Stoned Guitars... mmm pretty self-explanatory, right?!
I just love to roll a fat one, grab my guitar, hit record and noodle with it!
It's such a pleasure to get down ideas without any direction nor pressure.
This mindset - or lack of - can give unexpectedly great results.
I play for few minutes - though sometimes I trip and fall in a wormhole!? - then I go through the takes, isolate the best parts and have fun with 'em. This means I mix, chop, process and sample them, turn them into other things, build virtual instruments with them...
This specific collection of freaky chops and loops, started taking place right after I filmed the IGTV clip on "Tracking guitars with room mikes" and has developed over the following days. I used the same guitar, the same microphone setup and the same processing of that recording session - click here to watch it.
I didn't have anything specific in mind - drain bramage - I just fired a percussive loop at 115 BMP and went with the flow. Did a couple of takes, mainly in the keys of D and A but seriously... they are stoned guitars, I wouldn't be too fussy about the technicalities!

But beware, it's sticky!?
