Guitarist Greg Diaz plays amplified Acoustic Guitar Volume 5 at tempos from 120-158 bpm. These loops include upbeat strumming and a punchy style that combines plucking, picking and strumming. The style is mostly pop-rock with a little folk, and a hint of jazzy here and there. A TC Electronic G-Force was utilized to get the tones that were achieved. There are lots of variations on similar themes on this disc. The feels range from softly punchy to strongly rhythmic strumming. A variety of keys are included. Many of the chords and chord combinations are played multiple ways within the same context, allowing you to create very natural realistic chord changes without any redundancy. Each file names the chord or chords in their order, and the keys are set to the first chord in the file. Layering the files allows you to create an immense variety of more complex chords and strumming and picking patterns, and the files are all played tightly in the pocket allowing them to work well together rhythmically. This technique was used in several of the demo songs from each of the different volumes (click on the link to the Playin’ Music website below if you’re interested in hearing the demos ). See if you can tell where the layering was used.?.!
All loops are completely acidized. The tempos and keys are noted in the files and folders, so you can easily and quickly find the appropriate tempo, key and style to use in your song. Each folder generally explores one theme with lots of useful variations.
