I am working on a contract for a fingerstyle guitar player. Last week, I went to his house and recorded 4 pieces that he had composed. He is not a professional, but he wants to have the pieces orchestrated as a gift for a friend. Right now, all I have is a recording of the guitar part. How would you go about adding orchestration to something like that?
All I know about the pieces (other than listening to it) is that the guitar was tuned in a drop \"D\" major tuning.
So far, what I have done is to set up GPO with some string patches and improvise on the keyboard while listening to the guitar. This is working and I am satisfied with the results, but it is kind of time consuming and hit or miss.
What would you do?
