Surf Rock-Holy Ground/Orig & Cover/REAPER

Post by surfercook » Thu May 19, 2016 8:43 pm

Ok, I REC'd a coupla quick jams to get some groove . Had been a while. These two took about 4 hrs total.
"Surf Rock Loop" is my "Endless Summer" kinda theme.
"On Holy Ground" is a fingerpicking study using a cut capo w/some improvised leads over it. I also improvised a few chords w/the capo. Interesting tuning- Open Esus
To make life easy I combined both tunes into one file.

Hope everyone is well!
surfercook :D

Very good guitar sounds and playing and clever orchestration in the surf piece, though the tuning/intonation is a bit suspect sometimes. The acoustic piece I'd prefer with the fingerstyle in the foreground but that's just me being more into fingerstyle, pretty melody!

Which hand did you injure, your fretting hand or your picking hand? If it was your fretting hand, it's extraordinary that it still sounds as good as it does. If it's your picking hand I can see how you can work around it. Either way, I'm glad to see you can still play and make it sound great.

I liked the electric guitar on the first one (and the acoustic guitar rhythm) and very nice playing on second one. I wish you would have blended the two a little for a smooth transition. Nice work.

Hey Marc,
I like both pieces. In my head phones I can hardly hear what's behind the lead git on the first track. I dig the tone though. The picking on the second is outstanding! I don't know that tuning or what cut capo is, but I like it. Glenn

Very clear guitar sound, I like it. (Quite a bit too loud in the mix, though, that lead guitar). Nice jam.

As others have already said, good guitar sound.

Lovely acoustic picking and strumming (not as easy it might sound) :)

Thanx Greenie, vocie, Lungfruit, Cracks, M.T., and dickl for checking out my little REC's. I def put more time into practicing them than the actual RECs.

My ring finger on my left (fretting) hand. Quite frustrating and sometimes the swelling and pain are quite bad. It's been over seven months now and I don't see it being healed any time soon. Some one told me it was two yrs b4 their dislocated finger was proper.

I broke my index finger on my left hand 30 years ago. It's still crooked and I can't play a barre properly even now :( it stopped being painful after a couple of months but the strength never really returned. It doesn't stop me playing but it's irritating not being able to make a solid barre on the acoustic.

Great guitar playing and sounds as always. On the first track I found the rhyhtimc playing in the background quite distracting, because it was mostly scratch noises that were not fully in time I guess.

I think I prefer the second one. Very atmospheric and moody, great combination of the warm strumming and the clean lead tones.

Bye Wolfi
