After the prior confusion of this week, I finally sat down and recorded some more sound with the resonator guitar. I should note, the set-up has expanded somewhat since last time. In addition to the contact mic, I wired a jack onto a very weak, loosely hand-wound guitar pickup I had made a while ago and used that to amplify the string vibrations in interesting ways. In order to control it, I ran it through a radio shack dj mixer and to a tube preamp before it went to the practice amp. The contact mic as well was colored by a matching preamp along the chain with its volume pedal. And the guitar too was still fed to the amp using the piezo I had installed on the resonator cone.
I tried to avoid directly touching the strings as much as possible and any time I could assemble an arrangement of objects such that sound would gently shift over time without my involvement I took advantage of the possibility.
Note: updates will now continue on a thursday schedule and I am skipping next week due to ErstQuake.
