J and J in Irish Zepland

Session template


+ 19
I shouldn’t have upload this,there goes my reputation…the song sounds completely out of tune.
But on the other hand it may give you guy’s some good advice: Don’t buy an instrument you haven’t played!!
I bought this Irish bouzouki at Thomann, brand name Thomann!? So it must be made in some East-European country.
The sound is more then O.K. but it came with the strings flat against the neck, so I had to make rod adjustments before I could play a single note, and….. After a while I found out the thing couldn’t be properly tuned!!, from the 5 fret onwards it sounded out of tune.
I will take it to my luthier but I fear the worst; bad placement of the frets.
Anyway I played (and recorded it M/S) with the one and only John Bonham, he on his Ludwig and me doing some assistance on Toontrack’s EZ drummer.
Jimmy couldn’t make it to the show ,so it needs electric guitar, John Paul wasn’t also at the party, so it needs bass and the Irish guest musicians

WadeWade Love the feel in this and sympathize with purchasing instruments without playing first. This end of the world I never get a chance to play first unless a very expensive new instrument. Can still cost well over $1000 for most saxes and not a lot one can do if the intonation is crap.

OliVBeeOliVBee nice and fun to mix sources and ideas :) i can hear the faulty tuning as soon as you go down the neck ... bet you still had fun recording this ;) keep us updated !

It all started out as an learning process to get the instrument recorded and I guess the main reason why I put this thing in a life situation was my annoyance for the tuning, hoping it would sort of camouflage the problem and indeed it became fun to do and the annoyance became less disturbing I can even listen to it now without hitting the stop knob :)

ScrumpyjoeScrumpyjoe Are you swapping between Dm and D as well as being slightly out of tune? I'll have a bash at the backing or bohdrain if you like.

Indeed Joe,intro is in D and the theme in Dm,middelpart again in Dm, all tuned a few cents higher the 440 for an A(lost track of the right pitch with all this problems to get the thing in tune.Any add is more then welcome Joe!

WanHuWanHu I've always been told I have a very good ear for folk music, as I can't tell if something is in tune or not. This sounds great to me!

thanks WanHu,maybe it's my bad ear :)

"Good enough for folk" was the battle cry of guys who couldn't get their guitars in tune. Life is too short to be pernickity.
