AnneCozeanAnneCozean i got quite a buzz from that guitar - thank you, Chris.
sax entrance here is graceful, as always.
the gorgeous opening sustain lets us hear everything there is to hear within single note. i love the falls back down to it later in the arrangement.
i hear you climbing in lovely lazy circles on the thermals of melody.
I got quite a buzz from that sax - thank you, Wade. very nicely done.

Arrangement? It's whatever happens at the time. 100% improvised 100% live. I never know what Chris is going to play and just try to follow. He was a pro way back, but lives in an extremely remote place that's 45 minutes from the nearest road. No city type services whatsoever. Solar, water from the creek, three stream crossing that become impassable when it's raining (can happen for weeks at a time). A very different place to be. He's a grower...need I say more?

pardon me - i meant "non-arrangement."

Well, there were some spacey moments associated with what Chris grows for a living.

Thanks for the listen Peixe, much appreciated.

MalCoMalCo Very dreamy hypnotic exotic! Guitar has sitar overtones and your phased effect and melody compliments it very well.:)

Cheers MalCo. Yes the Guitar is playing a mode that could easily be a Raga. Not sure I'd have used the phaser if I could have heard exactly what it sounded like while playing. Works for that first held note...but after that?

Ah i understand now Wade you can not hear the final result until you play back the recording! I hope this is the case only with live recordings! which by the way is very well done. :)

You've got it. The sax puts out it's own sound (unlike an electric guitar). So, that's mostly what I hear even when there's a box run through a speaker. I guess I could wear headphones and run it all through a mixer, but then I feel a bit "removed" from the guitarist and the whole live/fun thing. When I'm on my own I do use headphones so that I hear the box and the mix, but I still hear my own "natural sax" sound as well. Still adapting to all this and have a problem with trying to hear/concentrate on anything else when playing or "in the zone".

Thanks HiFiFluytes. Sorry that I couldn't separate the tracks. Would be perfect for you to play against the guitar as well.

Thanks Xavi. I just love doing modal stuff and trying to feel where the melody can go without changes.

fantastic Wade,and great guitar your friend Chris Fenton,I like play and sound:)
November 06 2016 06:57:19 ivaxWade
He was actually disappointed that he had to play his acoustic plugged in instead of his Maton Electric (pickup not working).
