Coro Estivo – Wana Baraka

2 Dec

A friend of mine David Hendrix is studying to become a choral conductor. During the summer he put together a summer choir or Coro Estivo to practice his conducting skills. I’m editing video taken at the concert to create a DVD.

Enjoy this musical piece “Wana Baraka” performed by Coro Estivo at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lynnwood, WA on August 19, 2007.

Variax 300

I have 4 basses, an acoustic guitar, an alto sax, piano and several keyboards, but I didn’t own an electric guitar and whenever I needed to record, I borrowed one. I needed one I could use for recording and was able to play all kinds of styles. The Line 6 Variax 300 uses a technology called modeling and can emulate various vintage guitars. I’ve had it for a couple weeks now and love the tones it can make. My favorites so far are the Telecaster, Les Paul and Stratocaster models.
