I've been working with a new band, mostly playing acoustic folk, but managing to squeeze some blues in sometimes
This is a recording I made and mixed myself of one of our songs, pretty much a standard 12-bar blues, with the band. This is a rough demo, recorded in our rehearsal room, but it's listenable - I hope!
Interested to hear what ya'll think... for anyone who has heard stuff I've posted here previously, this is quite different - less , more
Plasterboard Saints - Woodlark
Saints mast 4.mp3 - (9.13 MiB)
I picked up my axe and noticed - F# for an acoustic Blues
Did you use a capo?
Great tone from the guitar and nicely bluesy runs - your singer has an excellent voice and expression, and I thought that the fiddle was a good addition that gave a bit of a crossover feel to the song.
I've always had a liking for crossover genre bands.
Thanks - yes, I've found that working with a "real" singer (as opposed to people who can sing,or just singing myself), I often have to change key to best suit the vocal range. Luckily for us guitarists, that's a simple enough process, and a capo is essential!
Funny story about this one, I wrote it in E, switched to F# for the singer, and played it live many times. When it came to recording, I knew we wouldn't have much time in the rehearsal room, so I pre-recorded the guitar part at home - and completely forgot about the capo! Leading to some confused looks from the singer when she tried to record the vocal. So I had to quickly record the guitar part again with a capo, one take, no time for mistakes. Hence during the little guitar "solo" part, the timing goes off slightly. Oh well.
Thanks VB, good to see you're still here, still playing and still improving - as we all are!
Once again, just wonderful!
Great guitar tone, and I really like the vocals. I have always enjoyed working with female vocalists.
