Welcome to ANOTHER NEW BAND here on the Sessions! It’s time for a band we have wrongfully neglected on the site, and among the greatest Alternative rock acts of all time.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers!
From their awesome album “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” is their 2nd single “Breaking The Girl”, which is a fun tune to belt out on the acoustic. The guitar part is very well orchestrated and brings out the emotion of the song.
I am using a capo for this song, but Chili Pepper purists will be the first to tell me that it’s not supposed to be played with a capo. Well, it CAN be played with a capo, and I did. So there.
Tomorrow we get to go to Fusco Moore Studios for the recording of the 10th anniversery show, so you know i’m all over that.
And tomorrow, Jim will have to come out of post-production hiding to give us another great acoustic cover!
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Jeff’s acoustic cover song music videos are no longer on YouTube, but we decided to keep his cover song blog posts up. We figured these music blog entries would be good for posterity’s sake and because Jeff always gave such insightful posts each Session. We hope to see Jeff’s impressive catalog of acoustic rock songs here on the Laptop Sessions cover songs and origianal music blog again in the future. But, for now, please make sure to check-out hundreds of other acoustic cover songs from all of your favorite bands here on the Laptop Sessions music blog!
