Melody On Prepared Guitar
A steel string cedar-wood guitar is prepared by weaving a 1/2 inch x 4 inch piece of folded paper between the strings of a guitar near the bridge, which creates a more percussive quality to the strings when struck by reducing the sustain of the string and emphasizing the attack of the notes. The melody utilizes the phrygian mode of western music, a mode often used in folk music around the world. Recorded on a Yeti Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone in a small room.
