This is me, G&L ASAT Special, Katana 50
And this was the backing track from YT.
What a haunting song. Inextricably linked with watching Esai Morales in La Bamba when I was a kid. Nice playing!
Excellent! I really enjoyed your playing. Lovely tone and feel you have there.
Nicely done! Completely different note choices and phrasing than I would play, but cool because of the differences!
Thamks, post if you can =)
Thamks Togman, I think some of the feel comes from me playing behind the beat, like in the bends in the beginning I make the pitch only in the last moment, before that moment the incomplete bend sounds stressed in a lazy sort of way. Something blues players do, SRV for example, he's always doing that, especially in his harder rock tines like Voodoo Child.
I'm loving this Katana amp. This is like the 4th tune I've posted with the Clean Mode of the Kat. They all sound great to my ears and none of them sound alike.
And there's more clean tones in it, jazz, harder blues,,, Boss hit a homerun.
Very nice playing.. quite different from how I was taught to play it in terms of note selection/phrasing as others said. Sounds like some places you've swapped slides for bends and single notes for triads and such. Neat.
I will say was a bit ice picky through my headphones though, which is tough with this song.
If you recognized it as Sleepwalk, or a more interpreted Sleepwalk then good.
Tone, there's no ice picky sound coming out of my Bose, I thought I was on the edge of screetch but not quite there. I was was trying to sound,,, tropical.
The minor iv chord is a little mysterious but everything about this tune shouts out LA beaches, surfboards, youth, right before social awareness elevated the music away from the beaches.
Oh man, it is haunting,,,
I wish I could but my guitar playing ended when my left arm was crushed by a hit and run driver 2 1/2 years ago. I can play bass again, but nerve and muscle damage won't allow my hand to do guitar fingering. Darn it. Anyway, you play really well. Thanks for posting!
I really wanted to put something out there that didn't have me playing lots of chords and effects.
But a chordal version does sound fun, hmm,,, warmer tone,,,
Nice Job! Great Song as well!
Nice playin’, the ASAT sounds good to my ears. Well within the spirit of the tune, without the tremolo bridge. Had you played many more notes, I think it would have been less effective, atmospherically.
Nice!---love the phrasing and stylistic touches, as other have noted.
Jamming with a Sleepwalk backing track is a regular part of my practice/playtime, it's fun and good for improv.
My surfy band covers it; we announce it...
"and now, the number one 'make-out song' of 1959... grab your partner!"
Great playing, ASAT, and a timeless tune as well. Nice phrasing and not overplayed; you hit the sweet spot for sure.
Nice one; always loved that tune.
Not a lot.. just a few mixed in.
I'm not sure I'm good enough to play the whole thing against the backing track and I've never really set up to record with a backing track. Gotta figure that out. I'm not quite at the confidence level to put something up yet for anything I'm playing. Getting there though.
I would say the version I learned was 85% single notes like yours. With just a few places where there are double stops or triads mixed in. Also the first part of the riff gets played as harmonics.
Very nice. expressive. soulful. nice roll to it. Kudos, my friend.
The minor keys are my favorite!
