JDR-94 mod

This is not a bass diary, it's for my first electric guitar.

Couple tuning machines had the little plastic pieces broken, which made the tuning even more difficult.  It had been a few years since I re-finish the guitar, and as my first electric guitar, it is time to show it some love.

Time for motivations

Looking for motivation sometimes is hard, as human-beings get lazy easily.  it's time to watch some of my favorite videos on youtube so I can get my butt back to the seat and start practicing.

This is a little guide to introduce Compressor / Limiter from a bass player’s point of view.

Unlike other type of guitar/bass effects such as distortion, modulation(chorus, flanger), delay, reverb.  Dynamic effects such as Compressor, Limiter, Expander, and Gate change the signal’s dynamic range (amplitudes) and very often beginners have hard time hearing how their sound is being altered.  This guide covers basic information on main compressions, in a less technical form.
