The Forbidden Zone - Misfits, a perfect song to make the bass growl.

Second hit of Misfits, recorded in 1978. Hope you all stay healthy.

Horror Business by Misfits, inspired by Hitchcock's Psycho.

I finally did it! Intense boredom forced me to work out the Sir Duke run.

I know it's not a big deal, but I'm a R,5,R,5 guy and this has more notes in it than I would normally play in a month. My upper frets are still in shock.

Really nice mate. I hate playing that tune 😂

It doesn't go quite how I thought it did. Jumps around in different octaves. I remember I had to read it once. I was so impressed that I pulled it off (it is easier to read things you know by ear than to read things cold). Good job.

Thank you. To be fair, I'm probably playing it wrong 😄

....and the thought of reading it cold blows my mind. I don't know how anyone could do that. Amazing.

Well. Boss RC-1 arrived. Rusty at looping...but...I plan to do more of these.

still hate looping pedals. In the absence of a band mate to join in with - I’ll persevere.

Hammer-on, pull-off, hammer-on, pull-off… Hollywood Babylon by Misfits.

Well played and filmed Chris - we've started doing this one! Great tune, think I prefer the Jam arrangement (a Jam b side as I recall).

That was nicely done @wateroftyne - what did you guys record it on?

Cheers, Al. The song was recorded just before the restrictions came in.

The drums were done at the drummer's house, the bass in my house (Handbox R-400 DI > cheap little Focusrite > Adobe Audition),  and we sent the files to the guitarist. He just has a protools set up in a small room in his house, which is where we also did all the vocals, violin & accordion. I don't think he has any clever outboard stuff, just a few nice mics and a good ear.

The video was necessitated by the restrictions - I put it together from mobile phone selfie vids, as you've probably guessed. In't technology marvellous?

As with many bands we are doing a few "lockdown" tunes.
