Back we went with the same 2 engineers and guitarists starved of daylight and fed on a soundtrack of whack-a-ticka and kit kats. Armed with a telecaster, numerous Strats and all the adult material we could muster we went back to work on FRONTLINES Chips and Chops 2. Once more we have worked hard to bring you this Funktastic fusion of inspiration and the best recording kit money can buy, to kick you into creative mode.
Class A Pre’s from Neve, top end mics from Neumann and a couple of those lovely Portico thingies were used to make a chain like no other. Funk Guitar is all about the parts. It’s never just one line that makes it funky, it’s two,three or four that make up the groove.
