PostsBlack Flag - "My War" (guitar cover)
This is my cover of Black Flag's song "My War" (1984). The character in this song kind of reminds me of the gun people in high-alert paranoia mode since the Newtown, CT school shooting on December 14, 2012. Some decided the best solution was to arm teachers which would put guns IN the school and transforms them into a war zone. That seems about as reasonable as the person in this song. Henry Rollins does a great job of bring that character to life!
I played the on my Fender Violet Deliriums ESM Signature Model Blacktop HH Jaguar (ESM = Explosive Space Modulator) which has Seymour Duncan SH-1 pickups, a killswitch, and some neato stickers on the pickguard. I ran it through my 1970s Silverface Twin Reverb with various effects. I used a Boss ME-6 for the basic distortion sound. American hardcore like this requires everything to be downpicked. If you have never downpicked a song the whole way through,give this one a shot. You will notice the difference in feeling and sound. To record it,
