    Arrow "Take Your Pick"

    All,

    I present my duo for the unusual combination of acoustic guitar (Kontakt) and harpsichord (GPO).

    This is "Take Your Pick".

    Regards to everyone,

    Hi Larry,

    Another fine piece from you. What an interesting combination of instruments! Some great detailing on the guitar there with fret buzzing and the fingers sliding on the strings.

    I am surprised at how well this works. And it is a lot of fun too. I really like the various accents used throughout.

    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Larry,

    This was definitely an inimitable Larry Alexander work, right down to the last tongue-in-cheek strummed guitar chord! I wondered before listening how the combo would work, but the attack settings for guitar melded seemlessly with percussiveness of the harpsichord -- you even made the contrasting tonal colors fit; it worked!

    What made it work more than anything, of course, was your playfulness, imagination, just a slight hint of cynicism and your wonderful compositional talent. Great stuff again, Larry!

    Interesting combination, Larry. Very nice work with the
    guitar in this. The mechanicals (slide noises on the strings,
    etc.) add a great deal to something like this... very effective.

    A fun one to listen to.

    Did you turn JS into a guitar strummin' good old boy or something like that?

    Anyway, it was great and made me smile.

    Your right about this being an unusual combination, but it does sound good. A nice choice for acoustic guitar. I have not been real pleased with the jabb acoustic guitar sound. This one sounds pretty good. Thanks for posting.
