    Yes (Steve Howe) Cover - "Clap"

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey y'all,

    This is my recording of Steve Howe's "Clap." It's for a Hal Leonard book called Yes Guitar Signature Licks, by Dave Rubin. The reason it's segmented into a few parts is because they're discussed separately in the book.

    I welcome comments on the recording or performance. Thanks for listening.

    Sounds great to me. I've had a few guitar magazine and tablature packs with CD's over the years and this sounds as good as any and better than many.

    Nice pickin'!

    That was certainly very recognizable as a Steve Howe tune. Very nice performance, I love that style of guitar picking. I would love to here you cover some Jerry Reed stuff.

    Thanks for the kind words y'all. My plucking-hand ring finger is sore after working on this one yesterday! I guess my fingerstyle calluses aren't what they used to be. Although, I imagine that working on a piece for 10 hours on one day would've always made me sore.

    Illsidgus: Jerry's awesome, although I've never actually sat down and learned a whole tune of his. The most I've ever done was the intro to "The Claw." I've learned some Chet, but I should probably work up a Jerry piece.

    Thanks! That was just one Sterling Audio ST31 (small diaphragm condenser) aimed toward the neck/body joint, about 6-8 inches away. It's my Seagull S6, which is about 22 years old now, come to think of it.

    I ran through my Seventh Circle Audio N72 module (Neve clone) and through a (modified) DOD R825 compressor en route to a Steinberg UR22 interface.

    What was the room like?

    Were you using the compressor for sound or to tame peaks?

    It was done in my control room/office: 11 x 14 x 8 with wood (laminate, actually) floors and some Owens 703 or mineral wool acoustic treatment (bass traps, cloud, panels at side and front/back). And I also used two gobos (mineral wool) around me while I was recording. The reverb came from a free plug called Epicverb.

    The compressor was mostly used to tame peaks. It was probably around 8dB of reduction on the really hard strumming, but for most of it---the fingerstyle stuff---it was between 0 - 3db. The modified R-825 sounds pretty decent though. I don't like it quite as much as my DBX 163X, but it's really not bad. I also just got an ART Pro VLA II that I haven't tried out yet, so I'm looking forward to that.

    I'm impressed how good the sound is. It's a taste call, but have you experimented with the amount of verb you've got on it? You could ease back on it a taste. Wouldn't sound better, just different. Epicverb sounds pretty good, btw.
