Video test

The “Torres” sound

Guitar played by David Duyos

Real sound

Sound has been recorded live, and there’s no significant post-processing on it

The piece is an arrangement of “El narizotas”, a popular spanish song from the 19th. Century. The sound has been recorded just using a pair of Rode M5 microphones. There’s no significant post-processing on the sound, except the addition of a tiny amount of reverb to make the guitar sound “real”.
