Thread Name: Field Recording... Yourself
Subject: RE: Field Recording... Yourself
Thanks, DW.

I spent a little time with mine, this AM, running through some of the spirituals I know, in case I get hit by a bus before my big recording contract comes in the mail to allow me to do it right, in a studio, for the Big Folkin' Bucks I know we all deserve. :~)

One thing I nabbed was a spiritual I used, one day on the fly, to close a small, intimate Mudcat Gatheting we had at our house last year. I led us in round-robining fovorite memories for the weekend, that we wanted to say thanks for and take with us, at farewell time... I think I'll email it to a couple of the folks who couldn't attend.

It DOES do a better job on voice-only. Instruments are better at a distance, and percussives (like my autoharp style) do fuzz up quite a bit if too close.
