    Presented by the students of Aaron O'Keefe: www.aaronokeefe.com

    This song was recorded on Saturday, August 28th 2010 at the Saint Claire Recording Company in Lexington, Kentucky.

    In order to get multiple camera angles I had the students record the song using a click track. Not only did using the click track help create a better video, but many professional recordings are laid down to a click track. In using this technique to record, the students now realize what is expected from a professional musician in a studio.

    Many viewers might wonder why the students aren't jumping around and delivering a great visual performance as well. Playing along with the click track requires a great deal of concentration, so that wouldn't possible for many musicians, especially a bunch of kids....in this case six students ranging in age from 12 to 14.

    To record the guitars we used the following equipment:

    Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Head
    '71 Marshall Superlead 100
    '72 Mesa Boogie Mark 1 head
    Digitech Whammy Pedal
    Dimebag Darrell Wah Wah
    Dimebag Darrell Distortion Pedal

    What we changed...

    We left out the first 96 bpm section as well as the first solo. Because the song already contains several tempo changes and a ritardando, I thought it would be best for the students to simplify the arrangement a little bit. We also changed the ending.




    We videotaped the performance using two Panasonic AG-HVX200 DVCPRO's.

    A special thanks goes out to the following people:

    Brian Anderson / Assistant Producer
    Jeff Morris / Cameraman
    Mike Walker / Guitar Tech
    Tom Allen / Photographer
    John Quinto / Photographer
    Dan Agee / Mixing Engineer
    Tim Price / Engineer
    Cailon Williams / Assistant Engineer

    And of course...the students, for all their hard work!

    WANT TO HELP WITH THE NEXT RECORDING SESSION?

    To keep the cost of these trips down as much as possible we rely on family and friends to help out. Our next recording session will be in spring of 2011
    and we'll be going to Starstruck Studios in Nashville: www.starstruckstudios.com We hope to record "Painkiller" by Judas Priest, "Bat Country" & "Gunslinger" by Avenged Sevenfold, "Bad Horsie" by Steve Vai and "Chain of Fools" by Aretha Franklin. If you're interested in donating your time, please contact me at aaronokeefe@gmail.com We currently need a drum tech, videographers, photographers and video editors. Please send me examples of your work and list the equipment you use. If you're involved in the session, your name will appear in the credits of the video, you can add the experience to your resume and I'll write you a recommendation letter. The next session will be nearly 16 hours long so we will provide meals and if you live in the Cincinnati, OH area we can provide transportation to Nashville. Because students are involved, everyone will need to submit references and I will run a background check on new volunteers.

    Thanks
