Acoustic and live performances

Recommended Posts

Personally I prefer live recordings of tracks, and if I find an album version of a song I like I immediately go on the hunt for a live, acoustic or unplugged recording. 

Share your favourite Acoustic & Live Performances of songs you enjoy here...


Guitar at the end of this one may just get @jhn.holgate jamming in his studio...

Something that's living on my playlist...  

The cello guys are very good.... i'll give them that,  but these finnish hillbillys,  IMO... are better.  

Joe Satriani 2006

Clive, brilliant piece of music. Was he using some sort of pluctrum, sorry don't know the technical term, one ones with a ring that you can sucure to your finger(s), because the sound was so sharp and crisp, don't sound like it came just from bare hands.


PS. Just listened to looper from John, great way to have a one man jam session. I have some rather old equipment, Logic before they went to Mac on a Win98 system, too often than not, I get caught up in the technical woos then loose all the inspiration ... keep plugging away though. On my wish list, Pro Logic on the Mac, lots of loop capabilites, design your own synths.

Norm , as far as I'm aware just fingers, but he's fairly strong with the finger work, I've watched him play live and saw nothing then either,  he has broken a number of guitars, hes not gentle with them ( understatement) The guitars aren't cheap, fortunately he gets them for nothing, the neighbour used to be the factory floor manager for Maton, and myself and a friend got the guided tour through the whole process, he works for Cole Clark now. Apart from promoting their products he gives them a hard workout to make sure they are up to it. 

I have a DVD and its fingers only as far as I can tell.

Not your usual rock musician........ He must have an amazing memory.


Q .Whats the difference between a rock guitarist  and a jazz guitarist 

A. A rock guitarist plays 3 chords to thousands of people, a jazz guitarist plays 1000s of chords to 3 people.

They're good, I think they nail Smooth Criminal really well. Budget is blown by a factor of 2, no 2cellos at our reception :D 

Here's Sam Westphalen, if you listen to Tool you'll really enjoy his cover of Lateralus.  Otherwise for something that more people may of heard, here's MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This.

      Well i thought i'd better write my 1st review, if not at least to let you know my experience but to get a smiley face lol! so here goes, BEAMER 2.5.

      After waiting in for 2 days for the kite to be delivered, my fella chased it up only to find out they had been trying to deliver to his house, so a mad rush down to the parcel office and everything was looking good for the weekends activities!

      We had read many reviews on the kite thanks to you guys and decided this would be good for me to play with while my partner peaty flew the blade 4.9.

      EXCITED was not the word as i no longer had to sit and watch, i'd tried the blade and it was just too much for me recently having had an operation (not due to kiting) so gets down the beach, perfect weather maybe not quite windy enough, peaty set the kite up and launched within 5 mins or so, straight out of the bag.

      The kite spun round and crashed, reset the brakes and again the same, 3rd time lucky we got it right and it went up like a graceful bird, (instant smile) great my turn now, i was very surprised at what pull it had, great fun unfortunately the wind didn't last long but had about 20 mins or so and came away as proud as punch having had a good time with no incidents lol. Turned very fast and really nippy!

      The packaging was excellent and for all the comments on the big zip thing, i thought it looked quite groovy!!! only a little awkward to get back up once pulled down, as you have to do!!! winder and lines were good and strong, ground stake really good too.

      Bag itself great what can i say,mega amount of room in there, could have taken the kitchen sink too! Well sewn and lovely and rattly, fantastic, good value for money and will stop me moaning now because i'm not watching peaty have all the fun!!! 10 outta 10.

      Haven’t posted in while been busy more with music compositions, but still kiting and slope soaring my gliders with my son Zachary here in Christchurch.
      The Distraction by Norman Freund
      Special thanks to my son Zachary for helping out with the time lapse pre-processing and advice during the music production.
      No I have not switched to LEI’s ha ha, some one else kiting in the beach scene.
      Hey  @bakersdozen, thanks for putting me on to the Reaper DAW (Digital Workstation). Takes a bit to get used to it to feel free enough to be creative with it. I tried putting the video together with  Adobe Premier Elements, very clunky, wrecked the quality, too slow …. . So I thought why not try the video editor that comes with the music DAW, Reaper, hey not bad. Cutting up the video segments and synchronising with the music phrases is simple in Reaper since your composition is already there with all the cues and midi notes. The video quality in Reaper is good too.
      Hope you like it.

      So it's always easy posting a song you like from a band that originally wrote it, what about when you come across a cover of a song which in your opinion is even better than the original or perfectly on par?  Share some of the covers you've come across.
      Here's Jamie N Commons with a cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here."
