George Quinn replied to Michael S. Jackson's discussion Strings in the group Taylor Owners
"Up until I bought my Taylor 416ce four years ago, I'd always used light gauge strings. I'd also quit playing three times so the guitar (a lower-priced Takemine) spent most of 30 years in a case. But when the guy at Madison Music put the…"

George Quinn commented on grant's group Coffee House Players
"Michael M: As far as posting The Brady Dirge, I'm assuming it's possible to post just the audio file (mp3), but I've never looked into it.  Think I will...after I watch that Pete Townsend clip Ed suggested.  "

George Quinn commented on grant's group Coffee House Players
"Played my first open-mic last Tuesday night at Brocach Irish Pub across the street from the capital building here in Madison, WI. The last time on stage was a horrible experience forty years ago in Chicago. This time, there were no major flubs as…"

George Quinn replied to Dave Sterenchock's discussion Recording vs. Playing live. in the group Home Recording
"It seems the logical approach would be to separate the live-performing artist inside you from the one who wants the best results from a recording session. One has nothing to do with the other. There's no line to draw. One of the best solo…"

George Quinn commented on grant's group Coffee House Players
"A "cover' band is one that's known for sounding like the original. There's a Steely Dan concert DVD where they're in the limo on the way to the gig and commenting (favorably) on a couple of bands that "cover" their…"

George Quinn commented on BrotherX's group Home Recording
"Problem solved, at least regarding the Boss 8 track recorder (which is really 6 due to 2 dedicated-stereo tracks).  I thought that when you've recorded the six tracks and then recorded a track over one track, the new track records over the…"

George Quinn commented on BrotherX's group Home Recording
"Thanks for the response.  I never use the song sketch mode, so the problem isn't wave files. When I check to card to see how much memory I've used when I get the "card full" message, it's nowhere near a gig. What I…"

George Quinn commented on BrotherX's group Home Recording
"Anybody else using the Boss BR 800?  I like it but there's a problem with an error message I'll get not far in recording that the memory card is full.  It happened again last night when I was 7 minutes into the first track of…"

George Quinn commented on Edward Sparks's group Capo Users Group
"Capo design has changed a bit through the years (along with my hair color and quantity) and the one I use now is the best so far, a Kyser. The trick is to get it close enough to the fret to deaden the strings but permit the fingers to navigate the…"

George Quinn replied to Dave P's discussion Taylor 800 series and string gauge in the group Taylor Owners
"I purchased a 416ce-ltd from Madison Music around 2 years ago and it was strung with Elixir mediums (0.13).  The next set I used were Elixirs with an 0.12 E-string and noticed a distinct drop in bass response and have gone back to what was…"

George Quinn replied to Pascal Proust's discussion External microphone for my classical guitar in the group Home Recording
"If I were to either play a classical guitar live, and especially if I were to record it, I would consider a pick-up mounted either inside the hole or attached to the guitar soundboard and use the output to augment what the mic picks up.   "

George Quinn replied to Dave Sterenchock's discussion Cassette tape to digital. in the group Home Recording
"Years ago I purchased a program from a British gent called "Wave Repair" and used it originally to clean up vinyl recordings and then later to clean up cassettes. A neat feature was "Get Fingerprint" where once you've…"

George Quinn replied to Jud Hair's discussion Unwanted Accompaniment ... how best to handle? in the group Coffee House Players
"Maybe occasional prompting of audience participation for a particular song would be a way of setting a boundary line.  There's a chorus of the Kinks' Autumn Almanac that cries for a sing-a-long.  I might go so far as to work out…"
