The City (Recording Video)

I recorded this song in a few hours and kept the cameras rolling.

I sifted through the footage and found which parts of each take I used and stitched together this video. Click this to see the individual angles, too.

I have guitar courses on my site, and if you join the Everything Club you get all of them. As an Everything Club exclusive I’ll be uploading a behind-the-scenes video of me tracking this song. You’ll see me come up with the parts in real time, mess them up, and get them right. One of the most important things to happen to me in college was getting to watch sessions with pro players tracking a song and coming up with parts on the spot, so I wanted to offer that to all of the people who don’t have a chance to intern in a Nashville studio.

Rhythm Guitar #1 (Tele Thinline):

In the 2nd verse I played a thing that didn’t really fit so I muted it. That’s why my hands are moving and you don’t hear anything.

Rhythm Guitar #2 (Esquire):

______

Acoustic Guitar:

______

Pedal Steel:

Same as Rhythm Guitar #1, a couple of my fills didn’t fit so I muted them. If you see me play and don’t hear anything, this is why.
