Greetings from across the pond! Well...here is my eagerly awaited entry into the Möterhead canon. It was recorded in Garageband using my "Sympatico" cbg, so named as it utilizes sympathetic strings which you can hear buzzing under the melody. Please let me know if the sound levels are ok (if not, I will remix AGAIN and resubmit). I hope I did it justice. I would like to dedicate this entry in loving memory of my dear parents, Ingrid Schrader Lowman and Henry H. Lowman, Jr., to whom I owe a greater debt than you will ever know. CHEERS!
here's one if you need some filler, ian. acoustic version played on my lazarus guitar and a 3 string fretless.
wont be too dissapointed if it hits the cutting room floor tho :)
Just posted my version of GOD SAVE THE QUEEN this will be on the motorhead tribute album but as its our queens diamond jubilee celebration today its the motorhead thumbs up to her majesty
Here's my cover of Motorhead's "God was never on your side". These are the 2 instruments of torture that I played to record it.
The Cohiba is my #1 "go to" CBG, a 4 stringer and I played it through a Trace Elliot "Brat" amp with the gain all the way up. No other effects, it's an amazing amp.
The Bass CBG is made out of a Wissotzky Tea Box played through a small Trace Elliot bass amp. It's a 3 stringer tuned E-A-D.
Thanks for letting me be a part of this insanity !!!
Take care, Ed
