Favored Nations artist Rob Balducci just posted this new Lick Of The Week. His LOTW is currently featuring videos from his new CD Violet Horizon. This weeks song is Track 2 from the CD called " Friction". Rob Tells an interesting story about how he come up with the song and then plays it. This was one of my favorite tracks on the CD which I reviewed on the RHB not too long ago ( Review – Rob Balducci’s Violet Horizon ).
Rob who is also an instructor for Rock House says "In this video I am using my Violet Horizon Ibanez RGA LAC guitar, it has dimarzio pick - ups in it ( A Steve Special in the bridge in reverse) I like it this way because it changes the tone and makes it a little bit more warm. In the neck I think I have a PAF Joe. I am running into my Cornford MK50 11 and into a Cornford 4 x 12 cab with vintage 30's.I am using George L's cables for the guitar as well as connections on the pedal board. This song has a great feel to it and I was thinking Van Halen and Hendrix when I was writing the tune. This tune has a lot of energy and the inspiration behind this track is well, to keep it PG related.... Sex! I hope you enjoy the tune."
