Don’t Fear the Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult: Inside the Song with Shelly Yakus -Produce Like A Pro

➡️➡️Learn more about Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” here:

I recently sat down with my dear friend Shelly Yakus to talk about his experience recording one of the most iconic guitar riffs of all time!

We had a chance to talk about his time recording the Blue Oyster Cult classic, “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” Who better to talk about such a prominent song with than the man who was there to engineer it: Shelly Yakus!

We were fortunate to be able to get a lot of insight into the whole process, including the “Shelly Yakus Special” snare sound and how the incredibly articulate picking on the main guitar riff was done. We talked lots of “insider” secrets here while breaking down the song into its isolated elements!
