Title: Recording video and audio direct to Sony NEX 5 camera using Larrivee LV 09 guitar
Post by: USNavySeniorChief on March 13, 2015, 12:33:39 AM
Just trying out new ways to share Larrivee sound clip and videos online. This is my first attempt so please... be gentle. LOL!!!

Here's the link: (Please use headphones or external speakers for better audio)

Camera - Sony NEX 5 (guitar recorded direct to camera's internal mic. BTW, sorry for the background noise)
Video editor - iMovie
Guitar - 2012 Larrivee LV-09 (March 2015 GOTM)
Strings: D'adarrio 80/20 lights

I realized that I really struggle at explaining how Jean's guitars sound like so I figure it's better to share it this way. I'm also currently working on ways to improve video and sound quality uploads to YouTube so, I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!!!  :cheers

Sweet sounding guitar.  Well-played.  Would be nice to see both hands at work in the next one.  Thanks.

Noted! I'm planning on using my MacBook's camera paired with Logic Pro X and an AKG 214 condenser mic next. I think I have the right gear, all I need now is... talent!!! LOL!  :guitar

This particular Larrivėe never fails to amaze me. It really sings when pushed but can sound pretty sweet when played lightly.

Don't sell yourself short.  I heard talented playing.  You are way ahead of me in fingerstyle playing.  Looking forward to the next one.

I currently have this SD-60 on loan from a friend, maybe I'll do this one next. The sound on this guitar is HUGE! I currently have it on open G so I could "attempt" to play bottleneck type blues on it.

Here she is:

I love the SD-60's sound but I'm having a little difficulty trying to get use to the wider neck.

I have so many guitars with different string spacings at the nut, that  I can't even decide which one I like the best.  I find that if you are set on using a certain guitar for a certain performance or recording, you just have to practise with it long enough to make it work.  It's amazing how your fingers will get used to a different spacing if you play it for awhile.  Of course, when you switch to another one, you have to do it all over again.  I find the biggest adjustment is going from an acoustic to an electric and vice versa.
