Hi Skeesix - Thanks for leaving a comment with my last vid. You asked how I got the vocal effect - its not very clear from the vid but I'm using an old telephone ear-piece as a microphone. Inspired by Bluesbeaten Redshaw and Bol Log III. The signal is then routed via some distortion, a bit of compression and then a little reverb was added.
Glad you liked the vid and here's wishing you a wonderful 2011.
