Phil Keaggy Cover - "The Wind And The Wheat" - 100% Axe FX II

Andrew Timothy

Inspired

I recorded this as a tribute to Phil Keaggy, one of my all-time favorite guitar heroes. All guitars were recorded direct from the AXE FX II into Logic Pro 9.

Gear Info:

Main Rhythm part: Music Man Reflex into Shiver Clean preset
Swells: Suhr S2 into Hiwatt sim w/lots of verb and multiple delays
Stratty Rhythms/Leads: Suhr S2 into Double Verb sim
Baritone Guitar: Xaviere XV-900 tuned down (6th string to C#, 5th string to G#), Nuclear Tone preset
Solo: Music Man Reflex into Dumble sim w/AC Booster in front, multi delay

I hope you enjoy it! This is a learning experience as I'm new to tracking/mixing.

That being the case, I'd love to hear some feedback/critiques as well.

Please share the presets as good clean ones are hard to come by. The Solo is also such a gorgeous sound. Thanks for sharing.
Would you care to put them on Axe-exchange with your firmware version. Hope it is not to much to ask?
Thanks Nickxmix

If you have the new fw 10 presets, you have everything I used. Every track used a stock preset (see OP), minus the swells. The only alterations I made to the stock presets was to engage certain fx blocks and add an AC Booster to the solo tone. Hope that helps.

Such a great song. I really liked your interpretation!

Phil has had a tremendous influence on my playing, and who I am as a musician. It's great to see him honoured like this.

Very very nice Andrew. I've heard of PhilK, but never really been knowingly exposed to his music. Now I'm going exploring. Thanks.
