Acoustic Bliss seems to have been one of those guitar secrets, you know the ones that don’t exist cause we all share everything.

Well, this thread was started back in April to share the love!

😆

To be honest, I wasn't sure whether the Bliss gang would welcome being invaded by a bunch of guitar-makerists, but they seem to be quite welcoming 😉 

It's also available on the Livestream platform here;

https://livestream.com/baileyguitars

Livestream is better, (1) because you don't get interrupted with ads (if you've not got an adblocker in action on your browser) and (2) when watching LIVE, there's usually a lot of chat going on which you don't get on YT.

You can’t beat a little bit of Bisset in your Bliss.

The last couple of weeks I have been at the wrong end of happiness but yesterday I was able to forget that for a while and I had a good laugh. Thanks Carol, Thanks Mark and all at Acoustic Bliss. Hope to meet some or all of you in person at some point in time

@koendb I know how that feels too man, sorry you’ve not been happy. My anxiety and depression have been pretty bad the last couple of days, I’ve lost sleep and not eaten properly. This world can be cruel so I just have to find whatever rays of light that I can and use it to help me out of the darkness. This forum is one of those places that brings light, where I come to bombard you all with my glittery paint. ✨✨🤣🎸 I should call in to acoustic bliss more often as well. Keep going man. ✊

Thanks @russ 🙂

I sometimes wonder if there isn’t something self-destructive lurking in the sub-conscious. I didn’t actually get there in the end. On the last sung note I should be playing a B flat 7 chord and instead I played the root E flat. I just hung onto the note for dear life and then overdubbed the right chord progression afterwards. 

I was NOT going to go through that again!

Very skilfully done I’m sure most people wouldn’t have noticed if you hadn’t owned up.

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

@rocknroller912 Thank you 🙂

I have a musician friend now struggling with Parkinson’s Disease. He has always insisted on authenticity in recording, to the extent that he continued to use a 4-track recording cassette system for music whilst using a Windows laptop for the day job. Meanwhile, the rest of us were already in DAW sphere. 

I always maintained that his vision was the thing and how he achieved it was secondary. And now we’re editing his snare hits in 32bit 96kHz while pretending he doesn’t see.

So I’m pleased that I could fix one mistaken chord but I still worry about where that technology could take us...

@jamesbisset

We have some common ground there. I also have a musician friend who did recording and is now struggling with Parkinsons. Recordings we did on stereo cassette 40 years ago and later transferred to digital still sound ok

@jamesbisset The B flat 7 chord is the five chord though isn’t it? It should kind of work as it’s still it’s still within the E flat Major key. It’s whatever sounds right though I suppose, so I could be wrong (probably am), I haven’t heard what you played. A man of your musical experience will know what’s right though, I’m always trying to reinforce my understanding of basic theory. 👍

@jamesbisset I’m sorry to hear about your friend’s condition but I agree with his choice of weapon for recording. I am getting more and more analogue with everything in life these days, I’m sick to death of the digital world. I try to stick to basic online communications with friends and family, as well as like-minded people in forums such as this one. I’ve spent too much time staring into computer screens, it’s waste of my life. 
Good for him. Up the analogue! ✊

@boo Unfortunately, I chose to sing an F for some reason. That’s the one thing wrong with analogue - no undo button. 😉

Let's reinstate writing real letters to each other again! 🙂 ( I only remember doing that as a child, vaguely )

@jamesbisset Oh I see, very dissonant. 😱 Only two semi tones (half steps) apart and when played, or sung, alongside each other, fairly jarring. 😄 Never mind, like you said, the digital world can easily fix it. With analogue, re-recording was always the way, good fun though. 👍
