the hanuman blues

track: 50

recorded: 20170114

duration: 2:38

type: improv: blues guitar licks - live solo performance

"the hanuman blues" is a small portion of a long test session recorded live on the 14th of January, 2017, as part of the testing of an effects pedalboard prototype. when I say it was a "long session" - this track was extracted from take 64 :-).

so this blues gets some treatments, that most blues improvs absolutely don't get - some rather interesting patches from the pedalboard here keep this piece moving along from section to section. it's odd how something familiar (the blues) can seem so very different when you subject it to a lot of unusual guitar effects.

but I think this works pretty well, and I wanted to preserve at least one piece from a long day of improvs that were done mostly, to make sure that the pedalboard was functioning as it was supposed to.

It was - and is, and I hope that comes through in this performance.
