La Sagrada Romanza (acoustical guitar)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a mixture of Romance, the famous classical guitar piece. No one know the originator of it. But many famous classical guitarist have played a version adapted by Narcisco Yepes.

I have added a awful lot of my own style on my Santa Cruz acoustical om/pw steel string. Using 451 stero mics, AKGs.

The picture without the guitar is one of La Sagrada Familia Barcelona. I found the picture and bought it at Dreamtime photo online. So I combined both the La Sagrada image, a guitar, the tune Romance,a awful lot of my own creations as well.

This is a wonderful, rich version Bill with your signature all over it. And I mean that in the best possible way my friend. I never had the patience to work hard enough to play this kind of music, and that my loss, because it is such a wonder to the ears.

Thanks for sharing this one Bill, and Bravo Maestro
Be well my friend

I've tried to play this one
and know that it's no easy task:) Sounds to me like you play this pretty effortless and confident.

Cool to hear his tune... I usually give up after a few bars...

Well done my friend:)

Thanks
I think the greatest challenge was to make the sound a bit more steel string sensitive. Use a bit more of an open tuning sound, though it's not. But to give a bit more of a drone sound in some parts to make the steel string come alive. Plus the micing is always a challenge in tunes like this. Because that tune was completely written for nylon string.

Deft touch!
A unique take on the piece and exquisitely played. Just wondering - is the Santa Cruz trebly - or is that the mix. I'm doing some work with my Yairi - and EQing solo can be a nightmare. Very tasteful though!

That is my eternal quest in
music. To not get it too trebly. But it is very tough when you play a classical guitar piece on an acoustical steel string.

Another incredible post Bill
Betsy sounds beautiful on this. Interesting how the mic in the LH channel gets all the attention but now and then you must shift in your seat and the RH side gets a bit more of the action. Makes it sound very natural and "alive".

I really enjoy your playing most when you do straight guitar-only tunes Bill. It really showcases your wonderful skills.

Superb tone and playing Bill. I like this better than the more produced version you did at http://www.macjams.com/song/41458 (though that is great too!). One to download.

You're so amazing! I can hardly even picture how you get your fingers to do what they do on your guitar. You're simply a master on the guitar, and with music in general. MJ is so lucky to have you! Thanks

i hope not to be a trashing or a penalty.
I hope musicians can find fun and happiness in playing their music. I hope to be able to influence them to bring out the beauty in music. Not that I always do that, but I love listening to laid back music and I hope the world will be more touched by it like it was in the 50. Not that I don't love rock, but it would be great if there were more instrumentals with out loud percussion. But I don't really make percussion my main theme in all my music.

I think when I listen to a great piece of music, it really is wanting to be part of it, to live in it and be surrounded by it. A great musician can be good at one thing and maybe another think he can be sub par. No musician really has it all.

I remember at a very pro guitar store, that a guitar salesmen told me he heard a very famous classical guitarist. Very famous, and said he wanted to expand his realm of musical styles, so he played african jazz with tons of intricate rhythms and he just didn't have the feel for it in is on stage performance.

I was very surprised when he told me that, cause he is such a legend.
Your unique, all us human beings are.
Thanks for stopping by!
