Hockey Fight Song

A while ago, my friend Stefan in Sweden asked me if I was interested in adding a guitar solo to a "hockey fight song" he had written. This song was meant to be used by a hockey team in Sweden, and the thought of my guitar solo being heard by hockey fans and players everytime the team had a game must have appealed to my ego... so I did it.

I think it's a great hockey tune. Lots of whoooo's and distorted guitars. For the guitar solo, I used my Suhr Classic through a Line 6 Toneport. I think I used the SLO amp model, and I added some delay in Garageband. There's a lot of distortion on this guitar tone, more than I usually use. I also tried to play a bit differently than I usually do, in order to get the solo to fit the tune. I am not sure how well it worked.

Here is the tune, for you listening pleasure (or not). BHC hockey song - it is hosted on Box.net.

Another thing, which I will write more about at a different time, it is absolutely possible to get good guitar tone from software modelers. The Line 6 Toneport and Pod Farm combination is really good, and I highly recommend using this for practice and recording. It is also very affordable, and gives you most of what you'll ever need for home recording projects.
