For the Sunset

For the Sunset is a 22 edo composition in 70’s rock ensemble format. I’m using my newly installed GK-3 pick up to run the guitar through a Boss GP-10 guitar processor to obtain a faux 22 edo 12 string (opens the song), a Les Paul through stack like lead (alternates with guitar rig 5 lead) and the bass sound. The straight 22 edo sound is present as a counter weight rhythm with chorus. The drums are a mix of hand placed samples and loops. The composition was recorded and mastered in cakewalk Sonar. Yes the first two chords are the 22 edo equivalent of the opening of a famous 70’s song (I like the sound of the two chords, sorry) but the resemblance ends there. The form is ABCA with B’s chord progression becoming pretty chromatic against drone strings.

I put a GK-3 hex pick up on my 19 edo guitar – what follows are three demonstration pieces that rely on the pitch interpretation of the GP-10 processor. My overall impression that this was successfully accomplished as you can clear hear places where I pushed a decidedly non-12 equal note(s) through the system.

Acoustic 12 string emulation

Distorted harmony in C major (intended to be 12 edo harmony which gets “bent”)

G open tuning
