    ***RECORDING***

    I attempted a little 2 string finger pickin' and chord chasing on this one. Just a little out of my comfort zone. The old 4-1-2-5 part in the middle kept throwing me for a loop until I figured out what was going on (at least I think I figured it out). 2:34 - 3:37.

    Paleo,
    Nice change of pace.
    Well played.

    Papa,
    Wow, really in the swing of things.
    Did you get a lube job on your fingers over the holiday?

    TZ,
    Just enough dirt to make me happy.

    Thanks,
    Although I've got mics I purchased for use on my amps, I usually record the direct out signal for my VJR stuff.
    On this one, I used two mics on my Victoria Amp, SM57 & AEA Ribbon mic.
    I'll run with that setup for a while and tweek it until I feel good about what I hear.

    @CaptainMoto , that is a nice sound. I don't know how to describe what I like, I guess the word 'natural' comes to mind, but I realize that's abstract. Like you pointed out before, none of that matters without good input though, nice playing!

    Thanks you sir :)

    I'm convinced if you mic an amp you'll get a more real life representation then you'd get from using amp sims or direct recording.
    Problem is, it's easier to do direct out recording and it takes some experimentation to get good amp tone with a mic.
    I don't think I've got that nailed yet but, I'm working on it.
