As I mentioned in my lesson post last Friday, my instructor gave me Day Tripper by The Beatles as my homework. The song is pretty straight forward, nothing very difficult really. I can play all the bits and pieces, but for some reason, I had the toughest time playing the song straight through without constant screw ups. It took more takes than I’d like to admit to get what’s in the final video.

This is the opening track to Dan Auerbach’s solo album Keep It Hid. Dan of course is the guitarist and lead singer of The Black Keys. It’s a great album and if you like The Black Keys you should check it out. Actually, you should check it out even if you don’t like The Black Keys because it has a different feel.
The song is pretty straight forward. Mostly G and C chords with a few D’s thrown in and a brief appearance by the Am chord. There is a capo on the second fret. You can find the tabs for the song here.

As I posted last week, I went out and tested a EHX Big Muff Pie and a Analogman Sunface NKT 275. The one fuzz box I wanted to try but didn’t because nobody had one available locally was the Keeley Fuzz Head. When I was listening to samples of fuzz boxes, the Keeley was actually my favorite out of them all. But obviously you can’t tell anything about how somethings really going to sound off of a YouTube video. Even trying them out in the store only gives you a little idea of how it will work for you. It’s not until you get things home and use it with your gear that you’ll really know how you’ll like it.
