    Hi,

    Here is a recording of my band. I took an Audio Technica stereo mic and stuck it in the middle of the room. It was connected to my 70-dollar pocket recorder. Then my acoustic guitarist, vocalist, and I stood about two feet from the mic and recorded these two songs fully acoustic. No amps, no effects. I copies the files to Garage Band, EQ it, and added reverb. That was it. My band is now looking to add a bass player (cello, double bass, or acoustic bass) and we think that will make an immense difference. I am only going to leave this recording up for a few days to comply with fair use copyright laws. Lowboy

    Very captivating, Tom. The interplay between vocalist and melodica is terrific, playing off each other, delicate, unpretentious. More of a flute than a harmonica sound — I like it a lot. Thanks.

    Thanks Alan. I have a cold, so I kept running out of breath before finishing my phrases. But I was surprised how close I got to the sound I am looking for in a completely acoustic environment.

    These days I see myself developing two sounds: one is an alto/soprano type sax sound and the other is the tube-driven harmonica sound. For this band, it is the alto/soprano that works best.

    So maybe you should incorporate that into your technique! (the running out of breath effect, that is)
