Canada for the afternoon…

We took the afternoon and drove across the bridge from Lubec, Maine, USA into Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada. The tides on the Bay of Fundy rise and fall 20 feet within a 8 hour period. The view of Pasamaquoddy Bay is quite extraordinary. You can watch whales feeding right from the shore!

This tune was composed and recorded by Matt Baker on August 1, 2019 with Matt’s Samsung S9. Matt plays both guitar and mandolin on the recording.

Lubec Jig, a tune

This is an original fiddle tune I composed vacationing with my family up in Lubec, Maine near the border of Canada. It’s a lovely part of the world. There are lots to be inspired by: lovely salty dog, pine trees, craggy shores, delapitldated fishing huts!

It's been awhile since I've done home composing and recording and I’m itching to get back into the swing of things. I replaced my old Apple iPhone a couple years ago with a Samsung and I’ve had a hard time getting multi-track recordings to work on the Android platform, but I finally figured it out! On thos recording I’m using Stagelight with the internal Samsung S9 mic.

I’ve taken a holiday with my wife and my inlaws up into northern Maine and I thought it was a perfect time to hammer out some tone ideas. Now that I have the process down with my equipment stay tuned for more Tone Sketches!

This tune really captures the relaxing and carefree attitude hanging out at a perfect setting of Summer in Maine.
