Two very different backers again. Have fun with them, your choice one or two:
Sorry about the tune / intonation stuff. Still not perfect. But went with two guitars today, together and taking turns too.
PS. Using abbreviation as username too now.. . formerly known as Squier by Squier
I went with the pop one and tried to make it more like country pop. Strat on both
tracks with various selector positions direct.
I had the same idea (great minds, yada yada...) but nice tone and lots of nice runs!
Went with the pop one....thanks for the tracks
Really nice relaxed feeling, liked the fingerpicking (I guess?) parts too!
Big and airy and beautiful.
I went with the pop one. Modded SX Tele (neck P90) -> Monoprice 5w -> Bugera Power Soak -> Hotone Binary Cab (OwnHammer EVL 4x12 IR) -> Mosky Spring Reverb
Here's the jazz track. This is a second take. It's more of a pop approach to a jazz track. Tele neck pickup.
I tried the jazz track.
And you rocked it nicely with great tone.
Another fine take with cool tones and riffs.
It almost sounds like a synth in some parts, nice lines and riffs throughout.
That sweet tones shines through the mix nicely and top shelf production.
Well, that's a really great take and the tone fits the backer nicely. Nice mix too!
As I listen, the sound is so cool and serene. Very nice playing from the get-go. Nice one!
@SbS - Nice! Sounds quite anthemic. The two guitars sound good together.
@fendrguitplayr - Reminded me of a Ventures song somehow. Or something surfy. Nice interplay between the guitars.
@NWinther - Anthemic above the clouds and sailing away! Very nice!
@bgmacaw - Sweet tone and lines! Very nice to listen to.
@Mjark - Nice thick almost organ-like tone. Nice country-pop lines!
@Alan L Cole - Nice pop-fusion-arena-rock tone. Kind of like Journey or somebody. Soaring lines. Lift off has been achieved.
@G-52 - Nice tone and cool lines. Your approach was similar to mine. Very pleasant to listen to.
I’m a complete novice at this — How are you guys recording this stuff?
There are a number of ways to do it but here's what I do. As I mentioned in my post above, the guitar goes into my Monoprice 5w tube amp, then to a Bugera Power Soak that has a line out. I send the line out on the Bugera to my IR Cab pedal and then to my reverb pedal. Finally, it goes to a mixer. From the mixer, I split the output signal to go to my monitoring amp (a Headrush 108 FRFR) and to my PC. On my PC, I'm using Audacity to both record my incoming track and play the backing track. After recording, I sometimes balance out the two tracks so that the levels match better.
Download>Open in Daw>arm another track>record using whatever source you can get into DAW>Mix>bounce>upload WAV to Sound Cloud or wherever.
I download the backing track and load it into Reaper, which is a Digital Audio Workstation, or DAW. As bgmacaw said, you can use Audacity, which is simpler and also free. Then I open a new track to record the guitar. To do this, you need some kind of audio interface for your computer that allows you to plug in a guitar or a mic. But a lot of people use Garageband on an iPad or an iPhone. The simplest is to play the backing track in the room and record your amp with your phone. However you create the track, you can create a free Soundcloud account and upload your track there, and then paste a link here.
@SbS - powerful, strong melody, nice scale runs; nice mix with the guitars; SbS it is
@fendrguitplayr - nice bending and phrasing; sad song.. I like it
@NWinther - great sound as always; big moments were nicely spaced - track had a singing quality
@bgmacaw - pretty melody; expressive track, and well played
@Mjark - sweet country rock sound, smooth lines throughout, liked the 6ths too
@Alan L Cole - guitar’s a blazing, lots of emotion, professional take
@guitarsophist - nice singing melody, you had a nice jazzy vibe; well played yes, ours were similar; (extra) challenging BT I thought, fun
