I just bought the “A Integral” Handpan from RAV Vast. I really love this instrument. Though there are limitations in the tone range it’s really beautiful and well crafted instrument wich a rich and deep tone that a Smartphone mic can’t really pic up.
I’ve recorded an idea which is more about the chord movement than about a strong melody.
Tuning: A2 C3 E3 F3 G3 A3 B3 C4 E4
Just tried some tunings and stopped with this one. At first I liked the second part of this snippet but then again, kinda boring and nothing special about it. So will probably discard it.
Tuning: C# G# C# F G# D#
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
I applied for a music university place back in 2007 and this was one of three demo tracks I’ve used for it. It is based on a Don Ross song called “Lucy Watusi” and the song “Passerby” by Dispatch.
Tuning: D A C F C D
I browsed through some old recordings and found this tune from 2007. I just bought a Schlagwerk Cajon in that year and did a test recording along a short Guitar jam with a chorus effect on it. I can’t remember the tuning that I’ve used.
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.
