First Youtube vid, opinions needed

Postby Kurt Penner » Sat Dec 24, 2016 5:27 pm

This is my recording of Satie Gymnopedie #1. I am new to recording in this way so I am keen to hear opinions. I am aware of some mistakes in the playing but I just wanted to get this out there to gather advice about recording.

My gear:
7 string McConnell guitar
Neumann KM 184 mic (single)
Zoom H5 field recorder
Reaper Audio DAW with convolution reverb applied lightly

Camera:
Samsung Galaxy S7

For an amateur I am rather pleased with the results.

Hey Kurt, that was beautiful. I think the recording sounds high quality, captures the sound of the guitar well. The guitar has beautiful tone and both the trebles and basses come out nicely. I think your playing was quite good as well and definitely brought out the feel that Gymnopedie is known for. I'd probably prefer a touch less reverb to get a more natural sound, but that's just me. Keep on recording!

It's good and done well. Nice sounding guitar. The videos are very good quality. Keep posting because that's how to get more subs, but of course the most important thing is to enjoy, posting videos is like an accomplishment.
