Production Notes - "Wall of Fear"

Yes, it's only thirty seconds long. But what a thirty seconds it is!

The inspiration for this snippet came the day my BOSS OD-1X overdrive arrived in the mail. Interesting tone - enough to make me want to showcase it on rhythm guitar a bit. The solo uses a Mad Professor Amber Overdrive for extra greasiness, and my usual Bearfoot Honey Beest didn't get used at all. All in all, the sound of this track doesn't really owe that much to the overdrives but I like it a lot! A win for the Kemper and reamping goodness in general. A slightly different edit (where the lead comes in a bar early) can be found here.
