Hey Tommy -- I've been very busy with some other art and business, but just starting to get my chops back and do some serious re-entry. And I miss some of the great players and songwriters here -- Like you. Still have your AC30?

Hi Robert, Montreal Express is really cool, love the tight sound and great guitar sound and tone. Also love Prismatica. Great work.

Thank you, Sue. Glad you liked it.





Hi Robert,

"Montreal Express" That's a fine piece of work. Your guitar phrasing is on par or better with Jeff Beck's work on "Blow by Blow".

As always I love your guitar tone. Hell, I'll write you 50 songs if you'll just tell me how to get that tone.

Excellent work Robert.

Thanks, Kenney. Compared to Jeff Beck "Blow by Blow' = that's ...uh... wow. I saw JB on the Wired tour where he did tunes from Blow by Blow and Wired. Maybe I picked up a little of that, but that's a big mountain to climb. The tone, is a little tricky: It's an Ibanez Prestige guitar modded with DiMarzio Evolution (as in Steve Vai's JEM777), a FU big trem block and noiseless trem springs through a complicated signal chain. How could I not tell you after that JB reference: Compressor - Volume Pedal - Fulltone OD - Highpass filter - Mesa Boogie Dual Recto Amp with 4 x 12 Marshall 2000 speaker cabs - Parametric EQ - Chorus with 6 voices - Stereo Delay = all sim from Fractal Audio Axe FX

Ehhhh. okay then. I'll pick those up tomorrow????
thanks ............. kenney


Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods posted over 30 days ago


PS: that was not a comparison to JB. You stand strong on your merits. If I was a real guitarist I would aspire to reach your level of proficiency.

It's just great work you do ....................... kenney.


Robert Adams posted over 30 days ago


Thank you, so very much, Kenney. I really appreciate that.


Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods posted over 30 days ago



By the way I've got a $75.00 Mexicaster a $75. Chinese amp and a used Pod Line 6 that I got off ebay from a pawn shop in Detroit for $75 bucks. So upon further review of your set up, I can see that with just a couple o more toys, I think I might be fairly close to being able to achieve that great tone you have. ;-) Whoo hoo....................... kenney


Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods posted over 30 days ago


The ticking and the hiss on the Chinese amp were not extra, that came with the standard package. I think I scored on that deal!!


Robert Adams posted over 30 days ago


Well, it's like so many other things in life. The equipment is the veneer, but the real substance is what lies below that. You asked about the tone, but the overall sound comes from a billion hours of playing. My setup for that song or Mexicaster / Chinese amp, ultimately doesn't matter so much as what you're trying to say through it. Like all art, it's about identity, and you do a great job with that.


Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods posted over 30 days ago



Thanks Robert,

That's quite profound. And your right about the veneer part. All your equipment and that incredible tone wouldn't carry the day without the player and all the hours dedicated to your craft. That's what really shines through in your performances.

It's like I always say about song writing. A weak hook really well produced is still a weak hook. A nice studio setup or tons of hi tech equipment can't change that or give it substance that just isn't there.

"Montreal Express"! Wow, as always, just great guitar and production Robert! Love the energy here, and again, as always, your eclectic tastes and most talented ranges, are a delight!

Kenney, your set up sounds very familiar to mine; just wish I had mo betta toys! But hey, I'd have to learn how to use them, so, I'm thankful for what it is.

It's great to hear everyone's style and sound, as each expresses those moody muses that haunt; all in a state of learning and evolving! Ain't life great!


Robert Adams posted over 30 days ago


Thanks, Cyndi. I think we all agree that it's about the story (sonic or lyric), not so much the voice it's told with. To be clear on mine for this song: My amplification is sim, without all the hardware. Recorded direct.

Hey Jeff - Thanks for the review of my song Seven Waves. That was the funniest review I've ever received. On par with Nathaniel for humor. One of the first songs I recorded, haven't listened to it in a long time, but I think your analysis was on the mark. I think I've gotten better in some areas you mention, and treasure the reference to Leslie West, even though I'm not sure how to take that.

Leslie West is a hellacious guitar player, and he's still active after some major setbacks. It sounded like the bass player on that song was 6'7" 280 ! You've come a long way from that one to Ninth World (which is on my Ipod)!!


Robert Adams posted over 30 days ago


He is. He was such a big influence on so many players, too, like Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople and Bad Co. I probably had that bass track too high in the mix. That is the fretless bass of Tony Franklin of the Firm, Paul Rogers, Whitesnake etc.


Radiation Mountain posted over 30 days ago


Would you believe Tony Franklin actually commented and said hello on my MySpace page? Back when MySpace actually a good site for meeting and listening.


Radiation Mountain posted over 30 days ago to Robert Adams


Roberts I recommend going to the "Fin Kneel" page and listening to "Ambient 60". I think it's pirated sound from Prismatica with a few added beats. I had a song completely pirated today by this person.

'Robert' I mean. (reflexive, habitual typing of my last name...)


Robert Adams posted over 30 days ago


Thanks Jeff. It has some similar sounds under the beats, but I don't hear my song there. Sorry to hear about your song being pirated

Robert, you might find my newest upload interesting. ambient background I recorded 30 years ago, needs melodies or guitar riffs, amongst other things. have a listen to ambient 60
