Arriving in Maun on a Dusty Day

Description
I bought a very cheap guitar to travel with me in Botswana. It's a Crescendo slim line acoustic. Anyone ever hear of these things? I can't find anything about them on the Internet. To play it live, and to use as a front end for recording in noisy conditions, I also purchased a Zoom A2 preamp. I don't know if anyone is using these things or was wanting to hear how it worked as a front-end for a very cheap guitar. This is a song I composed while holed up in Maun in February when it was blisteringly hot and the mosquitos were bad and I had nothing to do for a few days but practice guitar and make up loopy jam songs. I plugged the Zoom A2 into my Zoom H2 and ran that into Garageband. Added a few FX (like a delay) to the guitars after I recorded them.

Really nice
This is really nice and relaxed.

Nice also to read about the recording process. I often wonder about such things when listening to recordings.

And that guitar (I've never heard about them) may be cheap but it sounds quite good anyway..

Impressive sound quality...
...using the Zoom gear. I like the slim line. Never heard of...but who cares if it sounds good and plays well.
Nice way to spend a hot, mosquito filled day or two, I'd think. Fine sounds.
