Hayseed (Woodstock version)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Little known fact: the act between The Who and Jefferson Airplaine at Woodstock, just before dawn, was yours truly: guitapick.

This is my encore. Great memories...

;)

Thanks Feter...this was a blast. I was going to put the tune up on it's own, and probably will one of these days...but this was a really fine springboard.

BTW: headphones bring out the best in this one, folks...catch some subtleties...

Much obliged, bud...please pass the Baked Alaska...

Gotta get Protools...pitch corrector on realtime instruments would be so fine with the slide. Tough to get that glass thang straight at the 12th and above, consistently. But this works fine with a "live" setting...

'course...I could always do another take...practice, practice, practice....

Slide guitar like it was meant to be played.
Fantastic job Bob. You even hit all the notes, or should I say slid up to them. Excellent production and I love the intro, out go on it. Playing Woodstock must have been a blast man.

Thanks Bob, great work here my friend.

You rock, Bob.

...oohhh VERMONT. . . such a great state Be careful of those cows, I lived once in a small house right by a cowpasture. In the pasture was the shed where I had my firewood-U know the young cows which haven't gotten calfs yet yearlings?donno the name in english but they can be very unpredictable ! I never had a problem with'm though. Met a boyfriend that spring(this is waze back when I was 22) who wasn't used to that kind of life....it was a blast when he got the firewood....VERY FAST - he ran & the young cows after....lmao

love this piece, very much. the resonator has a very unique totally american sound....wish i had one....

and it's pronounced DAGostino, not DEEagostino...which is why i never made it to the security tent...i was with a lovely young hippie girl, i was teaching her proper pronounciation.

What Curry Said
The ambience on this is so well done and so amusing in it's own right (you should have a 'no beverages' warning on this one. I almost cleaned my monitor when Fran got called to the security tent) that I'd love you to upload a studio version as well. I love that beautiful harmonic at the end. It's such a nice recording and the guitar sounds just gorgeous.

The whole package is fab. I just want it both ways.
guitapick said 3473 days ago (March 22nd, 2008)
Tsk, tsk, tsk...
...want it ALL do you?

No problem...

It is a nice sound, isn't it? The last thing I was thinking of getting when I ran into it at Mandolin Brothers...the sound grabbed me...

I'll let you know when I post the studio version...that's the way I was going to post it at first 'till I got wind of the Woodstock festival...just couldn't resist this...

Thanks, Lisa...

My only kick...
...about the Radiotone is that the tone's best with medium and heavy gauge strings. Gets tough when I take off the slide. I know that wouldn't bother you very much, as you're used to the heavies...but I'm mostly a classical player...nylon strings...but the sound makes it more than worth the "extra effort"...

Thx for the DL
Fingerstyle and slide... two great tastes in one confection. The crowd obviously digs it. Stay dry, man, and thanks for the download. It's hard to believe this is one guitar track - what tuning ya got here? I'm pretty awestruck by the clean attack. Pitch is fine... but if you want pitch control, GB's had it since 2006, right?

Hey...
...glad you dropped by. I'm in a G tuning. Using steel National fingerpicks and a plastic Pearse thumbpick.

GB's pitch correction is only for the virtual instruments (as far as I know, at least). Realized it wouldn't matter, anyway, though. If I correct a spot, then all the notes will go up or down. Not just the one I'm looking at. Oh well...

Nice job on the inerplay and feedback...
Great job, Bob! Excellent setup for the "pickings"! Very organic in vibe and overall sound. Sent me through the way back machine. I guess I didn't recall that you're as good as this. And it even came w/ a sense of what seemed to be, authentic, humor. All grounds covered.

Kudos to you, my friend.

Dion

PS - It was nice to hear your voice.

Thanks, Dion...
...I'm trying to decide whether to use this version or the straight one (no crowd, etc) on my cd. I might modify it with a shorter "speech", but keeping the crowd noise and the crickets/rooster. I really like the crickets...

Great by all means, I loved your vocal and the way you talked with the fans... KUDOS!

Fun
Funny comments, Bob. Computer music is just a gas.

Am I in Hawaii? Girls doing a hula? Give me some more coconut milk.

Great technique and imagination. Love the EQ on this tune.

And I'm glad to see someone else besides me is still using a G4. Mine just won't die, so I can't buy a new one just yet.

Excellent post, Bob.

And thanks for the favor you did for me yesterday.

"Oh we're goin'...
...to the Hukilau...Huki-huki-huki-huki-huki-hukilau"
(we sang that in a 2nd grade assembly I was in as a kid)

I've been trying to decide whether to put this or a straight version on my cd. Last nite I made a version with guitar, crickets, and rooster (no vox or crowd). Not as funny...but it gives that added dimension of being outside which I really love in this. Think I'm going to go with that version. I tried adding the crowd noise, too...but it sounded "fake" without the vox that made it into a goof.

Thanks for the nice comments, John. The eq does work nicely on this tune...but I really didn't do much with it. Most of what you're hearing's the guitar. It's got a great, great, sparkling tone.

And, yeah: the G4's a workhorse (watch: it'll crash tonite). Got the swivel screen. Added RAM and all...works fine, though I might start using my wife's new MacBook Pro for the portability factor. I like the acoustics in the bathroom...

Gave me lots of pleasure writing that review for your cd. Easy to do, too. It's a great cd.

Hi...
...I'm using a G tuning...in fact, that's all I've used, so far, on my National.

I'll be stopping by your domain, soon. Thanks for the listen.

Oh Bob this is soooo sweet.
Loved the tune, and your plucking as always right on.
The next act was OK but this was tops. Don't know why they didn't clude you in the film man.
Thanks for the memories.

fabulous slide work, my friend! great recording again! is this one take? (ie. your holding down the bass line while doing the slide thing?) impressive! what tuning?

guitapick said 3384 days ago (June 19th, 2008)
Well...
...it WAS a live performance, after all...so of course it's one take...

;)

Actually: Almost all of it's the first take...but I did a second in order to "repair" a 2 second "blip" somewhere in the tune. The bass/mid/treble lines are all one track, though. Play it live all the time. G tuning: DGDGBD

Thanks for the pat on the back. I'll be putting this tune without the crowd noise/"vox" on my cd. I'm leaving the crickets and rooster on there 'cuz they provide an extra dimension which is cool.

I sure like the sound of that guitar, and ditto for the way you play! This has a real laid-back, easy feel, and I love it.
