Jumping At Shadows (Peter Green Fleetwood Mac cover) with Japanese guitar
Last year 2020 I lost 2 of my biggest guitar heroes. One is Eddie Van Halen and the other is Peter Green.
I don’t have to explain how great guitarist Peter Green was. He is the one who started Fleetwood Mac.
Just wanted to pay tribute to him.
I always felt I had to cover this song and other Peter Green songs.
Then last year I heard the news that he passed away.
It took me a long time but here finally I did this song.
This song “Jumping At Shadows” written by Duster Bennett. Early Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green played this song live.
I made this cover according to the “Boston” version.
Maybe my voice is not really for blues but I hope you enjoy the song.
I’ve been using this made in Japan Les Paul, called “Duke Standard” made by Bacchus guitars, since early 2015.
With this guitar so far I recorded 4 songs on “Jesus Wind” album, 5 songs on “Overture” album, and 13 songs on our upcoming “Nabeshima” album.
But they were mostly heavily distorted sound. Probably I didn’t really do justice to the sound of this very special guitar.
I think I did some justice to this guitar, with this blues cover song. (Even though it’s still distorted to some extent.)
Sorry for the room light noise I had no choice because this was basically a video for YouTube and other social media.
Bacchus Duke Standard (Intro and Middle solo) (Pickups are out of phase just like Peter Green) This made in Japan Les Paul is great.
