I wrote this song for my band named Aloes. The title is an untranslatable French joke. It’s a play on words with the movie East of Eden. I recorded that song you bring two custom Stratocasters I made with an entirely different electronic wiring. The main guitar I used to play the lead features three hot rail humbucker pickups from Belcat. Even if the sound is clean, there are a bunch of effect on it. I plugged it into a Micro Synth stompbox from EHX, a compressor, Cathedral reverb ( room setting), detune (PS-6 from Boss), and a bit of [More]
As you can tell by the title, I’m a Deep Purple fan. The song has nothing to do with the Mega Hit, Highway Star. I just named it like that because the song is extremely fast, and as you can guess, is performed on Stratocaster guitars. The lineup used in the song is quite simple.

I kept the intro phrase I imported from the modern player’s video. I was too lazy to record it again, and I liked the way it sound with that Modern Player Stratocaster. Besides the intro, the song is entirely performed using my latest custom Stratocaster featuring Hot Rail Alnico Humbucker Pickups from [More]
