Tele Tuesday - Black (Pearl Jam cover)

Hello guitar lovers!

It's time for another weekly #TeleTuesday post!

I was invited to play a few songs as a guest musician on my dad's band later this month and one of the songs I'll do with them is Pearl Jam's first album hit "Black". I've been practicing this song a lot over the last few days and I decided I'd share one of my practice sessions here.

This is a simple song with no solos or tricky riffs but still a great work by the Seattle band! I love like it starts very softly and then evolves to a heavier tone in the chorus and Eddie Veder's amazing vocal skills are the cherry on the top!

This will be the very first time I step on a stage ever since the pandemic started so I'm really looking forward to it, even though it's not my own band. Hopefully I'll have good stories of the show to share here later!

I'm playing over this backing track and, as always, I'm using my lovely custom Tele guitar, a Meteoro amp and a BOSS OD-20 pedal. This time I decided to use the Fulltone OCD simulation on the OD-20 because that's a very versatile overdrive and I thought it sound nice on such a dynamic song.

As always, I hope you enjoy the sound and all feedback is appreciated!

See you next week!

If I could leave the house I'd come and watch! That looks like a playlist I could get around.
