Suzy Q (suitcase version) - patron exclusive download
My dearest friends, On the eve of my pending busking tour from Spain to the UK, I have decided to leave my trusty Wavedrum behind and replace it with..... .... and old suitcase! Here is a first full song for your enjoyment (hopefully) and I would love to know what you think. The suitcase gives my looper grooves more definition and it also makes them more understated, further highlighting my love for geniuses such as JJ Cale. I immediately loved the millions of sounds I can get from the old suitcase, using my hands, fingers, beaters and brushes. Because of its fairly irregular shape, every bit of its surface has a different resonance. It is extremely responsive to how I play it. It took me a while to work out how to mic it up the best way. I hung a mike inside it, but that started feeding back at volume, and there were certain unwanted bumps in the frequency pattern. I ended up cutting a small circular hole in the back, to let the air escape and to be able to position a mic there and now it behaves brilliantly. The miked up sound that goes into the looper is almost exactly like the acoustic sound I love so much. Anyway, I hope you like it as much as I do. I hope you can take the time to watch some of the live broadcasts from on the street, on my travels from Spain to the UK. Thanks to Greys' superior detective skills, we are now linked to the net from anywhere, via a mobile data modem. Exciting times! :-D
