Deep Purple – Child In Time (Guitar Solo Cover)

Behold, my guitar solo cover of one of my favorite Deep Purple songs of all times. It’s been haunting me for over a decade, but I finally got to do the cover. Don’t expect too much, it’s sloppy in few places, but hey, I’m not Ritchie Blackmore 🙂

Used my custom made guitar plugged into Native Instruments Komplete 6 audio interface. The guitar is equipped with DiMarzio FRED at the bridge and PAF Pro at neck position. It’s a very versatile combination that covers a lot of ground. At the front of the VST effect chained I used Rangebastard treble booster which is modeled after Dallas Rangemaster. Amp model is LePou HyBrit (Marshall Plexi/JCM800) set on MCJ (JCM) channel. I used some EQ after the amp to scoop out the mids and slightly boost the bass to get closer to Gibson ES335 that Blackmore used on this track. There’s a little reverb added from Amplitube 3 pedal (don’t remember the exact name). At the end of the chain are Vintage Marshall G12M25 Basketwave cab impulses, one mic’d with Shure SM57 and the other with Royer R121. I blended the two to get the tone I liked.

Note that for clean part at the end I didn’t change channels or anything, just switched to the two outer coils wired in parallel. It brings down the volume just enough to clean up the sound.

Ice 9 (Satriani Cover) intro using DIY Mark IIc+ clone

Recorded with my custom shredding guitar using GLS ES-57 and Palmer PDI-09 simultaneously. MXR Classic Overdrive adds just a tiny bit more focus to the sound, both level and drive are set very low. Most of the distortion comes from the IIc+ preamp clone.

Boss BE-5: Overdrive/Distortion Test Into A Clean Amp

Overdrive/Distortion test with Boss BE-5. Plugged straight into NI Komplete 6 audio interface, running Bias Amp (Dumble Clean model) in the Reaper. BE-5 features overdrive circuit taken from Boss OS-2 standalone unit. It’s basically a distortion and overdrive in the same box with a pot that can blend the two effects. It’s a very cool idea. I tested it with drive and tone set to noon position and blend pot set to overdrive only, 50:50 blend of overdrive and distortion and distortion only.

I used my Bancika MK1 guitar with Dimarzio FRED in the bridge position.
