My entry for August is probably Pixies’ most iconic song. I read it’ll be one of the tunes that will be learned and performed during the JG UK workshop next month. Unfortunately I’m not one of the lucky ones to attend, but I bet it’ll be much fun.
The acoustic part is both exciting and tricky to learn. It’s a bit of an unusual progression with many barre chords and I could definitely feel my muscles getting sore by the end of the song.
The little lead line on electric is a bit of a finger twister with the fast hammer on and the bouncing between the top strings. It took me a while to get that down but once you do I think it sounds wicked.
@Jeff that sounded great, everything seemed to be on point. I’m not mega familiar with the track but your guitar tone seemed very close and the acoustic sounded very good. The parts were played with great timing. The video was good as well that must have taken some effort too! Good job all round.
That sounded great, Jeff. Video production was as @DavidP says polished. I thought the addition of the close ups was great as when I watch recordings done by those way ahead of me I think it’s super helpful being able to see the playing techniques etc.
Choosing the right song is probably the most important factor in providing enjoyment and you struck gold on this
Great production, incorporating solid acoustic and electric guitar playing with excellent tone to boot.
If I was going to be really picky I’d like you doing a Frank Black impersonation or somehow boost the vocals, but I know that’s not the exercise here.
