As with some of my other guitar videos this was recorded for our local on-line open mic. I felt like playing something a bit heavier and opted for my old Gordon Smith GS2 to play a Neil Young tune. I have had this guitar for over 30 years now. I see the prices have gone up a bit in that time. It actually still looks pretty new, although one machine head is falling apart and needs replacing. It is running through my Zoom G3X with a Boss DS-1 supplying some distortion. I used my Boss RC-1 to loop the chords for the solo and an Ibanez Tube Screamer for added boost.
The pedal I had not used for a while is the Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone wah. This is unusual in having no moving parts. The whole pedal rocks on the shaped base and senses the angle. There's a fun video on their site of someone operating the pedal by driving their car over it. Shows how tough it is.
I had a few goes at recording this song and this was the best take despite some pedal issues. I messed up going from the loop back into the verse and then the wah got left on. I am just not used to working multiple pedals like this and without a band behind me any issues are glaringly obvious. Never mind, it is just for fun.
I normally record sitting down, but felt I might get some extra energy standing up.
