It's Been A While.. I took the Voodoo Highway

Hey all,

I've been gone a while and not playing very much, but A couple weeks ago, I got a short break from school and the wife let me have a little time... ;)

Me and Myles Loud know each other thru other forums on line.

Background:
I recorded this tune for a Jake E Lee Tribute that I took part in back in 2000-2001 time frame. I used an old acoustic for the slide (this is the tune that I learned basic slide playing for), but was never happy with the original singer's performance.

Fast-Forward 3 years:
I bought my Resonator in Feb 2004 and found out Mr. Myles Loud was part of the Tribute also. I wanted to re-record the song, but with a "different" singer (aka, one who can sing it in the song's original key and not require me to tune down)

Myles and I talked about it last year, doing it just for ourselves and leaving the Tribute project the way it was, so as not to piss-off the original singer... we finally hooked up on it 2 weeks ago.

So Myles and I jumped on the Virtual Back porch, let it rip and had Mr Tomas Carlstrom behind the console for us twisting the knobs.

Hope you like it.

Bow: Resonator and Tamborine (Texas)
Myles Loud: Vox and Harp (Georgia)
Tomas Carlstrom: Mix/Engineering (Sweden)

(Isn't the internet a great thing?)

I though you all might dig it.

Enjoy and Comments Welcome

sounds nice bow! I think the tamborine is really cool in that song. Also think the singing sounds better the way you guys recorded it. When you tune down the song just doesnt sound the same.
