Well, my fellow GMCers, I've been living a lie ... for many years I have been playing rock like a good guitarist, but every so often I would hear some Jazz playing, and feel a strange attraction. I knew that any decent metal player would think I was wierd and twisted, so I kept it hidden ... one day about 3 months ago, I couldn't stand it any more, and I had to express myself, so I wrote and recorded this song, a kind of BossaNova/Jazz piece. I felt ashamed and hid it from all of you for fear of what you all as true metal and rock fans would say ...

But today, we got a Jazz instructor, and I now feel its time to end the secrecy and expose my inner jazziness, so here it is - Remembering Amanda

smile.gif

Its a little self indulgent at 6 minutes long but I was aiming for a cross between George Benson and Carlos Santanna - hope some of you enjoy it !

This is AMAZING! Did you make/record all this by yourself? This was really, really good.
And if any metal fans think its stupid to play jazz just tell them to go fu*k themselfs cool.gif

I'm not really that into jazz, I listen alot to Coltrane though, I love him. But I have always thought jazz was cool. Atm I got so many new bands to check out so the jazz will have to wait tongue.gif

Very good Andrew!! I'm also impressed with your perfectly clean and balanced recordings, no disturbing buzz or hum. Have you got a studio or an isolated room or is it that your Line6 Pod has a good noicegate?

Hi MikeM - one great thing about the Variax Guitar is that it has Piezo pickups, so it never picks up any hum at all. When I record my strat, yes I use the Pod Noise Gate. Pluse it helps that there was little gain on the clean sounds I used here.

Great song, Andrew smile.gif Classy, really swinging quality to it - it really is hard to keep still while listening. Maybe I should consider a Variax to supplement the classic electrics, since I already have the PodXT Live. You get a great, cool sound out of that one cool.gif

And finally I got that "America" tune out of my head wink.gif
