John Smith Visits That Pedal Show

John Smith Visits That Pedal Show

June 21, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/8-UnSRXlG8I

Well this was a turn up for the books. Blinking once again into the dawn light of our own ignorance, Dan and I are awakened to the immense talents of Mr John Smith. We have Simon to thank – he and John are friends – for this most auspicious and fortuitous happening.

John’s unique blend of British folk and Americana hits the sweetest of spots on our radar. A fingerstyle master, slide supremo, accomplished songwriter and utterly compelling vocalist, we feel privileged to welcome him to Schwangri-La where we get to hang out, talk guitars, build a board and get treated to our own performance of three songs. It’s a day we’ll never forget… at least until the next time he comes back, which he surely must!

Yes, we know the show was about two hours shorter than it should have been. Children needed to be collected, flights caught and all that life stuff. The important thing was that we got the board built for his tour. He WILL be back!

I’d just like to add – Mick here – all those tracks were first takes, straight out of the gate. Colour us impressed, deeply moved and forever inspired!

For everything John, please head to https://www.johnsmithjohnsmith.com/

The tracks he plays are:
• 'Joanna' (from the album Headlong, 2017)
• 'Winter' (from the album The Fox And The Monk, 2006/2010)
• 'Hares On The Mountain' (from the album Hummingbird, 2018)

Enjoy the episode!

11 Cool Ways To Use A Compressor Pedal – That Pedal Show

11 Cool Ways To Use A Compressor Pedal – That Pedal Show

June 14, 2019

This is the audio of our video here: https://youtu.be/hlrvMG9X8KU

In this episode we deliver on a clickbaity title in only the way That Pedal Show can – well over an hour of something somebody half our age could do in about 10 minutes with loads of jump cuts AND boundless enthusiasm. Not here sunshine…

Nevertheless, these are 11 ideas for using a compressor pedal, taking in some general compressor knowledge along the way as well as hearing a bunch of different compressor types. Somewhat surprisingly there is slide, bass and enough funk to sink a modest lilo. Some come on baby, let’s squash…

Enjoy the episode!

Mark Lettieri Visits That Pedal Show

Mark Lettieri Visits That Pedal Show

June 7, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/ui2LVpvaVmU

In this episode we are delighted to welcome the wonderful Mark Lettieri to the show! Mark is highly loved and respected musician based in Fort Worth, Texas, who has built a stellar reputation via his work in Snarky Puppy, Fearless Flyers and his own solo work. 

We met Mark back in January at the NAMM show and fixed a plan for him to drop into the TPS studio on his next trip to Europe. Thusly, he stepped off a plane from Dallas and into a car to Somerset!
We talk a little bit about Mark’s background in music, his uncanny ability for groove and rhythm and of course the pedalboard he flies with. Plus a little cameo from Joey Landreth at the end - yep he was here that day too. Quite the day!

For everything Mark Lettieri including his current tour dates, please check out: https://www.marklettieri.com/
