So last night I took my recording stuff to my restaurant gig and recorded a couple videos. Here's what the shows are like.
Half of the recordings below are pretty loop-heavy. But most of last night was taken up playing requests from the audience, sans loops. I still need to get a couple good recordings of some of that sort of stuff.
I play covers at the restaurant because they keep the customers happy. But I hope to sneakily incorporate a few originals over the coming year as my confidence in my own work returns.
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.
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.
