New song....in DADGAD!

Postby M@rkus » Thu Aug 01, 2019 3:20 am

Hi again!

Had to take down the song from Soundcloud because someone spammed the comment section, so I posted it on Hearthis instead!

This is my first attempt to make a song in an alternative tuning (dadgad)! I watched some you tube videos to get some tips and inspiration. All of the videos made it very clear that this was a tuning you didn´t use for strumming, but for finger picking.... What can I say? I happily strummed away!

The acoustic guitar I used was my Applause bowl back, which I both miced and lined, and then double tracked to get a real spacey sound!

The drums are wave samples.
Thanks for listening!

Thanks a lot, freightgod! Yes, hearthis is a good alternative to sSoundcloud. My Soundcloud account is full anyway, so I needed an alternative. I´m not so sure about how many people actually listens though..
