an improvisation on lap steel guitar using a 13 limit just intonation system
Well done, Eric! Letting the EBow rest on the strings for a drone, while doing other things, is a great idea. Haven't seen that before. I'll say it again, it's great to find someone working in JI. I don't know of anyone else in the community doing that - and Robert Rich is the only one I know of in the "Ambient" scene (though he's rightly renounced that term, not to be limited by it).
Heading over to your Bandcamp page...
Eric, very cool improv and very inspiring! Have come to this vid after reading your blog post about ambient guitar, particularly because we seem to share a similar thread... rock/metal roots, guitars and our approach to them (although I never quite excelled at the technical proficiency). I felt almost as if I were reading my own thoughts on your blog post. It's really great to find people out there now who've been similarly inspired and doing this all along. For a long time, I only knew musicians who were strictly rock/metal and it had me feeling quite alone with my 'adventurous stuff'. As for this vid, I think you've inspired me to play around again with my fretless guitar :) Cheers!
Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you enjoyed the video and the blog post.
I too came from a very rock/metal background. A lot of my friends were weirded out by my sudden shift to ambient--but my music is all the better for it. I'm producing some of the best music in my life thanks to embracing the Ambient genre.
I play fretless guitar too! What kind of fretless ax do you have?
