Beautiful. Really pure and natural sounding.
Mind if I ask what kind of nylon string guitar you're playing there?

It's actually a steel-string, a concert-size Alvarez (I think an MF60?) - but the strings are a bit overplayed and I recorded this in the woodiest room of the house (and with my odd preference of a bass pick), so it does sound a bit different.

Wow, that's surprising. Sounds so mellowed out.

Very nicely done. What is the tuning? Tuning the strings low might be part of the 'nylon-string' effect.

umbĂș - it's in Drop-D, capoed to the 3rd fret. My acoustic's also a bit cracked, which might take the teeth out of the sound a bit. the trials and troubles of humidity changes...
