Hi Peter,
Thank you for your comment. It's indeed a lovely melody, as a lullaby should be.

My guitar is a Bernabe modelo 40. I played this sul tasto and my nails are shorter than they used to. Together with the dropped D it does give a different sound.

I think it sounds fantastic. You get a nice "sparkle" to your tone even though you are playing sul tasto!!

This recording turned out rather well and I'm glad you like this so much. Zoom H2N, adding of reverb and compression in Audacity, same as I've done with all my latest recordings, so it must be my playing that did the trick here.

What reverb do you apply? I would not have thought of compressing the sound given the already limited dynamics of the guitar - why do you do this and how much?

It's the standard reverb in Audacity. In the picture are the settings of the reverb I use. I duplicate the track, add the reverb to the new one, lower its volume by 7dB and then mix the tracks into one. After that I use compression 2:1. I tried it on a piece and liked the effect, although at first I didn't notice Audacity also normalizes to 0dB at same time. In the screenshot you can see the compressed (first part, including normalizing) and uncompressed (second, with normalizing). I can't see any difference, so maybe I should go back to just normalizing.

Thanks Bert, much appreciated. My experience with Audacity seems to introduce more noise and artificiality than you have achieved. I will try and play with your settings and see how I go. I must admit I don't find it a very user friendly program other than doing very basic stuff.
