Shut Up

Shut Up

Liner Notes: 

It’s the 36th song finished even though it was the 10th song started. It’s been sitting collecting dust for quite a while.

The idea was to write a proggie 7/8 rocker where the drummer played with brushes. GarageBand actually has a couple of session drummers that use brushes. This is one. Fascinating, eh?

If I ever do this one again I am going to can the brushes and give the drums the appropriate level of rock.

The guitars are all my Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s and the amp is always my Vox AC15. The rhythm used a Klon KTR and a Keeley D&M Drive (just the Mick side). The lead used a Wren and Cuff Tri Pi ‘70 and the KTR.


I guess now I’ll shut up
I have nothing to say
Might have given too much
hold on one more day

Verse 1
Just stay quiet
Go on try it
just don’t buy it
no tears for me

Verse 2
Its my calling
no more stalling
its just talking
always for you

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Great guitar tone, wish I had one of those D&M drives!! It has a definite Cream/Clapton feel (particularly that main riff), and yes it’s a shame we now involuntarily roll our eyes at the very mention of his name, but there you go. Drums sound fine to my ears. Well done!
