"I Want to Know What Love Is" is a 1984 power ballad recorded by the British-American rock band Foreigner. The song hit No1 in both the United Kingdom and the United States and is the group's biggest hit to date.
My Cover is based on The Shadows instrumental version on their 1987 CD “Simply Shadows”
Used by Alan Brason Strat with Kinman FV-HMS pickups for the main tune and my
Fender 56nos custom Strat with Kinman Impersonator 54’s V3 for the 2nd guitar part through an Alesis Quadraverb Q2 with EFTP patch 0-36. Presonus Audiobox USB soundcard and into Cubase on the computer.
I modified a commercial Backing Track by raising the pitch by 1 semitone and shortening it to match The Shadows version.
The Rough pencil drawn Tabs are on my website including the 2nd Guitar part at the bottom.
Video made with 3 x Sony SR12 HD camcorders and a smartphone for the headstock shots.
Edited in Sony Vegas Pro 9.
Hope you like “I want to know what love is “
