My favourite Leon Redbone song. I recorded the basic vocal and guitar with my Sony Minidisc recorder and a Sony stereo mic - and put a guitar input into my 8-track - then mixed it all down in Garageband. The extra guitar input was to give me more latitude over the vocal/guitar balance. The YouTube version is at:

She Ain't Rose - Youtube version

The higher-quality version is on Vimeo at:

She Ain't Rose - Vimeo version

I've put a little fingerpicking into this using triplets with the thumb and 1st & 2nd fingers. I shall attempt to get some tab up for the tune, just to demonstrate the technique, if anyone's interested.

Cheers,

Will

I'm using the built-in Baggs pickup in the OM-03RE - this goes via my Line6 Pod into a Roland VS840ES 8-track digital recorder (superseded now but still  great recorder). I dumped the Minidisc track and the Roland track into my Mac Book Pro using Audacity and Garageband, synched them up and created the mp3 soundtrack. Fed this into iMovie along with the DVD video - then synched up the audio and video in iMovie. Saved as a high-quality Quicktime file and uploaded into YoTube and Vimeo. YouTube gets the mass viewing but Vimeo gives much better quality.
