Guitar stuff

Not posted anything for a bit, as last time after I'd done all my preparation and everything for the show there was a huge powercut in the area of the Union and the stream went down. Fingers crossed it'll be back up for Sunday. If it is I'll be doing the postponed "Best of 2008" type show as promised before Christmas.

Anyway, the last couple of days I've been playing around with Open D tuning on the guitar. For some reason when I was first experimenting with alternate tunings a while ago I never really got into this one, which is a shame as it's really nice. I especially like the ringing low Ds you can get on the bottom string.

I was bored this afternoon so I recorded a quick instrumental in Open D. It's a bit ragged and needs a bit more developing, but hey, I only did 2 takes!

Feedback etc. appreciated.

  2. by the way for anyone else who downloads this you have to change the filename to end in .mp3 before opening
