Acoustic guitar samples- Guitarist Greg Diaz plays amplified Acoustic Guitar on Volumes 1-5 at tempos from 45-158 bpm. These acid loops include strumming, finger picking, and a 'punchy' style that combines plucking, picking and strumming. The style is mostly pop-rock with a little folk, country and a hint of smooth jazzy here and there.
A TC Electronic G-Force was utilized to get the tones that were achieved. There are lots of variations on similar themes on this DVD. The feels range from sweetly soft and gentle to strongly rhythmic. A variety of keys are included. Many of the chords and chord combinations are played multiple ways within the same context, allowing you to create very natural realistic chord changes without any redundancy.
Each file names the chord or chords in their file name, and the keys are set to the first chord in the file. Layering the files allows you to create an immense variety of more complex chords and strumming and picking patterns, and the acid loops are all played tightly 'in the pocket' allowing them to work well together rhythmically. This technique was used in several of the demo songs (from each of the different volumes). See if you can tell where the layering was used.?.!
All of these acoustic guitar loops are completely 'acidized'. The tempos and keys are noted in the files and folders, so you can easily and quickly find the appropriate tempo, key and style to use in your song. Each folder generally explores one theme with lots of useful variations.

I've tried to describe the disc honestly and accurately, without the usual hype, to give you the basic idea of what's on the disc, but I encourage you to listen to some of the acoustic guitar loops and demo songs to see if you like the feel of the musicianship.
Please listen to the sample loops on the individual discs.
