Hey everybody! Check out these sweet new videos I just made with Jimmy Scott Jr on Siesta Key, FL at his studio The Dub Shack. These were both recorded on a Canon 7d and Canon t3i, audio recorded out of a Bose T1 into a Zoom H4n. I’m using a Taylor T5, Upright Bass and Shure Beta 87a into a Boomerang III Loop Station. The guitar is also routed through a Boss OC-3 Octave Pedal, a Sparkle Drive and an Analog Delay.
The first was one of my favorite Radiohead songs that I finally learned how to play a couple months ago, “Paranoid Android”. I was really inspired by some of the awesome covers of this song that are out there, including Weezer’s note-for-note cover, the reggae version by the Easy Dub All-Stars, and specifically Thom Yorke’s solo in concert version. The song is so multi-textured and epic in it’s nature it gave me a lot of room to play with all my toys (looping my voice, heavy delay on the guitar, bowing the bass, etc). Hope you enjoy this one:
I also am super excited to introduce you to one of my newest original songs, “Hipster Juliet (You Can Tell)”. If you’ve seen me live recently you’ve probably heard this one (and hopefully shaken your badonkadonk ) Big thanks again to Jimmy and Becca for putting these together!
