WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 24, Butterfly Picking

Week 24 – Butterfly Picking

 

A late night improv on a really niche technique I’ve been practicing with for ages now – this sort of lopsided cascading RH technique. I think it sounds really great with a couple of open strings droning.

Just whatever happened at the time – recorded into my trusty blumlein ribbon mic + a DI with reverb applied.
The simplicity of this recording setup has helped me to learn a bit more about gain-staging / noise floor etc. because the ribbon mic needs to get cranked v hard to get a good level, and there’s nowhere to hide mix-wise.

Also – the buzz/fizzing sound which you might notice is coming from my guitar! I didn’t notice it until only recently, gonna get that fixed up soon smile
Thanks for listening!
