Acoustic guitar loops- Guitarist Greg Diaz plays amplified
Acoustic Guitar Volume 1 at tempos from 45-64 bpm. These acid
loops include strumming, finger picking, and a lot of a “punchy” style
that combines plucking, picking and strumming. The styles are
mostly pop-rock, indie, RnB, and 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 disc. 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 filename, 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 files are
all played tightly “in the pocket” allowing them
to work well together. 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.?.!
These guitar loops are completely “acidized” Every
one of these loops has the keys set and stretching properties
adjusted where necessary. 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.
There are 961 acoustic guitar loops in 33 folders. There are
592 MB in the 24 bit version, and 396 MB in the 16 bit version.
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 samples and demo songs to see if you like the feel of the musicianship.
