’71

I’ve just finished mixing this song. Mike brought this tune in and I knew it would be fun. This is just a good old twang fest. On this tune the Telecaster through the Swart Atomic Space Tone amp is pitted against a Fralin Blues Special equiped Stratocaster into the Fuchs TDS. The open room sounds were recorded in a local tavern one night with the father-in-law of composer in tow. Fortunately, we were requested to turn off the recorder by one of the employees of said establishment only after we captured enough sound for this little intro. I played if for Mike and I recorded a bit of tuning for it. Mike added some band chatter and we where off to the races. The only pedal used on this recording is a Keeley Compressor.
