Three Sheets To The Wind


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I haven't posted a finger-style guitar track for a while.

Here's one that has been running round my fretboards over the last week :-)

The name comes from the fact that I have to be "three sheets to the wind" to be coaxed up to dance...

My self-made pre-war Martin style 000 instead of the PRS for a change. LR Baggs Lyric p/u into Logic.

Single take. No edits.

See what you make of it.

Take care,

Peter.

Neat picking
and a really full sound from the guitar. Nice to hear an acoustic played well.

Cheers

Doubled and hard panned
Thanks, Dick. Mono input from the p/u, doubled and panned hard left and right gives a nice, full sound. Glad you enjoyed this noodling. Take care.

Three Sheets To The Wind
Lovely tone (warm and clean) and good rolling feel to the playing. A jaunty tune! Beautifully done.

Lyric
Yes, the LR Baggs Lyric is a pretty natural sounding pickup. I kept at this for a while until it finally locked into my fingers. Jaunty is good :-) Talk soon. Thanks.

Peter,
that is some fine noodling. Thank you for the bit of ear candy. I needed that, this evening. :)

Great stuff!
Love finger-style! Would do some of it myself but---although I have the fingers---I have no style! Ha ha...

A truly enjoyable listen!

Be well friend!

Different strokes...
Thanks, Mike. I have never used a pick so I naturally gravitated towards finger-style. Even in the band I'm in where I play electric rhythm and lead, I don't use a pick - because I can't... I tried a few times to master it but I can keep far better rhythm without one so that's how it has stayed. You've showed many, many times that your pick(ing)has plenty of style :-) Glad you liked this ditty. Take care.

When
I was in the military, I went home with a friend when we were on leave. He lived in upstate NY near the Canadian border. He, his girlfriend and I drove up to Canada and he took me to this old, old, very wooden pub that was like stepping back in time. They were playing this style of guitar picking (which surprised me as a Southerner). This just brought a really fond memory.

Nailed it...
Thanks, Sam. You hit the nail right on the head. I'm old, old and stepping back in time :-) I grew up listening to the likes of James Taylor, Ry Cooder, Dave Bromberg et al. so finger-style is where my roots lie. Glad I brought back a fond memory, my friend. Talk soon.

Often in my case...
Thanks, Vic. Yeah, sometimes (often in my case :-)) you just feel like noodling around and hearing the acoustic sing. I appreciate you stopping by. Take care.
