I have a rack for the acoustic guitar that lets me augment my solo sound and use effects like echo on the voice plus harmony. I also do some split signal work to the guitar where I can have a clean sound mixed with some efx. Sunrise shows off some of all that. I call the rig “the band thing in a box”. Of note here is the use of a BOSS looper for the nature sounds, The VL4 Digitech harmony unit and the Gibson J160 where I have an undersaddle pick up as well as the neck pick up P 100 installed. Clean sound is from the undersaddle mic and the P100 goes through the on board (or on box) effects loops. This song channels Pink Floyd a bit (Echoes) and sounds a lot bigger than just one guitar – I think anyway. The Whiners used to support an Environment Day initiative in our local hood and this clip goes back a few years. Basically the band and friends provided a music soundtrack to the activities of the day. We used to try out stuff as well given we had a very transitory audience. Sometimes Whiners band mate, David Green arrives during the start up of the song – just so you know what that’s all about and I used to bill myself as KEITH with the all caps just to be stupid….

As previously reported, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (11:35 a.m. Monday-Friday on NBC, KFOR-4 in Oklahoma City) devoted this past week to celebrating the work of one of music’s most influential rock bands, Pink Floyd.
My excellent colleague George Lang has been making these performances his Video of the Day over at his Staticblog. And yes, they are worth being singled out. It’s amazing how each of the artists – The Shins, Foo Fighters, MGMT, Dierks Bentley and Pearl Jam – brought their own vibe and sound to these familiar songs while paying tribute to Pink Floyd’s impressive rock ‘n’ roll legacy.
Pink Floyd is one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands of all time. Despite having ceased recording and touring, the band continues to inspire new generations of listeners with such genre-defining albums as “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “The Wall” and “Wish You Were Here.”
The weeklong musical celebration coincided with Pink Floyd’s sweeping “Why Pink Floyd?” campaign with EMI. Released Tuesday, the campaign includes the release of the band’s 14 remastered studio albums, a boxed 16-CD “Discovery” collection of the albums and two expanded editions of “The Dark Side of the Moon,” including a 6-disc boxed set with extensive previously unreleased audio and video content. On Nov. 8, “Wish You Were Here” will also be released in two expanded editions, as well as a new collection, “A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink Floyd.” The campaign will continue with the Feb. 28 release of “The Wall” in two expanded editions.
I’m leading off here with Dierks Bentley’s pleasingly countrified version of “Wish You Were Here” from Pink Floyd’s album of the same name because Bentley will be headlining the Zoo Amphitheatre’s Family Jam Oct. 14 to close the outdoor venue’s 75th season. I’m scheduled to talk to Dierks, who has a new album coming out soon, in the next week. For more information, go to www.zooamp.com.
But all these Pink Floyd tributes are certainly worth checking out.
