    say the least and some bits of binding have come off I had it last in 1996 I think when I thought I d never play guitar again and I sold it to Chris Leonard Chris aka the skinny rock n roll Jesus had a great career as a session guitar player and is now a songwriter He s celebrating as songs he wrote with Jake Gosling with Ed Sheeran have been well received to say the least Ed s record has done over a million in the UK alone How proud I am of the boy Any way Chris came down to see me yesterday and brought Blackfish back I opened the case and it exactly the same as it was back in 96 It has a big character If you listen to the live stuff on the player on the website that this guitar Old guitars do it for me I have bought maybe 20 new ones in the last few years and got rid of all of them They offend me WOODFISH Click images to enlarge This is what is know in the trade as a bitzer I don t think there is a single Fender USA US part on the whole thing I bought a squire tele for peanuts now the thing about Japanese squires is for a brief period in the early 80 s from one particular factory they were better made then the USA Fenders This is one of those ones I guled the tele to the banjo for My Kinda Life and when that was retired I bolted the neck onto a ESP strat copy Tom Mates great lutheir made me a new fingerboard from birds eye maple and did the amazing little inlay and a local carpenter carved the fish on it I burned all the nasty varnish off it with a blow torch and with it came the tobacco sunburst finish I used this for the last Angles tour and for all the blow stuff Its a big sounding strat middly and overwound More Hendrix than Mark Knopfler I gave this to Luke Potashnick another guitarist who I had studying with me and now teaches me stuff when his band Rooster were kicking off he s used it ever since and I have nabbed it back for the Angels stuff he can have it back soon Trouble is there are no strats quite the same as woodfish It sits in the mix between the hats and bass drum being all fat and cool I tried to replace it with some masterbuilt and custom shop relics as did Luke but they didn t measure up on sonic weight and tone BTW I had a great experience with Bare Knuckle pick ups I bought a set called slowhand for a strat They are magic and made my other strat come to life those guys really listen to what you need and they know their stuff OTHER INTERESTING GUITARS Here are a few interesting

  • Little Angels - The Official Site - Bruce's Guitar Geek Corner - Your Questions
    it in b l o w I figured it finally fell apart but I see something similar on your photo Good luck for your gigs Andy A Hi Andy No this is a reproduction Yours did drop to bits a after a while Hope you re well Maybe see you at a gig or something All the best Q 1st Thank you for the return I ve waited 15 years 2nd Wondered if you put up the bitter and twisted tab 3rd Wanted to know there where going to be any little Angels shows before download Corey Whyte A Hey Corey There will be a couple and I hope they ll be announced soon I don t know myself yet having said that I haven t played B and T since we recorded it I don t think we played it live for very long Its in drop D as I recall and I don t really play like that now But I don t think its too hard I ll check it out again All the best Q Hey Bruce I ve no musician friends or anything so this is tricky What are your thoughts on an old JCM800 combo You mention you re using a JCM800 for early Little Angels so it s more suited for a harder rock and lead sound Maybe not right for me and maybe the combos are no good If I can get the Little Wing sound that would be great Cheers again Nick A Nick that could be a very good amp there What year is it and how much is it The jcm 800 is a master volume amp so more rip and it can be toppy but you can sort that The combos can be ace as they have open back cab The little wing sound is a plexi type Marshall with no master volume Like my jtm 45 s and jimi ran the amp flat out and turned down the guitar for his clean sounds giving this feeling of repressed power very different to a clean amp and guitar on full I hate that sound all clicky and clanky But despite the fact the jcm 800 has a master volume you should try and get it as it s a great amp anyway and you can get very close It may require some tweaks to get the best out of it All the best Q Hi Bruce Well I found what I think must be the amps look up here http www voxshowroom com uk amp v15 html Maybe I could be interested but I am in Germany Would like to hear it with a Treble Booster Maybe that can bring more life to it I can only highly recommend you to check out BSM Treble Boosters on your AC30s first on the normal input e g 71 73CM and HS S for Strat Singlecoils RPA California for more dirtier gain and RW F or the brand new AP WA mainly for Humbuckers This is a real cool alternative tom your TS EQ setup Check it out If you are interested contact my friend Bernd Meiser he will send you some just for testing If you don t like them send em back No problem He is very uncomplicated guy I am not telling you because I get money for it I am just a huge fan of the concept Best regards Dirk A Yes that s them I think I ll give your mate a shout about that treble booster thanks for the info I bet it sounds great Q Aaaaaah Bruce that would be great but I m all the way up in Newcastle and don t drive Where are you living these days I ll have to try and sort something out I could give you the money straight away no probs It s just the transport issue Funny thing is I ve never owned a decent amp and know absolutely nothing about them or guitars I don t know anything about guitars I just pick em up and play haha Reading your stuff here has made me realize I m missing out and I need to get the right gear Let me know where you re living and thanks a lot for all the great advice and kind offer Nick A Hey Nick I m in Brighton so it s not ideal is it If you ve never really used amps you need something