Last week took me down to Hackney Road Studios again where I put some pedal steel down on some more of Kelly and Jimmy’s tunes.
I haven’t heard the results yet but I am excited to hear how it comes out cos Steve put my pedal steel through a vintage Fairchild Compressor!
Back soon with the recordings..
I have been trying to work out a solo piece for universal pedal steel and it has been slowly taking shape.
Here is a home recorded demo of it:
Recorded on Williams U12 and Yamaha G100 amp.
Last weekend took me to EQ Studios where I put some pedal steel and a bit of dobro down on a couple of tunes for Keith Munday.
Living It Up
Keith said he had a guitar instrumental in mind and might want some steel guitar on it so I’ll be hoping we might do that sometime in the future..
Last December saw my first trip to Hackney Road Studios whose empresario is pedal steel player Steve Honest.
Kelly and Jimmy were recording a country-rock EP called Leaving Home. The title track ‘Leaving Home’ is laid-back, country-rock and Two Steps Forward is more on the rock end of the spectrum.
Steve suggested I put my pedal steel (I was using my Marlen S10) through his Fender Bassman combo.
The tracks came out great, the pedal steel is quite low in the mix but its ability to cut through helps it play a useful part in the end product.
