A new modest instrumental sample

Hello all
I've not been posting for a while.
This is a new modest idea recorded a few hours ago.
An interesting tuning : EADGBB.

(Two guitar tracks)

Do I add a bass line?

Very nice.

Personally, I'd like the bass tone to be deeper/fuller to give more distinction between the guitars and the bass, but I realise this doesn't really suit the slapping poppers out there.

Definite return to form though!

Thank you!
Correct me if I'm wrong but the bass seems not to be always perfectly synchronized with the guitar.

It's difficult to choose the right tune for a bass Tim....

I think Tim is talking about the tone not the tune, the tone of the bass is trebley and toppy, needs to be deeper, the guy hits the notes in the right places... i think, but what do i know?
Ive got some good fireworks for tomorrow night, Tim and 1bassleft, go out in your respective gardens tomorrow evening at 7.30pm and look south, you might see them go up.
By the way, i live about 1 mile from that oil refinery that nearly went up Weds afternoon, that would have lit the sky up.

The bassline's good (synch seems OK to me); generally leaving the space to you. I'm not sure about the fast run at 2:10 but, like Tim, the problem I have is with the tone, not the tune. Is that an EAB? It seems to occupy a similar mid-high register. Myself, I'd have got out the mahog-body solid, set it to full on the neck pup and kept it deep and full. Maybe a bit "Snowy White", but I think it would have put the additional depth in there. Must emphasize the playing sounds nice to me, though.

Hello all.

Finally.....no bass on the last version.Just piano and guitar.

Funny how an instrument changes things. The piano's good, but makes the tune more "easy listening". The middle eight at 1:30 and 2:30 now reminds me of "Harvest for the World" for some reason. I prefer the bass-accompanied version but, as Lee mentioned, a real drummer would be more adventurous and lift the song.
