simple recording

By Q-Rosh on October 18, 2020 6:47 pm

This week I returned to my guitar and wanted to make a song in a 4-track analog tape style. I forwent to use my machinery of effects, let the guitar do his thing and just made the indian drumcomputer Taalmala do the background pumping in a very low tempo. I know this is not a masterpiece of arrangement and mixing skills, but a document of a momentary mood I was in. Actually I was showing my daughter the drummachine and what I was using it for. It was kind of nice to jam freestyle and having her presence as my audience then.

I always enjoy your usage of effects, but it's nice to hear some clean guitars, too.  It is kind of trance inducing actually.

Simple is real good.

Always a fan of your pure sounding guitar tone.  Simple is not always so simple when it sounds this good.  The background pad effects add a nice touch as well.

My recent hardware excursion has taught me that I am using wayyyy too many effects. It's awesome what you can achieve when you peel those effects off and go back to basics. Excellent work!

You get a nice table like sound for the drum. The clean guitar sounds really great, nice layering with an exotic vibe.

I love your drum machine.  good idea to use it as a background piece.

love the repeating guitar chord sound

A momentary snapshot, captured forever. Real chill.

Totally zoned out to this too, put me in good space for sure. Nice composition. Guitar tone and playing is excellent as usual. Cool you were sharing music with your daughter too.

Replacing and intriguing track. Cool moments like these are great to share with others. This reminds me of noodling on my instrument playing ideas for 10-20 minutes. Sometimes they become a track, sometimes they're just for us to enjoy in the moment.

So relaxing, glad you got to have this experience with your daughter, always fun when the kids take some interest in what we are doing, sadly they will then go listen to some pop song and crush my heart.

....trance inducing: that sounds close to be boring. Nevertheless, thanks.

I learned this from some of your songs. The clarinet song, with heavenly effects, is still in production.

I feel very similar. I should do this more often.

Yes, owning an indian tabla drumcomputer with exotic beats, which sounds more like an early computergame, is something very special. Thank you for listening.

Thank you very much. I hope you find a taalmala too, someday.

My daughter bought a vintage Sonic Youth T-Shirt yesterday and wants to share it with me. What do you say?

Exactly. I am noodling for hours and share the best moments with all of you. Thank you for listening and leaving those nice comments.

That is, what happens everyday. I had to learn, the new generation has its own heros. But she was tortured with my stuff all the years, when she could not influence my record-collection. Now she is looking for her own music experiences.
