Loving Kind

No vid, just a picture I took, and a song made of pieces of "Loving Kind"!

I bought an album on the cutout bin years ago that was the original Fleetwood Mac playing live... Peter Green/Danny Kirwan era. So many great songs, but Loving Kind has long been a fav.

So, I decided I'd totally screw up one of the awesome songs and make it horrible. Seriously though, I've had it around and enjoy it, so I thought I'd share.

One of the fun aspects is what sounds like a flute riff (to me), that was totally constructed of a very odd harmonic overtone that happens on the recording at one point.

The riffs have a cool swing, and it was a little weird to make it lilt right. I just like the way that the parts interplay, and when the guitar riffs break in. I used some octave doubler stuff for that first guitar break, and broke out a tape machine and space echo for some of this.

The whole thing of that bass getting peaky and distorting on certain notes is very on purpose... if you don't like that kind of thing, oh well.
