Shredless Chicken Salad

By Jai Cafarella on May 3, 2020 1:08 pm

So, this is kinda... metal-esque... I guess...?

I started this track 3 weeks ago, but fast and accurate riffage is not exactly my specialty (lack of practice), so I put it on the back burner for a bit, because the takes I had were feeling a bit sloppy. I almost bailed on it again this week and started something else, but instead decided to restart this from scratch. I wouldn't say this version has reached my expectations, but it came together better than my first attempt, so it serves as a fairer example for potential future tweaking.

The title: I don't have the guitar chops necessary to serve up some fresh shred salad to accompany this style of track (I instead 'cheated' with a repeated melody riff), and also playing on the term/phrase 'headless chicken', we have a Shredless Chicken Salad.

Pretty legit metal, I'd say. It's even going a little prog there.
