Like Griff said, not much to say, it's just like blues in E but in A
Nice one David and I was in suspense towards the end, will there be a flourish or not.
Oh well it was a good old Chunka Chunka.
I always enjoy playing the chunka chunka
I can't gaurantee a flourish every time but I will try
Hey David......just listened to your Full Out Blues, Blues in E and Blues in A. Very good and the flourish was great.
What are you using to record your playing? What is your set-up and what system are you using in the computer to do all of this.
How difficult was it to do all of this?
I think I might like to record in the future (for my BGU friends) and am curious as to how involved a process it is as I am clueless about such things.
Thanks in advance.
I got started with just a laptop with a built-in mic, and Audacity (free software). Just recording the sound in the room
Then I got a 2x2 USB interface, Presonus Audiobox, but there are a bunch with similar features. I use a Roland microcube with a bunch of amp models and built-in effects, but don't use much of that capability. I mic the amp into the audio interface. While recording I monitor with headphones. Actually I usually monitor the backing track or click track in one ear while hearing the room in the other. Still using Audacity software.
Other folks here use amps that have a direct USB output so no mic needed.
How difficult? Well there is a learning curve. There is a recording topic in the forum way down toward the bottom.
Probably the most difficult thing is not going all "deer in the headlights" when you hit the Record button
And I have sent innumerable takes to the bit bucket before posting one I was happy with. That's how you find out what you need to work on. For "lesson" material, with very rare exceptions I make myself record the whole thing in a take, not splice together bits and pieces from various takes.
Deer in the headlights ? I dont even get the headlights.........hit the record button, my fingers get all wonky and forget where to go
David..........thanks so much for the info.
and if you go with Audacity, the help file is pretty good
