    This is such a cool, mellow but strong song. Fun jazz chords here and there too! I used 2 profiles of a '67 Fender Bassman on this...the rhythm is just the normal setting, clean, through a Fender 212 with EV SRO speakers (top hats). The lead/fills is the same Bassman but pushed through a Marshall 412 with greenbacks and boosted with a Road Rash overdrive. Not your typical setup for a Bassman but we wanted something different and it works here!

    We will be doing more profiles of cool amps and have a few ideas to try out in the near future. Check it out :wave

    Excellent version!


    It doesn't seem like it's been 40 years since that one was released.

    Nice playing and vocals.

    Just curious; what position(s) do you use when playing the diminished chords?

    Thanks!

    Hmmmm...trying to remember as I learned it quick and then recorded it. I was all over the neck with those chords but no higher than the 9th fret. If I can remember, I'll let you know!
