Willie's AAT for December

I spoke to Bob K. this afternoon/evening over the phone, and he has convinced me to post this one for you all to have a go, so let's see some of you big boys give me your best shots!

It's called "Father to Son". It's played at 75 BPM, and is mostly in F (though I have yet to master writing in keys).

Later,

This is the first shot I took at this thing, and I'll go ahead and post it because I don't know when I'll get back to some uninterrupted recording.


Roll 'em


This is a good one Willie, thanks, and I'm going to try some other ideas later.

Thanks Bernardo, it was a blast playing to this one. So many possibilities, that I got lost in it LOL

I read somewhere, you hurt your hand, is that true???

Bummer, I sure hope it's on the way to playing some great stuff again !!!

Miss your stuff man, hope it gets healed up fast. I can still hear the tune you dedicated to your Mom in my head, it's one of a kind ;)

Get well soon,

Thanks Carl, after listening to your take and hearing some simularities, I went ahead and posted what I recorded last Monday. We'll have to collaberate someday, although I guess we already have (sorta), didn't we? That was one heck of a track you put up too! Loved it, one of my favs.

Take Care,

Yeh, I guess we have in a roundabout sort of way.

Once again, your track sounded very good. I dug the heavy chords on the intro. I was thinking of going that route but the more I started foolin with effecs while Willie's track was playing I kinda noticed that it flowed really well. I didn't want to mess that up.

I'm not trying to imply that you did though, so please don't take it that way.

You were correct in saying that the track lends itself to all sorts of styles. That in itself makes it a really good AAT back IMHO.

I don't, and I hear where your coming from. The intro is the part I despise, that's why I'm going to give it another go when I get some peace around here ;)

Take care man,

Good recording, Bruce.
What did you use to get that grinding tone on the intro section? I can never tune that sort of stuff in quite right.

Hello Bill,

I thank you so much, this was a fun track to tinker with!

I like the ballads, they can be so melodic, although I experimented maybe just a tad bit much, LOL

Jam on my friend,

Forgot to tell you, all I did was set the POD on 2 and tweeked the amp to high gain, and effects to compression/echo. All through a Laney Pro Tube, which I really like.

Everything else is at detent, except volume.

I'm a sustain freak, LOL

Thanks Jim, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. That was close to acceptable, but so long that I flubbed a few times.

I hate that, LOL

Flub recovery is the key to success ;)

Flub recovery is another way to describe finesse! I figure I spend a good 20% of my efforts trying to make something unintentianal sound like I knew what the heck I was doing! LOL

Good stuff Bruce! Thanks for being a sport about the unsual length of this one! I really liked what you did in the latter half when the piano and the clean guitar are going back and forth. Your part there added a lot to it!

Once I got into it the length wasn't a factor, in fact it went by so fast I wondered what happened :) Appreciate the words, and most of all sharing the track, it wasn't work, but instead fun.

Bruce--

You rock! I love that heavy meat-grinding intro. Really appropriate. You jam, my friend. Thanks for a great take. I was thinking while I was listening how many different ideas this track lends itself too. I was thinking maybe an acoustic backing revving itself up to a Nancy Wilson-style all out strum fest, and then going back over with stuff that maybe included some wah. Oh man! I really got to get my act together and get back into the swing of things! I'm really whetting my whistle on this one!! I'll be doing some add a tracks sometime around 60 days or sooner, I'd guess.

Anyway, good to hear your jams. Maybe you could sneak a little Taylor in on your next take??

I've been waiting for the right track to feature the Taylor on. Did play a bit of rhythm on one of Bob's tracks awhile back, but nothng special. I like your ideas though, and will contribute if I can. Thanks for checking this thing out and commenting on it.
