Paul Bryant (solo-ish)
My friend Paul Merrell recently sent me a link to a really heavy-rock/country cross-over track called She's Country - by Jason Aldean (who coincidentally I had previously discovered via Satellite country radio stations whilst touring in the Colorado mountains a couple of years ago).
I just had to have a crack at this one. The version here isn't finished - I need to do some further mixing and production work. Actually I'd like to get Mr Merrell to do some acoustic guitar on the intro, and stick a solo in the middle section soon. Would like to re-do my vocals too if I get time.
Despite it not being finished, I'm really quite please at how this one rocks. De-tuned guitars (to C#) was a bit new to me. Possibly the first time I've ever really turned up the volume and made my recorded bass sound really growl. Thank-you Glenn Hughes....you made me soooo funky.
Credit is due to Danny Myrick and Bridgette Tatum for writing the song - thanks - I really enjoyed recording this. Apologies for the extended middle section - inspired unwittingly by what I now remember as the main riff in an old 70's Budgie song called 'Rocking Man' (so I suppose more credit is due to messrs Shelley, Bourge and Phillips - some more of my teenage heroes)
Watch out for a video too, coming soon.....how vain is that?
