Fast Train To Istanbul film

Fast Train To Istanbul film

a new guitar instrumental, another train ‘song’ for my 3rd piece of the recording session with Auden Guitars at their Higham Ferrers showroom

the tune is about fast train in turkey, making its way to the city of Istanbul – the pieces is set in the Phrygian mode, which gives it a middle eastern feel

the guitar is my Auden Chester full-body acoustic in rosewood & cedar in tempered Open C tuning / CGCGCE (hence the tuning fork), the FX are a filter delay from the Boss DD-500 unit (with sampled rhythms of other trains at different speeds on DD-500 also) and the amp is the Schertler Jam 200 thanks to Paul Mockford for recording the film
