Beautiful playing...
...as ever. I am in awe of your touch. Ambient and atmospheric in the best sense of the word. I have a tendency to add rather than subtract, so I couldn't help but hear strings (of the chamber orchestra variety) coming in just after the halfway point. But that's just me. Sweet piece. Downloaded and added to my morning playlist. Nice.

I was in an opening tuning
from another tune. I was hearing a wind theme, just vaguely touched a few of my senses in my brain I think. So I thought I would try to slow the piece down that I did of an opening tuning I've done a few days ago.

And here it is. Glad you liked it dajama! Thanks!

Prairie scene
I can imagine a wide open prairie at night, with a few tumbleweeds being blown around, and maybe a few people sitting around a campfire playing and listening to the music. Very beautiful and warm music.

You've actually done a difficult thing...
...recording wise, in getting a wind sound that sounds like wind and not just white noise in the background...

The guitar tone in the foreground is strong, clear, resonant, and doesn't suffer from the use of the wind...

This tuning seems to suit your guitar very well. You're getting a beautiful recorded tone, and the playing suits and seems to derive organically from the tuning.

Hi
A lovely piece, a kind of reflection, very nice and warm tone that suits the piece very well.
I'm happy to come across your music, being a guitar player myself.
With the sound of the lower strings, one could imagine and hear a sort of upright bass playing along.

greetings

Lovely recording and playing Bill
Since I started out here at MJ, your recording of Betsy has always been my target for revording my acoustic parts - the recording here is a fine example of how to do it well. Are you still playing Betsy? Sounds like her. I like the occasional pan R to L for increased interest - subtle but effective.

Thanks
Jig, this is Betsy with an MXL 2001 left side and a Shure K-109 on the right. I think it is tough to obtain a rich recording when striking rhythms such as rock etc. But what I find fun about slowing down, is you sure can drone more. Having two mics if they don't cancel each other out is nice. For the MXL because it is a large none-stick mic, it can get the lows and the stick can obtain a bit of the highs.

But getting the mics as close as possible without going on top of the hole is crucial for open tunings. I thought that recording in a large rm or a tiled room was great, but I think recording in a small room that has containment condense the sound as long as you get the mics up close without going in the red.

I think not paying attention in GB to the outplay of the sound is ok as long as you pay strick attention just to each individual track sound (important).

Heck on this one I had my screen set up were I couldn't even see the playback sound. That is not the editing portion anyway!

If you are using two mics, don't get the mic too close to the 1,2 and 3 strings but maybe higher towards the 6 sting etc. But not so close to squeak the frets :)

But if you get that nice drone sound, it excels in open tunes with usually more than one string. Such as the one I am using.

1st string side >DAGDAD <6string side

A good guitar that doesn't rattle is monumental. Meaning strings not too close to the frets. (lots of cheapies do that).

Medium strings of more meat on the strings for better open tuning sounds. If hands can take that.

I am having fun recording in my large closet, even though I am in the back of it and my wife and my clothes are in front. Still plent of space for a nice mini recording studio. As long as you have a long VGA wire etc and usb bus, can be piggy backed but ok. A wireless mouse and keyboard work fine. But to my amazement is that the new apple mighty mouse wasn't so mighty, it didn't carry as long as my Kensington mouse did. Cause with the Might Mouse the pointer was weak on the monitor if you know what I mean!!!!

Thanks ...
. for the detail Bill. I remember you giving me loads of useful comments and advice on recording maybe 18 months ago, and I appreciated it a lot. I'm using my Rode NT3 and the on-board mic on my Seagull, and am quite happy with the results.
Keep those songs coming and I'll try to keep up!
Cheers,
Neil

Pretty much
With the exception of the fingerpicking and words on "O Such Memories". The original of "Like An Angel" is a fews years back. But I added Jam Pack 4 orchestration a week or so ago. Echoes original was last year. The Jam Pack 4 is about a week ago as well.

Wind is a few days old
But there are derivatives from Balereka. With the open tuning, the way the strings ring in that tuning. I had this inkling of going with a wind sound. That particular open tuning really prompted me to do that.

Another great song Bill! I've run out of adjectives at the moment but it is beautiful. I agree the wind sound is just perfect!

Wow!
I haven't been to listen to your new stuff in a while (I've just been sort of busy and distracted) but now that I do, I have to say that this is really great. I noticed that you say you're recording in a smaller room, and I have to say I really prefer that. Great recording technique! and I love the DADGAD, this is just super! Love it! Wow wow wow!

Beautiful
There were places in this piece which reminded a bit of Gustavo Santaolalla's soundtrack to "Babel". Just the sound of the lone accoustic guitar with the wind in the background, sweeping across rocky terrains - it sounds great.

As always your playing sounds so effortless, and yet so good, and the recording is excellent. Ed made a good point regarding the wind sound - you managed to make it sound like wind.

Beautifully done!
