    These are the first professional recordings I have ever done and I was nervous as hell.
    Just sat down and went S.O.C.. only one take as I did not have the guts to do more.
    I can sail a sailboat through a hurricane but the Microphones scared me to death.
    I just wanted to give an idea of what the Ramuda sounds like.
    Please forgive the missed notes and chords…..putting this out to you professional musicians is daunting.

    Thanks Mate……I’m still scared S-less at the thought of doing that again…….I like sitting on my back porch and playing for myself.

    Just a Note about strings on the guitars.
    SC 1934, Martin and SC F….SCGC Mid Tension.
    OM and H O.T. . SCGC Lite Tension.
    ALL strings were put on guitars 3 months ago within a day of each other.
    I would guess about 10-15 hrs. of play time on all sets.
    The SCGC strings are well worth the money.

    Look at it this way zorro…  Now your family will have a record of you doing something.  They’ll know that’s you when the play it.

    I was adding an emando part to a track a couple months ago.  Just a little harmony part.  Didn’t even go into the Studio.  Sat in the control room.  Oh man.  Talk about red light fever!

    I had to pretend I was on stage to let go of the fact I was sitting in the control room!

    You can pretend you’re anywhere you want to be when you record.

    zorro, you”ve got some very good rhythmic chops. All three guitars sound excellent with you driving. I understand how you feel, sometimes it can be daunting. About 20 years ago I joined a songwriters group that featured a number top amateurs and pros, shaking like an ice cube on my first go. It does get better as you move along.

    thanks for the cool tunes, bert
