In the Bleak Midwinter

Here is a video of me playing a song that I arranged awhile back for the A Christmas to Cure Cancer 4 album that was released in 2008.  I have always loved this song growing up and when asked to do a song for the album this sounded like a great one to arrange!

If you head to http://myspace.com/andrewrothmusic, you can hear the original recording in its entirety.

I was able to do all of the recording myself using Adobe Audition, a Yamaha MW10 USB audio board and a Shure SM81 microphone.  It also allowed me to break out my cello and lay down a few tracks which is always fun!

If you like the song you can purchase the album at http://achristmastocurecancer.org/actcc4_cd/index.php and remember all of the money from the sale of the album goes to support cancer research!

NOTE: If you are wondering what guitar I am playing in the video it is actually my late Dad’s guitar.  It is an Aspen (now defunct) AD28-SH and was manufactured in Japan in the 1970s.  It has an incredible sound with a great bass response that I feel rivals higher end Martins and has quickly become my favorite guitar to play over my Ibanez AW300CE!
