The White Buf­falo re­turns

Total Guitar - - LEARN TO PLAY -

Amer­i­cana song­writer Jake Smith AKA The White Buf­falo re­leases his lat­est al­bum DarkestDarks,Light­est

Lights on 13 Oc­to­ber, and while his com­pelling lyri­cal sto­ry­telling is very much in place, it finds the gui­tar dy­namic chang­ing for some songs. “I ap­proached gui­tar with a more riff-based at­tack,” Smith tells us. “Less chordal then ever be­fore.” That’s very much ap­par­ent on lead-off sin­gle TheHeartAndSoulOfThe

Blues, but the Buf­falo is still keep­ing his rig sim­ple. “For acous­tic, I ex­clu­sively played a Tay­lor 710e [pic­tured] recorded with Neu­mann U47 fet mic w/ a Neve 31102 preamp,” he re­veals.
