My sweet daughter suddenly sang this song last week and it caught my attention. The melody and lyrics are so nice and the way she sang it was super sweet and angelic. She wanted me to play it in the guitar and the piano and somehow I got hooked. I’m hoping we could do a cover of this song ourselves.
Hi Hello z,
Travelled from Cavite to Zambales just to do a quick jam and most importantly, to witness live the exchange of vows of my friends, Carla & Christian at Casa San Miguel. Remarkable people. Travel bloggers extraordinaire!
This is the only recorded clip I have of my random jams prior to the wedding. This is recorded via a really OLD mic complete with rust, wear and tear…next to the mixer and a 600W speaker thanks to DJ Maskie Molino from Subic, Zambales providing the lights and sounds for the event. The forest like atmosphere is very pleasing.
Judging from the clip I can tell how crisp my guitar(Going Merry 2012) sounds especially the natural tone of the lower frequencies. The decent reverb coming off the sound hole is spot on and I’m not even using top of the line nylon strings. This guitar is an entry level in the Yamaha Classical guitar line up so you could just imagine the build and performance quality of this instrument.
Music inspires musicians and non-musicians alike. It is natural and what is natural has soul. Somebody told me before that listening to a guitar sounds more soulful than piano keyboards. I think partly it is true. Maybe becoz’ of the natural sounds of the strings being plucked or strummed by the fingers. The contact between the musician and the instrument is direct with almost ZERO interference. It is in its purer state. Authentic. The tone and sound control is genuine but what it truly lacks is variation. By that I can say keyboards also can be soulful by bringing out the variations it could provide. I can say that guitars can express a range of emotions but an electronic keyboard has the ability to produce a multitude of that and more.
Lookin’ forward to coming back to Casa San Miguel in Zambales. My short stay was so ‘BITIN!’
Congrats and Best Wishes for Carla & Christian!!!
