Watch What Happens - Chord Melody - fingerstyle - pickstyle

Posted by Mick Dennis on January 24, 2019 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi!

Watch What Happens - Chord Melody - fingerstyle - pickstyle on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjtwll0FGwQ

In this video I am playing a late 80's Ibanez Artist with a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup (neck pick-up-series) through a Custom Billm Modified Fender Blues Junior in a custom designed cherry wood cabinet with a Jensen Special Design C15N speaker. I start off playing fingerstyle. I switch to a Golden Gate Mandolin pick at 3:12. I am using D'Addario NYXL Nickel Wound Strings 09-42 and a Horizon right angle cable.

The video was shot with an iPhone 6s Plus with the FiLMiC Pro app, Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter and a Rode iXY Stereo Microphone.

Lighting is a single Fancier Studio Fan 500A 3 LED Light Panel.

For audio mastering, I've added a compressor and limiter in GarageBand.

Peace Out!~Mick

Sabbath Meets Mahavishnu - Mick Dennis Electric Guitarist

Posted by Mick Dennis on December 19, 2018 at 8:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi!

Sabbath Meets Mahavishnu - Mick Dennis Electric Guitarist on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz-j4mkLu6U

A track from the album "Best of Mick Dennis-2007. Recorded on a BOSS BR-600 DIGITAL RECORDER with my late 80's Ibanez Artist through a Line 6 Flextone II with a Shure SM-57 placed close to the cabinet. I'm "guessing" that I might have be running through an original Bixonic Expandora. I often used Dunlop 208 Jazztone picks during that time period.

More tracks from this album are available here - https://www.mickdennisguitar.com/bestofmickdennis2007.htm

Pics are: Mickey Dennis as a toddler-black & white portrait; Mick-1976 High School Yearbook Photo; Tony Iommi; Mahavishnu John McLaughlin. This is an homage to "2" of my Biggest Guitar Heroes! Rock On!

Peace Out!~Mick
