Tele-honk

By OleJazzer on February 11, 2018 3:35 pm

This is something that occurred to me as I was playing around with the telecaster I bought for a travel guitar then hotrodded. It is a cheap squire with a nice neck. I put Texas Special Pickups and to increase the mass for better sustain a Bigsby. Naturally I put locking tuners since any tremolo equals locking tuners. I recorded this in two parts. The changes and bass line I played together. Then on another track the melody on the same guitar through a Digitech Hyper phase. Telecasters are fun and can do anything from jazz to C&W. It is almost impossible to break one.

When I grow up, I want to play guitar like you.

Thanks. I was hoping someone would catch the juxtaposition of the straight ahead track with the more rarified single line event based track that appears here and there

It's really what makes the song special. It really breaks up the monotony.
