Description
Purchased a used 09 Gibson SG Standard. I met this guy at Guitar Center who told me to find him playing the advertised guitar on one of their amps, it was tuned to drop D, played nice, Sold! I brought it home and checked it out on a couple of my amps and noticed how hot the pickups are, especially the neck pickup. The neck is also nice, all kinds of room up high to allow for fumbling around.

After some minor adjustments to the guitar the thought was to go ahead and post something. I came up with the progression playing in the tuning I bought the guitar with. Predictable but maybe not so much at the break. I tried to sing the song like I envisioned it though it just doesn't sound that way. I wanted to record more guitar parts but, later, due to my inability to handle texting while driving a hammer, I manage to temporarily disable my left middle finger, so I kept it like it is.

Sensory Processing Disorder, something I'm not an expert at but emotionally learning about more every day.

Lyrics
SPD

When I wake up I'll have to find a place where my mind can stray

Leave me be for now all that life can bring will crash upon my stage

Just let me scream
Can't find the words to tell you how I feel
Keep away from me
It won't come clear 'cause every day I live is different

How to deal with stress has overwhelmed me I keep reaching

I need to scream
Can't find the words to tell you how I feel
Steer away from me
All I fear from every day I live is difference

Some days are good others aren't so swell then those like hell

Will you take the time to help me through this phase with my headaches

Just let me scream
Can't find the words to tell you how I feel
Keep away from me
Don't want you near 'cause every day I live is difference

It's different...

Thanks Vic
I love it, another beast that plays and sounds so much different than the Strat and Tele. Maybe closer to the Les Paul but has a neck that goes on forever.

I'm glad you liked this. A little harder sounding than what I've been doing. My son has been diagnosed with SPD. It has been a learning experience.

shoot the pinky bird
I like what you did with the vocals and how they came out, a bit of a departure with a nice FEEL.
Doesn't sound like the rest of your hand is missing the middle finger too much, LOL.

I failed to mention that the guitar parts were laid down before my finger was incapacitated. It would be awesome to be able to play and have that extra finger available just in case. I wanted to try some other ideas or replace some of the parts, just left it like it was. I'm glad to liked the vocals, wasn't real sure about the approach.

Texas Jam
I never realized that Texas had such talented Musicians until I joined MacJams. This is a mellower groove than I expected it has a familiarity with Blues...."It's different"....yeah! My Man 'Feel'

JazzIs, cool

Not real fast TV
So yeah... got some blues, maybe metal ballad? Thanks for the compliment. I would have to say that TV is a talent himself.

Sounding great, John. Powerful lyrics. I especially like the harmonies in the chorus. For a man one finger short, you did okay :-) Take care, Peter.

Actually I had the guitar parts all ready down, just wasn't finished so I kept what I had and posted. Thanks Peter for the listen.

A different sound from you - shows versatility. I love SG's, it had that edge that I miss in a Les Paul. Vox are well done - Very cool!

Wasn't too sure about the sound
The guitar plays real nice but the hot pickups took me off guard. I think I'll get use to it, just won't stray too far from the strat or tele. Thanks for taking the time to listen Chris!

middle finger
Fab playing without a middle finger. (Plus, what do you do when jerky drivers cut in front of you!? Without a middle finger to help the situation?)

Love hearing you play. And I dig the understated singing style. As opposed to screaming it, you restrain yourself as the lyrics suggest. Thanks for sharing this. I dig it.

I'm not a screamer, maybe when using that middle finger. I had a hard enough time trying to change up the vocals like I did. I appreciate you listening and your input as well, means a lot.

Always dug an SG. Nothing says rock and roll like the devilish shape of that Gibson classic. And in your talented hands..........awesome!

Thank you for the listen! Does have a dark sound to it, maybe I should listen to some Frank Marino for inspiration.

Many years ago I played an early 70's SG for a couple of years and loved it ... always been a fender guy and didn't like gibsons because of the weight ... too heavy ... but the SG had a thinner neck than the les paul .... and it had a whammy bar and that sweet trick tone the fender doesn't have ... this is excellent! those crunchy fat guitar chords are to die for. Makes me want an SG again. Fine playing and singing.
Cheers

I can relate to the weight issue, I have a les Paul studio for that issue but your right the SG is light and a lot of room on the neck. I'm a strat/Tele player as well so this is not a replacement rather part of my meager collection. Thanks for the listen!

Great sounds John
The SG sounds like it really has it's own personality. I used to want an SG so badly when I was younger - if they all sound like this, it might have been a good idea.
Lovely playing and I still really like your vocal style. Cool post.

I can't see it as a replacement but more of an addition, like you said, guitars have their own character and to me help with the writing process. Thanks for the listen, nice to see you around macjams.

Understatement
Great sound bed.

I'm liking the understated vocals, too.

Well, when you sing "Just let me scream," it ends up being the guitar that does the screaming .. and filling in for those words that can't be found. That's a nice touch. And perhaps aptly expresses muddle of the disorder.

Like your take
This kind of behavior can be handle usually if words take the place of emotional outrage. I'm not any good at controlled screaming so I'm glad you offered me the escape. Thanks for the listen and observation.
