Thanks for the compliment on the tone.
It’s my go to tone for everything ha ha
Mitch, your go-to tone...
Can we not encourage you to plug a good amp into a computer?
I guess that most of your amps have a direct output and/or a recording-attenuated output that sounds excellent.
Now I'm not complaining - just thinking about a world where we hear you with more meaty goodness.

Here’s a good oldie.

Mitch

Humble Pie: "I don't need no doctor". :)

You can hear Frampton's voice in the background vox's, and if I'm correct, that sounds like him soloing in the same style as on Frampton Comes Alive.

Who was the singer, is that Steve Marriot?



Anyway, the glory days of being in a great band without the record companies and MTV commercialism.

Most definitely Steve Marriott

should be an easy one I think:

Bah! I recognized the familiarity once I figured out the beat. It's like a slow shuffle or something. You're playing the D chord wrong though, and your metronome is off, so it might be difficult. Anyway can't figure the song or the band.

... ZZ Top :hmm: ...

BINGO! "Jesus Just Left Chicago"! :yesway:

To play the D chord correctly, keep your first finger on the open A, and just toggle the 2nd & 3rd fingers on/off:

Nite troller.
Well burn my Yankee boots!!
:D Nah, I wasn't trolling, looks like we're dealing with 3 different tunings here, which I didn't realize.

Too many words for a simple point:

-The original song is in G (C/G).
-RCM 800 played it tuned 1/2 step down.
-The guitar I grabbed happened to be tuned a whole step down (to D).
-Just going by ear the song sounded natural to me in A, so I posted the chord as it would be in A. (In my world, D/A is far more common than C/G.)

However, even tuned down 1/2 step, RCM 800's clip sounds like he's just playing a straight open A and D in his tuning.

The chord I posted is technically correct, if it were played in A. I'll edit my post so it doesn't confuse anyone.
