Marcus Wong
Fingerstyle guitar

Recording Engineer, Mixing and Mastering Engineer.

Artist:
Marcus Wong is a fingerstyle guitarist from Singapore. While he started out learning and covering other fingerstyle artists' arrangements, he soon developed an interest in creating his own, with his first attempt being a cover of Walk The Moon's "Shut Up And Dance" in 2016 — his most popular video to date. Marcus is also a proud user of a custom Michaud Made guitar, and is the founder of The Golden Era Guitar, a guitar dealership that specialises in boutique hand-made guitars.

 

Shut Up And Dance (2016):

Process:
This cover is an original arrangement by Marcus. It was recorded using four microphones: a pair of Peluso CEMC-6 pencil microphones, an AKG C214, and a Schertler AG6 pickup. The beautiful guitar featured is Marcus' custom Michaud Made OM-R, named The Tree. I was not involved in the video production for this video.


 

12:34 (2015):

Process:
This is a cover of Calum Graham's finger-style piece, 12:34. The audio for this cover was recorded with an AKG C214 and a Schertler AG6 pickup. I also directed and edited the video.
