Bit of a rush to get this done in time. I can definitely nail the solo a little better (can be more in the pocket on the second half, and the bends aren’t perfect here) but I didn’t think I’d get a better take today and still find time to post the video.
That sounded awesome! Great old-school vibe and tones, great playing. Rhythm was locked nicely to the groove.
I did hear the issues you mention wrt the bends in the solo, but the main thing is that you hear them yourself and is aware of it. With a few more takes I’m sure you would have nailed it
Blimey, I didn’t expect it to be so busy on here on new years eve/day. Is it my imagination or is it much busier here than the old form? Thanks for the encouraging comments everyone.
Was the guitar multi-tracked or the video just split into the segments for visual effect?
I’m recording stereo, hard panned left and right with different cab sims and mic position for a bit of variety. Then it’s just two takes - one for rhythm one for the solo.
The video thing is a bit silly… I wanted to have the two videos side by side but Reaper comes with a 2x2 grid display option. I could have looked for alternatives or dug into the code that you use to define video editing macros, but that’s a rabbit hole I want to avoid. Otherwise 6 months from now I’ll be answering questions on mailing lists when I should be practicing guitar. Anyway, I asked my wife if it looked better with two black quarters or with all four going with the videos doubled up and she chose the latter.
