Hi Pete! Great site, feels like a friendly place already:)

This is a fantastic format for a site, Pete. A website, but also social media for guitar players/Thornheads. I can’t wait to see how it develops. It’s cool to be a part of it, thanks for the outlet! And I’ll share a little bit of me while I’m here!
I play guitar in Mrs. Smith’s band The Rage. (YouTube her. Think Dame Edna playing Satriani tunes on a floral Jem through a battery powered Vox amp on a sidewalk on the Lower East Side of Manhattan). I’m the Mike Keneally to her Steve Vai. Anyway, Steve loves Mrs. Smith and through his assistant, Carvin sent her a VLD1 to demo. Mrs. Smith can barely tune a Floyd Rose, so I was asked to facilitate the demo in my home studio. This is the result. Mrs. Smith, although a bit campy in inception, is no joke. She has signed an endorsement deal with a sick boutique amp company that I’m still wanting to push her down the stairs over, not to mention she’s been given Artist pricing on none other than Suhr… so apparently John is a fan as well. The solo at the end is horrendous. There was a bit that got cut out of her playing my ’71 LP Custom and I ended up jamming on it at the end. Well, it’s less than inspiring. I felt like I was learning a new scale. I don’t know what happened. But that’s Rock N Roll!

Scott from Wollongong Australia here. Looking forward getting to know some of you and talking about gear and playing an all other good things music.
I’ve played all sorts of gigs, even touring with an Elvis impersonator for 6 months! Though I’m still doing a number of different things, my main focus is getting to work with one of my favourite singers who also happens to be my best friend, which is kinda cool!
This is a clip just shot on my phone at a small club gig
All the best

Alright, two remarks from the get-go :
- Pete, at some point, release the demos, either as is or expanded. They’re just great pieces of rock music.
- Also, some of your music’s on jamtrackcentral. shouldn’t you link to that?

Just trying to post something on this topic, ’cause I can’t post in the “Share your music here”-topic. Have posted there before, but when I try to reply to some questions from fellow members, nothing happens. At least I can’t see the replies myself, and I don’t think anyone else can…
Tried to mail Pete about it, but I can totally understand that he’s busy. Is there maybe some kind of admin or support I can contact?

Forget my reply above, seems to be working now… Hopefully you all don’t see hundreds of the same answer from me in the topic, from when I have re-tried…

So good morning or evening to you all.
Several months ago I started looking for a new pedal board after using a boss ME-80 for several years and gigging with a lot I wanted something new. Pete demonstrated the HeadRush which I now have along with the HeadRush FRFR. Also just bought Pete’s albums. I would like to thank Pete for his postings on the website and on YouTube for me the HR is ideal. I hope you are all inspired not only by Pete’s music but his dedication towards us fans. Pete you have to come back to the UK and perhaps carry out a couple of clinic’s. Andertons and us UK fans would like to see you. Best wishes to you all.

Niel, new member here.
Wanted to ask where can I please buy a “flac” format of your song “Rush to the Head”?
Been looking around and all I can see is a streaming sample from the apple site.
Thanks in advance.
All the best,

Hi Pete, big fan here. I recently heard your comments on papastache102’s video about your reluctancy to share tones. It makes sense why you would keep them private given the amount of work involved in creating them. I wonder if a short disclaimer in the description of your video demos on not sharing tones might taper down similar requests? It’s a little confusing sometimes because some artists do share tones while others are more guarded. I bring this up b/c a while ago I asked if you could share your Headrush tones that you used on your killer demo not knowing where you stood on that issue. Thanks man.
