Default Jake E. Lee's 'Bark at the Moon'

Hey all,

At a request over on elevenrackpresets.com, I've tried my hand at making a Jake E. Lee "Bark at the Moon' rig. I named the rig 'Jake E. Lee', and you can download it at this link...

http://www.elevenrackpresets.com/Details/387.html

I started off looking for a backing track off of the internet, and I found one that I'm guessing is from a Guitar Hero game, cause it sounds like the real deal but with the guitars removed (except for the rhythm guitars that are under the solos).

I always really dug this tune, but for as long as I've been playing, I've never learned to play it.....soooooo.....I spent about 30 minutes giving myself a crash course playing the song on my ipod over and over, working out the chord changes. When I felt semi-comfortable with the structure of it, I laid down the rhythm guitars straight down in one take. I then put the solos down (turning on the JRC distortion and flanger), just doing my interpretation on what Jake was playing. So they are not note-for-note, but I hope I got the feel right!

And right when the solo is ending at about 2:46, you can hear the backing track rhythm guitar end and where mine picks up right after it, so that point can give you a good comparison as to how close (or far away) the rig sounds to the real deal.

So keep in mind, that I did this whole thing in about an hour, so there are mistakes and rough spots, but this was all intended to give an example of the rig....not showcase my lack of skills , so please...be kind

I hope I didn't waste your time too much, but I DID have fun doing it!

And yes....I DID notice that after I bounced the track down, the solo is too friggin LOUD! OOPS....Sorry fer that

edit: I just listened to the soundclip, and I am not happy with the way it sound thru my computer's speakers, cause it sounded a TON better thru my M-Audio BX5a's! I may have recorded it a little too hot and it's peaking too much

You can check out the soundclip here...http://soundcloud.com/mikefont/bark-at-the-moon

If you want the backing track, you can find it here...http://www.guitarbackingtrack.com/pl...on_%283%29.htm


Hope ya like it
Mike

Oh yeah, for those of you who are interested, I used the SLO-100 Drive amp with the Celestion 30's cab, Dyn 7 mic on axis. I set the flanger with a really slow sweep for the solo (I wasn't sure if Jake used a phaser or flanger, but it has that flanger sound...but I could be off there)...and a little reverb and the EQ pedal on.

Sounds Good! Mikefont. Wow! just 30 minutes, it will take me to do that whole day or more. For me, loud is always better. Awesome

Thanks bros! For something that I rushed thru to get finished up, I really appreciate that. It was fun, and I think I have a new cover tune that I'm gonna unleash at our next band practice

You guys ROCK!

I think you did a great job of nailing Jakes blazing tone. Love the Soldano model

I agree. It was also something like a 4 day project

I will admit that I love The Last Time beyond any sane reason.
