Liner Notes: 

So last weekend I picked up yet another guitar. I only have one acoustic guitar, a big old Gibson that sounds great. But. I wanted something contrasting. So the new guitar is a Breedlove, a small-bodied thing with a short(er) scale length. It has a sweet tone. I put some new Thomastik-Infeld strngs on it today.

So this song is kind of a nothing, random bits on a new guitar. Then a melody. Then some fake strings.

I always have trouble naming instrumentals. So the Titular tool here on 50/90 gave me something "spark" and then I thought, well, it's a minor ish melody. So maybe it's a "down" spark.

Anyway, here it is. Tomorrow is the last day, but I have the whole day off, and hope to get AT LEAST ONE MORE DONE. We'll see.


Nopity nope nope.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Whatever it is, it's very pretty and very enjoyable to listen to.

This is gentle and calming and believe me, that's just what I need right now. And hooray for new gear!

Perfect for the end of 50/90. Beautiful. Smile

That does have a really beautiful tone, great mids/highs and not too much low end to make for some easier recording. Sounds like a nice crisp "dry" recording without a lot of eq magic added, so going to assume it sounds about the same in room, great buy! Breaking in a new acoustic is probably one of my favorite things, and now you're giving me GAS, I only have one steel string as well right now a pretty cheap Ibanez thing, that works, and after a lot of work its got a great setup and plays as nice as any Taylor that its modeled after, but I'm not in love with it.

I've tried the roundwounds of those strings before as not a lot of companies make them anymore, and almost hard to find unless internet shopping(I try to avoid if possible) I didn't like them as they were too low of a gauge for my liking, but sounded great.

Lovely bit of playing here as well! Guitar will sound really great once it starts opening up. Congrats!

Quite enjoyable listen. Love acoustic and the sparkle of new strings is nice on my ears. I'm a fan of smaller body guitars. Hope you enjoy your new one.
