I almost passed over this, cause I thought it was a spam topic; but that's a nice axe!! I keep looking at Rondo and thinking I should order some stuff from there, but the urge and the finances haven't yet matched up ....

I started out with a Ditto, then moved to a Ditto x2. They are both basic and fun to play with (I got the x2 for the same price I sold the Ditto for, so upgraded due to 'no loss of money' factor). Later I moved into the Pigtronix Infinity Looper, specifically because it outputs a MIDI clock which would sync up to my BeatBuddy drum pedal - apparently you can also get the MIDI to sync up to reverb pedals, but I haven't done that yet.

Hi Folks....Is it possible to export my chordie songbook to a lyrics notebook app, to use for lyrics on stage ?

Yes, I do exactly this; on the song go to "view" and copy them from CHORDPRO format, then save to a location and iPad app can access - I use OnSong and store them on my iCloud drive.

Not sure I know the Lightfoot one, and only vaguely familiar with the second ... I'll look them up.

There are a few tunes with bass riff's in, but they seem to be in the minority; when I was playing bass I used the same root note as the guitarist chords, then built some riffs around that to the next part of the song ...

HTH!

Neo guitar works good but found your vocals a bit hard to hear but still a good sound all round. Better than what I could do. Maybe the  microphone needs to be closer to your mouth.

Cheers - the MXL is an omni-directional microphone, so I found it picked up a lot of guitar; when I mixed it down the vocals were supposed to be treated separate to the guitar, but I found modifying anything became 'muddy' (and this was excluding the other MXL from the mix) - unfortunately when I'm doing the recording and being the one recorded, it's hard to monitor these things as they happen, and you only get to work with the outcome, so next time I'm switching back to a uni-directional mic and maybe putting the acoustic baffle on my soundhole. But thank you for the compliment!

This is again very good, Neo ... and you don't even sound a bit like Ann Wilson! lol She remains as one of my favorite female lead vocalists of all time. Nice job on one of their softer songs.

Thanks ... smile

That's cool!  Whats the tuning on it since its a short scale? or is just a smaller body?

It's normal tuning, just a smaller body - the acoustic sound is a bit thin, so I've got the pickup putting out it's sound ...
