    Default Slaves! ... A new song by the old guy drinking in his garage.

    New guitar today prompted me to want to record a song.
    Used the Jackson cheapo in 1 channel and the Dean custom V in the other. (Betcha can't guess which is which?)
    Tuned STD.
    Used the JSX in 1 channel and the TSL in the other. DSL for the sloppy solo.

    Chorus on guitars for the first time ever.
    A clean channel intro... That may be a first too!

    Great guitar tones!
    Talk to me about your chorus settings...
    Iíve been experimenting with the same idea. I donít want a totally saturated chorus sound but I like how just a little can put a nice sparkle into the tone.
    What was your approach, gear, settings etc...

    Trouble with my band is we have 2 rythm guitardists. Ha ha ha I get stuck with leads because I can do them a lot better than the other guy ha ha.

    Thanks!
    Its simple like this. I like a slow rate and just barely there, not overpowering. I generally dislike chorus because it melds tones together and generally I want guitars to stand apart and alone in a mix. But it just seemed to work in this song I guess.
    I have to say John Jolly is the guy who talked me into using a chorus pedal to begin with.
    So after buying and selling a few off, this one came along and it's great! The knobs actually do something!
    I don't use it very often at all. Now you know everything I know (which is not much) about my approach to chorus ha ha.

    Awesome! Thanks.
    I have a Strymon Mobius that I use for my modulation sounds. Itís a great pedal but like many digital pedals, there are a lot of parameters to figure out. Itís pretty straightforward but I still find myself scratching my head at times trying to figure out how to make it do what I hear in my head.

    Catchy riff. Still humming after listening, that’s a good sign!

    Jolly is the master of subtle chorus on rhythm guitars for sure.

    I keep stopping back and listening to it.

    It really is the total package. The Clean intro/outro, driving rhythm, heavy riffs but not too heavy so they will still hook in a lot of the Hard Rock into Heavy Metal listeners, and as DankStar noted it is catchy.

    Neat recording! I do like the lyrics

    Maybe you should do another one, "old guy having a spliff in his garage", the bpm will drop though

    Thanks for sharing with us bro!

    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

    That sounded totally pro. And I'm not even into this genre of music. I bet this will be even better cranked in my truck.
