The amazing Tom Morello talked with The Brag about how he record his guitar solos in general.
“Laying down the solos is still probably my favorite part of making a record. I always save it until last. It’s a purely creative, inspirational mood that I get in”.
“There’s no craftsmanship – I go in the booth, I lift up the antennae and I see what comes beaming in”.
“On this [Prophets of Rage] record, I really tried to challenge myself and go outside of my comfort zone. I was using guitars I’d never played before, pedals and amps I’d never used. I tried out a Jimmy Page violin bow…”
“Hell, I even managed to record a track with the first guitar that I ever owned. It was a Kay guitar that I got for 50 bucks, and it was found in the closet after collecting dust for about 30 year”s.
“Normally I’m a very traditional guy – I’ve had the same set-up more or less for the last quarter-century. I was really inspired to branch out on this record.”
