  • solo guitar - transitioning from treated to live performance

    I was reminded of this piece after listening to ZachZinn's live guitar here http://www.ambientonline.org/forum/s...ake-recordings

    I've not been a performer - just a few times and mainly playing other people's stuff in experimental / classical settings. But I regret that I didn't find a way to perform more often. (Hard for many from other countries to understand but where I grew up, a city of 1 million people, there wasn't single jazz venue and only one hotel that played anything local other than pub rock, so it was difficult to find venues outside of people houses - which I did play at) Anyway, enough grumpy old guy shit - here's a piece from a single performance that starts out edited and treated and gradually becomes completely live playing by the end

    Really nice. I wish there was video as I'm intrigued now, much prepared-ness going on?

    Sucks about clubs in your locale, the little bit of sprawl I live in (three main towns all slowly merging...) is ~130,000 yet has a couple of places where you could probably get away with this kind of stuff on the right night.
    Latest release: never to be repeated

      Hi GaryG - thanks for listening and glad you enjoyed. It's a while since I played this piece but most likely I was using nails and things through the strings as well as a coathanger or similar that I would tap and it would wobble for quite a while. Also at that time I was using the whammy bar a lot, often tapping on the fretboard or manipulating the strings with both hands while using my elbow on the whammy. I would have been playing this with the guitar flat on my lap
