But I appear to have been hard at work on an ambient guitar piece.
As I wasn’t in the mood to do anything productive I knocked out a video for something I’ve bought recently that has proved useful and isn’t expensive. There’s also a wider version for acoustic guitars – the Wave 10.
Too much direct sound picked up as it was recorded with just my dictaphone aimed at computer speakers but I quite like it anyway. The Fishman Midi pickup isn’t being used, it’s all delays and reverb from the Empress Echo System. The toneful sounds are from resting a finger of the hand out of shot just above the twelfth fret then hitting the strings where the various harmonics can be found with the other. The initial ‘explosion’ is with the strings damped.
I really should dust beneath the strings before videoing.
I shall be reporting the manufacturers under the Trades Descriptions Act as it does in fact comes without a stylus.
Of course when I mentioned finishing my pedalboard the other day that was Board A. Board B pretty much there as well now.
(Spoilt a bit by standing too near the dictaphone and picking up plectrum sounds acoustically).
After just the two years planning, saving up, and more recently about twelve hours wiring I’ve got my main guitar effects board done.
I’ve recorded a short burst of finger style playing using one of the two audio paths with limited foot control as it was sat on the bench
No, not subscribed, non merci, don’t use that one, いいえ, nope… may have to give it a miss then.
Come with me, if you will, on a journey through time – back to the Primordial swamps whence all life sprang forth .
