Dowland, John - Fantasia P1a

Post by Michael Butten » Tue Aug 15, 2017 7:36 pm

Hello all! I was recently loaned this wonderful 1975 Jose Romanillos so I thought I'd record Dowland's most famous Fantasia. The microphone on my phone doesn't do the guitar justice, so I'm planning on doing some professional videos. I hope you enjoy this sneak preview!

Sounded fantastic! I was drawn in through the whole piece. Well done. Not bad at all for a phone mic.

No need to apologize for a phone recording! Something performed this well would sound superb even scratched onto an old Victrola cylinder! :bravo:
