Hi everyone

So, although I've been coming around every now and then to listen to your music and songs, it's been ages that I posted anything. For various reasons.

To make a long story short, I went more into playing live. This said, on the recording side of things, I considerably upgraded my set up by and by - dedicated a room to it, finally, built a whole bunch of acoustic panels for room treatment, sold my old G4 and bought a Macbook, 2 decent preamps too, a pair of SM81, new monitors, sold my Godin with synth-access and bought a true archtop and had it fitted with synth-access, and bought a nice Guild acoustic. Woopi.

Back to the matter at hand, here's the recording of a new piece from my on-going experiments in search of a satisfying solo acoustic guitar sound, It features my old Sigma strung in an alternate "Nashville tuning" which was then dropped in C. I might repost it eventually as I just changed the strings to some with a guage that better suits that dropped C tuning - something that eliminated the buzz and twang that can be heard in this recording. Still, I'm quite happy with the results.

Talking of which - results - any technical feed-back on how well it translates on your system would be greatly appreciated. Once I'm satisfied with my over-all sound, I'll be off and running towards my first solo guitar CD.

Anyhow, glad to be back - and enjoy.

I really enjoyed this Bernard. You're technique is so good. I love the long decay reverb. It lingers in the background and makes subtle chords. The mic placement is perfect...every note rings true and the lower register is balanced. I look forward to the CD. Well done!

Peace,
Dan

Dan - Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the technical feed-back. It's encouraging.

Shadow - I missed being here too. I'd like to take some time to be here more again. I'll certainly post my acoustic recordings as they come out. Thanks for listening and dropping by.

Hooligan - thanks for coming by. Piece of peace. . . It would make for a good CD title. And this trouble world can certainly use some more.

Hey Tom - and nice to share some with you all again.

Hey Anto. Thanks for listening and coming by.

"Very well played". I wish. It's a new piece and I'm still struggling with it, which can be heard in the recording. As I wrote, I'll make a new one eventually - with the new strings that are better adapted for that tuning, and with a better mastery of the piece.

I play guitar also so I know how difficult it can be sometimes to get a take that you can live with and Im totally jealous of how good this is. Reminds of the Pat Metheny album where he plays all solo pieces on a baritone guitar. Very much enjoyed this.

Yes, "One Quiet Night". It's actually the luthier who adjusts my guitars who made me aware of this set-up and of the fact that that's what Metheny used on that album. I had to try that out, and I'm hooked. It's really nice.

Thanks for listening and stopping by.

Fabulous playing and recording.
Very even sound and fine dynamic.
The thumb is a little dull compared to the other strings and that suits the piece perfectly.
This was a real treat. Thanks

Good hear to notice the thumb's sound. It is as it should be because I don't keep a nail there anymore, as I prefer the bass sounds now to have a gentler attack, to be softer, mellower, rounder sounding.

Thanks for listening and
the feed=back.

This is absolutely lovely -- I've listened to it twice now -- once on my crappy Mac Pro's internal speaker and once through earbuds, and it sounds great in both of those horrid listening conditions. As far as the playing and mood is concerned, I wouldn't have bothered listening to it twice if I didn't find it so wonderful. Well done... I look forward to hearing more from you.

Hi, Bernard. I was over on MacJams and looked you up, wondering if there was anything new from you. I loved Here To Hear, and wondered what you were up to. I was surprised to see that your last post was in 2009 (not that I have any business talking, my last one was in '09, too). So I decided to pop over here to see what I could find..and I found this. What a gorgeous, introspective piece--quiet, yet powerful. Love it. Thanks. smiley Maybe you should post it over on MJ so people there can appreciate it, too. smiley

@maxruehl . . . I thought about MJ and might well get around to do so - thanks for reminding me.

And glad you enjoyed this. More of those solo guitar pieces may follow eventually as I'm more into those lately.

Thanks for stopping by.
