Re: Yamaha APX-5LA

Another good demo of a well set up sound system and some rather tasty acoustic guitar sounds and playing. :thumbsup: Another example too of how an acoustic guitar doesn't need a solid top to make good sounds. It's a very popular guitar and if anyone can make it sound like this I can see why! Though...

Re: Fallen, accousitc jam

Sure I do. Think of it : listen to reverb, you always hear the original sound to. With delay it's the same. Chorus is a bit less obvious, but since it's partly a delayed signal to. a tiny bit of chorus superimposed on a clean signal doesn't matter, it enrichens the sound. BTW: the Gmajor has a setti...

Reminds me of a tasteful acoustic jam on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". (In a good way :wink: )
I hardly ever play acoustic into the computer, because I have crappy microphones.
Thanks BB, I have done a jam on that song to a couple of years ago. Loved it :thumbsup:

Fallen, accousitc jam

Felt like doing something different with the Fallen Backing.
Recorded another version of the Chord sequence. and after that jammed away on the second track.
Took out the really bad stuff :naughty: and this what was left. :D

Re: Fallen - take IV

Very atmospheric and a great flowing lead line! :thumbsup: I like the shaping of the attack / decay of the lead guitar sounds and whatever you've done on the tasty tonal / fx side of things it's worked beautifully well for this track. :clap: Thanks a bunch VB. Well to be honest this is Cybie with F...

Re: NGD resulting in NAD!

VB, great looking and sounding guitar.
This time I like the Microphone only sound. it's much more natural sounding, which in my opinion fits the guitar best)

Love the playing

Re: NGD resulting in NAD!

Life is way too short to keep trying to make an incompatible guitar work for me. That's so true - I'm in Hospital after a not too serious surgery and just trying to get my New Smartphone working. Again no guitar for a while. Thanks for uploading those beautiful music, keeps me busy for a while. I'l...

My friend Raphael came to my place yestreday, in case we could play some music :icon_whoknows: He brought his lovely Lo Prinzi acoustic steel string guitar.

Re: Fallen

Falling is a good title, the descending bassline is what makes it special. Nice playing over the theme and again a killer tone. Went into your playlist and spent some time over there! Thanks Gerd, it's a nice chord sequence to experiment with some embellishments. Some work, some don't. I even may f...

Re: Fallen

I believe my old eyes must be failing. Missed seeing this post. I'll go along 110% with your comment about the simple but very effective chord progression. I think it fair to say, "first try" as it may be, your lead part makes it even more effective. :clap: Thanks VB, don't worry, I forgotten all a...

Fallen

Last week I heard a tune again on Discovery channel and once more was stunned by the chord progression, simple but very effective.
Just had to record something over that progression. Am, Am/G, Am/F# /F(single notes)

Isn't much, just a first try
