Brand New Video! “Evil”

As we close in on the release of new Preacher Boy material, we’re startin’ to look at specific songs, performances, arrangements, etc. This one’s in the running for one of the releases, and this is some behind-the-scenes footage of the recording. It look place in a beautiful old lodge nestled way up in the Santa Cruz Mountains … most mojo-laden, to say the least…

Anyhow, the song is an open-tuning, slidge guitar re-imagining of a piece learned from a Mance Lipscomb recording. His version was called “Evil Blues.” Here, it’s just “Evil.”

For the guitar-heads amongst ye, it’s my 1936 Natty, tuned to open Gm, and capo’d at the 4th fret. Heavy tapered brass slide, and D’addario brass-wounds with a 13 on top and a wound 3rd string … National fingerpicks …

I really hope y’all enjoy this, it’s a song I’ve loved some 25 years now, and it’s both an honor and a terror to record it and present it …

Cheers all, thanks so much for payin’ me some mind…
