Sometimes in JANUARY 1990

Recording: ‘Various guitar works’
One-eyed Jack’s –  P: Dude.

This section opens with a piece written by Joe Satriani, called ‘Midnight’, which requires some two-handed tapping techniques, followed by a home-overdubbed intro of ‘Paradise city’, from Guns’ first LP. At this point, I must explain what ‘home-overdubbing’ is, since a large portion of tracks from these early times are done with the use of this technique:
Home-overdubbing consists of using two small cassette recorders, one playing a previously recorded tape, the other recording both the cassette player and the additional performed live signal. (Tricky, isn’t it?).
Then, there is a suite of solos and riffs from various songs I was studying at the time.
