12 Feb More Modern Classic Playing (Audio Only, LONG file)

So, fever’s gone.

I’m still down here in Dubai, will stay some more here until the snowing and freezing cold in home Rome, IT, ceases.

Prior to leaving, I had recorded a few files to study the sound of both the Modern and Classic Wizards. These were not supposed to be posted, but I thought you may be interested.

It is somehow boring, these are mere exercises of mine to warm up, be flowing etc.

This is the Modern Classic with a Les Paul, a newer one, one that I really love.

Settings on the amp are my usual settings, presence 0, Bass 5, mids 3-4, treble 5, gain 6 and master 8.

There is some post processing done to this, might get annoying in the end – sorry – but I wanted to play with this. It’s a stereo delay.

The second file is played with a 1969 SG, way below standard tuning. At some point, my 1965/1958 Les Paul Conversion “The Husk” gets in. Same settings, different guitars, to let you understand how the playing and different guitars act to the amp.

Edit please note: both takes were played with my beloved Schaffer-Vega Diversity.

This struck me as an evident truth when I got better at it. It still strikes me when I have to play lead (try to) like his lead solo on “Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution” posted the other day. If you look at the beginning of the solo, there is a major (in terms of, intense) bend there, done on the D string. I am sure that that is how he did it on the album. It’s a freaking tough job and it’s completely physical.
