I Am a Child

A couple of things occurred to me as I was playing with this song, one of my favorite Neil Young tunes. One, I need to experiment more with changing some of the old tunes. And two, the harmonizer also works on guitars.

Band in a Box has a few hundred different song "styles" and finding the best one can be a chore. The style I decided on is definitely not the one used by Buffalo Springfield, but I really like the way that the melody fits over it.


I had no idea what to play for the guitar solo so I just picked out the melody, miking my Fender G-DEC amp and running the signal through the harmonizer. You can bet that I will be using that effect on something swampy soon. I'm thinking the 2013 remake of Nocturnal Mission.
