 sounds pretty awesome on guitar. It's not the most bass friendly pedal of the bunch, kind of limited in voicing and flexibility for that, but every single pedal in the box had enough solid low end that it could handle bass with zero probablem and sound good.
The Volt Thrower is hands down the best bass friendly RAT tone I've played. That's something I've been hugely picky about too.
I made some playlists for you guys, for the sake of convenience.

Sounds like a good deal to me.
We should find twins haha
