      Pete Thorn you deserve it all, you really play and talk in a way few does.
      I would like sometimes, just sometimes that you could get a little more melodies out of the solos, but thats me.....i'm too much of a neal schon fan i guess.
      But your motifs are really great

    That was an amazing performance. If I was listening to music in my home or on the road I could listen to this all day. I can't say that's true for a lot of music. There's a comfortable feel to the sound, it makes sense, yet a freshness of soul from the guitar.

    Mr. T., I've been meaning to comment for quite some time, and had to get to it now. I think you are just a wizard at the blend of talents and skills that you bring to your life's work. The way that you've added to your superior musical prowess, the technical skills required to perform, record, and engineer these tracks, and then to produce complex video productions around them, is phenomenal. And this sideline you've created of assisting with the marketing of products to the guitar player market, is so impressive, as you never come off like a "pitchman", but rather a truly trustworthy "advisor", who presents honest reviews of products, from the perspective of one who does this for a living. With the endless amount of worthless time sucking garbage the proliferates in our age of internet media obession, your stuff always delivers value and entertainment. My hat is off to you. You're masterful at all you do, and seem to be a sincerely good person. It's amazing that you remain so "real" while living in LA. :>) Cheers my friend.

  • Robert Brown
    Robert Brown 8 years ago

    Fantastic. I'm having trouble stopping myself listening to this again and again. All the guitars sound fab together but I keep looking forward to the bits featuring the Suhr strat, or whatever it's called on the "in between pickups" sound. Some of the combinations of guitar sounds are a bit reminiscent of Sweet Home Alabama, but this strat sounds the bees knees for that sort of sound.

    Hey Pete! Big fan! I love Guitar Nerd and am looking forward to the new album! Question: how do you record the drums on your albums? Suggestion: a behind the scenes of the recording process on your album! That would be AWESOME to see!

    Very useful demo (and toon!) as always, Mr Thorn. Completely nailed, as per usual!
    Those Michael Britt profiles really are outstanding and have changed my view of the thing. I think if I was buying a Kemper, I'd just dump the stock ones and just use the MB packs and have done with it - save a lot of mucking about.

  • Graham Vamplew
    Graham Vamplew 8 years ago

    Once again Pete Thorn pulls an amazing piece of work out of the hat. Being able to hear the tone that works best for each part is always a very inspiring aspect of Pete's recordings. I find it the one of the most refreshing aspects of Pete's recordings. In today's industry the majority of music recorded the producer pulls up one guitar sound for the complete album and same with drums bass and so on. Each one of Pete's recordings are different sonic journeys that I find an absolutely refreshing. I wish the recording industry would take a page out of Pete's recording book and bring refreshing music back to the masses. Thank you Pete for all your hard work it does not go unnoticed and unappreciated. By the way I too own a Kemper and think it is a great piece of equipment. I hope Pete will show case the Kemper more maybe issue some of his own profiles.
    Thank you Pete

  • sherman pup

    Thanks for the guitar lesson. Great song, great playing, cool guitars. What is the Kemper amplified with? I am older and kind of behind on modern gear. One tip I can give is.. a Peavey pacer with a closed back and an EVM speaker in it, is a great SS clean amp for pedals . I have been using them for decades. Don't laugh, they are really full sounding. Keep on rockin'

    An audio fade out makes it so much more powerful, especially after that killer lead run. Pete I discovered you like 3 weeks ago man and I'm already going 6 years back... you are an absolute animal. And if it weren't for your videos I may never have heard of Ian Thornley either and so I'm very grateful for your content 🙏 🙌

  • strictlyguitartv
    strictlyguitartv 8 years ago

    Great video. Is there much difference between listening to your Kemper through your studio monitors as opposed to tracking with the sound of an amp that's miked up in another room and being monitored through the control room? One of the criticisms of modellers is that people miss the feel of being in front of a 'real' amp that's pushing the air, but I'm not sure it's that big a difference. Also I like your comment about being able to dial up a sound and just play, instead of tweaking with the tone.

    Great Tune, Lovin the Univibe also.
    As somebody that collects vintage tubes for guitar amps,
    I am loving the Kemper as a studio tool -it's indispensable.
    The amount of guitar playing I do went up massively,
    thanx to it's convenience.
    +1 on it's all about a good profile,
    I'm liking the ones with more distance on the mic.
    & while "good" is all relative to the pickups,
    I am loving the David Gilmore Hiwatt profiles.
    Thanx for the tune and the hand workout!

    Exactly Pete, I spent the entire summer 2019 in Nashville on Lower Broadway checking out all the clubs, women and bands and I was always in awe of the incredible guitar players and all the musicians that play there. Truly inspiring and as is your playing on all your clips.

  • Robert Simpson

    Hi, Pete! I really enjoy watching your videos, because no one can push guitar gear to its limits like you can! I had a question for you about the Kemper. Do you think that you would ever tour with a device like the Kemper Profiler as your primary amp set up? Do you think that, sound-quality-wise, it is what you would consider a tour-worthy device? Thanks in advance!

  • Cornelius Wurth

    Holy shit...Absolutely blown away by your playing/tone/song.I haven't played guitar in about a year,due to some issues in my life i put it down.Without guitar it feels as if there is a part of me missing.I thank you for inspiring me to pull out my guitars and Kemper again.
    I didnt know it was even possible to get such a tone out of the Kemper.
    I especially like the tone you get with your white Suhr strat,killer!
    Thanks again.

    Admittedly Pete I had not heard of you before seeing this video. My loss. You have no need to be concerned about Nashville. I lived there for several years. You are as talented as any other players I saw/heard there. As far as the Kemper I have been looking at them for a short while now. This video convinced me to get one. Have heard other profiles I liked but Micheal Britt's are the icing on the cake. Thanks Pete. Wish you a long successful career.

    Killer song Pete! Question for ya, your playing about 4 different guitars on the song, and they all sound awesome, but how do you pull it off live? Is there one guitar you have to pull it all off? Or do you make sure you just have a lot of guitar players in your band?

    • Pete Thorn
      Pete Thorn 8 years ago

      I'd use my Suhr with a humbucker and 2 singles to play this live... it's a lot of parts though, so I'd need a rhythm guitar player :)

    Great playing Peter Thorn :-) . I'n considering purchasing one soon and would like to know if you use the one with the 600W amp or can you just buy or use the profiler with effects?I have small and larger marshells but love the sound of the small marshalls and kempers tone.

    That was great! As a lifelong bass player who only recently (2 years) began focusing almost exclusively on playing guitar, I learn so much watching you play.
