Hello
Thanks Roxanne for listening and taking the time to leave such a nice comment. The tuning was CFCFCF which I've been experimenting with a lot recently.
Best wishes

wow - this is some gorgeous guitar playing. Love how easily you pull off those harmonics. Very beautiful, a real achievement - congrats!

Thanks
Thanks so much for listening Karen. It took a few runs to get the harmonics to ring true. There are a few that are still a bit muffled but I think that's as good as I can do without splicing overdubbed bits in and I like a single take recorded all in one go even if it means a few bum notes get left in. However, once I get the hang of seamlessly inserting new bits to correct mistakes this philosophy might change!

Hi Feter
I think you and Yeman are the best qualified Macjammers to comment on whether this is getting towards an Eastern sound so your supportive comment is very much appreciated.
Hats off to you too my friend!

I agree
Very Eastern feel - I love it. Your guitar sound is, as always, amazing - crystal clear, and full. And your playing continues to impress; you have wonderful rhythm and timing, and a great touch. Outstanding. Hats off to you, sir. Nicely done. Peace.

Loved the sound - really different and interesting. Dont know how long you spent on this but it has a real live and spontaneous feel to it

Hello
Hi , thanks for taking the time to listen. You are right in that I was recording while doodling around with this and just happened to get a half decent take. In that sense it was a live and more or less improvised couple of minutes hence the background sniffing and the quick fade out to hide were it started to go very wrong! I tried to record it properly later without the sniffing but this first attempt always sounded the best.
Cheers

You're right. I hear something Moorish in there. Would go down well in The Alhambra de Granada. Lovely.

cool
I love the live sound. feels like you're in the room. very good guitar playing too. Good to know you left the sniffles in there. try eq-ing the sniffles more in the mix and give them a little more reverb and echo. they rule. jk :D

Wonderful and otherworldly...
...could be from a Middle Eastern bazaar, could be from an imagined world or another planet... You get great sonority out of that guitar... Very even tone without being flat or squashed...

Just making my way through the list...

Love playing acoustic guitar especially in open tunings (CFCFCF being my favourite). Every so often I’ll have a go with my electric guitar and even more rarely try to sing. Fan of Bert Jansch, Beatles, Ralph Mctell, Mark Knopfler, Nick Drake etc. ... [see more]
