Acoustic Harmonics

Story

Unfortunately I have a life long medical condition, haemophilia, which causes problems with joints. Everyone is different, but for me it impacts my elbows. As a result playing guitar can be very difficult, or even impossible at times. Recently I found myself unable to play but in need of some ambient guitar parts. I decided to record some 12th fret artificial harmonics as you can play them 1 handed.

I still don’t have the part I originally wanted to record, but I do have a new instrument, so can’t complain. The following day I repeated the process with my most recent musical purchase, a Yamaha guitalele. Which has a different tone as it is tuned higher, and has nylon guitar strings. To finish everything off I cut a lot of high end from the samples to remove a horrible hiss, and added some reverb (maybe too much..).

I would recommend tweaking the modulation controls (decay, sustain, release, etc.) within Kontakt to get a sound that works for you.

These samples have a perfect blend of usefulness and originality. They sound synthetic, but have a certain organic quality to them that is very intriguing. Liam has created a pair of really playable, inspiring sounds which will be showing up in some new tracks of mine very soon! Thanks so much for your contribution to PianoBook, Liam!

Well done Liam. These sounds and recordings are excellent and very nice reworked! Beautiful dream away sounds if you like! effects (reverb and echo) are set very well and not too much!
I love it!
