Guitar Shimmers

An ambient guitar instrument created with a Dan Electro U2 using a cello bow, an eBow, and a volume pedal....

The story

I created a little ambient guitar library using my Dan Electro U2 through my old Fender, Memory Man and various other gadgets. I plucked strings, used a cello bow and E-Bow and a volume pedal. I reversed some of them, stretched others, and used a Line 6 Particle Verb for an octave overtone and wobble.

  • Organic texture of warm pad

    Another beautiful pad of Joshua. It does no longer sound of a guitar, it is like a very distant calling from somewhere or like an organ sound. I instantly thought of some music when I pressed the keys.

  • Shimmers for the Shivers!

    I really, really like this instrument. Joshua has done an excellent sampling job on this one. Each of the patches offer something different, often offering a nostalgic vibe from the 80s - at least that's what I felt. While there are no controls at all, I feel that it is very playable, though some control settings wouldn't be bad to exist, like ADSR for example.

  • Love the tremolo!

    can be used in many different situations, it can fit perfectly in dramatic music but also for ethereal ambient.
