Both were recorded indoors. I was farther away from the mic for "Ramble On."
I am playing on my birthday present. My old used guitar suffered a mishap some months ago when I accidently knocked it over and one of the braces inside came loose and the guitar would not stay in tune, no matter what. So, I went to pawn shop (your namesake, as it were) and got a better used guitar.
A Spectrum acoustic, and this one actually has built-in pick ups, which I did not use for this song. The only song I have used to built-in on was "The Rain Song."
And yes, I inexplicably play this faster but it suits my feeling. I'm a bad, bad boy ...
