Tried to go in a slightly different direction this week -- this time trying for a more relaxed vibe: acoustic guitar + 0-coast, no drums.

this is a fine combination. the synth sounds awesome together with the guitar. could you do it a bit longer?

The guitar is very crisp! How do you mix it to get it sounding so crisp?

I wouldn't expect a sub-bass type of patch to blend so nicely with a synth but it's really lovely.

there are like SO many notes here.  that's really cool.  more more more or I'm just going to have to put it on repeat.

Something about it fits so well.  Kind of like the guitar is sharp and bass is so round.  Really interesting.

Thanks. Yeah, I tend to err on the side of truncating ideas. I'm working on exploring longer forms.

I think in this case I was playing the guitar very close to the bridge with a plastic credit card, which may have added a little more treble crispiness. Nothing too fancy going on with the mixing.

Thanks everyone for listening. I was happy with how this one turned out -- I'm glad the contrasting parts seemed to work...
