    Blue Note Samba - Jazz Strad and guitar

    And now for something completely different....

    I played and recorded the nylon string guitar part ('non midi' for a change) of this a couple of years ago - testing out the audio on my new DAW system. Just recently, I then decided to remix it and add a bit of jazz violin á la Stradavari Garritan for some tonal contrast.

    As always - any suggestions, comments are always welcome.

    Please NOTE: The mp3 link has been updated to include most if not all of the suggestions put forth by those who commented. Thanks Again!

    Good sounding audio - PLEASE quantize the shaker (high hat?) with the kick drum and get rid of the panning. It makes me dizzy listening to it. I'd like to hear more panning separation between the two guitar tracks, too.

    That's some nice guitar and "fiddle" playing, Mr. Del.

    You could stretch out your ending just a tad.

    Good work!

    Wow, some really fine guitar action on this, Del... and
    the Strad lines fit in there like hand in glove.

    Nice job!

    Only suggestion I'd have is maybe a little less left foot
    in the first part?

    All my best,

    David - thanks for stopping by and giving your invaluable and balanced feedback-appreciated! Maybe I'm wrong, but there don't seem to be too many jazz fans/players in this forum. If correct, I guess it makes sense since GPO was the main package.

    Jeez Paul - Sorry! I thought I had already thanked you and the others - way too busy these days! Yes the rhythm is not quite perfect in places. Never had a lot of success with quantising especically with audio involved but I'm sure I could fix it up somehow. Sorry to hear you did not like the panning. Coming from mostly a rock world it does not bother me as much I guess. It was not done manually but by rotation. If you listened with headphones it probably would be a bit much. Anyway, thanks for dropping by and making your invaluable suggestions - appreciated! - Del

    I agree,lose the panning.

    Larry - Thanks for your kind words and suggestions Mr. Larry. I was toying with the idea of adding an interactive solo between the guitar and violin but ....I'd rather just compose another new piece...if I had the time of course.

    GOOD!! I only hated that Left-Right switching... I thought I was going mad.
    Nevertheless, more of this..

    Hi Del,

    Outstanding work on this; I really enjoyed your guitar work and the way you incorporated the Strad.

    I do agree with Paul that the panning is a little distracting. This music is so good, just finding a good seat for each instrument in the stereo mix is all that's needed. I've heard some pieces in which rotated panning appeared to be an intentional distraction away from ho-hum music -- and this is anything but! Paul was also correct, I think, on the hi-hat bass drum timing -- tightening that up a bit would make this already sparkling piece shine even more. Those are merely some technical adjustments, though -- creatively, musically this is just outstanding stuff!

    Thanks for bring some more jazz -- some quality jazz -- to the forum!

    Del

    Some real nice playing in this, but I do have to ageree with everyone else and say that the panning got to me as well.

    The strad sounds great with your live playing.

    Very nice
