Description
A relentless jig in a relentless and busy manner ! Trying to get record levels right with new equipment on new computer....bah !!Amp (stereo) has blown its speaker out puts so probably better listened to in headphones as that is how it was cooked...one track,one take warts and all......as for the atwork....I have no idea ,,,,it is not relevant....but 'tis an elephant !

I think...
that elephant there may have had too much cabbage with his corned beef! This really was a gas though Chris and I will most definitely check it out when I get home from work tonight (but even on these chintzy little earphones I have here, this sounded just fine mate!) Thanks for the entertainly great work! Michael

the relevance of the elephant's in no way reflects upon the syncopation of the jigs ........what am I burbling about....

Not sure if this is your first bash at fingerstyle or not?? Its very good anyhows, shades of Tommy Emmanuel in there especially in the bass slaps that occur every now and again. A few miss notes but in one take that is bound to happen. Good job
Jarvoid said 2437 days ago (March 20th, 2011)
Ahh yes,but
also made up as it went along ...I forgot to mention that ...just hasd a few loose chords running around in me head and went for it.....


See Ya

Nice
If i tried recording any one-take stuff it would have as much chance of getting off the ground as an elephant.

Impressed. Enjoyed.

Would obviously benefit from a re-work with fiddle and box and drum, etc, but sounds good just as it is.

I know first hand what a scary place your mind is mainly because mine lives next door. Personally I don't think its an elephant I think its Thunderbird 9 their new attack vehicle taking off from Tracy island. That asaide great live one take picking buddy I think you play best in a one take live it is your strenght and one you do so well.
