Re-recording Rivermaya’s “Gravity”

Here’s a fun project I just finished. “Gravity” is from the 1st RiverMaya record which started out as a riff and a set of lyrics that I wrote and it ended up as one of 2 songs that was borne out of a group collaboration.

This video was shot with a GoPro as I recorded the parts. Here’s the list of gear used:

  • 2005 Gibson Les Paul Special double cutaway, stock, Curt Mangan Signature Strings
  • MIM Fender 60th Anniversary Telecaster, DiMarzio Area T pickups, Curt Mangan Signature Strings
  • Warwick Thumb Bolt 5 string bass
  • Avid Eleven Rack, Pro Tools, BFD2 drums, Presonus MP20 mic pre, Warm Audio WA76 compressor, ribbon mic

Enjoy!

DiMarzio Illuminators Crunch demo on a 7-string Epiphone Flying V

Here’s a demo of the DiMarzio Illuminator 7 pickups installed on my 7-string Epiphone Flying V strung with Curt Mangan Fusion Matched Signature Strings. In this video, I play with crunch tone to showcase another aspect of these Illuminators. You’ll hear the amazing clarity of these pickups in both humbucker and coil split modes.

Gibson Les Paul Doublecut P90 jam

Just installed a fresh set of my Curt Mangan signature strings on this 2005 Gibson Les Paul Special Doublecut with stock P90 pickups. In this video I jam to a tune inside my head (haha) and explore the tones of a P90-equipped guitar, watch how I tailor my licks in reaction to the tones of the different pickup combinations.

Afternoon pedalboarding

Spent this afternoon reconfiguring the big board. Added an Electro Harmonix Freeze pedal and replaced the TC Spark Booster with my Boss Dual Overdrive SD-2. I’ll be using this current setup with my custom Starr ODS-HRM head, which is a clone of a Dumble amp. Here’s a quick video of me running the current setup through its paces. Shot with a Canon EOS-M camera using the onboard mic.

Enjoy!
