First time messing with my electric guitar in public. I kind like it, and so shall forego my acoustic guitar for the next few times, barring any surprise visits from the piano. Featuring my first performance of The Blue Professor, and other oldies: Redneck Vacation, Congratulations, and Chinese Buffet.
I won’t gush about how awesome Bowie is. This year, I have embraced the “Bowie Week” thing that seems to be picking up steam here in Philly and learned Kooks from the album Hunky Dory. Check it out; great fun!
Though I awkwardly sat on a tall barstool, I’m pleased with this performance. The percussion accompaniment? Meh. 🙂
Hey now! I wanted to share this bit of nerdy audio mixing fun… In this video, I demonstrate how I separated a single percussion instrument recorded as a mono track into two distinctly panned tracks. The percussion instrument is slingshot-shaped, with a shaker and a wood block sound. This might be applicable for multiple percussion instruments recorded with a single mic, too, in a pinch.
