"Big Brown" (Long title: "Big Brown Undapants"), is the final track of 2014 for my "Van Halen style" playlist set here on SoundCloud. This track ROCKs with 3 different Van Halen Brown Sound tones. The main riffing is done with a later era "Chorused" VH tone, the intro and post solo are done with a mid-VH era "Flanged" guitar tone, and the song's guitar solo is done with a classic early VH "Phase 90" guitar tone, i.e. the classic Brown Sound.
These VH'y tracks are fun to produce. This one is built on some solid guitar riffing, and classic Van Halen grooves. We mixed this in both early VH style split mixing, and a later era wide stereo mix. The song's main riff was made up on the spot, but the chorus riff was one I had kicking around for a while and have been eager to find a home for.
Enjoy the track, and remember for those of you who go a little nuts when someone covers a favorite style of yours, these Van Halen style tracks I produce which only make up 15% of my total songs here on SoundCloud are all in good fun. Mostly I produced them to make VH style guitar lessons for my website. That said, if this is a style you're into head on over to http://JFRocks.com and take some lessons on it.
Of course as always this track is available for licensing to film and TV, and I know you music supervisors and filmmakers love it when I do these, you guys eat them up, but business aside, again, all in good fun. So kick back, enjoy the track, and as always CRANK IT UP!!! This is yet another one worth blowing some speakers over for sure.
