Just got a ToneWoodAmp for Christmas. This really is an amazing gadget for acoustic guitars. It amplifies the sound and effects directly through the body of the guitar. This test recording with a delay coming just from my guitar.

Tuning: E A D G B E with partial Capo on 3, 4, 5

Originally I wanted to try out the Tuning E G D F# A C# by Erik Mongrain’s song “Muse”. While writing this post I just noticed that I instead tuned it to E G D F# A E and this idea came along.

I was browsing through some old ideas and found something from 2007. Back then I felt in love with “Low C” by Erick Turnbull . So the beginning is almost the same. I’d really like to continue working on this idea.

Tuning: C G D D# A# D#

I’ve tried out some things in the tuning of the song Fearless by Erik Mongrain. I kinda like the drive of the chorus but I’ll see if it could make it to a complete song. The chorus also reminds me a little bit of some existing song that I can’t really remember.

Tuning: D A B F# A E

Still don’t get Antoine Dufour’s Air Ground out of my head so I just tuned to this tuning and tried to come up with some new ideas. One of them is here to hear.

Tuning: Eb Bb C G Bb D

In preparation for an upcoming gig (where I play some ambient piano music) I try to play more piano in the next few weeks.

The last three crafts were in the same tuning and these might shape up to a complete song. I think I drop craft 016 though ;). The idea for the chorus came after watching Antoine Dufour’s song Air Ground. One of my favorite fingerstyle tunes at the moment.

Tuning: C G D# G C D#

Same tuning as yesterday. Still missing a melody but could be a grooving bridge. The recording was so short I just looped the whole thing twice ;).

Tuning: C G D# G C D#

At the moment not much variety in this idea and the melody isn’t really strong. But I really like the flow ;).

Tuning: C G D# G C D#

Just coughed up the Tuning C G D G A D from a Jon Gomm Tweet. So I tried it out and came up with a first little idea.

Tuning: C G D G A D
