Nothing Will Be Impossible


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
The story behind the tune is that I had just purchased a pair of 'Golden Age Project R1' ribbon microphones. Before that I had struggled a lot with condenser mics. I felt they kind of overamplified hard sound from the guitar. Attacks came through too harsh. Rough strumming (like on this tune) was almost unthinkable. So one of the very first tests of the new mikes was this short improvisation (and they gave a very satisfying result, very natural sound). Later though, I found that this piece was also nice music. So nice that I finally included it to 'Sound of Wood'.

'Nothing Will Be Impossible' is track #2 (of eight) from my record 'Sound of Wood'. If you want to hear track #1 of the record, it is posted at MacJams here: If You Want

Your attention to detail in the recording process really does pay off. The space and separation in the sound is something most of us can only aspire to ... but then so is your playing!

Cori does it again!
Great playing! You should put this on a CD! Oh... wait; I see you already have! Short and sweet, played with a combination of strong energy and a light touch.

Do you have another CD in the works? Something like, "Cori Plays Death Metal!"?

Wood & Metal Live, hmm .. maybe a good title .. thanks for the tip!

Relaxing
I love all types of music, but I never really listen to anything other than techno when I am on MacJams. I happen to see you in the "Who's Online" area and checked this song out. I like it. A lot of people I know play acoustic guitar, but are just starting. It was nice to hear a experienced artist. Great work.

One of my favourite Curry tunes - a beautiful recording/production - Al did a good job on the mastering from the sound of it. Wonderful sonic space and movement (how do you do that with a single instrument?? :)
Thanks for this one my friend!

Amazing ..
.. you do need to stop by and teach me how to get
that sound from an acoustic sometime .. I too struggle but nothing is impossible ;o)

You capture that natural sound and play .. well ..
brilliantly as I've come to expect.

Your a lumberjack and you don't care .. ;o)

Well, the first thing is the guitar .. I feel I was so lucky a couple of years ago when I found a guitar of my dreams at an affordable price. It is a Furch D-24. I love the sound of it.

Secondly I feel that the use of ribbon mikes makes a lot to keep the sound as it is to my ears when I play. And then there is a lot of experimentaion when it comes to mik placement. That's a diffifcult part because it also depends on where and how you are situated in the particular room. Small changes makes a lot difference, and often it is a portion of good luck if the placement happen to be just right (like it happened to be on this recording).

On the other hand I have no fancy preamp or sound card, just simple basic things, (you can read about gear in the song description above). I guess the next step towards a better sound experience would be an Mbox 2 or something like that..

You wanna come to Wisconsin and play that guitar this weekend for a gathering of friends? We've got a lodge, with a big fireplace. Now THAT would be perfect.

Inspired improvisation. I'm glad you captured it, and that it edited down to this very fine song.

Well seriously I have never been in Wisconsin, but I'm sure I would dig it a lot! American people have such a good feel for fireplace gatherings with playing and singin and just having a good time (don't think you really know how rich you are in that respect, at least as compared to my part of the world).

Man you can strum that thing! Your playing is always a joy to listen to. This is a bit different that what I'm used to from you. Reminds me of the deep south of the USA, which is dear to my heart. Beautiful.

Its been said
been the playing (and the recording) is superlative h, Cori. The tune itself is a slippery thing, uptempo and loose, with some moody little changes - great range of texture to the track .. just wish it was longer (always a good sign).

That's how big a fan I am...
I show up and listen to it three times today, EVEN THOUGH I HAVE THE CD AND LISTEN TO THAT ALL THE TIME...

I continue to love your facility for improvisation, and your touch as a player... This is one of the best recordings you've done, in terms of just the recording, using the steel string guitar... A great match of mics and guitar... I fancy that what I'm hearing really sounds like the particular guitar you have... In my little studio area, it sounds very 'live' and real...

Someday I want to hear you do an arrangement or an improv off of one of my melodies... That would be my Folk & Roll Fantasy Camp moment...

How do I vote this an eleven?

Thanks a lot Ed .. I know you had the record but didn't know you listened that much to it. Don't really know what to say to express how priviliged I feel to get such a comment from someone who has such a musical ear and such a broad musical perspective and listening experience. Instead of trying to say anything I will now intensify my work to complete the 'Suite for Littleton' (or what the name will be) which I am fiddeling with, and which is a tribute to you and Ziti.

It all starts at the fingers
and you certainly are one heck of a player. That guitar's sound is one of the most pleaseant I've heard. You seem to be able to make each string sing its own song. What type of string do you use? Great sound, sounds like I'm in the room with you (now that would be cool;-)).

Thanks a lot Joe .. I consistently use Martin strings. Lately I have been using Martin Fingerstyle SP .012 a lot. They are really nice to play, but I have begun to feel the Martin Acoustic SP .012 give a better sound especially for recording, and I think it is these I used here... it was a while since and I am not totally sure (but 90%).

My first listen to you sir. I am floored. Exquisite. The ribbon mics have lent a warmth and broad space to your sound that is astounding. Really incredible. The song itself is hoppin', fun, bluesy and swinging. Great stuff. My only quibble---it's too short, I just wanted it to go on and on.....

Hi
Nice, no I should say very nice.
I love the way you shape your tone on the instrument not only with your right hand but also with your left.
I also like your rythmical feeling (not all guitar players have it)
While lots of guitar players have one tone, yours is full of variation.

You all seem to have such high talent, it's a shame you aren't on tv,instead of the trash there now.I really find the music soothing.Since my wife and mother passed away a few years ago,I missed the many times they got together to play.Now,It helps fill the void.I thank you all again.

Guitar player since 11. Can't play other instruments than acoustic guitars, well maybe aside from instruments that are tuned the same way; like ukulele or bass guitar. In younger years I took inspiration from classical guitar, American acoustic... [see more]
