    Hey did this track get named because of the racket the klds were making in the background?

    Another note, any thoughts on good modes/keys to use soloing over this piece?

    Yep. this is my usual guitar position:

    NO SECOND TAKES ALLOWED! ;)



    Essentially, the track was made to work well with in a Bb blues mode. The scales to play can be Bb7, Bb pentatonic, Bb blues scale, Bb blues scale with a 6th instead of 7th, Bb altered 5....

    There's an bridge with a Fm and you can still use a Bb7 scale or a Fm pentatonic.

    The freaky chords and my sons shouting/singing will simply embelish your lead lines. :)

    Read above. It's my 2 year old son running around like crazy and shouting while I recorded the bass line. I didn't realize that the mike had picked it up. :rolleyes:

    I'm without my speakers at the moment, but I'll hear your take later.

    Hey Dave,

    nice intro melody. The feeling was very early 70s..is that a flanger or phase or leslie you're using?


    thanks,

    Marin

    Thanks Marin and Nomad. Glad you liked it. Was a blast to play along too.

    As for the sound, well, some have called me a "fake" guitarist because i am using a Digitech GNX4. I used to have real amps and stuff but dont have the time nor the space to maintain all that stuff anymore.

    The opening tone on that one is a preset modeled to get an Eric Johnson sound. I tweaked it a bit further with some cabinet modelling and phase.

    Played thru an Ibanez RG370 with EMG Select bridge.

    Of course there's always some bits of Ray creeping in...he's a huge influence. Thanks
