Better Live Acoustic Guitar Tone

We’re really proud of the live sound at our concerts and open mics. Last year, David Jacobs-Strain commented that he’d never before heard so many acoustic guitars sound like acoustic guitars, and he knows a thing or two about guitar tone! If you’d like to get a better amplified acoustic tone, retreat coordinator and Beat Harvest educator Adam Burns has some tips for you in the video below. To learn more come to Adam’s live performance class at the 2019 retreat.

Hear the 2018 Recordings

Everyone who attends the Yosemite Songwriting Retreat has the opportunity to record one of their compositions during the weekend with a professional recording engineer. This is a great way to capture your creations and share them with your friends and family. Visit the ‘Listen‘ page to hear recordings from last year’s retreat, recorded by Mike Christner.
