Conductivity

I had some different plans for this week--maybe ambient and/or noise guitar...but once I started tracking, I came out with the first couple guitar bits you hear here, started ping-ponging parts off of each other, and before I knew it, there I was, deep in blues-programmer territory (bluesgrammer? bluegrammer? blueveloper?)


Drums: 64-pad jazz kit through Drum Buss (tweaked Punchy Driven preset to increase drive, crunch, and boom, and retuned the boom to D), and some M4L Humanizer on the final track.  Guitar: Epiphone Moderne into EHX LPB2ube, with one side cascaded into the other.  During tracking, I tweaked which pickup I was using for each part, and varied the level of drive, coming out with three parts on three tracks.  Bass: Epi P-J into the board, EQ-8 to roll off lows.


Sends: two convolution reverbs (Bright Beautiful Swell and high-pass auto-filter + BM7 Medium Bright ambience), and two channels of Echo...though now that I check, I see that one (Filter Flutter preset) was turned off completely.  After uploading, I reactivated it and tweaked the mix a bit, so this version has it.  The other channel of Echo was bandpass auto-filter into Echo on the Dub Syndicate preset.   

Title from a property of silver: it's the most electroconductive of all metals.

I still think you'd do well with a harmonica, silver or otherwise.

Blues/funk mind meld. Good groove.

Down and dirty blues basics sounds sweet!
