as I said several times in the past, once my first new tutorial was up, I would start adding older tutorials that I had around.
Here’s AC/DC’s Back in Black, Part One and Part Two.
Back in Black Video Tutorial Part One
Welcome to solodallas.com Tutorials!
Today, I feel I can say a new era begins for solodallas.com: tutorials. I.e., what this place was born to make.
Tutorial Video, Part One
Update: Our Own NitroAngus23 has pointed out to us that a brief article has been published on the official AC/DC site. Without permission, I am reposting here:
AC/DC Trivia: Angus Goes Wireless!
I feel like I can’t keep on stealing from Premier Guitar.
So I’m linking you to it: Must We Restore?
Update: Listened to you guys and re-did the drums levels. Plus added some compression on the drums, too (helps the punch). Huh?
Well, as much as Angus or Malcolm said they didn’t like Marshall Master Volumes of that era, they used them extensively, or at least live they did. I think – I am starting to think seriously – that they used them sometimes in the studio as well. I am conducting experiments to verify this, but it all takes time. It’s easier instead to prove it with original era videos. These are some of them for example. All JMPs, and likely, many 2203s (Marshall 100 Watt Master Lead MkIIs). Can be heard clearly in Angus’ tone, unmistakeably.
So when you wonder, “what a late ’70s Marshall JMP 2203/2204 sounds like?“. Well, this is IT.
Here for you are some of these videos, “remastered” it says, these are from YouTube:
High Voltage (one of their best performances of this song)
In this issue of Premier Guitar, Platt is interviewed again regarding the techniques used for recording Back in Black,
i.e the whole album.
It’s no surprise then that this album, still increasing in sales, is now the second highest selling album in history. That fact in itself tells us several things: not only is it preparing itself to break that record but it may also be considered (as I do, and I have done for years) the most sold album of all time, not only in rock music, but across all genres: out-selling The Beatles, Michael Jackson “Jacko”, etc.
Confirmation surely, that the band was and still is a great band (more…)
