“Delayed Train” live in Wales

I thought I would share a live concert video from my concert in Aberystwyth, Wales September 2017.

“Delayed Train” started off life as a tune called “Train” on my 1995 album Metal. The tune uses metal fingerpicks percussively to create an aggressive, metallic texture.

Over ten years later – after appreciating the delay-infused playing of U2’s guitarist The Edge – I revisited “Train”, this time playing along with a digital delay effect to amplify and extend the rhythmic groove. I also added a new section in the middle and some other riffs and refinements.

I hope you enjoy it! Please share it! 😊🎶🎸🚂

“Delayed Train” is on my album In Here Out There, available via the music page at prestonreed.com

    Brilliant tune! The scraping of the fingerpicks against the strings is very interesting texture-wise.
