Up Above my Head
« on: April 14, 2015, 10:43:40 PM »
Here finally is a rough mix from our recent recording session.  We did ten tracks in one day plus an evening session for the horns.  A bit rushed, but not a bad result.

Couldn't be happier with the amp I used - my little Session Blues Baby.  The guitar is my Les Paul.

I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?

Very nice indeed. Whole track hangs together nicely and the tone in the solo is great. Even the band photo has a decent touch of class to it!
I like to spell peddant with two Ds. That always annoys them.

Thanks very much Daniel!

I was aiming for the feel of the Sister Rosetta Tharp version in the solo.  Her version runs rings aroung mine, but I was happy with the tone on the recording. :)

Also thanks for the compliment about the photo!  Mrs DJ took it.  Her website is here - www.irenejutton.com

Sounds fabulous David. And of course, congratulations to Irene for yet another great photo. ;)

If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.
