Lollar CC neck pickup & lots of jazz and blues

New toy time! And it’s not the guitar I’m talking about – I finally got a Lollar CC neck pickup – the humbucker route version, which is now installed in the neck position of my G&l. I’m very happy with the sound – both clean and with ‘moderate’ overdrive – and have been playing almost continuously since installation. Here’s a video to illustrate my thoughts:

 

 

Apart from the looper, I’ve used an AC Booster for overdriven sounds. As mentioned in the video, this neck pickup allows for great presence when playing with a band – it’s much easier to cut through the mix and I find the sound full and a joy to work with.

 

More lessons, updates and videos to follow shortly!

Jim Hall – London Jazz festival 2012

This is the last time I saw Jim hall live, but his genius lives on and inspires guitarists to persevere and look for their own, unique, style of playing.

The sense of musical bravery and adventure is ever present in his improvisations – in his eighties at the time of this performance, the master delivered an interpretation of a classic mixed with spontaneous improvisation and effects – great playing!
