  • Hey everybody!

    This is an acoustic song in D minor.

    I tuned my guitar in DADGAD.
    This tuning is used by a lot of acoustic guitar players such as like Michael Hedges, Andy McKee, Kaki King and many others.

    Basically this song is a combination of slap and fingerstyle rhythms but in a certain part of the song I pull the headstock of my guitar to create a nice crashed sound.

    I recorded it with the Zoom A3 pedal, plugged straight in my audio interface.

    Hope you guys dig it!
