Wee Asturian set played by Scottish musicians (shameless self-promotion alert)

Hi all,

As I’m sure many others are doing, myself and some pals have been recording some tunes to make the quarantine a bit more entertaining. Since we’re all in Scotland we usually play Scottish or Irish tunes, but this time I managed to get my lovely friends to learn some tunes from my home country and make a wee set.

I hope you enjoy them 🙂

That’s lovely, Dave.

It’s amazing what creativity has been unleashed (and, to a certain extent, facilitated) by the lockdown.

Thanks Donald, that’s very kind.

Yes, if I wasn’t stuck at home I would most probably be playing music, but in a session, not making videos with pals.

That’s grand stuff, Davidfm. Really good ensemble playing,
How did you get it all synchronised accross the internet?

Thanks Ketil (nice to find you here 🙂 ) and Muircheartaigh. We use an app called Acapella. It sorts everything out for us, our video and audio editing skills (and mine in particular) are close to 0.

Nice sounding mando, Donald - who wrote the tune?

Re: Wee Asturian set played by Scottish musicians (shameless self-promotion alert)

It’s one of mine, Christy. Fairly recent composition which had the working title 300106 until mid-March.

I recorded with a large diaphragm condenser into a mixing desk for EQ and panning and through a Focusrite Scarlett into laptop.

Very nice Donald! Really enjoyed that 🙂

(And thanks Choons and Gayle for your kind comments)

Thanks Dave. It’s one of those ones that came about purely by accident when noodling with a chord sequence one day (6th of January 2020, to be precise).
