Quick Track of the Week attempt. I tried to come up with a non-standard bluesy progression. No I-IV-V in here. Whether or not it works, I’ll leave to the listener. Recording details: Rhythm guitar - tele bridge into Vinny + Jensen, no effects Lead guitar - tele middle into Vinny + Jensen, no effects Your browser does not support the audio element. »
