It’s a Six Strings Story !
(may I Denise?)
Every one calls me Prime Minister & so should you!
Between you and me, I chose that name ( not because I’m the heaviest of them six, you bully) cause Nick – oops, I forgot…Spira – palm mutes the heck out of me…
Welcome to our story!
By the end of our SSS my twin delicate sister will reveal the name of the fine musical instrument we have been transformed into.
According to Nick’s life analytics ( fu, you are not Spira when you play guitar),
I am his most beloved note, chord, you name it!
But only in minor mode – till this very day major is a no man’s land for him…
There is a loop he created this August, just before forest fires wiped out any mood for jamming.
Here is Before the Fires.
Denying to leave us behind;
that’s what Nick has done with us (unlike, well you know who…).
Originally we were part of a really low cost instrument. It was bought with the only purpose of examining whether he would rekindle his relationship with guitar playing and furthering his music theory foundations; to the latter his Sun & Stars was instrumental (every pun intended).
Mission was Accomplished (again, unlike you know who…).
The usual thing to happen would be for that guitar to take a back seat, waaay back & acquire his new baby.
[The only recorded person to say “I will not buy another guitar ever” is Pinocchio…]
Instead Nick decided to transform this humble instrument into an one of a kind guitar!
Decorated top, sculpted dragon, new pick ups (mind you, the price of this set of Hot Rodded Seymour Duncan is waaay higher than the price of the original guitar)!
So you see, we were not left behind
and although not in Liverpool,
we will never walk alone! (eh Chris?)
G.o.d is the name and bending is my game! (drops mic)
Bye – that stuck with me after that awful, awful (but effective) rhyme to memorize our names:
Eddie Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie.
So the only thing left for me to say to you is:
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye!
Nick named us.
Reason being he always has the actual feeling of burning inside every time he gets lost in a jam session…
…hence the dragon who sets himself on fire!
If you made it this far, a sincere thank you from all of us!
We’ll leave you with another recording, same time as the previous one.
Nothing fancy in recording – just a mobile phone.It is a first/take/jam/whatever/happens over a backing track by N Nesbo.
So with all its faults & love, here is…Burning Inside.
