Darker Shade of Blue (Electric version)

May 31, 2010 2:01 PM

Amped up version of a song I posted a few days ago. Gnarly guitars, Hammond organ, sweet harmonies, in a Television / Big Star / Matthew Sweet frame of mind.

Rummaging thru some old demos, I found an acoustic version of this which I posted a few days ago.

This was very much not how it was written though: the original was an electric version with a bunch of guitar solos. I couldn't track down the original demo, so I thought I'd re-record it. Turned out pretty well -- guitars by Amplitube and Guitar Rig -- although my singing hasn't improved much... if at all.

Is three guitar solos too many? Probably, but they were all so different I decided to keep 'em all. First one is sort of Richard Lloyd/Tom Verlaine... second is, I dunno, me I guess, third is pretty much everything I know about blues crammed into eight bars with a crowbar.

There can never be too many guitar solos! :D

Love the crisp guitars (and the little deedlee-doo lick) in this version. The singing sounds more confident to me, too.
