Video Diggin’: Cary Morin’s “Old Guitar”
inUncategorizedon March 26, 2015
Cary Morin’s “Old Guitar” is a great video to see some of the outstanding picking that goes on amongst the guitarists at Music Maker. “Old Guitar” is one of Cary’s original songs and some of the shots of his fingers picking through the different riffs are just incredible to watch. During certain solos, the momentum of his playing speed builds quickly, yet remains in control while still maintaining a continuous and natural feeling. Different parts of the song call for different playing styles, which adds a very smooth variance to the story of his ol’ guitar. For example “sing for me baby soft and sweet” cues a quieter portion of the song to mimic the communication between Cary and his guitar and builds on the story the song works to convey. The shots used in the video highlight all of this action as well, with an up close perspective down the neck of the guitar, which spotlights what Cary and his “Old Guitar” are both truly capable of.
