Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Let's see where this takes us. I know there are a few musicians on this board, and I being a fairly huge community, we all have different tastes. It would be nice to see us all come together for one big music discussion. Opinions on music can vary from person to person, but musicians of every caliber can always band together and ask, "Woah, dude, what are you running that Rickenbacker through?"

I'm currently juggling a few projects in my free time. My main group is called Cicada Creek. Kinda all over the place. Krautish, proggish, people compare us all the way from Hawkwind and Iron Butterfly to Santana and Cream. Honestly, I like to think we have a bit of a peculiar sound.

While things in CC have wound down a bit (we're supposed to record an album tomorrow, but that's up in the air), I've taken to writing music for a new group called The Nod. I grew up listening to the New Orleans scene. EYEHATEGOD, Acid Bath, Soilent Green, etc. Lots of that stuff is heavy on the drug reference. So it's kind of a parody. The few songs we've written are funny. Like, "Smokin Gel" and "Oh God I'm Sick". Just fun stuff.

As far as gear, I'm running a modified Fender J with an Audere preamp through a Hartke head and Ampeg cab. The Hartke may need replacement soon. It has alot of options to contour clean sounds, but there's no ass to it. I gotta use a Big Muff to get any kind of distortion out of the thing. I played through a vintage tube amp the other night while jammin with a cover band. Can't remember the name, but it was only something like... 45 watts, but it SCREAMED. Had tons of ass to it. Great control over clean to heavily compressed sound.

I'm also pimping a cheapo Yamaha PJ. Sounds good, but there is absolutely no tone control to it. Only a pup blend and individual volume knobs.

I mentioned the Rickenbacker in the OP simply because... that's probably gonna be what I save up for when I make another instrument purchase.

I thought about adding a second cab to my Hartke, but I think it might be in my best interest to maybe upgrade to a 610, trade off the 410, and go from there. I don't want to make too many changes if I'm not plannin on sticking with that Hartke head.

And finally...
Spoiler:

WANT!!!
