I have had similiar reactions from peoople who hear that I have a Seagull, or I get the shrug. But, whenever I play live I get great reactios to the guitar and its sound. Regardless of where I play, a small coffeehouse through my Crate amp…"
I am glad to see this group here. I have recently begun recording into a laptop using an M Audio USB interface. It is very different for me. Trying to get used to it. The demo recordings sound pretty good. I am hoping to learn from all…"
"I agree. I play both over the years, but I tend to prefer #1 if the context allows for it. Both work depending on the tune. By adding the "d" on the second string your adding a nice color with the 6th of the chord. This works nicely. But…"

Hi Robert - we are currently in Rutherglen (Victoria) a region renowned for its fortified wines. At the moment it is VERY dry. Good to get in touch. Don't get us much time to play as I would like as we have a busy schedule. Still I keep at as it keeps me sane! Brendan
10-4 on the ART preamp...I use it on guitar and vocal mics. I'm excited about being on this site, especially after reading through 60 or so earlier coments. It's really great that all these musicians, beginers & Pros are so willing to share with others....of course, I've always known, that for the most part, Musicians are the best people in the world. I look forward to hearing your music.
Hi Robert, thanks for the comment on "August Rain"..it was recorded on a Fostex VF160ex. the lead guitar is a Takamine, rhythm played on a '62 Martin D28. the Tak was recorded direct using an A R T tube mic preamp, the D28 was mic'd at the 12th fret using a GT AM51 and a NADY CM 90 set slightly behind sound hole and ahead of the bridge. This piece started out as just an exercise in chord changes, then my partner, Jamie, Liked the changes so much he started fooling around with some lead overlays..and in a hour we had the finished piece. We were going to extend it somewhat, but later decided we liked it just way it was. thanks for listening..and have a great day.
