Default "Don´t know why" - (Norah Jones) - guitar solo fingerstyle

Hi,
Here is my little arrangement of that wonderful song with interesting harmonies. For the solo I added some extra chords. "Ear-catching" is the sound of Norah Jones recording - it seems she avoided all kind of reverb, in that way producing the athmosphere as if she´s playing in your living room.

Hope you like it.
Many greetings from Stuttgart/Germany
Gerhard

Flawless and impressed again. This is some of the finest playing Ive seen on here. Thanks also for noting your tuning in your other post. Although there are many tunes I like in alternative tunings I find I gravitate towards fingerstyle in standard tuning the most. For whatever reasons it sounds more pleasant and sophisticated to me.

Wonderful job Gerhard - I love that Norah Jones song. I don't know whats more impressive, your playing skills or your arranging skills. Fantastic.

Wonderful rendition Gerhard, you really know how to make an acoustic fingerstye arrangement come alive.

What A/V equipment are you using? I can see the tip of a mic in your video that actually looks somewhat like an EV dynamic mic (PL 90), but I cannot imagine it is.

Hi SixStingString,

yes, besides special situations, also for me stnadard tuning seems to be the best ways. The last days I saw again some "hitters and knockers" on special tuned guitars....
First Thing, that comes to ear: there is never a melody to be found.
Second: in most cases, the players are not able to notably change chords and harmonies, because with the hittings and knockings they need the open strings and so they don´t have much changes to change the harmony, not to talk about a real key-change....
Many greetings
Gerhard
