On June 11, 2017 I will be playing stick on the street corners.
I am using a Peavey Nano Zyphr with battery power.
Kind of a stripped down basic stick performance.
Hope to see you there.
As usual I was the opener. I used an EHX 720 2 channel looper pedal. When I played “I’m A Man” I decided to loop a kind of ambient chord like Robert Fripps looping method from the late 70’s, in other words it was just a loop with a series of swelling notes that are not set to a fixed time meter.
Once I created the loop, I proceeded to do a bluesy improv over the loop.
Also I brought back the loop during my solo.
Here is a short segment from that performance giving you an idea of the loop section.
I have a new addition to my pedal board for the Stick.
The original set up has a Line 6 Modulator (MM-6) & A Diamond Bass Compressor on the bass side of the stick and on the treble side a TC Electronics MojoMojo Overdrive, a Digitech RP 55 (multi effects) and a volume/expression pedal (for the RP 55).
The idea is to create some ambient style music for live performance and for on the fly composing/improv ideas when at home creating.
There is also the possibility of creating percussive rhythm grooves live for playing along with.
