I recently had to take my acoustic/electric into the shop to get it looked at, since the “electric” half of it wasn’t working, and a Made in the U.S.A. Fender Strat was hanging on the wall.  I couldn’t resist.  I took it home (yes, I paid for it first).  It feels great and has great tone and sustain, even out of my tiny little amp. So here’s “Bathtub Gin” by Phish.  I laid down the rhythm and vocals first (single take), and then laid the solo over that track. This is a fun tune and I love the solo melody, particularly when played on my new ax.

[Editor’s Note: We’re happy to welcome Jeremy Hammond back for another featured performance on the Guest Sessions.  He’s another one we bend the rules for a bit — there’s a solo overdubbed — but this is hardly bending, since the main performance (electric and vocals) was recorded live, at the same time.  “Bathtub Gin” is a great song; lyrically, it sounds Dylan-esque, which is more than fine with us!  :-)  The guitar work is perfect, and the solo is spot-on.  So, go ahead and enjoy this cool cover song music video by Jeremy and hurry back next week for the season finale!]

** EDITOR’S NOTE: **

Our favorite perennial format bending, Phish-covering Guest Sessions contributor is back, and this time, he’s brought a new guitar purchase to his cover song music video.  We hope that your Friday may be a little brighter for this great, groovy rendition of a Phish deep track, originally recorded for their 1990 album Lawn Boy.
