Little Wing played with Helix

Working up an instrumental version of Little Wing to perform for an upcoming open mic night. Thought I'd lay down a version for practice and see how it's coming along.

First few sections I play like the SRV version and then deviate. A lot of improv so I never play a "perfect" version, but it is what it is :)

Signal chain was JTV Variax Strat neck position pickup into Line 6 Helix recorded directly over USB into Ableton Live. No processing done in Ableton whatsoever.

Sounds nice. What amp and cab models did you use?
Thanks!

I used the Dr. Z amp model with the matching 2x12. U67 mic I believe. Didn't change any of the cab settings other than maybe the mic model. I don't remember what it had on it when I dialed it up.

Nice work, I really enjoyed it, listened to the whole thing. I thought it sounded great. There really are some great modelling solutions out there right now.

Thanks! Technology has truly reached an amazing place. To get that type of tone to a recording 20 years ago would have been unreachable without Pro gear. Now a laptop and an off-the-shelf pedal and you're good to go :)

Nice, we had discussed the SRV sound on the Helix in the Helix clips and sounds thread and this is the closest I've heard the Helix get to it, sounds great.
