1 MrAstro 11 months ago Playing a Strat on this one because that's what the Shadow's used although on this track he might have been using a rather obscure guitar called a "Burns".Normally I like thumbpicking a Chet Atkins or Jerry Reed number but since variety is the spice of life I thought I'd play an instrumental from the other side of the Atlantic this time and with a flatpick no less - I almost forgot how! hahaHope you enjoy it!The rest of this blurb is technical stuff for those that are interested:The High and Mighty was released by the Shadows in 1964 on the Album "Dance with the Shadows". It was written by Dimitri Tiomkin and was the sound track to the film "The High and the Mighty (1954)" Starring John Wayne.On this cover I am using a Fender Deluxe Stratocaster. A Maton EM325C Acoustic, and a modified Squier J Bass with DIMarzio pickups. I am using a Vox AC30 emulation and a Fender DRRI emulation panned hard left and right respectively for the stratocaster. I have also programmed a multi-tap delay in Logic pro to emulate the vintage delay specifications and echo rate of the Meazzi Echomatic 2 and I have applied a tape echo emulation over the top of that to simulate Wow, Flutter and tape distortion (clipping).
