Something a little heavier than usual using The Captain, I gave him a new lease of life by adding a fourth string and a distortion pedal, together with Roland V-Drum kit and Bass, producing a gritty but sleek sound.
The song was inspired by my brother's pride and joy, his yellow Cadillac appears in some of the photos, he uses it for shows and weddings, I might even get to drive it one day!.
Guitars - The Captain tuned b,G,D+,G+ and Epiphone SG Bass.
Drums - Roland TD-12
Marshall AS50D Amp, Boss D-1 distortion pedal, Behringer Xenyx 1202, Boss SE-70.
BIG FAT YELLOW CADILLAC
I WAS CRUISIN’, DOWN THE STREET
LOOKIN’ FOR SOMEONE TO MEET.
SAW A CHICK, PULLED UP
SHE SAID I LIKE YOUR CAR, IT’S NEAT.
IT’S MY BIG – FAT – YELLOW – CADILLAC
SAID MY BIG – FAT – YELLOW – CADILLAC
SHE GOT FINS, AND CHROME
AND I’LL TAKE MY BABY HOME
SHE SAID CAN I, TAKE A RIDE?
HER SMILE WAS BIG AND WIDE,
I SAID YEAH, I’LL TAKE YOU BACK
IN MY BIG FAT CADILLAC.
I SAID HEY, MY FRIEND
CAN WE DO THIS THING ANOTHER DAY ?
SHE SAID YEAH, I NEED A CAR,
…MY WEDDING’S ON THE FOURTH OF MAY !!
