Fun with Marshall Plexi Lead at Christmas

Recommended Posts

Last week on Tuesday I found out we'd be playing Joy to the World on the weekend (which ended up turning out really well).

 

So to practice and try out a few different amps and tones, I decided to record the song in Mixcraft and have my 10 year old daughter sing lead, and since my brother is staying with us while in town for Christmas, I asked him to sing harmony.

 

Thanks to Palico for the suggestion to use the Marshall Super Lead with a T-75 cab, as it turned out to be a perfect combo for the tone I was looking for. The band had fun playing it this weekend, and I had fun recording it at home with my daughter and brother, so I thought I'd share:

This is my favorite tone so far that I've been able to get with the Marshall models on the HD500X. It's just the amp using cranked mids with a screamer in front of it and plate reverb at 30%. The right channel guitar does have analog chorus added, but that's it. I also used the bass octaver and the flip top model for the bass part.

Your daughter must think you're the coolest dad on earth. :)

I made her a CD with this mix on it, so I hope she holds on to it and remembers it when she's older.

ha ha funny though, people always talk about unique sound and bands, yours is most original for 50 years, Simon Cowell would love it too

Thanks. I can't take credit for the arrangement, though. It's basically a cover from an album called Jingle Jam (although I'm guessing that the girl on the original is in her 20's instead of being 10 :)
