会わないつもりの、元気でね 「GUITAR COVER」

Guitar: Shiroimamikasuta
Effects: Blackstar HT-Dual valve distortion, MESA Throttle Box, Voodoo Lab tremolo, BOSS DD-3 digital delay
Amplifier: Marshall vintage head and cabinet simulation on GarageBand
Videocam: Panasonic LUMIX TZ-30
Video editing: iMovie
Year: 2013

This was my second SCANDAL cover with Shiroimamikasuta, and the actual video was my second one of Awanai as I felt the first one sounded too overdriven in the verse. My playing in that one also left much to be desired. This one is pretty so-so too but I digress. And looking back, the guitar during the verse is a tad too ‘under’driven. Heh.

For this cover, it was a mix of playing it by ear plus ripping off another cover and using a band score from the June 2013 copy of GiGS. At this point in time, I only had the PV’s audio to play with as the physical single was only released ten days after this cover was done.

I used the bridge pickups on Shiroimamikasuta for this cover. The settings for the stompboxes are as follows:

I decided against using the TS-9 and used the HT-Dual as a clean boost. The high gain during the intro is all thanks to the Throttle Box.
The delay is used in the intro and the tremolo is for the arpeggiated chords in the pre-chorus.

The amp is virtual, using simply a Marshall half stack equivalent on GarageBand. This was the pre-Maverick version (I think) which you can’t modify the speaker mic. The verse is played with just the HT-Dual to beef up the slightly overdriven tones of the guitar through the amp.
