I hate winter in Sweden. It’s too cold, too dark and too long. It depresses me and has been the inspiration for many songs that I’ve written and recorded over the years. Here’s one called Dark Days from about 2013. You may be surprised that there is not a single synth, piano or keyboard on this track. Woody singing as you can probably tell, plus playing guitar and bass. Yes, I’m a bit apprehensive about this upload and anxious to hear your feedback… there are more tracks where this came from 🙂
This was also a perfect opportunity to prepare for my upcoming demo of Native Instruments Guitar Rig Player, part of the Komplete 11 Players software bundle. I loaded the old session into Reaper and amazingly it still worked. I then used Guitar Rig VST free version for the amp simulation on all the guitar tracks.
