Another Attempt..........Maybe a Bit of Progress

It retains a bit of the original sound but wanders off into the forest of lost songs and dies a miserable death.
However, I do like what came out. I think I am improving a bit and it actually doesn't sound too bad for what it is.
It is the first recording I have made that I actually like going back and listening to.
I am learning to use compression and other effects, this is the first tune I have used them.
I have trouble getting a realistic guitar sound out of what I record. They always sound muted or "tinny" to me.
I am keeping this one and will try to get it to sound a bit better as I figure things out.
There is not a vocal on this. I don't sing.
Don't ask me to sing. You will regret it.
My dogs are still recovering from my first attempt.
It is on my Ovation Balladeer Special.
I use an Audio Technica AT2020 mic
an Alesis i02 Express interface straight in to Audacity.
nothing fancy........just trying to learn a bit as I go and keep it simple.

Of course there are the rare people who think every horrible noise they make is a masterpiece but they are instantly banned from gfb (not really, of course)

Sometimes we are our own worst critic. This was very good.

Second............thanks for the nice comments. I realize I get a little too over critical with myself but it has been a life long habit and it ain't changing anytime soon.
The tone of this tune is much better than I have been able to get before and like I said it is the first one I have done that I do like listening to again.
I also have improved a bit since last time so I am pleased. I wasn't searching for compliments but just hoping it sounded better to others.
I am just beginning to be able to use effects to improve tone etc. It is kind of interesting and fun.
It would have been nice if someone thought I sounded a bit like a mix of Andres Segovia and Tommy Emmanuel but I guess no one picked up on that.
I will keep plugging away and hopefully be able to put up another in the near future.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. <burp> (sorry)

I was going to say it, but I'd thought you had too much turkey and might still be hitting the eggnog !

That was nicely done. You should be very pleased with this.
