  1. So I mentioned in another thread that I was going to start buying parts to build a Sportscaster, but the money's just not there. So I'm doing a "first draft" on a Squier so I'll have the experience to do it right (and probably just move some of the parts over) when I have the money to buy a MIM Strat or whatever. But I'm stuck at the switch. So many people have said Alex used a "Gibson switch" or "Les Paul style switching" that I went out and got a Les Paul switch. Then I found where Freddy G. said the wiring is Bridge/Neck + Middle/Neck, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to do that with a two-position common-center Gibson switch. Then I read somewhere that it's a special 3-pole switch used in the three-humbucker Les Paul Deluxe. I googled for an hour for "three position Gibson switch" and got nothing, plus a lot of links to normal, two position Gibson switches. Nobody seems to have a wiring diagram for this either, and so I'm sitting here ready to solder, I might or might not have the right switch, and can't find this answer. I sent _pete_ an email a few days back but haven't heard from him. Anybody have any idea? If it was a SuperStrat I'd just experiment, but my temperament doesn't do well with having to wire it up one way, assemble it, put strings on, try it, then take the strings off, disassemble it, try it a different way, reassemble it, put strings back on it, etc. Probably the #1 reason I hate working on Strats. Anyway, if anyone could point me in the right direction, this is driving me mad. -mark
  2. I think I captured this link from BookFace but apologize if it has been posted here. The vid descsription tells it all.... Isolated Alex guitar scanned from the wireless amp signal at a live show.... gives me goosebumps to listen to this; so simplified and pure but no less exciting and entertaining, at least that's how I feel.... Rock on! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTIfYDto3nc
  3. RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson says that he will spend the next 14 days "self-quarantining" to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. Earlier today, Lifeson took to RUSH's official Twitter to write: "Just returned from Spring Break with my gKids. We are all self quarantining for 14 days. All travellers should. Looking forward to getting caught up on Netflix!! Send your top viewing suggestions. – Alex" The province of Ontario, where Alex lives, currently has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Canada. On Saturday, Ontario reported 24 new cases, the highest daily increase since the outbreak began, bringing the total number of cases to 103. There have been more than 169,000 confirmed cases and more than 6,000 deaths so far, putting public health systems and emergency services under immense pressure. Officials have made it clear that the elderly — especially those with heart, lung and immunological conditions — are particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus, with at least 25 deaths linked to one nursing home in Washington. In Italy, which has one of the oldest populations in the world, one hundred percent of the people who have died have been over 60, and the vast majority over 80
  4. I recently acquired a "parts/repair" TC-1210. It was listed as "won't power on." I don't see any obvious damage inside, and I know TC Electronic doesn't support this product anymore. Does anyone have a schematic or know anyone who could repair this?
  5. Was thinking about Alex's playing and thought it would be fun to compile my 10 favorite Lifeson solos. I pulled these from the top of my head and didn't listen to or look up anything as I wanted it to be organic. Here they are: Working Man La Villa Strangiato Freewill The Analog Kid The Weapon Kid Gloves Between the Wheels Emotion Detector The Garden Anesthetize What are yours?
  6. It's time to dig into the archives and find the classic treeduck threads of yesteryear. For part one I thought of Alex Lifeson, cakes and it all just came together just like Clockwork (angels) - though this was well before that album... http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/20070-should-alex-lose-some-weight/page__hl__lifeson
  7. Believe me, I know this sounds crazy. I have a coworker who swears that when he was in high school and college (late 70s/early 80s) it was common knowledge that Alex claimed to have learned to play guitar from Jimi Hendrix while he was in a coma. I've laughed at this many times but he still sticks to it. After doing some searching on the topic I've come up blank. Has anyone here ever heard of this rumor or is this guy the only one who has ever heard of it. Thanks for the help!!
  8. anyone can post a question, anyone can answer, but you must answer using Rush lyrics lyric replies can be as much or as little of the lyrics as you like (though please try to resist using single-words :D )
  9. Talk to me people we need to communicate! :smoke:

  11. Not sure if this thread has been done before, but I figured I'd start it anyways. Pretty straightforward: what's the best guitar sound/song on each album. In your opinion of course (unless it disagrees with mine ;) ) (As usual posting only the albums I've listened to ) Rush: ...Working Man for the riff, but if you ignore Alex's less experienced earlier style the whole album is great for guitar! 2112: 2112, namely the solos in Presentation, Soliloquy, and Grand Finale, but I love the start of Something For Nothing AFTK: Xanadu (for the intro) Hemispheres: La Villa Strangiato (was there ever any question?) PeW: The Spirit Of Radio MP: Red Barchetta Signals: The Analog Kid P/G: Between The Wheels PoW: Territories/Middletown Dreams HYF: Turn The Page/Open Secrets/Lock And Key ... CA: Clockwork Angels (that guitar entrance is still the most amazing sound on the album to me)

  13. Another article on the RRHOF from the Village Voice. Didn't they employ that clown Christgau for a while? http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2013/04/rush_rock_and_roll_hall_of_fame.php?page=2
