Your Acoustical Performances!!!


Recommended Posts

Here's my son and I doing this great old Charlie Rich song (he didn't write it though) I'm playing my newest guitar a Gibson Super Dove...we just learned this song yesterday and recorded it about an hour later

 

Great! Very nice guitar/piano combo, the latter adds depth.

It ain't on a guitar. It's kind of a Gibson instrument by the way of Bruce Weber/Flat Iron turned into Weber Mandolins. Angelina Baker - old time fiddle tune in "A".    

Well (gulp), why not?   I take myself out to a weekly open mic at a pub in downtown Asheville.   One of my daughters took this vid last Wednesday (both songs are my originals), and the guys playi

Flashback to 1998.....

Here's a link to my acoustic duo playing a sampling of tunes. Using my J-200 through a Fishman Soloamp...

 

 

You guys are great Kevin, I like the idea of using a harp on Cripple Creek-I never thought of that but it makes perfect sense-consider that idea now officially STOLEN

Thanks Jimi -- and steal away! I use harp on quite a few tunes -- typically where a guitar solo would be. Tends to go pretty well. Unfortunately, I forgot to hit "record" for much of the night and failed to get our best stuff -- another time, I guess. Since we're just starting out, I wanted a few demo clips up for prospective gigs.

 

Play on brotha :)

DRC, that is really sweet. I enjoyed that tune. As stated, the instruments blend well. I've always liked mandolins, but your guitar makes its mark also. Nicely done, my friend. If you get anymore audio/video files of your music, lets see/hear them. [thumbup]

Thank you! And thanks to jannusguy2 for the kind words. Here are some other audio files.

 

Hmmmm.... Just tried posting four audio files but for some reason won't let me do it. I've posted many before. ????? When I get this figured out, I'll post them. Does this forum not accept Media Fire files?

Here are some other audio files as requested. Uploaded them to Sound Cloud since the Media Fire files don't seem to work on this forum.

 

"Hector the Hero" played on the J-35

My band live in concert. Tune is "Masters in This Hall". I was using the OM-16. Wow, the Uilleann pipes were a bit out of tune at the start of the third go-around. :)

At a band rehearsal in the living room of one of the band members. This is a traditional Irish song "Star of the County Down" that each of us in the band has known for years but had never tried it together. So this was a first take. Turned out pretty decent and was added to the repertoire.

And me playing Irish whistle. It's a handmade Abell Madagascar rosewood high D.

Christopher, I like your music. It has an "old time" feel and sound to it. In all sincerity, Johnny Cash would have felt at-home with your songs, just him and his guitar, or even your J35....And your recordings put-to-rest for me (at least) the views I've often heard in regards to the J35 sounding bright and crisp. Sounds like a guitar Cash would have played. Deep and somber.......Your music sounds real and your easy-to-listen-to. I listened to all your songs on soundcloud. Nice. My kind of music. Great for listening late at night in a dark room...lol....I particularly liked "Cristiana." They all had good stories to them, but that one was a real immigrant's tale....Good work....I think your guitar shines. [thumbup]

In a few days we will celebrate the anniversary of Doc Watson's departure.

My friend Giovanni and I, aka Zero Miles Turnips want to respectfully remember him with this song.

Of course I'm playing my beloved AJ [wub]

 

I apologize in advance for the Italian accent :-)

Beautifully done gentlemen - nice remembrance for Doc. [thumbup]

Here's an original song that is so personal and heart-wrenching that it actually brings me to tears every time that I attempt to play it out live. In fact, In fact, I DEFY any of you guys to make it through at least two verses of this recording before you too are brought to such intense emotions that you will have to click; STOP. Go ahead, I dare you...
