.. and turning up all sorts of 'suckage (TM Peego).

Having been inspired by littleuch's Rats in the attic I'm determined to get back into recording but remembered that I'd some stuff languishing on the hard drive from 5-7 or so years ago. Some are more polished, some just sketches.

First up some 'blues'. The first 12 bar is stolen from Brit bluesster Aynsley Lister. As a professional lead blues player he wondered what he could play for his grandmother when she asked him to play something. The lead and walking bass line can be played simultaneously.

The following verses are me just winging it in various styles. I have to admit I don't enjoy the blues as a genre - it probably shows :

Aynesley Blues

On the other hand like everyone else I do get the blues. This is what the blues sounds like to me and somewhat bookends the musical range of the old recordings.

I'll keep posting these until someone deposits a significant amount of cash in a named bank account.

OK - No takers.

Jazz - don't like it (apart from the 20's to 40's when 'outside' notes were unnecessary. But I do accept that they have the theory knowledge and chops - so in the interests of trying to improve my musical knowledge (sic) this was a single take over a more 'jazzy' chord progression.

As a wise man once said - 'you're only ever one fret away from the right note :

Just getting around to listening. On Aynesley Blues your guitar disappears @ 1:55 (just bass and drums), then @2:16 it appears we have the end but the clock continues running (dead air) until 3:23 when the bass comes back in. You French and your crazy avante garde ways :-p

There are some nice tones and phrases in there. I know you said 5-7 years ago, do you remember what guitar/gear you used?

I could see "Strange Blues" being a soundtrack for a 60's/70's retro film. Strobe lights would be involved.

Again, gear? I hear reverse reverb, no?

Thanks littleuch

"You French and your crazy avante garde ways :-p"

As a good Ulster Protestant I deny such accusations of perversion ;-)

Or to put it another way - sloppy editing. As I said most of these are just sketches put together in the evening before I'm called for dinner. I tend to just loop the rhythm tracks and probably missed deleting loops after I indended to stop - sorry!

Recording set-up is unchanged and as basic as it gets. H&K Tubeman recording pre-amp running through an old Johnson J-Station (just for modulation, reverb, delay) into Cakewalk Guitar Tracks (basic - not the pro version).

I much prefer the analogue Tubeman to the J-Station modelling but I'm sure the digital tools have progressed immensely since then.

Thanks for the comments!

Ahh, I had the Johnson J-Station for a while, then a Behringer V-Amp, then a POD 2.0 and now a Boss GT-001. I think for starters I had a Digitech GSP-7 rackmount, which is probably still back in Michigan in a friend's PA rack (we had slotted in there to use for vocal reverb when his effects unit crashed).

I like the Boss GT unit. For the track I recently posted I used some downloaded presets available at Boss Tone Central. I usually can shape my own clean and gritty guitar settings, but on pure gain/drive the tone palette becomes much more confusing to me. If it sounds bad, well I can blame someone else, ha.

Keep on rockin', Charente. I think there are four or five us here now at the HRF, lol.

Wow - that many?

Here's one I'd posted before (2007 I think - good god - posted on the chop shop thread to illustrate a point) but at least I tried to make it a more finished track. First 'solo' was pre-arranged. Second was just winging it apart from a punch in edit to reference Bill Nelson :

Funky mixo

The GT stuff I recommend thinking of it literally like an amp - get your base tone from it, and apply an appropriate faux gain pedal (labeled in such a way that it makes sense, like hit a Marshall with a DST+ if you want that 80s sound, etc).

Don't think in terms of two channels until you have one down!
