Fuzz Bucket Duo Jams

I know I haven't posted in a long while so I'm trying to make up for it.  So here's a quick post of my most recent jam sessions.  Here are a couple recent jams featuring 2 of the 3 members of Fuzz Bucket:
Eric: guitars, synth, theramin
Dan: drums

  Since Jamie has been on vacation Eric has replaced his guitar with my Novax CH8 ,similar to Jamie's Novax CH7 prototype except mine has a shorter scale and one extra guitar string. I've been stringing mine as a 7 string with the high string tuned to E. Eric decided to add an 8th high A string. I think it brings a little extra life to the guitar tracks.  As usual he is running the guitar and bass through his awesome guitar rig with various synths and theramin incorporated into his sound.
  The drums were sounding pretty good during this session.  Apparently someone else used my kit during the couple weeks that we hadn't played and he tuned things up nicely. Sweet!

  This is an older jam, the first jam Eric and I had during Jamie's absence. Eric's using my novax here as well but the setup was different as usual. I really like the tones coming out of Eric's rig.  They are a bit light on effects which is unusual for us. The wah was behaving a bit strange but I think it gave this jam a bit of personality as well. The theremin makes an appearance about half way through. Hope you like it.
