Great to see you back on the Forum, Gee! "If You're Gone" is an obscure and underrated Byrds song, one of my absolute favorites. You really manage to capture the spirit of the original, while putting your own spin on the song. I hope others will enjoy this post as much as I have! 8) 8) 8)

I used my 360-12, a real Pulse drumset, a Danelectro 6-string and a 1964 Fender P-Bass. Recorded originally on a Tascam MX488 8-track recorder, then mastered via Cakewalk. Thanks for the kind words! :D

So, this was a piece of cake?

Not to belabor the obvious, but is that a Janglebox I hear?

I just wanted to ask you if you use thumb and/or fingerpicks on "If You're Gone." You get a very lovely 12-string sound. 8)

Thanks for the comment....I just used a Fender medium pick....the trick is the DoD Milkbox compressor, and listening to the song a thousand times since 1965...... 8)

Gee,

I was just listening to your version of The Byrds' "If You're Gone" for the umpteenth time, and you really get some serious jangle out of your 360/12. Did you ever try one of the JangleBox compressors before you settled on the DOD MilkBox?
