The WFR&BE was my first band from the early 80s. Back then we made cassettes. I was in the navy and I used to sit in the bathroom and play guitar so as not to disturb people sleeping in the berthing compartment. People would toss change in my hat so my first recordings were called Serenading the Pissers. They weren't really blues because I hadn't figured out how to do it yet, I just hoped to do blues at some point. I still feel very uncomfortable because with the blues comes some expectations that I don't feel I can meet. This was just some fiddling around for about an hour and a half. I have been accused of producing (unintentionally) muppety vocals. Well, I am sure these (intentionally) are the most muppety ever. Where is the hammer of QC? I don't know about the playing, but I got some pretty clean sounds. I have been trying to get a bass sound I could be happy with forever. That is what I consider the success of this recording. Bass I can live with.

Sorry that your Fosdink guitar experience wasn't all you hoped for Will. I expect you stumbled onto a knock off. My guitars really are great once they are set up correctly, frets dressed, and pickups swapped out.

No that was not Booker T. Fosdink on Tone-wheel organ. He passed (gas) back in the 60s. That was our own adorable Billfred E. Preston.

I checked Musicians Friend and Guitar Center...neither carry a Fosdink guitar model. Is there no justice?!! How does a struggling player obtain one?

The drumlessness is cool in a "Tribute To Elmore"sort of way. Personally, I think some blues in the future will have drums, but we'll see. Goofiness aside, there's some really nice playing going on, and dig those fancy toys! The rambling at the end is great...and at least we'll have chickens!

That sounds like the blues played with a Brit kinda vibe.
Good enough for me.
Basically, a sound check for new micing rigs. Squire P bass through a Boss CS-3 plugged into an Ampeg Rocket Bass amp miced with a CAD KM212 hanging front center. Super modified Squire Tele stereo miced through a MarshEnder (Solid state Marshall Lead 12 and 18 watt Fender Super Champ) using two Sennheiser E609s, through a 13 pedal board. Pedals from Boss, Danelectro, Ibanez, DOD, Ross, and Dunlop. Korg Triton plays the tone-wheel organ. One set of ears.
