Halloween Theme & Tuesday's Gone

Two questions I've been meaning to ask for a while now.

1. In the Halloween theme song, are those wood blocks underneath the piano?

2. Is that unique sounding instrument in Tuesday's Gone (Skynrd) a synth sound?


Thanks!

Foghat - Recording Info?

Was listening to Slow Ride and I can swear that the open guitar part is done on a Fender Champ? Or maybe some other small Fender.

Anyone have any info on the recording process - instruments, amps, gear, etc?

Some notes, here . Guitars got similarly complex treatment that belied the seeming simplicity of their final sound. The staccato single-note lines were actually layered six deep, with a few chords thrown in here and there. Some of the lines and chords were actually recorded only once, then manually...

Fine Young Cannibals - "Drives Me Crazy" Riff?

I'm not looking to get this tone, I'm just more curious as an engineer? But, does anyone know the technique used on "Drives Me Crazy" from the Fine Young Cannibals? You know, that really 80's sounding da-da, da-da? I can hear a chorus and some mild distortion, but am not sure of the guitar type. I'm...

I'm Back - And I See ALOT of "Tape"

Hey all - I've kinda been away for a little while - limited time, etc... Anyway, I signed on and see a LOT of different posts about "tape", machines, actual tape, tape techniques and the like. So here's my question: Since I've been away, has tape made some progress in terms of popularity or a comeba...

1977 Rhodes Suitcase Piano - $1,500 - EXCELLENT Condition

I'm the second owner. I bought this in 08 to use in my basement studio. The studio never really took off. So, this beauty just sits under its cover and doesn't get used at all. I'd like to sell it to buy tools for my machine shop - which is what I've been spending most of time doing lately. Tolex is...

Damn good guitar player and singer, I'll give you that. To suggest that he was a superior writer than Waters (for either words OR music) is laughable. In the end, Gilmour made a mess out of what was left of PF.....it should have stopped at The Final Cut.... I love Gilmour and think he's the best (f...

Does anyone know those sound effects in another one bites the dust? The "warp" sounding effects?
