Rainbow Connection

Yesterday I bought a Zoom H4n Handy Recorder for recording Bug Prentice rehearsals and gigs. I did a quick acoustic demo as a test, and thought I might as well share it. I’ve had many requests for Rainbow Connection since I played it at Childish Things 5, so here it is. I ran it through a compressor to raise the level, but otherwise it’s a raw example of the H4n — no EQ, no reverb, no nothin’.
