This is me doing an improvisation over the chords to the verse section of Dani California by the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are probably one of my biggest influences as a guitarist. Who knows, maybe one day I'll be able to jam like Frusciante.
This was actually just supposed to be warm up for another tune I was going to do, it was just to test out lighting and warm up. But I gave up on the other song, so I've just uploaded this for now. I know it's not great, but it's just a little fun. I'm not going over board on bends in this vid because the guitar is a Fender Squire, so naturally it don't stay in tune.
I recorded this with my Micro Br. The chords direct in, but for the improvisation I ran a Vox 847 wah pedal, Boss CS3 compressor and a GE7 equalizer through it first. The amp was my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, but technically you don't hear any of that apart from when I'm messing around at the very end.
Let me know what you think. If you like it, make sure you subscribe because I'll be doing a lot more vids when I get hold of my Fender American Deluxe Ash Strat later this week.
Sorry about the ending. I tried to guess where my chords track ended, and failed, twice. But ah well.
Check out my personal profile for all my jams.
And have a look at my funk band!
