So I wanted to see how the S5's built-in microphone sounded on the video setting. So, using the front-facing camera, I made this video of me noodling away to a JamMan loop I'd recorded a couple minutes earlier.
Am I playing my best? No. Does the microphone sound ok? Enough, considering the dull, sloppy performance.
So there. Enjoy a few seconds of messy guitar solo.
Here's my first Pedaltrain setup. It's not pretty, nor wide as a church door, but 'tis enough.
So what to do with that empty space? Perhaps a Compression/Sustain pedal of some sort? Perhaps a more dependable delay pedal? I won't be able to afford new toys any time soon, but that space on the top left certainly calls out to me.
Today I recorded a performance of "35,17" at Tractorgrease Studios.
I don't really want to write about the performances until I hear which one Jeff chose for the video. I'll be sure to post the video here, of course, and I'll be more willing to write about it then.
I played somewhat well. It was a little rough around the edges, of course, but I feel as if I turned on the charm and played a few good riffs. If anything the performance was unique, I hope. I look forward to hearing how a Jeff-live-performance sounds when it's professionally recorded.
Also, yesterday I learned that my mix of "Pound of Flesh" was accepted for the Michael Knott Tribute CD. I sent a mixed wav file and look forward to hearing how it gets mastered.
