Money

At Yule Rock the Park, the closing set was by Network. Here is the opening tune of our set, the Pink Floyd classic, Money. One of the tricks about this tune is that there are so many small guitar parts all layered.

The signal chain on this tune is the Fender Custom Classic -> Diamond Tremolo -> Fuchs Extreme Cream -> Tone King Metropolitan.

Vocals – Yvonne Burman
Guitar – Carl Strempler
Keys – Gary Brenner
Bass – Greg Loeppky
Sax – Chuck McClelland

Born Under a Bad Sign


Yet another cut from “Yule Rock the Park!” at the Park Theatre on December 17, 2011. This is one of my favourite Albert King songs, Born Under A Bad Sign. The noise and interference at the Park Theatre can be a bit much with single coil pickups. Listening back to this I’m thinking maybe a Suhr Silent Single Coil backplate system would be a good upgrade for my trusty Fender Custom Classic.

The signal chain is Strat -> Fuchs Extreme Cream -> Tone King Metropolitan.

Crosscut Saw

Here is a cut from “Yule Rock the Park!” at the Park Theatre on December 17, 2011. This first set, the blues set, with Bill Kirkpatrick singing. We had the great privilege of having a 3-piece horn section for this event. I don’t think I want to gig without a horn section anymore, it was so fun. The arrangement is pretty true to the Albert King version, though I probably should have used something with humbuckers in it. The first time I ever heard this tune was on Eric Clapton‘s Money and Cigarettes album so the Strat tone on this tune stuck with me.

The signal chain is Strat -> Diamond Boost-EQ -> Tone King Metropolitan. As you can see from the picture the microphone is a Shure KSM-32.
