This isn’t the first time I’ve featured a video from Climb Jacob’s Ladder, Paul Messinger’s killer band from North Carolina. This tune has a humorous lyric, but there’s nothing whimsical about the harp. Messinger uses at least three different sounds on this piece: he starts out running through his Crate VC508 tube amp, which is in turn output to the PA, then plays a pretty 1st position solo through the vocal mic, then adds a high octave doubler to the amped sound. Killer. This is one of the most exciting bands with harp in the world right now.

Happy New Year everybody!
