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.
