    Take two.....I threw a SL of FX at this one......reverb, delay, chorus and a compressor. Easier to get to where I wanted to go. Getting there. Not perfect but better than the last take. Winged it today, no plans other than hitting some of the same stuff I tried last time...trying for more of a spontaneous feel and falling back on some metal clich├ęs. I'll get there.

    Busted out the cam corder & LP Custom for a one taker, so I thought I'd share it.
    The Vid was for a student., just I can't figure out how to embed it.
    Maybe some one can pick a few licks or find something useful in that mess of noodling.

    I copied and pasted just the highlighted portion of the URL to get it to embed correctly.

    The highlight should stop at the 'c'.

    My take on this track. I dropped the pitch on track a half step to accommodate my guitars tuning that I use in the band. Used my 2007 Les Paul Standard with a DiMarzio MoJoe in the bridge and a Joe PAF in the neck. My pickups this month ;-) in a ever changing tone chase. Used Line6 POD farm 2 with a Plexi Bass model with a tube drive and compressor in front with a 4*12 with vintage 30's cab sim. Used Reaper DAW for recording.

    Just found this thread what a cool idea. :)

    I have a simple setup to enable home playing which comprises:

    A guitar > Focusright PRO24 > PC.

    Used Audacity to record this with the backing track. GuitarRig plugin for guitar effect which was a preset called "Blues74".

    Played a Tele for this one.

    Its a bit of a wankfest :shock: , must learn to take a breath once in a while. :laugh2: I could do more takes but what the heck, play what comes and fughettaboutit. :wave:

    My habit is not to listen to any other contributions before recording my own, and having just uploaded this and then listened to some that were already in the thread, I'm glad I didn't check them out earlier, as a few have taken pretty much the same approach as I did, but have done it much better.

    I've achieved an authentically low-fi, live-onto-cassette-at-the back-of-a-pub kinda feel here by employing the brilliantly dumb strategy of playing the track through the pc speakers and the guitar through a tiny Vox modelling amp, and picking it all up on the pc webcam mike.

    One of these days I'm going to set up Audacity or something.

    Here's my second version for June. I didn't change anything substantial, but I cleaned up some sloppy playing in the last 12 bars, and remixed it. I'm posting the Soundclick link first because I think it sounds better. I'll post the Soundcloud link second, but every time I listen to it, there's massive dropouts with Soundcloud. I don't know what the deal is.

    Didn't think I was going to make it before the end of the month but had time this morning before I have to leave for a late afternoon meeting so here it is...

    Started off with my 78 LP but just wasn't feeling it at the time. I kind of liked my opening so I left it then switched to my EC Strat from the second line on. Recorded in Cakewalk a little reverb and compression.

    Now I need to go back and listen to everybody else's takes.

    A lot of good tracks this month.

    This is exactly why I don't listen to any before I give it a try. If I did I would not do one...
