Jaroslawski, Robert - A Sentimental Moment n.4 - Video

Post by rojarosguitar » Tue Feb 07, 2012 1:36 pm

Hello there,

here's a little film with one of my instant or spontaneous compositions. I explore a theme in different ways in several parts, and here's the fourth and last:


Youtube


All these parts reflect the same thematical idea with slightly different atmosphere or mood.

They aren't played perfectly, but then, if I'd wait until I can play perfectly (especially when recording) I might not record at all ...

best wishes
Robert

Excellent robert. Very nice tone indeed. Love the video as well. Thanks for posting.
Great recording with the Tascam DR40, just shows what can be done. Great playing.

Hello Robert, I just listened to your recording over the speakers of my computer. My wife was in the room and asked me: "What are you listening? That sounds lovely!" So, double compliments from me and my wife! :bravo: :merci:

Congratulations on creating such a lovely piece of music.
It always amazes me as to how much beauty can come from the heart and be expressed so exquisitely with fingers on a guitar.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to hear a part of that beauty.
:merci:

Nice piece, and nicely played! I see from a previous comment that you recorded this on a Tascam? Did you use external mics? If you didn't, where did you place the Tascam relative to the guitar? I have a Tascam and the recordings come out sounding trebly and twangy. I thought I had been producing a better tone than that: perhaps I've been kidding myself...😳

Thanks! Yes, this one was recorded while traveling, so I just took the Tascam DR-40 along with me and used it in a quite casual way. What I do is basically this: put the mics in the wide position and the tascam on a tiny camera stand away from the table, higher then the sound hole and pointing slightly downwards so that the diaphragms aren't parallel to the top. The distance is less than a full arm length so that I can start and stop the recorder without much movement. That's basically it...

I think the nice tone is mainly due to a fantastic guitar, as my tone production isn't that great
