ASAT Blues


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Pure indulgence really. Got a new G&L ASAT telecaster (not blue), whacked on a backing track (from a Marty Swartz CD) and just played over the top.

One take, first time I played the guitar (after setting it up)...

No theme, just jamming.

Hope it isn't too boring.

Regards,

Peter.

Playin' with lots of feel Peter! Nothing like a new instrument to get those juices flowing. Nice clean fender tone. Are you using the two pickups together or the bass pick up? Just a touch of verb would be nice but that's a subjective thing. Some nice bluesy licks happening! Enjoy your new toy!

Both pickups....
Hi Stan. Thanks for having a listen. Both pickups with the tone down a bit. Straight from the guitar into my Presonus Audiobox with no effects at all. Just getting to know the sound of my new toy. Regards, Peter.

Ooh, ooh!
Sweet, sweet playing Peter. Not the least bit boring. If your new toy inspires you like this, we should be hearing some fine indulgences over the next little while. Thank you muchly; I downloaded.

ASAT tone...
Glad it came across OK, Philip. I do like the tone of the ASAT. Fishing was great. Plenty of fish (and just a few red wines and beers...) Talk soon, Peter.

I love new guitar day! There's nothing like that new guitar smell. Although I've become to much of cheapskate lately. Great tone and some soulful riffing!

Whew!
I'm so glad I was just scrolling up and down the pages just now or I definitely would have missed this one amidst today's avalanche. Man Peter, you got that instrument just singing it's heart out here. And I think when a musician is so skilled that he can so easily share what's going through him directly to his instrument like this, it is incredible and is one thing that truly amazes me still about music. Boring my eye! This is outstanding my friend--not one nit to pick with this, just enjoying it all the way. Thanks again Peter--hope all is well and should I not cross paths with you here, wishing you and yours a very bright and happy Christmas. Take care now! Michael

Typical generosity...
Once again your comments are amazingly generous and very much appreciated, Michael. Glad you enjoyed my jam session. Thanks for your kind seasons greetings. I wish you and those close to you a great holiday season, too. Take care, Peter.

Nicely done Peter, can't beat a good jam and this is that!
PeterB7858 said 2111 days ago (December 12th, 2011)
Slow blues...
Thanks, Neil. I'm glad this is that :-) I like jamming to slow blues. Gives me time to get my fingers somewhere near the right frets. Regards, Peter.

This is ripe for some vox too. Nicely done my friend! That's a blue guitar even if it's not blue right? :-)

A darker shade of blue...
Hi Freddy. I must admit I did think it would probably work up into a pretty neat blues song. Perhaps I might try for it. Blue but not blue, yep, that's right! Take care, Peter.

Love UR new Tele!
Far from boring. Great lyrical lead ideas. B.B. King would pat you on the back for this one. Curious as to how you recorded this. Live or individually?

Ozone 5...
Hi Ken. Glad you enjoyed my indulgent jam. Recorded in one take just over the top of a backing track I have. I used Ozone 5 to give it the punch that makes it sound more like a live recording... Regards, Peter.

melifluous
smooth as silk! What a fantastic tone you get out of this guitar. Not indulgent at all! Or rather, indulgent in a good way. Touch of the Robin Trowers in there. Would sound great with some distortion on it too. Cool.

Haven't been disappointed
Thanks SB. I wanted the tele to complement the great humbucker tone I get out of my semi-hollow bodied Ibanez and I haven't been disappointed. Happy with an RT nod :-) Take care, Peter.

I love the shuffle feel to this, something about that triplet sort of gait that is irresistable. Great playing as well, not overplayed and very defined. Lovely.

Happy new guitar day
Nothing like it to inspire tonefull tasty playing. Would love to hear this with a touch of overdrive to add the growl that is lurking in there. Grat playing either way.

Pure tone try out...
Thanks, Pete. Was looking to just get the pure tone of the single coils with this jam but have used it with my pedals since and the results have been great. Thanks for having an listen and commenting. Regards, Peter.

Boring? Pffft! I drank this one in. And you say this was all in one take? That's stunning. (I'd have dropped the thing just after pressing record on take one and knocked a chip out of the new guitar for starters!) Some nice little licks in there, hammer ons, double stops and all sorts to keep you interested. And that's a beautiful sounding tele - out of interest, what colour is it anyway? =) Great track.

Made in....
Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for dropping by for a listen, Stephen. Glad it managed to keep your interest for a while. The new ASAT is a tribute series G&L made in Indonesia that I got for a ridiculously low price from a wholesaler in Sydney. It has the exact same pickups, etc. as the USA made version and the build quality is just fine. The swamp body ash is walnut stained. I will change the tuners to better versions (Gotoh, probably) and am toying with the idea of sanding it back and possibly colouring the body with a bold automotive style colour (that Fender light green is nice). The sound I can get out of it for what I paid is incredible. I really like playing it. Take care, Peter.
