Re: Online Guitar Lessons

Play with others. I agree, but assembling a few semi reliable cronies into some kind of informal rehearsal routine is frustrating and a job in itself. I have had bands here and there over the years that fall apart. I have some people in town I’ve entertained the idea with, but they also have unreli...

Re: Soundproofing a Tuff Shed

I don’t know if you’ve evaluated just how loud it’s going to get yet, I would probably start there. There’s definitely different ways to approach this, depending on what you’re planning on doing. I’m not clear if you’re planning on a band (seems like kind of a small space for that?) or live drums or...

Re: Online Guitar Lessons

Do you know basic harmonic theory? Circle of 5ths? Stacking intervals for the various major, minor, dim, aug, 7th chords etc? I think that stuff does more for the creative process than any dude having you run finger exercises will bring. But that's also my musical bias. I “know” most of that but ha...

Online Guitar Lessons

Where do you go when you want to be a better player? Any youtubers worth checking out? Paid sites? I'm not really interested in million note per second music, but objectively feel like a mediocre guitar player like me could stand to be better when I use it as a writing tool as much as I do. I'm at t...

Re: Time-stretching best-practices? (for a large file)

I don’t know what daw you’re using nor have I tried it but if you have “elastic audio” or the equivalent turned on and then made constant tempo automation that it could follow I think that work work?

Re: Romancing The (bad) Past

Aww man I’ve done some live shows to Tascam 388, turned out way cool. As it happens, this actually can be more reliable than doing a hard disk recording sometimes, because you’re not subject to vibrations and computer glitches. Sweet. I 388 in a club. You must have really been the envy of all the b...

Re: Romancing The (bad) Past

Live recordings are a unique experience, I'd hate to add old intermittent tube mics and tape deck to it. Those cats were much braver than I!

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Traded off a mim strat I didn’t ever bond with for...a couple guitars that weren’t really on my radar but may be closer to my thing...or maybe just good trade material later. A brushed aluminum LTD Page Hamilton sig and a PRS SE Custom 22.

This is how I end up with too many guitars.

Re: Bass Plugins

For di bass guitar shaping you might prefer something more like an amp and/or speaker cab modeler plug-in. +1. I record DI bass and usually what I'm wanting from it in the mix is more mid/high definition. Drastic eq can sort of work but I find just putting it through an "amp" works a lot better. I ...

Re: Bass Plugins

I don’t know that any of these are used primarily as bass guitar plugins, more like ways to make your bass work better on different speaker systems...especially if your bass line is a synth/sub/808 that may disappear completely on bass deficient speakers. Perhaps in certain circumstances you might u...

Re: Cheap marshall clone

at that pricepoint, i'd be dubious. for that kinda $$, i'd say you're better off getting a tiny terror - those things are great for the studio. simple controls on them is a big plus, too. quite a bit pricier, but you can get a Fryette (or Fryette era VHT) for dirt cheap, considering what they deliv...

Re: Hardware Compressors for vocals on a budget

I agree with the x32 or similar digital mixer solution...there’s a reason these are so popular...lot of bang for buck/full solution versus just buying compressors per channel/etc and very practical way to do things. It also means that you can find used low end dynamics for cheap if you must go that ...

Re: Onboard Guitar Pre-Amps/Boosters

Not a recommendation exactly as I’ve never used one, but guitar fetish sells some cheap active effects and preamps designed for guitar mounting:
