    I added a touch of swamp gas to Ola Gustafsson's cool swampy backing track.
    I laid down a background slide track with panning tremolo using open D sus tuning D,A,D,E,A,D
    Then a second somewhat driving syncopated rhythm track
    Slide is on my '61 Gibson Melody Maker

    First solo is my blue chambered strat
    Then back to slide in D tuning

    Tone press into AC Booster into Sans Amp then clean Marshall was used for the guitars

    Melody Maker is super sweet it was my main guitar in the mid-late 70's

    Hi Harry,

    I was really happy to hear your version. It is totally along the lines of what I originally intended. I didn't have enough talent myself to make it come alive the way you did but your slide playing was awesome and inspiring. Thanks for posting it.

    John,

    I have the SonicCord Toad it's a 18 watt class A or 35 watt Class A/B amp
    6L6's. It's based on the '49 Fender Super design. Just volume, a passive tone and a very cool knob he calls "mood" This seems to change the overall compression and feel of the amp. Tweed like on one end and cranked out Marshall on the other.

    I have to say the clean tone is not it's strong point at all. It has a slanted cabinet and is deeper than most. This all creates a pronounced mid that screams for OD, but the clean tone suffers.
    Somewhat of a one trick pony... very cool trick though

    Lookin' forward to your tune man

    That was killer. Great slide playing too. I need to let my son hear this as he's starting to get into the slide a bit more. He'll dig it as much as I did. Two thumbs up!
