Stealing Innocence

Story Behind The Song

It's silly, really. Pride. I wanted to create a song that would be difficult for my buddy, who is a much more accomplished guitarist than I, to play. Especially since he likes to play perfect (1 pass) takes. It kind of spun out of control to almost 5 minutes... Try that in 1 take, dude. =)

Song Description

Acoustic was: Martin DSM through a Rode NT-1 mic plugged into a Europower PMP 2000 Mixer. Lead Guitar was: 80's Charvel 475 through an MT-2 Metalzone pedal, 1970's Thomas Organ Cry Baby Wah pedal plugged into a Trainwreck Attenuator to squeeze the sound down before it hits my 80's Peavey VTM 120 Tube head and mic'd with the Rode NT-1 coming from my 80's "Wall of Sound" Peavey 4-12 cabinet, then in through the mic with the mixer setup going to the Roland VS-890 DAW. Drums were: Zoom RT-223 sequencer. I'd like to thank the Academy...

Wow what an outstanding musical delivery. LOVE IT very gripping!! cheers!!!

Good sounds, nice playing

some good gtr licks.... solid groove

i like this style of writing - acoustic guitar jamming the song a long - it has a lot of Classic Progish qualities which I love. As a guitar player I was drawn to its instrumental storytelling in my mind.
