The song features a bunch of different guitars. I based it around my Harley Benton RB – 612 CS. A 12 strings electric guitar that I bought over a year ago. In the first place, I wanted to use that song to demo that 12 strings guitar. But, as creation got along things went differently than expected. I was fooling around the chord progression of the first part since years. I like it, but I didn’t know what to do with it. I even included it in a song that I scrapped long ago. When I started to record that [More]
Funk That Map is the song I used in the demo of the Airline Map from Eastwood Guitars. Well, in the video review I improvise over the background sequence. It’s not the same version as this one. In the video review, I used only an extract of the song (the A part) I improvised on to demonstrate the guitar possibilities. That is the full studio version of Funk That Map. I used two different guitars to record it. I performed the solo part with the Airline Map from Eastwood Guitars. I played the two rhythm parts with a Stratocaster guitar [More]
The song is a medium shuffle at 120 BPM. I wrote it somewhere around 1991. I don’t remember exactly, but it’s not that important. I performed it live with the French trio I formed in the late 90. I played the main part with the Airline Map from Eastwood Guitars. I like that guitar pretty much, especially for that type of music where I require a distorted sound, but without being too much rock ‘n roll. A Stratocaster would’ve been to treble. The hollow body of the Airline Map gives that mellow sound I like and need to perform fusion [More]
I wrote that song in 1991. I played it for a long time with my French trio. It was quite a blast to play to live because the song got a lot of energies. Except the middle part in 7/4, it is pretty straightforward 4/4. There are three different part in the song. The first one is a rhythm and blues groove inspired by a Brecker Brothers song called   “If you Wanna boogie.” The second part is a basic four power chords rock ‘n roll’ suite. Finally, the third part is a 7/4 pattern. I performed it using my custom-made [More]
This video is part of the review I made about the Delta six Eastwood guitars. If you want, you can listen to the entire review and check out the post following this link. It’s a simple two chords cha-cha, in a Carlos Santana style. I like playing that way, when I got back from Canada, fellow Frenchman musicians nicknamed me: Carlos Canada… In this one, I use a soul food stompbox from EHX, and later on in the solo I’m adding a WMD Super Fatman effect. I set the soul food really low, to not get any distortion. I just [More]
