    I have a lot of old tapes from late 80's and 90's with demos, rehearsals and live gigs etc etc and decided it was time to save them. I might post some of it in this thread and I'm starting with an old demo probably from 1989.

    For this one I was using a Tascam 4ch porta, Zoom 9002, Yamaha RX21 drum machine, a Fender "wannabe" base and my black 1986 mij Strat.

    Nice playing Magnus. Technically demanding but melodic. I'm looking forward to hearing more of what you dig out.

    Here's a Clapton cover I found from a rehearsal and I would guess it's from 1991. As usual in those days I plugged directly into a JCM 900 head with no extra bling bling i.e. no extra distortion pedal. Had a DD3 delay in the effect loop though.

    Yep get the idea :) There's something special about the JCM and I cannot express it with words.

    Btw many years later I borrowed a JCM 900 head that seemed to be a 2nd generation? Anyway the tubes were a bit worn and I could crank it up to 10 on a gig playing Christmas songs. I have never heard an amp sounding so sweet

    Here's another porta demo song i found made with Strat, Bass & Drum machine.
    First few seconds is a no guitar version and then the gtr comes in.

    I never got rid of the RX21 btw but it's not likely I will use it again.
    Was very useful at the time though.

    Saved some more old tapes and here's two more songs recorded with Zoom 9002 and Tascam 4 ch porta. Probably from 1989 or 1990. Me and a friend did these two and he is playing the keyboards and bass.

    Btw I'm kind of surprised the tapes had not totally demagnetized after so many years but now I have them in bits and bytes.

    Cool stuff Helter! Eventually i rolled my strings to prevent eye accidents :) btw no od-pedal in my vid, just straight into 50w jcm 900 head with one 4x12 cab. I had a boss dd3 in the effect loop though

    Yes, good stuff Magnus. Wish I could still get around the frets like you do.

    Ok now I'm cheating because this one is not very old and there is no JCM either but it's probably one of my better challenges

    man i really liked that. what were you playing through? i really liked how the sweet feedback was taking over the end of alot of notes......realll really cool!.

    heres one i "kinda" like where i used the 500x and the harmonizer on one of the challenges...i had only listened to a few bars before i played over it so the part in the middle caught me off guard.....

    Thnx Helter!. I'm using my THR 10 as always these days.
    Your harmonizer song gave some cool Iron Maiden and Yngwie vibes
