man o man, just blew the work productivity for the afternoon :)

I relaxed to some Chopin, got enamored with a new looper tool/toy I need to get, and rocked out to a cool and distinctive fingerpicking style. Then enjoyed some other cool guitar stuff in a totally different style. There's some non-climbing talent around this place. Thanks guys!

In a few months after I get stuff unpacked from boxes and easy access to recording, will have to revive this thread for some new creations and keep the little music support group alive.

Yeah, that loop thing is pretty cool. So, what are guys using to record? I'm sort of primitive with a Zoom H4 then using Audacity to trim the ends and normalize.

Garageband. Or Logic pro if I'm feeling, ya-know, pro.

Before I moved to LA, my band recording setup was Ubuntu Studio based linux apps. Some people get religious about Ground Up, I got religious about Open Source:

ffado drivers controlling an Mbox hardware A/D converter with mic and line inputs
linux real-time kernel tweak to get less choppy audio
Ardour as the main recording/mixing/effects plugins interface
JAMin for mastering the final mix
patchage for virtually wiring all the Jack apps together
Audacity for converting the .wav mixdown (Ardour output) to .mp3
(could use lame for command line, but Audacity is easy too)

All the "original" tracks on this link, except the last one, were done with linux software:

For my guitar effects, I've got mixed feelings about the Line6 POD-HD500. Very flexible and versatile, but terrible presets. Lots of work to tweak it the way you like, and then try to normalize the output levels for different patches is hard (e.g. for live shows to get similar volume levels on each patch). That messed me up a lot even during jam sessions, stopping to fiddle with levels and tone and getting in the way of just playing and having fun with the gang.

I really like my old Line6 AX2 2x12. Nice sounds, no fiddling necessary, but fiddling is available if you want it. And it's heavy to lug around.


Then there's the Taylor 12-string, the Takamine classical with built-in pickup, the import Fender Strat, and the old Yamaha steel string my dad picked up in the Philippines during Vietnam. And a beater classical I bought for $90 about 20 years ago, that I still take on camping trips.

Climbing doesn't help my gigging any. Especially El Cap. Takes about a month for my fingers to get back to normal.

Hey, now that we are on the subject of virtuosity check out this guitar genius and the respect he gets from his fellow band members:

"Gone Ridin" - original tune by Steve Yasmer and RDA. 2000. Written after having a conversation of how some of the ladies weve known in the past left us riding off- either on Harleys or horses loL, then,,,

after a shot or two of tequilla, i whipped out a melody that Steve tapped right into. 15 minutes later, it was written and done. One of those "times".. The above is JUST a studio scratch track with two dubs.

Nice c_vultaggio

Needed to pick up a couple of things first when I heard your voice.

Overdubbing, some with delay, phasing here and there and varispeed a tad seems you can create anything now and is endless. Not like the old days

Mustang 1: control everything with the mousie. Hell for a hundred bucks can’t go wrong. Electronics sure has come a long way.

Thanks John; might want to be trading again “eh”.

Nice set up.

Boy been a long time but I remember the stand but it came I think from Roland could be wrong but like the change. How was the dubbing and did you hear back from Larry Thomas yet. I am waiting holding my breath. Kidding but let me know what he said. That's history.

Threw down a version of this track recently, processed through Pro Tools as a single-track through my live loop setup (RC-50) with mando, bass, and guitar.

Not bad, c_vult - if you were Bruno Mars, I'd accuse you of ripping of the Knight Rider hook ;)

I was actually going to bump that bluegrass thread with Chief in it - I love a little music with my hand jams.
