I put my toys away... so that I could focus on finishing a new toy. As some of you know, I design and build bespoke valve amplifiers. I've been almost finishing this one for a couple of months. I finally got it all together this morning. So, naturally, I had to test it. 😁
The backing track came first, just improvising some finger-picked Am to G to F sus2 chords. Then, when I cranked the gain on the amp, I found a lead tone that I've fallen in love with. So I simply HAD to improv a line over the top. It's rough as **** coz I couldn't remember what I'd played as the backing track only minutes earlier! 😁
Not an SM57, but almost. It's a pair of vintage Studer Revox M3500 mics.
