I’ve always struggled to find a happy place when it comes to reproducing/delivering my songs on stage. There has been such a gulf between my records and my solo live material. I’ve found this difficult to reconcile and a bit soul destroying at times.
About 6 or 7 months ago I decided to actively solve this problem. Rather than just letting it get me down. After all there are usually solutions to most struggles. Just requires some commitment and intention.
Over the past few weeks I’ve taken this project on. And so with plenty of experimentation, trial, error, and interesting accidental discoveries, I’m getting somewhere. The last of the wires arrived yesterday so I could complete the new, rather extreme pedalboard that I’ve been building. And I’m delighted to say that things are coming together.
Best Days is a song I have been desperate to play live in some way. It’s one that several people have requested. I love the fact that I can do the whole thing with pedals. I feel like this is the dawn of an exciting (if not rather challenging) new era of live stuff!
