Hey Friends, happy holidays! I have recently been asked to do a series of Telecaster pickup demos for Seymour Duncan. It requires alot of pickup swaps so its a good thing I have 5 Telecasters LOL!
I prefer to write my own compositions in all my demo work. This allows me to showcase the diversity when switching between pickups which I have done with this first demo.
Anyway, BIAB has been a real Godsend as usual. This is a mis-mosh of RT and my own guitar / bass tracks combined. I can post exact tracks likely but there is as little as 30 secs of each and you vets can hear whats what. Only Real Drums are through-out. Anyway, I hope you enjoy! Cheers! BTW, these are all HD vids if you want to watch in clarity.

Merry Christmas to you too! I could listen that all day long!! I play a Strat exclusively and I love to hear the Country twang of a Tele with good pups expertly picked. Its a sound I can't really get on my Strat even with (special) Bridge/Neck selected. Make my day - post up the Head Link to the other files!! Brill! cheers ian

Yee Haw! I just got my tele fix for the day. The cool thing about teles is they inspired players to come up with a unique style ( hybrid picking,chicken picking,pedal steel bends, double stops etc.) that are specific to that model of guitar. Great playing! Keep posting. Thanks for sharing. Tom
Its an interesting exercise to write a tune with the intent to showcase the strengths of the different subtleties of pickups. I hope you enjoyed the tones. I have the '2nd' half of this vid rendering where I explain live and in real-time how I got the tones. Ill add it to this thread when I have it done.
BTW, I just updated the vid to the 'official SD channel version'.
Hey all! Super thanks for the great reply and positive responses. I wish I had the time to chill here a bit more.

Thanks Rob! Yes, I have serious intentions of user Tracks, though starting with a Rockabilly series since it doesn't yet exist. Besides, Brent has the country stuff covered and these would just be versions of his licks anyway! LOL!! I better upgrade soon!

I am overwhelmed with the great feedback and positive support! Thank you Bud! BTW it was very recently (16 months ago), I could not play a lick of this. Not a lick.

Thanks Mario! That is a great compliment. SD has alot of great demo players, I just hope to offer a fresh approach to the Tele side of things. It helps me think differently as well and helps me expand as a player. Its a win-win.

Thank You Trevor. Some of the technique I learned just for this. And I inspired some of the riff ideas from the resonator and made them my own and adapted them for the Tele. I appreciate the listen and support.

Many thanks Al! Funny truth, it doesn't feel effortless when I play, but when I look back it always does. The first time I ever videoed myself I noticed how relaxed my hands looked and I thought to myself, I think I can do this. Still it requires my full attention and focus to play well. LOL!
Happy Holidays all! BTW, the 2nd Tele vid will be done in about 2 weeks.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
