Vibrotoning on the harp

Postby watertore » Sat Jan 10, 2009 8:39 pm

Hi All: My main vocal/harp preamp-an old altec 1592A mixer- has been in the shop for over 6 months getting totally restored. I have been missing it a lot and found another in great shape the other day. I eagerly hooked it up a few minutes ago and did this song with it. Man I love this preamp in combo with a Beyerdynamic M500 ribbon mic. Having the altec, I was able move the pre amp I was using on vocals -Universal Audio 610- to the guitar cabinet.
This is an overdubbed 1 man band song. First I laid down the drums and guitar. Second, a bass line on the guitar, and last the harp. I have to start practicing my hand held harp more because I will playing the Bean Blossom Blues and BBQ festival this year and that is a harp lovers dream gig. Walter

I've always preferred to jus' play harp behind a band Walter, but that might be because singin' & harpin' have their conflicts and nobody's hollerin' to get me to sing,lol! Solo acts, one man bands, duos, trios, bands.... they've all got their advantages. Mebbe ya' oughta give yourself the flexibility to jus' play more of what you've often done in the past: occasionally throw in those "call and response" harp and vocal tunes and then go back to all the other stuff you do so well, with the one man band stuff. You carry all your stuff off well Walter, so people are gonna give you some freedom.

thanks OldWailer! I am going to change the name on one of those songs to donald ducking on the harp. My friend heard it and said it sounded like donald duck, and later my wife said the same thing. I never thought that till I listened again with that thought in mind. Walter
