Coste, Napoleon - op.51/01 Barcarola

Post by tateharmann » Thu Jul 18, 2019 5:50 pm

I'm still on the hunt for the perfect string (other than plain gut - those are the best) for playing without nails. These are a set of Aquila Alabastro - I'm really liking these...and I know now to wait a while before saying that because strings tend to change a lot as they stretch. These have been on my Redman guitar for over a month now so I think the sound is going to stay more or less this way. They are very loud, nice and bright, and easy to dig into with the fingertips for a beautiful tone.

I recorded this famous little Coste Barcarola over lunch today. No reverb, amplification, or other effects...just the straight sound off of the guitar and into the Tascam. Tuning is A=435hz.

And here's another take with the usual treatment I give it.

Honest response - I like both of them, but prefer the first without the "usual treatment". Just another opinion :D

Nice playing!

Nice sound (speaking about the untreated sample)!

That's good to know - thanks! Maybe that will be the my new default for recordings: raw and uncut.
