I went through a lot of trouble trying to get my mic set up and get my levels right, I kept having a lot of dumb issues, but finally I got everything sounding how I wanted it to. Spent a bit of time editing the audio. Sent the video to my laptop from my phone and clicked on it to see how it went and I liked the audio from my iPhone better somehow. So that’s what this is, just the raw audio from my phone. Maybe it just suits this particular song, or maybe I need new headphones.

Anyway, this song is a lot of fun to play, I urge you all to give it a try.


Great job @pau1rose! Timing, tone, ghost/muted notes and all!! Supurb!


That was awesome! Great job all around @pau1rose.

You got me playing this last night, it is fun.
Time to record it as well.


Really good job on this @pau1rose ! I haven’t tried this one yet, but I should as I love the song. The phone recording does give a bit of a muted bass tone. It does suit it well for this particular song . You might get a similar sort of tone by using foam next to the bridge.

Adam Neely had a good video recently talking about this song and I think 12 tone followed up on that.

Awesome Job. Killer tone and timing. :beers:

Here’s my take on James Brown. I Feel Good. Love this song. So busy lately. Helping my brother do my restroom remodel, ect…
Hope you enjoy. Not Perfect . Gave it go at it.:+1::call_me_hand:


Every time I start to wonder where the next @BigAl cover is, it appears like magic later in the day!
Well done as always Al!
I like the tight tight tone on the MM.

Nicely done. And spooky that I just finished this lesson not long ago today XD

Thanks @John_E & @Koldunya
Just staying busy. It been tough couple of months. :v:&:heart:

I started this song but diverted to learn the sax part then got distracted by Lynyrd Skynyrd. It’s on my list to bang out soon.

I’ve been doing some Iron Maiden, Toto and Amy Winehouse tunes and others. Been to lazy to record myself.

Still work in progress. But i’ll let you know. Steve Harris has some awesome chops with his 1/16 notes. :joy::rofl::wink:

Of all the saxes, I like and am least comfortable with alto, but what the hell…
Clean P tone ~50%, Les Claypool EMG pickups…


Now there’s a color scheme you don’t see everyday! Sounded great and was pretty rad that broke you out the sax. You’re on a roll with this 50 song challenge @John_E :metal:
