4 Friends Suite

December 27, 2020 11:12 AM

4 short tunes I wrote and recorded as Christmas gifts for some close friends, arranged in a "suite" of sorts.

Since none of my friend group could travel to be with family this holiday, I wrote some short tunes for them. The pieces, in order, are Marc's Song, TextKyle, Alice en tune, and MSCASS (some inside jokes there in the names). I used my 1940s Epiphone archtop, my Huss and Dalton 00-SP, a New World Nylon string, National Resonator, and my Ome tenor banjo. Recorded with an AKG C414, usually paired with a direct pickup signal (from the guitars anyway). Some funniness with plugins here and there, but mostly strict EQ, compression and reverb.
