About those clips: I don't have a good recording setup at the moment, but I could plug into my iPad and generate some stuff through Ampkit. I might even be able to dial in something djenty, as long as y'all understand that I AM NOT A METAL GUITARIST. Or, y'know, a very good guitarist in general, at least by the technical standards operative around here. I'll see what I can do over the next couple of days.

I'm not really a pinch-harmonics player, but I'll give it a shot. The output level on these seem fine to me, but then I don't usually play high-output pickups. You might PM Tom for his take on it - I imagine he has a wider perspective on the issue than I do.

-The Gospel of Thomas
Melody is the outpouring of the soul. Words interrupt the stream of the emotions.
For the songs of the souls, at the time they are swaying in the high regions to drink from the well of the Almighty,
consist of tones only, dismantled of words.
-Rabbi Shneur Zalman
