Warm Rain

Long lazy summer days give way to evening thunder showers on the prairies where I live. One such day I laid down this rhythm track with my Telecaster through my Swart AST. The rich tremolo effect on this amp inspired me. I left the track for several weeks while I prepared for another gig. I had forgotten all about the track. This week I finally fired up my computer again and there in the last opened list was this track. I was practicing slide late at night when I thought it might be fun to run the Love Pedal Eternity Drive (overdrive) into my Maxon Auto Wah and try playing slide through it. After a bit of tweaking I arrived at this slide sound. The wah gives it a kind of vocal quality. The Love Pedal is a bit different than other overdrives. Level and Drive work much like any other overdrive pedal. Glass is like a treble booster. For this track I used the settings shown on the pedal here. I used my Danelectro playing the neck pickup for an extra thick sound. Delay was added in Sonar. Languid and lazy, this track is meant to wash over you like a warm rain.
