The Knack – My Sharona (Studio version)

12 Aug The Knack – My Sharona (Studio version)

Now this one I hadn’t seen for a while. It’s one of my first videos. I still had my Studio, Studio58a. I had designed that studio myself, its colors and gear. Everything. Too bad Studios in Italy don’t do well if you’re honest.

Anyway, it was played with a 1959 Les Paul Custom, a real one. Now sold (it had a few issues and weighed a ton. Unbearable. Good tone though 😀 ) and I think a Marshall head and an old cabinet (the red cabinet you see there I still have it; it’s an original 1969 4×12 with original greenbacks).

We miked it to show how you work in the studios. Good stuff.

The quality is what it is. It was recorded poorly at the time and YouTube did the rest with the compression and re-encoding. You get the idea though.

This was one of the first videos to go, in the sense of, being deleted, years ago by YouTube for copyright infringement. So it is a good thing that it’s the first “old one” that I repost. I will repost almost all of them, especially the older ones.

I hope you will be pleased.

Yours, SoloDallas

      Hope So Rob. Right now I’m rather angry at some shop that has not delivered both microphones. Reason for I’m being silent, is that I don’t have the damn microphones yet. As soon as I do, I am going to shoot a load of things. I am going to overload this place.

        Same goes for me. Being a bit angry at my bank for taking at least two days for booking the paypal payments for the amp. Just cant wait for it, for the amp and for new videos from you with the JMP.
        Wish I could throw a round of beer for us when it arrives here 🙂

    Hi Fil,
    Haa… I never seen this clip before! I didn’t check it here couse I know the other version and I assumed that it’s the same from, grrr @#$@%*, Youtube. Nice one! Your playing is so smooth, it’s very clear that you like this tune alot. Me too :), but I have one question: how (or when) does your learning process became “natural”? It will be an awesome help if you, someday, will show how did you “attack” a song, piece by piece.
