LC classical midi guitar & Roland GR-55

Been putting a lot of time into this new guitar. It's exceeded my expectations. Put it this way...the guitar handles everything I throw at it to the point I'm not thinking about the guitar and all my energies are
allocated to the creative process.

I'm using a bass patch I built on the Roland GR-55. The response of the piezo pickups have performed above my expectations. Unless a patch has a slow attack, there's been no latency that I've noticed and little to no false triggering. It is so wonderful to finally have such a great next generation tool when it comes to midi guitar and nylon strings.

It's a coupler that really allows a guitarist to extend their musicianship far, far beyond what one could hope to do with a standard guitar. Hey...why should keyboard players get to play with all the cool toys? If you could hope that your instrument might give you the freedom and depth comparable to a keyboard synth...this is it.

It's a great time to be a guitarist with a broad imagination.

In closing, I'm tickled stupid how incredible and beyond my hopes this instrument performs. Next generation...and lovin' it!

La Cumparsita performed by David Irish and Dino Rhelos of Le' Nuages (circa 2000)

Get Lucky - Daft Punk (bass part)

A one-off using a GR-55 bass patch. I was able to detune the guitar through the GR-55 so the whole guitar is in Bm without touching a tuning peg. Remarkable gear! I was able to detune the guitar through the GR-55 so the whole guitar is in Bm without touching a tuning peg. Remarkable gear!

Teen Spirit (jazz waltz) -- test run

Using the new L.C. Classical midi guitar and the Roland GR-55.

Most takes are one-offs. Did this quick just to get the feel of all the new gear. Amazing just how much more efficiently and faster everything is coming together.

Maybe I should keep a shirt and hat ready, especially if everything is going to start moving more quickly.

Just Funkin' Around

Got the backdrop curtains put up in the studio...finally. It makes the studio more comfortable and inspiring to work in.

So, I had been practicing for about 12 hours prior to recording this. Pretty tired by this point, but wanted to capture something with the new backdrop.

This is the last 9 1/2 minutes of a 20 minute jam. It's been awhile since I've done some strict left hand working out. So, I muted the strings and went skating.

The two scene at the crossroads. First, when Willie Brown makes the deal. Second, when Lightning Boy agrees to cut heads to save Willie's soul.

Got Nails?

Been practicing about 10 to 12 hours a day recently in preparation for demonstrating a new nylon string classical midi guitar.

When I'm playing fingerstyle more often, I normally get acrylic nails. They're the most durable considering I'll destroy glue-on nails or my own in a matter of hours.

Here I don't have the nails yet, so I have to use more of the flesh of the finger to strike the note. This slows me down and wears on my fingertips. With the nails, instead of catching the string with the fingertip, the fingertip acts as an antenna that lets me know my finger is just touching the string. Then by simply closing the finger, the nail catches the string. This improves the clarity, volume, and speed.

A little Latin motif, theme, or ditty as some might say. Probably have some suds and do somethin' with it. Saludo! ūüćĽ
