Title: "Things I've Seen" Also from the Farmer's Market show
Post by: dberch on June 30, 2006, 02:52:59 AM
Another recording from the same show.  This is one of mine.  I gotta tell ya ... I'm really enjoying jamming with Brian Stear, the harmonice player.  I just found out yesterday he once toured with Koko Taylor!  I feel so honored that now he wants to do acoustic stuff with me.

Things I've Seen (http://mywebsite.register.com/db3/00256/davidberchtold.com/_download/ThingsIveSeen128bit.mp3) (MP3, 4.4 meg)

Listen for the part in the first break where my guitar goes away for a second... That's were I turned to Brian with my mouth hanging open, and I just plain forgot to play!

Hope you like it.  This one of the most fun shows I've ever done. And I'm planning to do more with Brian.

Sounds great! My only negative comment is that your lead vocal is buried in the mix...it could be about twice as loud.
What pickup do you have, on which Larrivee? It sounds like the factory B-Band to me.

Thanks, Doug.  Actually, the guitar is neither Larrivee - it's "Old Reliable" - my 15 year old Ovation Elite played through a Boss AD-8 acoustic processor.  It was too hot and humid to sweat all over my Larrivees.  : )  You're right about the vocals. I'm always self-concious about my singing so I compensate by not turning up loud enough.  I'll have to watch that.

David, I second the recommendation for bringing the vocals up. The AD8 does a great job of smoothing out the Ovation sound.
