Tárrega, Francisco - ¡Adelita! Mazurka - D07

Post by wolfgang » Mon Jun 12, 2006 9:26 pm

Well, this is my Adelita. I want to share some new pieces and make a quick start with something nice and lovely - and not yet boring. Ok, its rather a test of my new equipment for recording and only a really quick take, but today I received the last cable I needed and now everything works! Yuhu :D

This is done with a (bit crappy) classical silent guitar from e - b a y. So it sounds a bit like the piezo pickup and not much more. But the next recording will be with my real guitar, I promise, and a new mic, which I'm also proud of...

Very nicely played... It's interesting to hear one of those silent guitars... Look forward to hearing it with the new gear... :wink:

Joy in the music
Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.

Hi, thanks for your comments Azalais and owl. I'm happy you enjoyed listening to it. Recordings with the new gear are coming soon.

The guitar is a model called "Arrow". I didn't find any info on the maker in the web. The nice ones like Yamaha or Frameworks have been way too expensive for me. Nevertheless I much more enjoy playing on the real guitar, but its harder to record. The thin sound may also be because of rather old strings. I don't change them often on this silent guitar, because its really just for practicing around.

Ashkuruka shukran jazilan fEZ! Not the first time I get a comment about "jazzy" sound. Maybe I could build some repertoire in that direction. But might be a long way to go until I could play something like your very enjoyable, very jazzy :D videos

if i well understood, you recorded and played on a silent guitar ...if it is : really beautiful for sound & interpretation...as you said adelita allows many possible ways of playing...yours is :okok: on this material

Merci jarods! Yes, it's been played on a silent guitar. I've to change strings, then it sound much better.

hum :wink: your strings are very correct indeed, when i listen to the result ...the recording you employed has been performant ... 8)

Hey Wollfang you play this great - nice flow and feel, I really enjoy it :okok:

I like the sound of the silent guitar, it's very clear and mellow sounding. It definatly has a jazzy slightly amped sound to it. Some Joe Pass type stuff would sound cool on it.

I'm going to record this one next but I gotta practice more - I always mess up those reverse mordents in the second part :D

Thanks for this! :casque:

I loved your playing of this piece. I've been thinking about working on it myself and I've heard a few muddy recordings lately that put me off. Having heard your version, I am eager to tackle it myself. Many thanks!

Hey, Vesuvio! Thanks! What I can play as a bloody beginner is accessible to just anybody no matter of level! Just a matter of practice. Go for it!!!
