Eagle Tail Waltz

This song started off with an acoustic rhythm track. I then added a tambourine and egg shaker track and a bass track. I planned on creating an acoustic lead track for it, but it just wasn’t happening. Some songs want to be a certain way and you just have to let the music direct you. This one was telling me it needed a twangy Fender Strat sound with tremolo, so that is what I gave it. Here’s the rundown:

Rhythm Guitar:
2012 Martin DC Aura, recorded on a TASCAM DP-006 Pocketstudio using the internal mics.

Percussion:
Rhythm Tech tambourine & Jim Dunlop egg shaker, also recorded on the TASCAM DP-006 using the internal mics.

Bass:
2012 Rickenbacker 4003 played through a Zoom B3 Bass Effects / Amp Simulator using patch E0 (cto Stomp). Recorded using the TASCAM DP-006 via a line-in jack.

Lead Guitar:
2011 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster recorded via USB with a 2012 Fender Mustang III (v1) amp using my go-to custom patch based on a ’65 Twin Reverb with vintage tremolo, stereo tape delay and small hall reverb.

Mixing / mastering was done using Adobe Audition 3.0.
