Non-Typical Mutron Songs

Non-Typical Mutron Songs

Postby ImJerryToo » Tue Apr 17, 2012 8:02 am

So of course you kick on your Mu-Tron, Q-Tron, DiscomJERRYlator or whatever it is for all the usuals. But how about other songs good for an envelopey sound? Dead tunes whee Jerry didn't use it, or other (not Dead) songs?

The other day I kicked it in for "Sultans of Swing" and thought it was quite cool. I like it alot on "Breakdown" (Petty). And I know there are more I'm not thinking of at the moment.

In the Dead catalogue, I think the Mu-Tron sound actually works well for the Jerry parts of "Scarlet Begonias" -- but only if not seguing to Fire (too much of a good thing, ya know?).

I've been thinking wah-in' out the Jerry licks for "Loser" might be cool... but those are so sweet without that I have to admit I haven't tried it.

I play electric/acoustic Banjo and Pedal Steel Guitar thru mine.
This opens up alot of songs for the Mu factor.

I love that passage from the 3/8/80 After Midnight> Rigby Jam where Jerry slips into the filter so smoothly you hardly notice. Incredible.

I've used it on Music Never Stopped for Jerry's main riff and it sounds pretty cool. I've used it on Come Together, Sketches of China, and a handful of others.

I'm thinkin' playing along with Bob Marleys "Legend" CD or whatever your faves are could be pretty much of a MuTron field day. Hmm...

reviving the dead...

Van Morrison's "Cleaning Windows". Always wish I would here him play that song. Has Jer written all over it.

War's "Low Rider". Totally cool mutune.
