I've always enjoyed writing tunes in different genres but I always seem to gravitate back to either Larry Carlton/Steely Dan sort of tracks or LA pop/rock of the 80's and 90s.
This track is definitely inspired by Larry Carlton, Steely Dan and Michael McDonald.
For the gear oriented:
Guitars were a Tyler SE for rhythm and a PRS McCarty with 57/08 pickups for lead.
Recorded through a Kemper with profiles from Michael Britt. Wolly Coats Spanky for clean and Dumble for the OD.
In most cases, Soundcloud uses a bandwidth of only 128 kbps. As a result, what you hear isn't free of artefacts, especially the high end. For critical listening and also product comparison, please keep that in mind. Users who setup a comparison should use linear wave files and supply dropbox links.
