I’ll Be Home For Christmas

Another video from our Celebrate Christmas event. First gig with my Collings Eastside LC guitar and a bit of a tough tune to execute on guitar. Overall, pleased with how well the instrument played. I was fighting the resonance a little bit in the hall as I would with most any archtop although it recorded without a hint of feedback.

    Collings + Fingers + Swart = TONE! Now that’s a jazz tone – nicely done Richard……when’s the solo jazz album being released? 🙂

        Ok, thought I saw the Swart in the background – you go live to the FOH then? In any event, Tone, tone, tone…….we’ll give the benefit of the doubt to your fingers and experience! Ha ha….R

          The Swart was there as a stage prop. I didn’t have it turned on. The Kemper was out to the FOH via the stereo XLRs. I was using in-ears for my monitor. I had an iPad which controlled my monitor mix — we were using a Midas digital console — and I had several guitarists in the audience who also thought I was playing through the Swart. That said, I spent a LOT of time tone shaping the Kemper for this event. The Jazz set was based off of a 1965 Vibrolux Reverb. Great sounding amp… er… profile 🙂
