1 year and a half later I’ve discovered JustinGuitar community. So, after a couple of days of reading, replying, and giving hearts to the posts , I’ve decided to properly introduce myself.
My name is Edgar and I’m a 32 years old programmer from Spain (English isn’t my first language so I apologize if I make funny sentences ). Currently, I’m at the 12th module rocking with power chords. As I’m a huge rock and metal fan, I expect to stay in this module for quite a long , learning songs I’ve loved since my childhood. It is my jackpot module, I think .
Like many of you, this isn’t my first attempt at learning guitar, but I’ll save the whole story for my learning log .
Oh! I almost forget… as well as introducing myself, I should introduce you to my dear instrument. I’m playing a Tenson SG-like guitar (I don’t know the actual name) which has been waiting 14 years or so in a case for my return 🥲.
Welcome to the Community Edgar.
I hope you are having better weather than we are in the UK - we have had three big storms come through in a week. I think a week or 2 in Spain would do me the world of good…
Enjoy your guitar journey and rock on!
You, my friend, have arrived at the right place
Bienvenido a nuestra casa!
Please remove any sharp objects from your pockets, hang your ego by the door and enter.
You wouldn’t have a song for us by any chance, would you?
Hey Edgar, I already stopped by to listen to that SG, it sounded good to me! What Amp are you playing it through? It sounds pretty good regardless of what it is, join in (as you already have) and have fun along your learning path.
Is the AmplitubeApp with its sound interface (I think that is how it is called) to plug my guitar into my phone. Then, the interface comes with a minijack that I use to send the output to a little speaker (Sony SRS-X11) or headphones.
The interface costs 33€ and the App is free with in-app purchases. It comes with some basic amps and pedal emulators that I’ve been using until this Christmas when I bought a bundle for 30€ with quite a few more amps, and pedals emulators. For the ACDC song, I used a Marshal Slash signature amp.
The app comes with a tuner a metronome and a loop drummer to make your own backing tracks. Oh, and it also allows you to record!
It’s very handy and the sounds you can get are great, at least for a beginner.
That’s very clever, and it sounds good! I’ve been wondering about doing something like that rather than recording my amp, it would be less annoying for my neighbours
Do you record into GarageBand then?
