Week 2

January 13, 2018

Got a tone!
Set up a looping environment in Ableton!
Did a fantastic improv on the very first take!

Did NOT hit record.

Recorded a few more things in the same environment over the next week, this was the best one. Definitely not as good as the one that got away.

Yes I tried to recreate the original one. It was atrocious.

Anyway, here’s Wonderw– err “This Chaotic Wretch Has Not Yet Been Seen By A New Camera”

New Project!

New Project!

I am going to ATTEMPT to upload a new guitar improvisation every week. Mostly as an excuse to play more guitar, because I tend to neglect it for long stretches of time.

Of course there are rules:
– no edits (silence/non-guitar sounds may be erased from the beginning and end)
– light post-processing only (eq, compression, reverb)
– simple accompaniment (none, a beat, or a beat + a simple bass part)
– create a piece of music, not a jam-fest (so recognizable motifs and sections)
– no blather, no pentatonic spew
– aim for 5 minutes, tops

With that, I introduce “Inland Areas Are Expecting A New Level”
