TOBY LEE - ICONS VOL. 1
Welcome to Volume One of my ICONS series of albums
Volume One is all about guitar legends, old and new, and how I could pay tribute to the guitarists who have inspired me over the years and shaped my playing style. Picking songs for this album from the back catalogue of all these great guitar players was always going to be challenging. Thinking long and hard about the song choice, I've done my best to find songs that have not only become iconic in both the artist's history and guitar playing history but that also resonate with me.
We have purposely stuck pretty close to the originals, well they were pretty perfect in the first place! But when it came to the solos, we went to town and had a lot of fun finding tones, picking suitable instruments for the songs and discovering what array of pedals sounded best in what configuration. We had a veritable feast of equipment to play with, so why not enjoy the process of finding out what works best!
Anyway, here you have it, Volume One of ICONS. I hope you have as much fun listening to this album as much as I did recording it. Enjoy!
