Bach, J. S. - BWV 1005 Allegro assai

Post by jaan » Sat May 12, 2018 9:24 pm

Guys,

Not really sure what to say about this one. Haven't recorded myself in a long time; seeing this forum as an opportunity to motivate myself to do so regularly and hopefully get some consistency back in my playing.

For now though, the absence of consistency is quite apparent. Please forgive the buzzes, inconsistencies in articulation, random notes that are too loud or too bright, etc. :roll:

But, in spite of all that, I hope you enjoy. It's a great work, after all.

Jaan

Fantastic, very virtuosic stuff and some of the finest music ever written. Which of your guitars did you record it with ?

Cheers, Gary. This is the 2008 Traphagen. With some pretty dead basses on. . .

What a great Bach work and so challenging. I will never become so proficient as to play this wonderful piece but I enjoy listening your recording a lot. Thanks for sharing!

Here's an updated version to replace the original. Better in some ways, worse in others.

Recorded on my 2010 Pace.

Updated version!

Wanted to re-record because wasn't happy with my playing in the prior versions, and also because I've upgraded my recording setup since my last go round. I also didn't play the repeat on the B section in the prior versions.

Here it is, recorded on my David Pace. Hopefully third time lucky, and hope you enjoy!

[Mods, please replace the original. Thanks!]

Very nice! Out of curiosity, what mic or mics did you use? Sounds good. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work! :merci:

Thank you kindly!

I used an AT2020 and AT 2021, both positioned near the lower bout. Still experimenting with mic placement, but generally pleased with the sound. There's always plenty to tinker with, though!
