Going Back

Description
The joy of kissing a redwood tree as my wife and I walk around Laganitas Lake. A few weeks prior, we were ready to take the trip back to the San Francisco area.

Here it is in AAC - .mp4 version.

I don't think MJ allows AAC .mp4, if they did, I would make the link to MJs site.

So happy, Bill
I really like how you've been trying new stuff, adding instruments. You incorporate them very well. Everything about this is great, including the artwork. :-)

Beautiful Bill!
Amazingly clean recording - the other instruments seem to be better incorporated in this than in previous hybrid tunes you've posted Bill. I'd love to hear you with a regular drummer rather then the loops (no, maybe it's midi) that you're using here - something about the accents on the ride cymbal doesn't quite click at times. However, that's because I'm becoming more and more obsessed with drums I guess.
The sound of your recording of Betsy and the confidence with which you play shines through!
Lovely post.

Nice Guitar Work
You have a very smooth and seamless sound to your playing. Very enjoyable. Not sure about the synth decorations in the BG. Maybe I just don't like the synth sound. Regardless, very beautiful.

Welcome back home
I can feel the joy of you returning to the familiar place you love. Nice melting of the Bridge into the redwoods there too. As always, your gorgeous playing really stands out here as smooth effortless music flows from your fingertips. The accompaniment of the flute was great (though it could be a teeny bit softer), and I thought the drum track was distracting, and could have been left off completely. The rhythm is carried just fine in your playing. I'm assuming you didn't get your old house back, right? So you have to start tiling all over again? :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks for postiing
Ya, we are in the process of deciding to do with the house we have there. We want to wait for interests rate to go down further before we buy again here. Luckily they seem to be going down in a consistent fashion:)

Yes, I am still doing tile contracting-installing.

Thanks for the input drak

Such beautifuly...
...playing, Bill. Your guitar is so precise in every measure and your rhythms so pleasant and varied. I love the chromatic business about :40 and following and then the seamless transition back to your original theme. This is just so pleasant in every way. So, S.F. area compadre, you capture Laganitas just fine. I'm already longing to return in the Spring and I will certainly bring your lovely tune with me!
Peace.

UncleTupeloFan said 3520 days ago (February 6th, 2008)
great feel
very breezy tune, full of wonder, really paints a picture. I had a chance to go John Muir Forest (I think that's what it was called, about 45 minutes north of the Golden Gate) a few years ago, and that whole area seems to transport you to another time and place, almost a spiritual experience. This song fits the bill.

Peace,
Paul

Great "woody" hugging guitar sound!
Hi there. I really am interested to know how you recorded the guitar so well....? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks!
thetiler said 3517 days ago (February 8th, 2008)
Hi eric
I record with very good mics I think. They are c451b's, they are stereo. I am trying to record as close to the guitar body as I can. Lately, I have been trying not to get too close to the fret board because I just don't like the sound of slipping up and down the fretboard. So I have been trying to overcome that the best way I can.

But those mics are a little more expensive than regular priced mics, but anything that can get a good sound and I can afford I am all for.

I also think the plug ins like "Fat EQ" in Logic 8 and a tad of Space Designer are helpful.

No longer solo?
I guess I haven't kept up with your tunes. Last time I looked you were playing strictly solo. This getting more into smooth jazz territory, with those side-sticking drums.

Very enjoyable.
