...And yes, that guitar sound. How'd you get it? Jazzmaster? What pickups? Neeeed to knooooww!
The guitar is my 'new' '66 JM I bought from Jaguar018, with the original pickups. The thing is just amazing, I can hardly put it down. The strummed guitar in the end is actually my Telecaster plugged directly in, pretty raw. I don't think I did too much to its signal, just hit record and left it.
my bloody television wrote:Nice man, I really liked that. Your voice reminds me a lot of Elliott Smith. I especially love that last chord you hit on the guitar
Sparklehorse and Elliott Smith are both huge idols of mine, so those are massive compliments! I emailed this to a friend of mine and he said it sounded like Radiohead and Beck covering "Good Vibrations"...imagine the smile on my face reading that.
The 'analog keyboard' sound Axolotl mentioned is actually my Rhodes 73 Mk I running through my Germanium 4 and Memory Boy. No other effects were used IIRC.
Anyway, I really do appreciate your kind words and input. I never really allow myself/give anyone the opportunity the chance for anyone to hear my music, so I find this incredibly humbling and nerve racking. I normally keep these things close to my chest, holed up in a computer in my little studio.
My above-mentioned friend has been yelling at me for years to get off my ass and do something about it.
Never half-ass two things, whole-ass one thing.
