Nice slice of jazz Markku, easy on the ears, laid back. Thumbs, Gibbo
The instrumentation and players often change depending on my needs at a given time for freshness and what I may be doing. For example, recently I got back to playing live, which has been a difficult task for me just getting to the point of being able to play an entire tune let alone a set again. I use congas, organ and guitar, while other times I may use just congas, upright bass, guitar and occasionally add piano, trumpet and/or sax.
My guitar is a 1967 Goya RangeMaster in its original condition and without any modifications to it. It does have a few cracks here and there from when it was shipped from Italy back in 1967 due to climate change.
We use mics on the congas, B3, on my guitar amp and the audience, run them thru a Peavey PV 6 mixer (used as a pre-amp) and into Cake Walk V studio 100. Noise clean-up is obtained ny using either Nero's Noise reduction or Audacity free editor b4 uploading. We also use PRESONUS ACP88 COMPRESSOR LIMITER W/NOISE GATE especially when we have to control the sound when doing just background music at dinner parties etc.As for the PA, it's a Yamaha EMX212S-BR12 but instead of using the mics that came with the package we use several Oktava MK-012 mics for a cleaner sound.
My studies began at the Ontario conservatory of music in Canada at a young age. Later I received a degree in music education from VanderCook College of Music in Chicago. My education included vocal training, playing all orchestral and band instruments, band administration, conducting, orchestration and performing. My majors were flute and piano. Cello and bass viol (upright bass) were my favorite. Guitar was an instrument I learned to play at 17 and became quite successful with it.
