A lovely little track as a request from one of my students after seeing them playing at Glastonbury this year!
When he was receiving an award for another song off of the same album Dave Grohl stated: “We made this one in my garage with some microphones and a tape machine. The human element of making music is what’s important. Singing into a microphone, learning to play your instrument … It’s not about what goes on in a computer.”
As you can see, the whole album of Wasted Light was literally recorded in a garage….and yes, this is the way it used to be done! I can still remember playing in friends garages as that was the best space we had available to us at the time…. a far cry away from the plush rehearsal rooms you can rent now……..
Anyway, back to the song! This chart is again, a lot of fun to play and whilst there are a couple of oddities in terms of fills with awkward bass drum placements, you can still rock out and enjoy it!
