    Acoustic Blues (Nylon String)...

    Sign in to disable this ad
    This is a 12 bar blues instrumental I recorded about a year ago titled.."Blue Moon Tango".
    I recorded the drums using a Zoom 234 Rhythm Machine, playing the pads live along with the bass and rhythm guitars!

    This was my first attempt at recording my nylon string guitar using a Shure SM57.
    Any comments in regards to the arrangement and mix would be greatly appreciated!

    All fixed now!

    I was sent a link from Lightningmp3.com, who I use and their service is brilliant!

    But tonite in the link I was sent it had a (\) backward slash in it when it should not have been there!

    Never mind!!!....................Listen away!

    I like the sound of the nylon. It's a little twangy (I guess because of the sm57??), which fits well with an acoustic blues. Only thing that comes to mind is that I'm missing vocals a bit, the guitar gets a little repetitive. It's well played though, nice tight triples. Overall, pretty nice. Good job.

    Thanx Joepie for listening!

    That's one of the main reasons that I wish I was a better singer, the guitar lines in instrumentals can become very repetitive!
    I tweaked the eq quite savagely to remove a lot of boominess from the nylon string guitar, maybe I tweaked a tad too much!

    Thanx for listening Joepie, I appreciate your time!

    Cool sound Gorty. Good job using a 57. I'd try moving the L and R rhythm gtrs back a little by putting a dark 1 second tail verb on them at a moderate level. And I'd see how it sounded to thicken the lead by either chaining 2-3 limiters on it with a dB or two of reduction/makeup gain on each (try Blockfish), or use a multiband compressor on it to thicken the lower mids. That'd probably give the lead gtr a pretty solid sound.

    Cheers Tim for the feedback and for your time taken to listen!

    I will have a dabble with the compression on the lower mids.

    Thanx again Tim, I appreciate your comments!
