Kind of a little fingerpicking thing, the product of two brief late-night sessions Friday and Saturday, using the $60 Univox hollowbody in Bb F Bb F Bb C tuning. (It's been a while for this guitar!) There are a few finger flubs here and there, but I wanted to keep the spontaneous feeling to this. Some sections I'd tracked didn't get used, but the stronger ones are here.

No effects, no vintage circuit on the Volt 1, but there's some convolution reverb and a bit of compression/eq on the main.

The title comes from the BC549 switching transistor, and the way that this piece switches between minor and major sections.

love it. the finger-picking is a nice touch. $60 Univox FTW  heart

Great example of the artist showcasing the instrument it never is the gear, really enjoyed, well done.

this is so pretty
it's storming here right now & the garden was so dry - this feels refreshing like the rain

Really awesome piece.  I love how the arpeggio is split between the two guitar voices and the use, really make great use of the stereo field to highlight the harmony.  Sounds super cool, I'm definitely going to steal that trick.
