Hi everybody,

I just came to this forum to learn some new things in jazz guitar... I have been playing jazz since 7 years now (for 15 years of play) but I consider myself still as a beginner, but motivated!

I am French and just moved to the US 3 month ago (Evanston, IL). I hope to meet some musicians there maybe some jam sessions will help.

I traveled very light so I had to find new gear to play. Interested now in modern jazz sound and very versatile instruments, I just bought a parker PM20 guitar with seymour duncan pickups which is really lovely to play (and so light!). For a solid body the sound can be very warm and deep, but also very funky so that's good for some rhythms or bluesy tunes. I was looking for an inexpensive amp and I just found a roland DAC 50 XD which is funny with its 4 speakers. The response is really straight and the equalizer allows to get a good jazzy tone. The delay can works as a nive reverb...



Below is also a pic from one of my concerts in France.



Talk soon on this forum!

Sure Felix, I'd love to get together if possible. I'm out of town at the moment and my work schedule is usually pretty hectic, but maybe we can arrange something in the near future.

Regards,

Paul
