    Bionic Hillbilly (A& B Sections) with Axe FX Ultra

    http://www.soundclick.com/util/getplayer.m3u?id=6884378&q=hi

    Here is a re-do of the first 2 minutes of a Hectic Watermelon tune, “Bionic Hillbilly,” from the album, The Great American Road Trip. I muted Jerry Goodman’s electric violin and Scott Lerner’s amazing first guitar solo along with all the original guitar tracks. I re-recorded the guitar parts with tweaked version of the stock Axe Ultra presets:

    Traincrash: Right rhythm guitar
    Stevie’s Rotory: Left Rhythm guitar
    Mister Dumble: head melody
    Texas Flood: guitar solo

    When my ears recover from recording this evening, I’ll adjust the mix and master buss, but here is the raw deal for now.

    Sounds great John!
    I hear some of that bloom in mr.dumble.
    Amazing rhythm tones and solo also.
    That is one serious box of tools.

    Thanks for checking out this little experiment guys. Yeah, it was fun to go crack open an old PT session and mess around with it with my live dual amp presets designed more for the live power trio version of the tune. I quickly realized that I was in the mood for some slightly different tones in the mix, so I just went to the factory presets and tweaked them a little here and there.

    For recording, I do know that if Cliff ever ports this thing into a software version, I will be the first in line for it because with a few more tweaks, I know the tones could come off much stronger here, but these were the best I could do just playing and tweakign at the same time and without adding lots of post EQ, etc.
