My good old friend Rob came by the studio to catch up. We used to play together at school, waaay before MV. I guess you could say that he was the guy that got me into all this to start with. So you have him to blame.
I had just got the Nirvana box set, so we checked it out. Kinda interesting from a musician/fan perspective....hearing the demos and stuff. We laughed about the fact Kurt was singing to a wall on the DVD, as I used to have to sing into a lamp cos we didn't have a mike stand back then.
Anyways, we ended up jamming some of the first songs I ever wrote and Nirvana tunes like Penny Royal Tea for old times sake, and ProTools had been recording all along.... here's a clip of what was recorded:
We probably f***ed it up. Whatever. If MOBY can cover Creep with a G|B minor|C instead of a G|B f***ing MAJOR|C to 50,000 people at Glasto I think we'll get away with this one.
The clinky sound of the guitar reminds me of a funny story. My sister had a guitar before I did. It was a nylon-stringed classical which she was getting lessons on. I didn't want lessons, but my folks thought I could use that instead of getting me an electric. I really hated the way it sounded so CLEAN. So I used to play it with bottle caps and stuff to try and get a little distortion. My poor sister. That poor guitar.
Once I had saved enough cash for an electric, I needed an amp but they were waaay to expensive. I remember plugging in the electric into my dad's HIFI speakers. But that sounded CLEAN too. So I'd crank it up until the cones distorted. Man, you could SMELL the speakers frying ozone. My poor dad. You should have seen his face. I got my amp out of it though. ;>
Don't abuse your family. Unless you need some new gear.
