It felt good to finally finish ‘Rise and Fall‘ and release it into the world, but there’s no rest for the wicked!
Today I spent several hours re-recording guitar parts for another instrumental called ‘Streetlights’. I’m finally using my Roland GR-55 Guitar Synth to make a really cool clean guitar tone that incorporates a string section, a pan flute, and a model of a Fender Strat into a Roland Jazz Chorus amplifier. Another guitar part was recorded using my Line 6 Helix.
I’ve always been a technology guy, and there are so many cool products available to help guitar players create unique and varied tones. There are purists who think guitar modelers are the devil, but I don’t think it matters what you use to make your music…what matters is that you ARE making music.
