Acoustic guitar samples - Guitarist Greg Diaz plays amplified
Acoustic Guitar Volume 5 at tempos from 120-158 bpm. These
loops include upbeat strumming and a “punchy” style
that combines plucking, picking and strumming. The style is
mostly pop-rock with a little folk, and a hint of 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 softly punchy to
strongly rhythmic strumming. 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.
There are 1008 acoustic guitar loops in 26 folders. There
are 511 MB in the 24 bit version, and 341 MB in the 16 bit
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.
