listening to Pickin’ On Pearl Jam… it doesn’t translate as well as their other work but it’s an interesting listen.

Put in my request for Baltimore. :crossed_fingers:t3:


My girlfriend has requests for Seattle even though we’re seeing them at bottle rock. Looks to be a Pearl Jam kind of week for us


I like the new song. Love the guitar effects on the verse. Some sort of tempo sync’d trem


Only seen Pearl Jam once in 2007 but definitely going to try to hit Portland this go around. RHCP, Pearl Jam, and Foo Fighters all this year it’s the 90s all over again!

I noticed that too. Curious if they’ll be reproducing it live or not and what they did to get it in the first place. Imagine just automated trem rate, could probably do it with an expression pedal live?

I mean, he probably has that stuff preprogrammed and will be synced to a clock. You could easily program synced subdivisions beforehand. Expression would be hard because the subdivision change is immediate. Would be more realistic if expression was altering the subdivision instead of the speed.

Guess it’s possible, but that’s very not Pearl Jam in terms of live production. I’d be very surprised if they’re running clocked fx

Wasn’t it sort of a big deal when McCready started even using modeling amps?

Yeah you’re probably right. The only issue is that the trem is synchronized to tempo. Many trem pedals with exp have continuous speed. But I guess the real fast speed isn’t all that important to be in sync, so you’d just need to make sure the slower speed is. So they’d probably need to play to a click.

I just dialed in something similar on the Stomp. Enter the tempo, trem speed set to subdivision, exp controls the subdivision with the heel set to 16th and toe to 64ths or something fast.

Supposedly they started playing one or two newer songs to a click last year, so you never know. My guess would be that they’ll probably just ignore that part altogether, or have Josh Klinghoffer play it.
