🤨😍🙁Recording Challenge 80 - Emotions😱🤯😊

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello All, 

I hope you are keeping as well as you can, if you are on lockdown at home or have any free time please join in with our May Recording Challenge. 

🤩🙃😲Emotions😭😎🤣

This Months Recording Challenge was chosen by gotto he said "I think “Emotions “ is a pretty broad theme for musical play. Love, sadness, hope, happiness, loneliness, passion, fears,stress, joy. " Or any others

Participants and other listeners are invited to give some supportive and constructive feedback on the submissions because that is how we learn and grow.

🎸Here is how the Challenge works. The challenge is to record a song which fits the subject (although you are free to post any song even if it does not fit the subject). The names of people who post a song that fits the Challenge subject are put into "Random Picker" and the person which the picker chooses will be contacted by me and asked if they would like to pick the topic for the next Challenge. It is not about being the best it is about joining in and getting your playing heard.

The song Malaguena is covered in Session 5 of the fingerstyle course which is dedicated to classical guitar. I borrowed the old nylon string guitar of my sister-in-law to give it a try.

Malaguena is a Spanish tune and is full of emotion, drama and passion.

Thanks Greg - @gotto - for the great challenge theme.

Wim.

That was exceptional Wim!! I am able to make it through the session 1 version but have miles to go before attempting your version. The nylon strings give an great Spanish vibe to this classical song .  Very cool

@Wim VD1 that was fantastically brilliant.  Note perfect too!  This song has been a very long W.I.P (work in progress) for me.  I am nowhere near your standard, but I working on it!  Well done😊

For this month’s recording challenge, emotions, I am submitting “Ashokan Farewell”.  This song written by Jay Unger is from the Soundtrack of the PBS series “The Civil War”, a film by Ken Burns.  The tempo marks for this song say to play Slowly, with expression, so I think it qualifies for this month’s theme.  I decided to try recording my acoustic guitar with a condenser microphone, not my usual recording practice.  Probably could use some more EQ’ing, perhaps for another version.

I laid down a few tracks using Audacity and decided to play "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" by Van Morrison. Here is the Youtube post and you can see it here:

Please give it a good critique. There were four tracks - bass, acoustic rhythm, electric rhythm and lead on the Gibson ES-150D. I recorded the video using Powerdirector 16. I hope you enjoy it and hopefully we can all learn too. ~Ron Service.
