UPDATE - New Christmas CD coming this Fall

Postby guitarchuck » Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:35 pm

I guess I'll toot my own horn here. (I guess I should say: pick my own guitar, :D )
I've started recording my Christmas CD, which will be available this coming Fall. I have a new website that I'll be updating the progress of my project on as time goes by this year.

I have a demo of the first song that I've recorded on the website now. Here's the link if anyone is interested:

Thanks Richard! I've been busy this evening working on Jingle Bells. It's kinda strange playing Christmas songs this time of the year. This recording stuff is a lot of work for me! :lol:

Alan,
Thanks for listening and the nice comments. Just a side note on the different types of guitars: I like different types of guitars for the different tones they produce. It also seems to me that different types of guitars fit different songs better. Saying that, I tend to play guitars that fit my style. I never have been able to make solid body electrics sound very good. I play my Gretsch Country Gentleman at church all the time. At home I tend to pick up an acoustic.
I thought I would try to use guitars that fit the Christmas songs that I chose. I had a Gibson CE that I was going to use on some songs at first, but I never could get that guitar to record like I wanted. I ended up buying a Godin Grand Concert Duet Ambiance nylon electric. I'm really impressed with the variety of tones that guitar has. I'll probably end up selling it after I'm finished recording with it, just because I can't afford it right now.
I'll keep this thread updated as the weeks & months go by, giving demos of each song as I get them recorded. I plan on having the official release date for my CD to be October 18, 2013. That's the date of our Annual Fall Gospel Guitar Night. I hope to take pre-orders about a month before that, giving people a discount that pre-order the CD. The CD should be available at cdbaby.com sometime in October. You will be able to order a physical CD or download the mp3's. I don't claim to be a great guitarist, but I hope that I can record something that people will enjoy listening to this Christmas.

For those of you who have been keeping up with my Christmas CD project:

I just updated my website with a demo of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" that I just finished recording for my new Christmas CD coming out this fall.

This is song #4 out of 10. The year's about half over, I'd better get busy! That's the bad thing about recording at home, I tend to not get it done! My projected official release date is Oct 18, 2013. Hopefully I get it finished before Christmas! :D