a bit less unusual than the little voxes and you need to get into a rehearsal room and try the classics an ac30 a good JTM45 and fender twin black face would be good for starters They will sound really basic and brutal at first till you learn the nuances Can you borrow some amps from some one All the best Q Cheers for the advice I m looking into everything you suggested Had no idea about sticking the amp in a cupboard and reducing the sound Your tone and playing on the new DPFM is incredible It s really great to see you getting back into guitar playing again I didn t touch a guitar for years too but it s like riding a bike eh Cheers Nick A Cheers Nick Thanks The cupboard is not just for reducing the volume spill but it s almost always the best acoustic environment for distorted sounds As well as the dryness which you need for the punch in the track something happens when you get some sound pressure happening it seems to tighten up and accentuate the mids If you are using clean strat sounds mostly I have a pair of vox valve amps they are early 80 s models all valve and hard wired look like ac15 s but are something else I forget what they are but they run cleaner like a fender They do break up nicely at volume and would drive a single vintage 30 properly I got them off ebay for 300 each but they are too fender like for me and don t have the boxiness of the ac30 If you can pick one up you re welcome to take it away and give it a go If you like it you can have it cheapo 200 would be fine and just pay me when you can afford it The have a pair of ten inch speakers in each of them currently and they are no good I suggest making one into a head selling the empty cab with speakers on ebay I bet you d get 100 easy and driving a single 12 speaker in a coffin or cab So you d need a cupboard some duvets and damping and an sm 57 on a stand and a vintage 30 and you d be off with that You d get to a very good standard with that set up Q Hey Bruce Don t worry I m not stalking but a question came up and need your sage advice Could you recommend me an affordable way to record guitar Bearing in mind I don t have a good amp and don t want to disturb the neighbours too much I ve always plugged straight into recording units in the past but always end up with a plastic dead tone and no strat magic Is there any way to plug straight into something and get a decent sound I m not looking for perfection just enough to capture the classic semi clean strat sound when banging out chords Thanks in advance Your humble student Nick A Nick I think you need a small valve amp and put it in a broom cupboard with a sm57 The Marshall 5watts are great but they always make these little amps with a ten inch speaker and this is no good You need a 12 inch good speaker I always use a celestion vintage 30 and there are loads on ebay You could consider a speaker coffin so you kill the volume and you can make one easy enough An sm57 is a very cheap mic and responsible for many many classic guitar sounds You need to place it carefully that needs some research but easy enough Get it right with no eq and you can add compression a reverb and off you go Choice of head is up to you you might go up to 20 watts plus if you design your speaker coffin right Yes you need a valve amp you got to move air A DI will always be a DI and amp modeling will always be crap consequently you need to capture the magic All best Q Years ago I bought a guitar magazine which may or may not have been called Total Guitar to which you contributed a feature each episode which was going to run A to Z Unfortunately the magazine got cancelled after several issues I think G was the last one I always wondered if you had the rest of the articles written or not and if you did would you share them Nige A Hi Nige was that the magazine future publishing did called the band or something like that it was a good mag but it didn t sell well and conked out I didn t do the extra articles but I did some stuff for guitarist magazine years ago and many of my guitar students now write for the guitar mags All the best Q Hi Bruce I am so happy firstly that you guys are getting on again and secondly that you will have the opportunity to play together again you always looked like you enjoyed yourselves in the late 80 s early 90 s when I saw you play I just hope I get the opportunity to see it again I am really enjoying the new instrumental versions that you have been recording there is some really interesting use of different layers and different sounds particularly the through zero flange sound you seem to use on the Don t Pray For Me instrumental Anyway Now to the point This is not really a guitar geek question although that is what I am but with the chance to ask you one question here is mine The song STW What does STW stand for I did ask Toby but he wouldn t tell me and I think I ve been wondering about it for long enough now Please put me and I m sure others out of my misery Thanks Peter Rookyard A Hi Peter Cheers for your email There s no flange on the DPFM I think what you re hearing is the ribbon mic picking up the room sound or more likely it s the verse as my tele is wired out of phase ie the middle position sounds all hollow It was like that when I found it and it s a very distinctive sound The main lead is a strat and one of those pro co RAT fuzzboxes Anyway STW I just can t tell you I m sorry All the best Q No question but just a big thank you for taking the time to put some tabs on here and looking forward to more I started learning guitar about 1 year before the Angels split then when they split for a while i kind of lost interest in music and it took me a while to appreciate different styles and bands Anyway over the years picked the guitar up quite a few times and learned different things Now the Angels are back the guitar has been out hell of a lot and am playing better than i thought i would ever do not brilliant though I won t ask for any songs for you to tab as there s that many i would