Hi, I’m Jeff Starr, a filmmaker who also loves guitars and gear, especially the Line 6 FM4. This video is part of my series of improvised guitar solos.
This recording is very much influenced by Frank Zappa and the sounds he used on Ship Ahoy. I’m also happy with some of the deep bends I made and how I really worked one fret to see how much I could get from a single position. I felt like this was a carry over from my sitar lessons.
Note that I put the Moog flanger at the start of the signal chain. Previously I had been using this at the end or in the effects loop. I really liked how this early placement influenced the tone and how the blues driver accepted it and pushed it.
The star of this video is the Line 6 FM4 and it’s wacky sounds.
This song is called: Filter Freakout
