Just got my brand new Danelectro 12-string back from the music shop where it was set up by trained professionals...
...and here's the first song I'm going to learn and cover.
In case you don't know that band (and the 1987 record the song is from), Fire Town were an early project of Butch Vig, who played drums and produced the thing in his home studio. It's a great album, but in case you're thinking of buying the CD, be warned that the only available version -- on Wounded Bird, a label that usually does good things -- is mastered, shall we say, unflatteringly.
In any case, I can't wait to get that opening riff down; I can still remember the chills I got when I put the vinyl on for the first time all those years ago.
