I'm recording overdubs on songs for my upcoming album THIS IS THE ONE. Once again I'm working with Mark Williams at Suckerpunch in Bethesda. Mark co-produced my previous album Thank You Bethesda.
Here's a peek behind the scenes.
I was determined to write a "shuffle" for this record because they're so much fun to play lead guitar over (just ask Billy Gibbons). So I came up with a song called "That's When I Know" that fits the bill. We've been calling it "Thin Pie" because it's got a little bit of Thin Lizzy and Humble Pie to it. Here are two videos of attempts to nail a guitar solo in one take. In this first video, the solo gets a little wooly. Probably not a keeper. In the second video everything seemed to hold together right through to the end, and I even pay a brief tribute to Mr. Gibbons in the middle, not that I'd planned on it. Check 'em out.
Close but no cigar:
I think it's a keeper!
Look for Kickstarter Launch on Wednesday Nov. 1, 2017!
