This was recorded last night straight from the sound desk. It's not a particularly great recording and there are definitely rough edges to the performance, but I was still pretty stoked with how it came out. I'm on electric, but the set had an unplugged feel. There was a percussionist instead of a drummer, for example. That's me playing the melody line... ish. I was playing my Tele into my Marshall 1974x, pretty clean, with an MXR Carbon Copy set pretty subtle.

Don't mind the words, they aren't catching. :mrgreen:

Jesus was way closer to being black than the ginger bearded fella most christians follow! We're all black on the inside anyway....

You just described my belief system.

I like that. Killer feel with the mixed vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, and the bongos (or whatever percussion instrument that was). Very nice to listen to.

Whenever I think of "Sunday music" this it what springs to mind:

Ha! That's a pretty amazing thing to spring to mind. :-)

One of the enduring challenges of playing music like this with a team of volunteers is trying to get people past showing off their mad chops and to play for the song (I suppose that's a challenge in all kinds of music... except maybe shred). ;-) I've played with more than a few shredders who wouldn't stop and drummers who break out double kick runs in songs not much more uptempo than this one.

Thanks man, (and everyone else too).

The percussionist was playing a bongo drum, and he also took the bass drum from the main kit and used that.

Slow songs are the best ones for shredding. And being able to shred doesn't preclude playing for the song :)

This might come across wrong but.. you know with all the trouble you have gone to ISO the perfect amp, pedals, guitar...maybe its just my computer speakers but I wouldn't be able to pick out what type or price gear you are using. I am not meaning that to come across in the wrong way I find that in alot of recordings. What other styles of songs do you guys play?
