Today’s session involved experimenting with various different percussive instruments. We collected these instruments from the tech office and tried out different playing techniques fro each.
For our track we decided to only use a shaker, Cabasa and the sides of a acoustic guitar (images below). Together these instruments fit the track well and gave it its acoustic style. We were able to fully record these sections in one recording session as they were relatively simple.
The percussion from the acoustic guitar was created using various taps against the body of the guitar. I also happened to have a ring on my finger which created a different sound for some of the taps.
