I was reminded of this folk song while on our trip to Argentina, a song that I had sung when living there. “Un Altar” was recorded on a 16-track recording app using only the iPhone mic (the one you talk into on the phone). I placed the phone on my knee when playing the guitar part and held it up a few inches away from my mouth when singing. For percussion, I turned the guitar over, holding the phone under the guitar and tapped on the back. When I finished my passes, I went to Dick’s room and he played an accordion part while I held the phone a few feet away.
