Recording Old School Blues with "Tahsis" Dave Quinn

If you attended our jam nights at Jack's Pub in Tofino this winter you likely heard some great vintage blues performed by David Quinn. He came by the Electric Piggyland studio last night to lay some tracks. We recorded some Blind Willy McTell, Skip James and Robert Johnson... It doesn't get much better than that. We recorded guitar and vox in the same take like the originals, no click... just the blues!

Dave will be back for a little more recording in early April and we might have some demos up here then. 

On another note, a tip of the hat to Leo Fender who passed on this day in 1991. Chester and Geoff are both Fender players for the most part, Stratocasters and Jazz basses in particular.

Our next "gig" is jam night on Monday at Jack's. Hope to see you there.
