Had to do this one for two reasons:

1) Concerning the thread in The Crapper about Neil Young's music sucking.
2) Needed an excuse to try out the humbucker on my new Fender Fat Strat (that's me glomming up the left speaker).

As usual, I had the guitars done in no time and have made numerous takes/changes to the vocals to do the tune some justice. Maybe someone else might like to take a stab and singing it, lemme know before I toss the individual mix tracks.

I hope you all enjoy this and remember that Neil Young does not suck and makes some seriusly rocking music. I hope I did him justice.

Cheers...

Nice on the guitars there stingx ! Great tone ! Whos singin ? is that you ???

My opinion Neil Young was an excellent song writer .... Not always the best guitar player but excellent song writer ... Hell that goes for lotta players lol .... look at page and hendrix ... they were sloppy at times but they were also excellent song writers . Some of all of these players has played a part in my learning and my playing ! Thanks to all the guys before us .... What an inspiration each and everyone were !

Thank you linda and zeppy.

Yeah, zeppy, unfortunately I had to sing due to no one else around to do so :lol:

Check this out, and this is no bullshit...I had 2 wisdom teeth extracted and two root tips removed at 10am this morning. I figured my vocals aren't so good anyway so I did several takes with and without the gauss in my mouth (for the bleeding - something about you aren't supposed to swallow *shrug*). I kept the one with the gauss and to top the whole thing off, I am on my second percacet!!! I should play like this all the time, I found my happy place!! :lol:

FYI

A friend stopped by and helped me figure out a chain of effects to use WHILE recording vocals which helps compress, limit, and enhance. I am much happier with the results and learned a valueable lesson from him.
