Moonlight Ride is a song that will preceed Alone Under The Stars on Mike Blair’s CD. Here I’ve posted the rough backing tracks without the vocal. Final vocals need to be recorded for the tune. In this tune I’ve used a very Brad Paisley like approach. Telecaster tones feature throughout. The use of tremolo on guitar has become very popular. It has replaced the Chorus pedal as a popular treatment for the guitar to add an element of motion to the guitar sound. The rhythm guitar track was originally only a Telecaster through an compressor into the Swart. I added a second track using a P-90 equipped Paul Reed Smith McCarty. The lead is just the Telecaster into the Keeley Compressor into the Swart turned up. Pick with authority and that’s all it takes to get that Nashville sound.
