Greetings and salutations to all you beautiful people in Kemper-land. It’s been a minute since I popped my head in to see how y’all are doing. I sure hope this message finds you all healthy and happy.
After several years of self-imposed retirement from guitar and playing/performing music in general, I found myself presented with a unique musical opportunity that I simply could not pass up. A trio of like-minded chaps who are local to me asked me to join their group as a second guitar player. The plan is to cover some deep cuts from our favorite albums and write a few tunes that violate every known “rule” of songwriting. Should be fun.
In my opinion, this is where the Kemper is really going to shine. The other guitarist has a traditional rig with a few pedals and gladly will handle the traditional duties of a guitar player. Meanwhile, I’d like to pull out some of the craziest, coolest, non-guitar-like rigs possible for our original tunes. Synth pads, buzzing sawtooth leads, weird sound effects; you get the idea. I will probably throw in some acoustic and 12-string emulations, maybe some whammy pedal nonsense too.
I am pretty sure the Kemper has the goods to make this happen, I just need some inspiration from y’all to get started. Feel free to post your favorite wacky rigs or tips and tricks on using the Kemper effects. I haven’t dug too deep into the morphing thing, despite it being one of the coolest features to ever hit the Kemper, but I think it’s time.
Thanks everyone! Be well.
EDIT: I have a Baritone Tele which will 100% be tossed in for extra coolness.
