Jtv59 & Gr33

Recommended Posts

Put the GK 3 Pickup on and tracks really nice.  Really like the 12 string acoustic with strings on the GR 33.

Does anyone actually use a Roland guitar synth when playing with, e.g. a cover band?  I can find all sorts of solo performances on YouTube and plenty of synth-oriented original stuff, but no examples at all of a guitarist covering a real keyboard or horn part in an ensemble situation.  I've been toying with the idea of using a GK3 and GR-55 with my JTV-69, but am starting to get the impression that the Roland may sound better on paper than in reality.

Here's a video I saw over on the VGuitar forum (  http://www.vguitarforums.com  ) awhile back. I think it shows off  examples of a guitarist (and bass player) using the GR-55 for real keyboard or horn parts in an ensemble situation.

There are many more videos of groups on the gig and in the basemant but you have to search the videos which are primarily tutorials.

In one of the bands I play with, we cover Alicia Keys' "Girl on fire", and it's me who plays the organ part with a Roland GR55.
Then there are some dance/disco songs that don't need any guitar but do need other stuff, and there's layering.
For example: I'm playing a JTV acoustic model and need some extra kick for some section of a song, so, on the correspondent

GR patch, I have another 6 string acoustic, or a 12 string, ready to be used. There are many other examples of layering I do.
I'm using the GR55 into the fx return of an HD500, and two variaxes (JTV89 and 700)
