As a follow up from OM see my latest cover which is from RHCP’s 2006 double album called Stadium Arcadium. This one I performed on a latest Community Open Mic which for those interested I suggest also having a look to see how much live performance can be different from a prerecorded one
I used my standard setup of Boss Katana 100 into PC and played with fx in library. To get the tone I used one of the Overdrive settings together with compression to get a better sustain (Mr Frusciante plays a lot with feedback on his recordings which is something hard to achieve in bedroom environment ) plus bit of reverb, delay and lots of fiddling with EQ. I must say this is the first time I think I was quite close to original tone, wonder if that’s got something to do with a better quality guitar? Oh and neck setting on the pickup.
For the first section where two guitars are running together during live performance I used looper as many of you probably gathered by now. For studio recording I used a prerecorded riff to make sure I won’t mess it up while recording
I recorded this 2 weeks prior the event and as some of you might notice I learnt the unison bend with my first finger on a wrong fret so it sounds a bit odd, definitely pulled it off a lot better during the live performance which is unusal!
Anyway enjoy and I hope you like it, feedback is always appreciated
