    here we go: ignore the crummy playing near the end. ::excuse:: the part was in 7/8, then 4/4, the 7/8 again.. and so on, but my metronome cant make those kind of changes so i tried to do the whole thing in 4 ::/excuse::

    Nice! How did you record that? And how many tracks is it? My apologies if it is a single track. And if it is, you can really play!:)

    Yeah, this one's been posted several times -- I just dug back a ways... anyone know details about this clip -- who's playing? what Cirrus wood combo? Etc?

    :)

    This is a clip that Rickreyn has up on his website.


    The bassist is Maurice Fitzgerald (who holds down the bottom for Gospel Artist Fred Hammond and Destiny's Child). I remember Rick saying Maurice was playing a Bubinga/Walnut Cirrus on this clip.

    Hope that helps.

    That helps me out a lot, actually - just so happens I'm planning on that wood configuration for my next Cirrus - now I'm even more certain it'll sound good!

    I sent Rickreyn a PM asking about the clip over a month ago - PM tracking indicates he's never read the message... :(

    Thanks for the info!

    :)

    Hey, thanks for the kind words. I recorded it directly onto my computer to Cubasis via my SoundBlaster Audigy 2 soundcard. Sorry to burst your bubble, but there are two tracks there... one is the deep notes and the harmonics, and the other is the solo parts over it.

    I added the chorus and reverb in Cubasis.

    EDIT: So I can't play then? :D ;)

    2ndEDIT: Just for the folks talking about wood combos, mine is the flame maple over alder with the peacock blue finish. It sounds fantastic!

    I have a Redwood/Alder Cirrus five string. Acousticly, it definately has a noticebly warmer tone then the other wood combos. However there are so many other factors that affect tone. I have three amps... a Fender Bassman 25, an Ampeg B328 (combo w/ two 8" speakers), and a rig setup consisting of a SansAmp RBI preamp, QSC PLX1602 poweramp & Avatar B410. For example I can dial in that "HiFi" slap tone Maurice gets on that soundclip fairly easily on the Ampeg, but forget about it on the Bassman.

    Peace,

    - Frank.
