2 mics and a preamp (sounds polygamous) :)

Betsy sounds so beautiful
It seems like ages since you posted Bill - what, maybe a week?! Very
nicely recorded as usual. I'm not as happy with the strings on this as I
have beenon others - mainly because Betsy sounds so beautiful. To
me this seems more confidently played than lots of your other songs
(I'm not saying the others lacked confidence mind you - this one just
seems so easy for you). Afraid I wouldn't have picked Fuer Elise if you
hadn't mentioned it, but who cares. Another lovely post Bill. I
apologise if I've missed any new ones lately - have had things to do

It wasn't easy
If you saw me sweating, were my eyes could hardly stay open cause it
was so hot in the house. It was not easy. These pieces ARE a lot of
work! Then I hope and pray that there isn't so much salt in my eyes
that I can get through the piece. We have a wood roof and there is no
air conditioning. So a lot of tunes that I just finish after recording
during the hot summer months, my t shirt is sopping wet.

Then when my son or daughter turn on the tub water, It stops my
recording. Or if someone slams a door and the list goes on. . .:)

Let alone using a capo, I had to translate the tunes up two frets,
Then going over and over and over the tune in practice to wring out as
much originality as I can.

This one was extra hard on me because when my son was taking a
bath I actually put the intire large G5 outside my room in the cooler air
thinking that it was the motor of the G5 racing. But it wasn't, it was the
tub water going full blast and it was quite annoying to hear that when I
thought I had it just about finished. . .

Again, these pieces are not easy!

I have to stop at times to spray the guitar to get my skin on my arm to
quit sticking to the guitar. I use finger ease more on the body of the
guitar than i do on the frets, cause it gets so hot and sticky while
recording on hot nights. I feel like I am living in arizona on those hot
desert night, but the real cause is no air conditioner (which I WILL buy
if I move to Nashville and buy a home there.

Who would have known
what you have to go through to record these gems, which makes them
even more amazing. I hear ya about the noise level- I rarely get a
house quiet enough to record. At least I have AC, but it sounds like an
airplanne, as it is located 3 ft away from the G4. Nashville? I thought
you were moving to Peachtree, GA... Oh, well, wherever you reside,
your neighbors will be blessed to hear you and Betsy making fine
music together. :-)

Who would have known
Ya, but there is more music possibilities there. My wife is encouraging me to go
there. We think the weather there is a bit cooler there in summer.

I will email you and ask question if you don't mind about Nashville.
Thanks Roxy for stopping by!

Really have to listen for it, dontcha?
I'm with jiguma... I wouldn't have picked out 'Fur Elise' from this...

I don't have much of an opinion on the strings... They're in the
background and my attention's in the foreground where the guy is
playing the nice guitar...

Your tone and articulation are both great on this.

Thanks for filling us in on the whole sweating thing... I needed the
detail for a full and complete appreciation...definitely making me
grateful for cooler temperatures right about now... Wonder if
SoundSoap has an "air conditioning" preset to strip that whooshing
sound out of the background... or maybe "shower", or "pipes in the
walls"...There's a market there, I know it...

Always fun when you post one, Bill.

Can't imagine life without an air conditioner....
....but then again, I do live in Mississippi. I wish the hot Mississippi
summers could help me play a fraction as brilliantly as you always seem
to manage. This is a fun and impressive piece, made more so by the tale
behind its creation. I love it. Now go have a nice tall galss of ice tea.
(Sweatened, of course.)

this version takes the song to a whole different and much more
meaningful level than the other version of it that you posted. I like the
key you chose and the tempo which is perfect.
