Great 'offering'. I love your picking style, Bill. And the way you throw some strumming in there -- a nice addition. I really like the mix on this. Just the right touch of reverb. It gives this tune a subtle, dreamy touch -- notes float from your guitar. Makes for fun meditation as I listen to it.

A keeper. File under "That Mean and Clean, West Coast Git-picker."

Thanks Scorp, the mix is with my more bassy mic on the left side. I had to be
careful in how I placed the mcs, not to get to close. Because when you strum you
have to gve some distance to the mics. But then you have to be careful not to
get to far back with the mics or the fingerking will not be loud enough.

Thanks for the post Scorp.

Damn Cool
You put "acoustic" in your keywords twice. :)

What does two mics get you? I've been thinking of doing this, so I can play
with different effects and panning, but wondering why you do it.

You can really play! This piece is way cool and I could dig seeing it live. I
like the pace and am jealous. I'd love to be able to play anything like that!

Thanks Cjorg

I sent you an email in regards to your question. I anybody has any questions in
regards to mic-ing acoustic guitars please send an email. I can explain a little
clearing based on your needs. That is if I can help in any way.

I didn't know that Jimmy Page did much acoustic guitar. But maybe you mean his
over all technique. Either way thanks andrew

great guitar work!
This is some emotional and well executed guitar Playing. Another fine
one. the switch up on the strumming reminds me of Page and Leo Kottke

great guitar work!
Thanks Billl

I guess I get effected by Concierto de Aranjuez, and all the terriic struming in
the beginning (1st movement). I guess in my heart I am trying to do a concerto
piece and put runs and strumming to exmplify Juan Rodirgo's incredible
compositon and ideas.
It is one of many ideas I have in regards to composing on guitar.

Thanks Billl

Bill,

Love the way you can knock out a song like this when you are letting
out the frustration of the day. This had a great room echo/reverb on it
that gave me a psychedelic flashback to the great Jorma Kaukanoen?
playing Embryonic Journey on the Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow
album. Perhaps because of the frustration factor the whole song had a
rock feel to it which I loved. You just keep on keeping on which is what
it is all about!

How do you do it...
I settle in to listen and I ponder, what could he posibly do this time in
creating another piece that will likely be, brilliantly filled with character
and texture, complex, yet simple, distinctly different, and
unmistakably, you ... Bill, you have more flavors of sound and moods,
then i knew one artist might be able to have... Really...

You are one gifted soul and as well, so is anyone who is fortunate
enough to get to be able to hear you on such a regular, and FREE basis.

Thank you

I remain one...
...who enjoys your "deep reverb" pieces...

I, too, hear the echoes of Jorma and of Jimmy Page in this... And some
Kottke...It's cool hearing some strumming alongside the picking...

You keep postin' 'em, I'll keep downloadin' 'em...

Fresh Mountain Air Again
I love the style of your this and your last song, this is so well done. I like
how in some parts you pick the string quite hard and then softer the
second time, and then even softer the third, almost creating an echo
effect.

I listened a few times and downloaded.

thing).

Hey Bill, this is some nice picking again,
has a little "Page" vibe going on which is a good thing.
The sound is very good.
Would put on my ipod but it died today.

Cheers

Joyful and stunning
I wonder where all the Jimmy Page comparisons are coming from?
The drop D tuning?

This is wonderful. You really know how to turn frustration into something
positive! Good for you -- and we, who get to listen.

with amazing speed...
flittering about... from one thing to the next... not much time for
a rest... I know the feeling. Even though the pace of this is frantic,
it still feels calming. Your guitar has a tendency to do that.
