In This Moment

Get Flash to see this player.

I met Roberto playing in a church in Punta Gorda, Florida. Being from Chile, and not very technical to begin with, I had to teach him everything on his computer. One evening I was showing him how to use Sound Recorder that comes with Windows to record straight into his computer. Using several adapters, I was able to put him on one channel and me on the other. We were using his two Ovation guitars, I was playing the Classical style, both were Elite models.

He was plunking some Worship standards, the most recent "In Moments Like These" - so I asked what key he was going to play in so I could plunk out a melody. Then he started playing this, just fingerstyled some chords in the key of A. I was ready to play the melody for "In Moments Like These", but when I noticed it wasn't just a different intro - let the Spirit create this Melody.

This is a great example of a Spiritual Song, if it wasn't for the Holy Spirit moving in both of us, this song wouldn't have been birthed. This "work in progress" is totally live and raw (with the exception of a touch of reverb). I would like to modify the timing of some of my notes that were a tad behind the beat. We also didn't tune up before-hand so my low E string was flat - I'm going to try to snip those notes out and modify the frequency - look for a post-production version sometime in the future....

No picks
I didn't mention - I normally play with a pick, and I didn't have a chance to get one out. That's why several notes are a millisecond or two off. Thanks for enjoying and not letting that distract you - or maybe as the artist, I just hear it more....

lovely playing....
and real nice composition; though an acoustic guitar piece, this fits nicely in the Inspiration (contemporary) genre you've chosen. Thanks for sharing this mellow music as your first offering.

really sweet guitar work from you both... just plain relaxing music, a little glass of wine on the deck, enjoying some time off... OK, well I can dream a little :-) It definitely instilled calm and peace, which is what you were going for, bravo!
