King Jack

Attie Bauw is a respected Dutch producer who has worked with some mighty rock acts, including Judas Priest, The Scorpions and recently a young Dutch band, King Jack.

Their style is heavily 60s influenced and the 6 string arrangements I was asked to do took influence from some classic tracks of that decade.  This short edit is from the song Battle, which ends with a long Db7 groove.  In order to give the strings an ethnic edge, all the notes of their melody are taken from a scale adapted from the Mixolydian, 1 b2 3 4 5 6 b7 8.  A bit of a finger twister to play, but highly evocative and intriguing.

Battle

 

The album is available in the UK.
