So…i started to mess around with this song last night, and i think it works, played the way its played.
So decided this morning to go for a 1 take record and put it out.
So i got lucky. Did not mess up too bad on the take, i have not played it many times so i needed to read the lyrics as i played.
But first and foremost this is a Demo/review of my new amp that i promised to do for some of you last week.
Well. The amp is versatile. It is for electric guitars, the acoustic setting on this one is just one setting of many. And it can do a lot to an electric guitar.
The recording has just a little bit of hall and reverb on it.
To be honest. I dont think an amped acoustic is even close to match an «clean» acoustic
That said. It is excellent to get your volumes up and out in bigger rooms etc.
That is the best review i can give it for the moment. I just havent used it enough. ( was a pretty bad review but at least it is a demo following )
Sounding pretty good Trond for something you’ve only just started learning. The recording sounded good and the guitar definitely sounded good. I guess if you’re recording with a phone we’re getting the best of both worlds as we’re hearing both the natural guitar and amp’d guitar. All sounded good to me. I’m guessing you’ve got other effects on that amp…try adding in a little chorus you might like it.
Super Trond, a song that I messed around with but never got to actually learning, maybe I’ll do my own take on it.
Loved the fingerpicking slowed down vibe, perfect for an early morning coffee.
I don’t have a lot more to add since I don’t have a lot of technical knowledge about the amp/settings, but since you are clearly interested in recording yourself while singing I’d advice you to get a mic and start playing around with it (I got a USB mic for 30€ and sounds great to me), it also makes you more aware of your performance if you can listen to yourself through headphones at the same time.
Thank you for sharing this with us! I like this slow and very gentle version of this song. Seems to me as you’re progressing fast. I was one of them who asked about hearing your amp with the acoustic. So I really enjoyed this one, like your playing and voice!
Wonderful version Trond, really like the slow vibe going here which is quite opposite to original. I do tend to like acoustic versions of various songs and this is no exception, kudos for being able to play that well after just small amount of practice. Means I am hopeless as it takes me almost forever to nail a song (and still get some bits wrong)! all the best!
