A little change of pace from my usual stuff...
I'm pretty sure this little etude is by Bach, but somehow I don't remember the name of it.

Nice tune! Thanks for sharing. You've got a strange treble buzz in parts, sounds a little bit like a sitar smile.gif

Yeah, the string buzz is kind of annoying isn't it.
It's either this very cheap guitar, or that the strings are at least 8 years old, or that my fingers aren't plucking the strings right. I'm going to do another take of this next week using my friends very nice classical to see what's going on. I'm thinking it might be also that my right hand is not perpendicular to the strings like I see with most classical players which contributes to the bad tone.

You're a good player. You deserve to get a nice classical guitar. I'm sure your accountant will agree smile.gif

Thanks guys.
Yeah, I was thinking of getting one of those nylon string classical with pickups someday. Not sure how they sound plugged in, or if they come close when recording to sounding like a regular nylon stringed acoustic. Right now, I kind of want to focus on electric for awhile though. Too much to practice, so little time. mellow.gif

I have two. One is a Hutchins (Telecaster shaped) sounds fine plugged in but for a really great sound have a look at the thin bodied Gibson Chet Atkins model! They are incredibly good through an amp or PA!!

man, Bach's music is so perfect....

very good interpretation!

The sitar effect is kind of cool biggrin.gif

that microphone does a very good job with the acoustic guitar, what reference is it?
