(I'd go for something like ver3, although the version in my video has a bit of my own)


(the first section, at least that's a start)

Bucket's Big Sur Moon, one of the greatest pieces of guitar work out there, imo. And not even that hard to play, as I found out today. I've known the song for years, but today was my first attempt of really nailing it. I'm not gonna say I did, but at least it's recognisable. I was so excited to finally get this whole delay stuff down that I decided to put up a video for those of you who are still wondering about delay time and "timing" in your play etc.

basically it's all about maintaining timing throughout the piece, and syncing with the delay effect.
set your delay between 280ms (fast) and 300ms (moderate playing), set repeat at about 4/10, boost delay volume to the max, and remember that the delay is not going to adapt to you, so you're the one who's got to adapt to the delay. play slowly in the beginning until you're perfectly in sync with the delay. if done correctly, the delay will fill up the empty spaces around your playing as needed and give it this "techno"-feeling... ,)

1st part is without delay, just the first measures, to show you the patterns, fingerwork and how "fast" it really is,
2nd part is the original cover with delay, RP350, "tape" delay mode, 290ms, set the delay volume to max.
btw. this is the studio-version.
