How I Did It
Tools I Used
I recorded my Mandolin with an SM-58 on the neck joint, into a Fostex MR-8.
Samples I Used
It is a live original recording, no samples.
This is part of a series of instrument parts in the key of D labeled 'NH', that I doodled out for the purpose of posting here.
I never have. I never mixed my own copy of NH, other than to hear it on the board in headphones.
I noticed there are not many Mandolin samples on ccmixter, and none of any good quality. It is a unique sounding instrument someone might need, so here's a good minute long sample of that instrument, captured as clearly as I can manage.
