Acoustic guitar samples - Guitarist Greg Diaz plays amplified
Acoustic Guitar Volume 3 at tempos from 75-82 bpm. These loops
include strumming, a lot of 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 shuffle
and 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 deep and warm picking to forcefully strummed. 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
filenames, 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.?.!
These acoustic guitar loops are completely “acidized” with
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 851 acoustic guitar loops in 28 folders. There are
638 MB in the 24 bit version, and 426 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 loop samples and demo songs to see if you like the feel of the musicianship.
A ballad like song with all the acoustic guitar coming from this disc. The pads,
bass and drums are each from various discs. The piano is from Gorgeous Piano.
The strings and orchestral parts are from the Sony Orchestral series.
