Acoustic guitar samples - Guitarist Greg Diaz plays amplified
Acoustic Guitar Volume 4 at tempos from 83-120 bpm. These 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 bluesy
and 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 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 files 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.

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.