like to know how you play them i would end up going through all the albums Just a big thank you Actually one question do you think there s any chance ever of a tab book coming out I remember getting the Jam book but it was just the chord s All the best Paul Roky A Hi Paul No probs I ve been a bit quiet recently as I am finishing a phd bloody thing and also the Plaice fishing has really kicked off this year which is a distraction but I have a finished mix now of another instrumental to go up and I ll get to do a bit more filming and tabs in early April Keep playing and try working with a metronome there are loads on you tune I suggest a kick drum and it will really help you improve All the best Q NHi Bruce I asked a friend and expert concerning your problem with the Cornell cutting out after 2 5 hours He said could well be the driver tube becoming too hot after a long time must be an ECC83 I think You may experiment with changing it Have you tried a PostPhaseInverterMasterVolume PPIMV on the VOX On the VOX it is a good idea to unplug all the not used preamp valves e g on the vibrato channel to keep temperature lower and to release the OutputTransformer a bit Best regards from Germany Dirk A That s really useful Dirk thanks I ll try that All the best Q Hi Bruce Absolutely loving your Guitar Geek Corner Is there any chance of doing a video tab for the intro solo to I Ain t Gonna Cry Much appreciated Tony Bean A Yes I ll get round to that It s a simple part but it s all about the vibrato and getting some weight into the tone Definatly a big Gary Moore influence on that We all miss him the best blues rock player there has ever been in my view I met him in Brighton a few times and he helped some young musicians out without making a song and dance about it Under the gruff shy exterior he was a generous warm person Cheers Tony just give me a couple of weeks and I should have it up there Q Hi Bruce great to see you and the guys back long overdue Although a keys man still remember the chat I had with Jimmy in the toilets at the NEC of all places I always loved your solo in Juvenile Offender and the interaction between the two of you My question is will you be gluing a banjo onto a tele again for That s My Kinda Life I can still see you bouncing around the stage playing it Good times All the best for Download and can we have a tour please Leighton A Hi Leighton I took that thing to bits and used the parts to make other stuff The best bit was the tele neck which I made Woodfish from There are technical difficulties with the banjo when you have Mark Rich behind you playing thumping it out like a rhino on angeldust the banjo picks up the bass drum through its PU s and its hard to stop it feeding back I ll probably give that a miss and play the part on the tele if that s okay All the best Q Glad to see LA back in action First saw you lot supporting Cinderella years ago Saw you play loads of times It would be good if you could do a few extra dates too for those of us not fortunate enough to get to download Question time now I m a long time guitarist and have had the pleasure of playing with a few of your BIMM graduates throughout the years I ve moved over the Fusion side of things over the past few years and am really inspired by the new wave of Fusion players like Tom Quayle Martin Miller Michael Dolce etc They have forced me to learn new things Who are you listening to and why and who keeps things fresh for you Boo Littlewood A Hi Boo I am looking for a note and a sound The perfect note exists already in Peter Green s Man of the World it s so devastating that I am sure it was the turning in his mental illness getting the upper hand I am looking for the detail in simplicity and so am playing less and cleaner Inspired by people Like Etta James who use few notes but say so much I have spent time with a lot of great jazz fusion guys but it s not for me I am definitely inspired by a great vocal and it s got to come from the blues I also need a proper sound If I m not playing through a valve amp with character like a plexi then I d rather hang the guitar up for good A good sounding room will inspire me to play and I do most of my playing in the studio It doesn t work for me to over practice Best to think about music without a guitar in my hand and only play when I have something to say At the moment playing the Byrds Flying Burrito Brothers Mamma Cass all on vinyl All the best keep on doing your thing Q Hi Bruce I see you ve mentioned your old Kramer Pacer If you head on over to the kramer forum www kramerforum com forum someone on there might be able to help you find one we re a friendly bunch I m a Science teacher by trade at Michael Lee s old secondary school funnily enough and spend most of my time building and restoring valve amps My current project is a restoration of a Kelly 100w head Point to point halfway between an AC30 and a Plexi in sound Anyway my question do you use NOS new old stock valves or modern ones

    and has done excellent work on many of my guitars For fun he his building a replica of woodfish to see if we can find out why it sounds so good He has worked out what frequencies resonate when the guitar body and neck are tapped and is sourcing the right type of wood of the right age Should be a fun project watch this space as it develops Check out Ian s website and see some of his amazing work www guitar works co uk www facebook com pages Guitar Works 282963898385627 Earlier this year I added some guitars to a track from a new band called Knighthood pure British Classic Rock The band features my very good friend and biggest influence on guitar Paul Curtis and an amazing singer with the power of thunder Frank Knight Paul taught me guitar when I was about 15 or 16 and from him I learned the meaning of real rock n roll guitar playing Big sound and big vibrato we were chatting on the phone and one of us said it would be fun to do the Lizzy style twin guitar attack where we could play together both of us having
