Acoustic Guitar Patch Demo Video

Hi Guys! I've posted a patch demo on the Essence on my YouTube channel.
I couldn't find any really good realistic Acoustic Guitar patches in any of the DX7 patch databases, so I programmed one on the Essence. It uses one voice (6-operators) and sounds really good now. Let me know what you think!
Headphones help, just saying.

Pretty nice patch!
Maybe you could add some attack noise depending on velocity, also you could make the string sound slightly delayed after the "pluck" sound; that delay could be randomized with the mod matrix (RNG => duration of 1st segment of volume envelope) to give a more human feeling.
You could also design some fret noise sounds that can be triggered by playing notes outside of the normal guitar range.

Just some ideas :)

Thanks! There is a string attack that is velocity sensitive, it just doesn't come out in the piece I selected.
I haven't tried any sound effect noises yet, like a pluck sound, or a fret slide sound. I'll get to that eventually, and the RNG suggestion sounds great! Thanks.
