Sunday's Setlist: Charlie Hustle & the Grifters, 8/25/13, Railroad Park, Verona, Pa.

'Like a tiger in a trance...'

I could get used to this all-electric thang.

At Hula Bar, I was forced to use my electric on songs I'd previously done acoustic. It worked out alright. This time, we planned on an all-electric night, and it worked out great. My electric had a nice sharp bite to it, reminded me a little bit of Jefferson Airplane/Moby Grape, tone-wise.

We've also been experimenting a little more with effects. Pete is working with a tremolo pedal to get the right sound for our super-extra-special all-Creedence set at "Pittsburgh Abides," the local Lebowski-fest on Sept. 13 (see details in the post above), and I've been trying out different vibrato settings during the "Stone Soup" jams. Last time I used the heavy end for a watery tone; this time I tried the opposite end, a very long vibrato that lends a spacey tone to things that I really dug. Hope you will too!
