A little recording of my first outing at a plugged in gig. Played two hours and it was fun.
Some of you might remember this was an original composition from a while back.
Two guitars, banjo, octave mandola, bazoki and percussion on the day and some very lower power amplification outdoor.
That was really enjoyable to listen to.
Then caused me to fall down a rabbit hole looking up mandolin, octave mandola and bouzouki! What tuning do you use? This is a fun video with two being played with slightly different tuning - https://youtu.be/0YGNnYZwDZ8? (Jump to 8:31 for the end result)
That was great Dom - love the tune!
Bloody fantastic song mate!
I remember this one well Dom as it was another cracker from you ( I would say savage but some of the non Irish members might not understand savage as a compliment ). Well done on the gig and I could easily sit front row and listen to you play for 2 hours and more.
I’ll keep you a seat Rogier
Thanks twistor. It’s been evolving and growing all the time like a fine wine. I enjoy it anyway.
Thanks Eddie. Sabháiste as cabáiste.
Thanks again. Octave Mandola is tuned to EAEA which is unusual but works really well.
Different tune from the same gig. Doesn’t do it justice live due to questionable guitar accompaniment but small indication.
Sounded good, Dom.
I assume you played over backing tracks that you had pre-recorded?
No. That’s all live David. Myself and 4 other guys.
Ah a band, I missed that, Dom. I suppose asking to much that a friend of the band took some video on their phone that you could share?
I’ve thrown this together for you. Not very good but am idea nonetheless
You’re not the king of me, Rogier!
… but yes, I much prefer visuals with my auditory
Are you the black cap or lefty, Dom?
Black cap is I. Wine jumper.
30 songs or instrumentals spilt evenly among 3 singers. a musical journey from Traditional Irish, Americana, Blues, Rock n Roll up to contemporary. Covers and originals.
Well received. I can’t lie. I’ve never been into drugs but it’s quite the feeling to see people dancing to something you wrote.
Thanks for sharing the video, Dom. Really cool place to sit and play, to sit and listen. Music sounds fabulous with the ensemble of instruments in the mix.
