Upper 3 Guitar - Hammering/Sliding Warp
Since these scans are copies of the original dot-matrix print-out of my mid-'90s notes, I've preserved the original ways of writing regardless of its difference from my current writing/thinking. E.G.: I now refer to middle C as "C4" & the lowest note on my 61 key keyboard as "C2" so the above intro is somewhat obsolete.
The duration followed by "@ 48" indicates the sequencer tempo at which that duration is achieved.
The following says that the guitar was "played percussively" meaning that it was laid on its back & the strings were played with wooden drum-sticks - including using a drum-stick as a slide.
To make the above a little clearer: the Mirage sampler didn't allow one sample across the entire 61 key range, it enforced a division into 2 samples minimum, 16 samples maximum. Hence, the minimum 2 samples are designated "Lower" & "Upper". The floppy discs that these samples were stored on only had enough memory to store 3 each of these "Lowers"s & "Upper"s = a total of 6 very short samples. Therefore, in this instance, "Upper 3" means the 3rd of the "Upper" guitar samples on the disc. See the enlarged relevant floppy disc image below.
