Another Hot Rainy Night in Jersey
« on: July 07, 2009, 09:23:27 AM »
Been cleaning out my folks home in South Jersey for the last two weeks. Closing was yesterday. Had one of those thunderstorms like Stuart described one night and decided to record this in the empty living room, lath and plaster walls, wide pine board floors, tall front windows, all constructed around 1740. Laptop balanced on the fireplace mantle. Ya get good reverb from an old empty room.

Sweet!  ..another one of those seemingly simple songs that takes a bit of figuring out..I think you're on to something with those right hand index finger blips, which allows the song to roll..not as in jelly, but as in movement ..thanks for posting..Tom

Very nicely done, John. It really does have that "empty room" feel to it. And as I recall, those hot, rainy nights make the air heavy which works on the sound of the guitar, if only so subtly.

Thanks much, Tom and Stuart. And thanks to the other 19 folks who bothered to give a listen. Any criticism is welcome.

As I told you in person, Tom, figuring out the right hand for this song has changed how I play several Patton songs and I'm starting to think several other players used a similar technique. But I'm sure most of the players here on Weenie are familiar with it. I'm just a duffer finally getting around to it.
