    Nuevo Zambra - percussion and guitar

    Tonio added percussion to my zambra track that was in a thread that's been around a while, and I think this version deserves its own thread so it doesn't get overlooked... so here it is! Nicely done Tonio.

    I'm just hearing this for the first time... listening as I'm typing... beautiful sonorities with the chimes coming in on the intro... At :46 sounds like rain - what is that?... Phrase at :52 has a really nice L and R combination. 1:54 triplets swelling and diminishing along with the guitar... Then chimes with the guitar's percussion phrase – nice contrast there. And a strong ending matching the triplet rasgueados in the gtr. Well done Tonio. You know, I think the percussion could have been a little louder without overwhelming the gtr. Man, those chimes give it a mysterious feel. Next one we do together I promise I'll use a click! Heh-heh.

    EDIT: DonF answered my question... it's a rain stick

    Hi

    Very nice playing on both sides. The percussion fits well the song.

    Excellent work.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Cool Tim, I guess you got the file before my briefcase puked out
    How you do it anyway? I can't get in my self LOL

    Glad you like it Tim, I wanted to mix up the perc alittle more, but decided to keep it down. Especially cuz it was not a perfect performance-not that it would hide it just supplying the rhythm. I did want the cajon (especially the bass notes) to be more prominent, but it got lop sided in the balance. Its actually to the right a bit, and didn't want to hide the guitar if I placed it down the center.
    So the guitar was ok? I added a touch of verb which may have accentuated the squeaks and noise. Ha , I guess when the performance is so good, you kind of oversee(hear) those things.

    SnakeDog, thanks for listening and for your comments (in the original zambra thread).

    Don, apl, NL5, lurgan liar, Jack and Al, thanks for listening and your kind words about our new collab venture here.

    Ed, I sure agree that the percussion gives it a different dimension – I’m glad that Tonio was so creative with it and wasn’t overly conservative in a traditional flamenco sense. I think it works.

    I just happened to see Don’s first post about the percussion and grabbed the mp3 then. Figured the briefcase space might be glitchy again, so I just plopped it onto my server.
    I wanted to mix up the perc alittle more, but decided to keep it down.
    Personally, I still think it could be louder without stepping on the gtr. The gtr sounds nice and clear in it and the reverb is just right. The file I sent you didn’t have any verb added like the solo mp3 I had posted in the other thread did. And my finger squeaks… well, I was very disappointed that you didn’t’ position some kind of esoteric Peruvian finger cymbals or something to hide them… I mean, come on, can’t you do a guy a small favor?

    Tim
