My first attempt at a Blumlein or Mid/Side recording. This one is actually a mid/side recording as I used a directional mic in combo with a figure 8 ribbon mic set at 90 degrees from the main mic. Thanks to Pat Broaders for the loan of the ribbon mics. Recorded sitting in my shop 12 29 2010
Just introduced to your music. This piece is amazing. Thank you!!!
This just carries me away.
Glorious wonderfulness! Bee
Very beautiful fantasy... Sounds GREAT and peacefull. Love it!
Thanks Kirk! I thought the process might start with old boot leather and assorted hoof parts, mix it with snouts and lips and I've got dinner fit for a king
Shame on me for being away so long. I missed such wonderful music like this beautiful song! w;-)
I'm very impressed by your guitar skills. Great work. I'll download some of your songs and put them on my next car CD. Thanks for sharing! :)
great accomplishment! sound is sweet.
this is lovely contemplative and serene.
I really love your sound and playing here. This will be my bench-mark. I will work on my acoustic and try to reach a height such as this, Your song will be my constant inspiration. Thank you good sir. It may take me a while, but your playing here has inspired me.
Off course i wouldn't forget you. what was your address again i seem to have lost it........
...Smoothie stuff, the sound is crisp and outstanding! again this is super cool.
excellent playing and lovely sound
~guitarra - ella como persona, Â¿no?~ ...and: Thank you, Kirk, I know - you're grateful listener.
..again...great playing and feel!
fantastic sound and lovely playing!
Mellow - nice!
Hey Kirk! thanks again for great guitar songs!! how are you doing?
Just amazing sounds and playing!
Yep the left track is the strat copy...middle is the guitar in the pic, my first "frankenstien" guitar, a les paul copy (harmony brand?? i think, been too long since i painted and rewired it) and right track is the jackson. Same amp settings on all three but there are subtle differences in tone. You can really tell it when you crank the gain on them. ;)
Fantastic song Kirk!!
Truly a great guitar player, great track Kirk. Thanks for your comments mate. This is very enjoyable mate.
...so nice here, man.
Damn fine playing man......
I wish my listening gear was better--enough to give you some supportive comment for your recording technique. All sounds wonderful here, and the piece itself is emotive and beautiful. Really enjoyed this. I've met some fine guitar players on my sojour through internet music--you are one of the finest.
The production went over my head but it sounds beautiful.
Ahh, how beautiful is that! Sniffs, wipes eyes and nose!
still diggin this tune.
Great recording and greater playing!!!! So nice!!!
You are dangerously close to being the best ever. Real soothing track Kirk. Nice atmosphere!
Completely gorgeous, emotive and effortless, Sir Filthy Shirker. Seems to me there isn't enough shirking going on, filthy or otherwise. (And Happy New Year!)
Thanks Kirk! I've been messing with that wah tone for a while. I am using my POD XT live, i think it has...5 wah varations? Something like that, and I had one set up for my main guitar a Jackson Dominion (sweet guitar i love it), and when i went to play the lead i thought, well i just got that strat copy lets give it a whirl. I was shocked how those little pickups blasted into the mix. Pretty neat! I guess you can never judge a guitar by the brand name...just the sound. Later!
Holy wow that is an intense acoustic sound. I woul dsay perfect recording, very good job, and what a composition, there is so much air in this piece, and light and even dare I say it, joy. Wonderful song.
This is really beautifull kirk... so so nice..!
Jeebus. And you're envious of _my_ clean tone? Be serious. In '09 sudar and I were yacking about microphones some googling led us to some very high end mics and a guy that uses them: http://www.dougyoungguitar.com/music.php I think your recording is better.
Stunning...(jaw dropped.....)...damn man...
Wow K, great sounding tune. Technically a top recording sound, and great guitar playing too.
Is that the Goodall? Gorgeous!
I agree with the others Beautiful
Beautiful recording, Kirk.
Sounds really good! great playing into the new year! fantastic mood!
great sound and playing, must try that since I have a pair of matched condensers.
