Recording acoustic guitars

Just recording some acoustic guitars from my home studio for a friend’s project. Really pleasantly surprised by using a sm57 pointed towards the body to get a bit more ‘bottom’…I had never used a dynamic mic to record acoustics before, and it seems to add  quite a bit of ‘weight’ to the sound, so I think I will do this again. These are featured guitars, in a solo piece…it might not work for ‘strumming’ where you just want the presence and the top end to add some sparkle to the track…I guess it’s all about experimenting and judging on a  song-by-song basis. For this particular project I have combined the DI sound with 2 mics, one AKG condenser mic and the usual SM57.

Working on the new blues book

Just a quick update on my work on the new blues book, this is going to be vol 2 of ‘Contemporary Blues Soloing’ and will deal with chords and comping.

Again this is going to start from very simple comping concepts to go towards more complex stuff, not only in terms of chord choice, but also rhythmically.

I might post some preview soon…still early days…

I am thinking ‘Contemporary Blues Chords and Comping’  as a title…again, it might change.

Obviously this is going to be available in English and in Italian.

Il linguaggio blues si è sviluppato negli ultimi decenni da un uso quasi esclusivo della pentatonica ad un linguaggio più articolato, grazie alle influenze fusion e jazz.Mi è stato chiesto troppe volte durante i miei anni di insegnamento come andare al di là delle solite frasi di pentatonica che tutti abbiamo sentito fino alla noia, così ho pensato di raccogliere una vasta gamma di idee per stimolarvi in diverse direzioni, sia armonicamente, che ritmicamente.”
