Story

"Where the Good Ones Go" is a song written by a brilliant song writer and one of the founding members of "The Melroys" the late Randy Leiner. Randy recorded the song with the Melroys on their first album. Randy was a close friend and when he died suddenly of a heart attack I wanted to pay tribute to him by recording one of his songs. He had a great library of songs to choose from but this one really stuck out to me because it is a song about musicians dieing too young. When I recorded it I wanted to stay true to the original Melroys version without being a direct knock off of the song. I achieved this by adding an almost eerie sounding slide track that I recorded using my Demeter TGA-3 amp that I had just purchased. I have tried to duplicate the sound I got live using other amps and it just doesn't happen without the TGA-3. " Where the Good Ones Go" was the last song I recorded on my CD "Guitar on the Brain" I wish I had owned that amp for the rest of the songs on the CD. It's the best amp I have ever owned and I think the best amp ever built for playing slide.
