This was one of my first computer based recordings from back in the mid to late 90’s. It was a 486 or P100 vintage computer with some demo drum programming software on it from a music magazine. I tried to recreate the Lenny drum track using the software and had to leave the computer on for a few days straight because the demo version wouldn’t save my work.
It took multiple takes, using the faithful black Squier and a Digitech GSP 2101 Studio Tube Preamp/Processor for the main guitar effect (#28), then getting my mate Ben to record the bass part for it – it took a while to get it all down.
We weren’t capturing any video back then but I posted this to YT as a picture montage in memory of SRV when I first started a YouTube channel.
I learnt the song from a TAB published in the March 1991 edition of Guitar Player Magazine, and as such it resembles the recorded version that appears on the Texas Flood album.
I can play bits of this today but couldn’t play it through note for note like I tried to do in this recording.
If you like that kind of thing – enjoy!
IF not, move on. D-)
