Thank you everyone for the positive comments and the constructive ones.
@Rossco01, Jason, thanks. You are right on the phrasing, it took me a few listens to the Manic’s to get them somewhere near. I still struggle with the opening line though, that one is really hard. The Manic’s are a great band.
@ohmygato, Dan, thanks. My setup is for the mic and guitar is a Focusrite 2i2 that is plugged into my laptop and it’s the webcam that comes with my laptop and that is it. I used the OSB software to do the recording, all with just the standard setup that comes with the install. I’ve not really taken a dive into setting up settings within the software. Thanks, I think I need to start standing up to do my recording then I’m not squashing up my diaphragm. How to I tackle the intone? It that adjusting the pickups themselves?
@Strummer_of_69, Jason, thanks. I think I need to start playing with the setup on the equipment, as I’ve really not done anything with it.
@Richard_close2u, Richard, thanks. I hadn’t even noticed I was missing strings and I think it might just be something to do with my electric playing but I’ll be keeping an eye on this and will work on rectifying . I’ll have a look into the barre chords to get them under my belt. I’ll use this song and recording as a reference as I start to progress down the barre chord route.
@sairfingers, Gordon, thanks. I have to say, it’s only just starting to come together on my electric. The strumming used to awful and I really didn’t like strumming on it.
@brianlarsen, Brian, thanks. I love my Tele. I can’t remember who recommended it but a big THANK YOU! goes to them. I need to have a play with the mic settings as it wasn’t that far away from my face, so I must not have set something up correctly. Yes, I use my pinky to play the Dm chord, I blame Britney Spears.
@DavidP, David, thanks. The guitar was plugged into the 2i2 and my first few recording, on listen back, it was only coming through the righthand side of my headphones. I did some tinkering in OSB and managed to sort it out. Do you know if you can set effects on the guitar when it is plugged into the 2i2 and using OSB?
@CYPGMB, Iain, thanks. I didn’t know it was about Spanish nationalism. I’ve always wondered what it was about. Every day is a school day.
