My name is Chuck Idol and I was classically trained on Violin at an early age. In my early teen years, I switched to play classical guitar and then soon thereafter began to play electric guitar.
I enjoy playing in an “open string” tuning for many of the songs I write. Please see www.ChuckIdol.com for more information and links to my music. Feel free to email / contact me if you have any questions.
My music is mostly home recordings and done for the great fun and satisfaction of simply making music. I play in an open string tuning where the guitar strings are not tuned in a normal classical tuning. Often I will retune the guitar until I find a blend of open string tuning that sounds different and melodic. Then the song writing process begins. My goal is to not to rely on playing bar cords and to ensure each string is played separately and can be heard individually. I rely on simple drumbeats. Please visit my Chuck Idol web site to learn more.
This song is played on some really old school technology running a high grade PC based internal sound card with Windows ME on Guitar Tracks Pro V2 and an Alesis Drum Machine. All Guitar parts are cut across 4 tracks then mixed down in Guitar Tracks Pro V4.I also record with my longtime friend on a Pro Tools V10 system.
