“Bathtub Gin” (Phish cover) [Ep 8, Fall 2011]

By Jeremy Hammond:

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!]

This is one in a series of acoustic cover songs, original music, and free mp3 downloads here on the Laptop Sessions Music Video Blog.
