we found the Mesa-Boogie setting on "Amplitube" I was feeling
in a heavy mood one saturday morning. Gave Dave the title one liner and
He took off from there. The solo's were on the 2nd pass & pretty much
happy accidents. Ah, my strat & marshall. Dave sure does know how to
make a drum kit sound huge...doesn't he.....
A saturday morning stumbled upon chord progression. I called Dave up around
8 in the morning and played it over the phone to him. That night we had
the arrrangement worked out and started recording it. Dave then went to
town with finding keys & backround voices for it, the only problem was
that I didin't like how I played the rhythm guitar part, so to Dave's dimay
we re-recorded it. I'm sure that Dave would agree now that the end result
speaks for itself & it was worth the trouble. My guitars were recorded
using Amplitube entirely. Interesting note the amp settings I chose we're
very noisy & would generate a signal level without even being plugged
in....a ghost in the machine maybe???
Partly an old chord progression I had since I was 16 & some lyrics Dave
had for a while, added a chorus & outro and there it is.
accidental riff for the octave intro while warming up in Dave's basement.
had the main chord progression& lyrics, I added the double stop parts
& outro progression and we had another cool tune. A one off first take
guitar solo... Dave chose the amp setting....a very fine setting indeed....
inspiration for the music at the time of coming up with this piece of music
was my son & daughter. Just thinking about them & how amazing chilhood
& life is one sunday afternoon.
idea for a cover tune. We both like Tommy Bolin stuff and it really turned
out to be an excellent choice. For some reason this tune just busted my
balls when it came to getting solo's for it.
an inspired groove from when I was watching an episode of the "Man
Show" which was loaded with some hot honey's that night.
just an idea for the two of us to just have fun, loosen up & play to
see what happens.
