Cape Cod Girls (new version)
I was just experimenting with a new arrangement for my cheap condenser mics to try to get better acoustic instrument sound. I think I got on to something I like better. Anyway, fooling around with it, and with this traditional sea shanty (and a bottle of wine) I made it into less of a work song and more of a deck-dance. It’s pretty sparse and primitive: only a banjo, abanjo pot banged like a bodhràn, a set of old brass keys, and me vocal cords, such as they be at this season of the year and general time o’ life.
