Once I Had A Sweetheart
Hi everybody,this is a very old irish ballad probably well known because of the Pentangle or Joan Baez, who played it in beautiful modern versions several decades ago. It is called "Once I Had a Sweetheart".This is my second attempt to produce something using my new dulcimer. All I record is far from being perfect, its just a draft, an idea to submit to whoever would like to listen to it, share opinions and give advice.Basically, I use a loop station in order to record the verse and another pedal to add/remove presence or chorus while the voice is not singing. With the bow I record the bass in the 2nd track (starting from the 2nd verse) and from the 3rd verse on I start improvising using the melody string (a little bit messy, it is live, but I have a lot of fun :)Ive seen theres already a video showing a very good interpretation of the same song from the friend Dave Kirkpatrick, but he uses a different technique so I think my video could not be considered redundant.
