Description
no words, just acoustic guitar. I'm trying to use it to convey a message without necessarily introducing lyrics. With the idea of unanswered letters, I'm trying to demonstrate that life moves along although sometimes reluctantly in the absence of what we seek and desire and even in sadness, a thing of beauty can emerge. Or something. Anyway, hope you dig it!

Lovely melody,
that's beautifully played. I think the lead high part needs to be up in the mix a little more, but that's just my ears saying that, and they don't work as well as they used to.

A nice quiet song for contemplating life. Thanks for sharing.

nice.
how did you record your acoustic? my opinion, such as it is, would be to approach the issue in one of two ways;
first, take the acoustic and record it via the pickup, if it has one, and since it is a celebrity, i assume it does. this version will sound a little harsh, and the mids and highs will have squashed all lows from the universe. then i would reccomend recording a duplicate track using some type of room mic, pzm, snowball, or hell even an sm57 will do. you will notice this signal has no high end, only mashed together lows and midlows.
by taking both tracks, and feathering thier volumes, and perhaps adding subtle reverb and echo to only one tone, you can get a really decent finish this way.
the second way to do it is to take a clean mic'ed recording, copy and paste it to another track, and then using GB4's acoustic tone presets, the eq, and reverbs, take both sounds in different directions, one high, one low. getting the really tight slap of the bottom strings on one track, and the nearly hissing highs of the second track. then mix them together into one huge tone....
my time with GB have taught me alot of ways to get great tones without having all kinds of top shelf instruments or mic's. it has also taught me of its limitations. the key is to use GB4 against itself, and come out the winner...heh.
the melody on the song is wonderful, and light, but to me, the recording tones dont do it justice. any thing i can do to help you with this, in my own meager skillset, i would love to be of assistance. i favorited it, downloaded it, and loved it!

Hello
A good and very well played composition. I second some of the other comments about the sound. Razorkiss' tips will make it a more balanced sound with better highs. Have you applied any EQ to the recording as it stands? A boost of a 3-4dB around 7-10000Hz might brighten things up a little (also add a little bit of reverb).
I do dig this and look forward to hearing your next post!
All the best
Steve

Lovely feel
There's a great feel to this piece - I think you've succeeded in creating a sense of motion with that hint of melancholy. I'd love to hear a re-worked version if you decide to take those pointers from RazorsKiss.

This is such a beautiful sound . I love the guitar chords. I am not a music
expert so that is about all you will get from me:) However I do think I have a good ear for music. And I thank you sooo much for commenting on my latest - as I would have missed this and been pig sick :)
Thanks for the download for my Ipod. What a gem!! I can also learn a lot from you me thinks too. I have only just started to learn to play my own guitar and mine sounds like rubbish up to now. Not to mention my Harmonica do you play that also?

Peace Dee.
