This weekend’s recording is a nice song, which dates back to my parents time. They were probably listening to this song over the radio.
The Carpenters’ Close To You.
Jake Shimabukuro did a great job of covering this song.
Inspired by him, I decided to give it a try by recording a shortened version of the song.
Once again, I used my digital camera on this one. Worried that I might damage the built-in mic of the camera over time, I played further away, and hence it doesn’t cut through as much. I’m thinking of buying a Shure SM57 recording mic to try out…. So stay tuned~
A few unforeseen extra sounds got included in the recording (MSN messenger and garbage man pushing the trash cart.)
Sorry for the interruptions…….
