Post Bamboo! 30 min gig video
I love the tone of my Bamboo SG-12 with the new strings. I'm tuning a half note lower than the SE recommendation for MR and I use a bit thicker strings than the SE heavy set. And I play only on the neck pickups and with the thinnest, non-boosting, filter knob setting of the PASV-4. I may like my fatter and warmer sounding Wenge SG-12 when standing close to the amp, but when hearing the Bamboo back at a distance, like watching this gig video, the transparent sound of Bamboo wins! Both Sticks have the same pickup so the big difference in sound has to be due to the wood.

When playing on a "not so good" amp the Wenge gives a better sound but when playing in a context like this with the Fractal Audio amp the Bamboo adds another dimension, that I like a lot.

I love your version of Satie's Gnossienne No. 1! In fact, just last week I was attempting to convert a classical guitar score to Chapman stick.... not much progress on that project.

Do you have a lead sheet that shows the chord progression along with the melody that is stick friendly?

No, I'm afraid not. But the chord progression is rather simple; just the three common minor chords. Like (if assuming the key B minor) for example: B minor, F#minor, E minor. Then play the melodies softly and remember passing by the tritonus. (and use a sharp 7th in melo#3, instead of the flat, that is in melo#1)

Listen to the mathematical structure: where the bass note hits, then two chord hits and a silent "hit". The same groove loops through the entire song, layered behind the three harmonies and the three melodies. Amazing composition, I think. :-)

Per Im glad you posted some of your settings. I can try those when My SG12 comes in. ( a few months) You are one of the reason why I wanted one.
