In the Balance

This is the 3rd song in my, On Hallowed Ground series: where I’m contemplating the tribulation of a sports team.

I am writing this music for a potential film, so that’s why this piece is so short. It’s just meant a segway. Even still, everything I create — I put on the blog. Someone will find value in playing it.

The title is, In the Balance, where maybe there’s a conflict between an athlete and coach, or athlete and parent. The melody eventually resolves – signaling the player or team is back to business as usual.

Gear Used

For In the Balance, I used my modified Eric Clapton Strat. The EC is built with noiseless pickups and an elaborate mid-boost and treble boost system. This allows Eric Clapton to literally turn up a tone control for (extra gain) guitar solos.

I had that taken out and replaced with MojoTone 58 Quiet Coil pickups (and traditional Strat wiring). The 58 Quiet Coils are phenomenal sounding noiseless pickups. Perfect for my recording.

My amp is a Vox AC-10: a warm sounding all tube amplifier with heavy hall-like reverb. That’s it. A pretty minimalist rig.
