Neil’s Feels Gear Guide Vol.002
The Polyphonic Octave Generator
Hey, Neil here for another edition of Neil’s feels gear guide. Cool shot up there taken by Cassandra Corrigan, today I’m going to talk a little bit about one of my newer pedals that I really enjoy. The P.O.G., or Polyphonic Octave Generator. Cool little stomp pedal I ordered online, really great for beefing up some chords in a big chorus or a nice clean 12-string tone. Above anything else the pedal is incredibly simple to use, which is a deal breaker for me. There are only three knobs, one for the lower octave, one for the upper octave, and one for the dry signal which dictates how much of the “octaves” you hear coming from the amp.
If you have a question about some of the gear I use, how I achieve some of my tones or even questions unrelated to that such as lyrics, email me at Neil@MotherLeads.com or leave a comment here on the page!
March/April Late Winter Run.
The time has come to announce what we have planned for the next couple months, a tour guide if you will. After Project Scarborough Vol2 (https://www.facebook.com/events/710768155621705/?ref=br_tf) we’re going to be living in a van again, hitting the road with our friends Womb. We have come to really appreciate this circuit across Southern Ontario, and we want to continue visiting each town/city as much as possible. Spring is approaching, but we didn’t want to wait. We have been building a repertoire of awesome bands that rock/and we enjoy working with, some of which you will see spread across the March/April Late Winter Run, as well as some new acts that we’re looking forward to seeing. See the Tour Guide below for the wheres and whens:
Neil’s Feels Gear Guide Vol. 001
Hey, everybody it’s Neil here for the first edition of ‘Neils feels’ where I talk a little bit about the gear I’ve been using since I started playing guitar and how I achieved some of sounds I’ve produced. One question I’ve been asked quite a few times is what guitar I was using in our music video for ‘Bring you down’. You can check it out the video below:
Tomorrow (Friday Feb 21st, 1:30pm) we will be playing an acoustic set at the Heart House, on the lovely University of Toronto Campus. CIUT has a wide audience base and tons of fans, so they aren’t exactly an “underground” broadcast. But plenty of great local (and national) underground talent is unearthed by the diverse set of dedicated show hosts. Shaun O’Neill created “Unsigned Radio” (Fridays 1-2pm) for a place to feature rock/alternative/punk bands who work with smaller labels or as an independent unit (this is the show we’re being featured on).
It’s February and we thought this may be a good time to let you know of our endeavors and activities for this month. On Friday the 7th, we will be venturing to The Rainbow for a date with SUNS OF STONE & THE WICKED MERCY. Both killer local acts from Ottawa. We have been playing with SOS for a couple of years now, and it’s never been a let down. You can get taste of what we’re dealing with right here:
