    Default Chickenfoot live: please change the setlist!

    I love my Chickenfoot, but the set list is lacking. I saw the CF show at Universal in 2009 and the road test show, the 2009 show was better, mainly becoz of the setlist.

    -There are no "heavy song" like Avenida, Get It Up and No Change. It throws the whole show off balance.
    -"Dubai Blues," one of the best song off CFIII has been strangely omitted.
    -The acoustic segment with "Bitten By The Wolf" used to provide a nice change of pace.
    -The "Foxy Lady" cover is far less original and kick ass than their version of "Highway Star." Again we're trading a faster song for a slower one. In "Highway Star" you had Sammy getting out of his comfort zone - same with Satch. The solo section was amazing, jaw-dropping. Just go to youtube and compare both.

    CF has to put their best "foot" forward and revamp the setlist!

    I for the life of me can't understand not having "No Change" in there. That song would blow the roof off.

    Agreed. This does not please me.

    This is the most bewildering of the omissions.

    But it don't mean nuthin', unless it's got sumth'n for me an you...

    Well then if they don't play it, it just gives you more reason to cough up the money to go see them again during the actual tour when they do play it...

    Yeah, I am a little bewildered that No Change is not being played. I understand that it is a hidden track and all, but it is probably their best song from either album.

    Hopefully there will be changes for the tour proper. I'd like to see all 11 tracks from the new record along with 5 or 6 from the first and ditch the covers altogether unless its a Van Halen song!!

    Sounds like there are a lot of guitars to pull off in DB. Could be why it's not being done live... YET.

    Joe Satriani of Chickenfoot Details the Recording of ‘Dubai Blues’
    by: Matthew Wilkening ~ Ultimate Classic Rock

    In part two of our exclusive interview with Joe Satriani of Chickenfoot, we focus entirely on one of our favorite songs from their new record ‘III,’ the Zeppelin-esque riff-fest ‘Dubai Blues.’

    After speaking about the album as a whole in part one of our talk, the guitar legend was kind enough to indulge our ongoing obsession by answering all manner of questions about this song in very informative detail.

    How did ‘Dubai Blues’ come together?

    Most of these songs, the way that we work is, I write and record demos. Then I send them to the guys. In this case, I did about 14 or 16 demos, you know full on — guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, that kind of thing. I record them at home on ProTools, then I send them out to everybody. Then, for the five or six months I was out on tour, they mulled over the material, decided which songs suck (laughs) and which songs they liked. Then when we finally got together, you know, to go through all of them.

    That particular song had a drum loop that was from an adrenaline box, on the box was a loop that was an old Linn drum loop. It was kind of an old-school hip-hop drum loop. I stuck that on as the main drum pattern. So the song had more of a stream-of-concsiousness kind of rock meets hip-hop vibe to it; it had these scraping guitars during the verses, it was all very moody. But, basically, all the chords and riffs were exactly the same, everything was there. I had no idea what it was going to be called or anything. I think it was just called ‘crunchy song’ or something.

    So what happened next?

    When the band got a hold of it, Sammy was trying to channel some old school, ’50s blues rock and roll story through it, but Mike and Chad decided that they would rockify it a bit more, so they kind of took it out of that old-school hip-hop, and they made it a little bit more of a straight-ahead, ’70′s rock kind of thing. Then, I had to change a lot of the guitar parts, now that the band was more dynamic, you know? We would up using, maybe, six guitars on that. There’s a lot of guitars on there. It’s subtle, but it actually took a lot to create that shiny wall of guitar chords. It’s very unusual, on other songs we did there’s just one guitar and it sounds fine. This one took a lot of layers to create.

    Would that make this one of the more complex songs on the album?

    Recording-wise, it was, musically it’s very non-complex, I mean, the chorus has two chords in it, that’s it. The basic premise of the song is a 1-4-5 blues progression, and I threw in a little bridge there, which I keep thinking, we should have done the bridge twice. But maybe it’s good that way, that it’s such a bright bridge when it comes in there. I remember — it’s funny how guitar players think about things — I just remember how unique it was in terms of what we used to record it. We started out with a vintage 1955 gold top Les Paul, and we played two versions of that, you know, rhythm guitars. Then we listened to that and went, “Oh, that’s too bright, there’s something funny about it.” So then we added, I think, two JS guitars, you know, my JS2400s. Then we thought, “Well, now it’s really solid, but is it too solid?” Then I think we added a vintage Fender ’58 esquire on top of it, and then later on we decided (laughs) well, we just need a little bit more for different parts, and I think we put a re-issue of one of the Jimmy Page Les Pauls on there. So it’s got a ton of guitars; they’re never all on at the same time. (Producer) Mike Fraser was very creative in how he would feature different guitars at different times to bring out the shimmering quality of the chords.

    I take it you were pleased with the results?

    It’s funny, because when we record, the guys only hear my one guitar part, and then they go away – Chad goes back to play with the Chili Peppers, Mike goes back to L.A., and Sam’s just popping in maybe once or twice a week with new lyrics for songs and stuff. So they don’t know what we’re doing. Me and Fraser are in there six days a week, overdubbing like crazy on top of the live tracks. They were all just totally blown away when they heard this wall of rock and roll guitar, you know? I think Sam once said, that’s a shiny and smooth of a razor blade (sound), you know, that a compliment of guitars could ever get. He just loved it, and was so curious how we arrived at it. It’s a complicated recipe of guitars.

    If I remember correctly on the first tour their setlist was a work in progress.

    They'll get it right.

    It's just a road test. I'm sure they will change things up for the tour.

    Yes I agree.
    Dubai Blues is one of my favorites...it's gotta be added.

    I like No Change but understand since it's the "hidden" track that it might be left out.

    I definetely want "Get It Up" in there, and "Dubai Blues" would be cool to hear live. In place of "Foxy Lady" I would prefer a Montrose song like "Bad Motor Scooter" or a Van Halen song like "Poundcake", "Cabo Wabo", or "Top of the World". I just want "Three and a Half Letters" off the setlist.

    See... this is what happens. A working band that puts out new material and is playing live, and all we get is a bunch of wah! wah! crying bitches complaining that they're not playing the songs they want to hear. Jesus H Christ on a Tricuit cracker for Gods sake.

    I would say it's "constructive criticism".

    I'm totally pissed at Sam for not adding more Halen to the setlist. He's totally thumbing his nose at his legacy by doing that. And the drummer and guitarist need more hair.
