Thread Name: Ed Alleyne-Johnson and backing tracks
Subject: Ed Alleyne-Johnson and backing tracks?
One of my favourite fiddleists for a long time has been Ed Alleyne-Johnson. First heard of him in New Modal Army and then as a solo artist. Pondering what he has been doing recently I decided to take a look at good ol' YouTube and found some clips of him. Brilliant as I remember but as well as sharing that with you I wanted to ask a question.
On another thread someone said a backing track reduced a tune to Karaoke - And Ed A-J uses one here - But seems to record it first himself and then use the recording as a looped sample for backing. Sounds fabulous to me and I don't think all electronic wizardry can be classed in the same way.
Take a look here and here
Let me know what you think.
