Little Wing played on Helix

Recommended Posts

Working up an instrumental version of Little Wing to perform for an upcoming open mic night. Thought I'd lay down a version for practice and see how it's coming along.

 

First few sections I play like the SRV version and then deviate. A lot of improv so I never play a "perfect" version, but it is what it is :)

 

Signal chain was JTV Variax Strat neck position pickup into Line 6 Helix recorded directly over USB into Ableton Live. No processing done in Ableton whatsoever.

 

I'd love to hear any feedback.

Needs a "Little more Grit" coming off the 4th PU and back to 2nd PU position for me, but nice playing none the less.  :)

Thanks for the feedback :)  I actually don't change pick up positions at any point during the song, only turn effects on/off on Helix.  Which section of the song were you referring to?

Really liked it!

 

Would have loved it had you made the guitar cry (kinda srv style) at the end of 1st impro part before your last part.

You have the talent to nail it.

just about a minute or so into the song, he go's from 2 PU position to 4th position where he plays from the 12th fret, then back to 2nd position when he cranks it at the turn around/start over ...
