Happy Day

Here's Happy Day by Tim Hughes.. I usually take a lot long to help out with your requests, but this song just kept ringing in my head from the moment I heard it, and I just had to try it on the guitar.



I transplanted a few of the synthesizer parts on the guitar - the 2nd half of the verse (supposed to be a pizzicato (plucked) string sound), and the part after the chorus (supposed to be a synth lead sound).

For Pod XTL users, I recorded the above using a different amp from my usual Hiway or Class-30 amps... instead I used the Cali Crunch simulation, with the drive set to 50%, together with the screamer stomp pedal, with drive set to 28%, gain at 50%, and tone at 50%.
