  • HC Jam #5: Halloween Edition!!!

    With Halloween nearly upon us, what backing track could be more appropriate than Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein"?!?!?

    Without further ado...

    Frankenstein backing: https://app.box.com/s/4df4fuvrno6s3e2qo11nujabd76lxgkq

    And here's my take.... I completely winged it, having the song burned into my brain since an early age, but I did have to punch in once half-way through, having completely botched a landing

    Ha! That brought a huge smile to my face. Love how that first solo gets going after you lay into the wang wheel! Great outside stuff at 1:17!! And where the keyboard solo goes to the end was over-the-top wanky awesomeness!!!



    While she's talking, I'll use my mind to think of other things. She can't stop my mind!

          I used to enjoy embarrassing "shredder" guitarists in the 80s... but of course back then my technique was fresh off 9 years of intensive study... and now, not so much

            Hehe, and almost to the minute that I got my chops up to "shred" level, everyone started listening to stupid Kurt Cobain!

            Anyway, here's mine. First take, but I did a a do-over on the keyboard solo part. The first one wasn't pretty!

              All I can say is YES!!!!! That's some of the best playing I've heard from you all around!!! Just KILLER.

              And you got the after-solo part right, starting from the ascending licks... ya b@stard! I just winged, haha

              The 6/8 part is just freakin' INSANE. <not worthy>

                Lolz, thanks man!

                My band does this song as an encore a lot so I know the ascending lick pretty well. Although I never did bother to figure out the dimished-y lick after that. I usually just turn my volume down and move my fingers while whistling inconspicuously. I think the closest I've gotten it was on that take.

                  I figured you'd played through this tune a time or two

                  I have also, but not in a looooong time.

                  And my approach to that diminished lick is "it ends on a natural VI"

                    I thought you might do "Spooky", but Frankenstein is also an outstanding choice for the Halloween edition of the jam!
