    Quite nice pauln Hope to hear more from you. For videos, should you want to post one, what I do is just play the backing over the stereo, plug a guitar into an amp and point the phone cam at my guitar. Easy.

    Sounds like some Otis Rush stuff. Nice!

    Just got back to this thread and took my time listening to the ones that I missed.

    Rags, you just about brought a tear to my eye, man. You would do well at one of the local Baptist Churches, singing a Bluesy hymn!

    No amp at all. Going direct into a Tascam GT guitar trainer that plays a CD with the backing track that you can balance with the guitar's volume and from there direct into the line in of my ZOOM camera. It takes only about five minutes to set up and be ready to record. Guitar is an Eastman AR 372 CE btw.

    Paul - people are saying they've heard this but I can't see any link at all. Have you removed it?

    It’s still there, post no. 100 with an MP3 attached. That screenshot doesn’t look right (post no. 0?)

    I was afraid you would say something like this.

    It never ceases to amaze me many of you are able to have such heavenly tone (at least to my ears) without an amp. I guess you are basically "mastering" and fine tuning your tone through those music recording software programs and any associated pedals you might be using.

    The days are long gone when you could buy the same guitar and amp and be able to just about reproduce another guitarist's tone that you might like.

    Thanks.

    Not in my case - just plugging into the Tascam on a clean setting with no effects or modelling - just a touch of reverb, so it's the pure guitar.

    I do almost no mastering on my takes. I usually use one of two methods. I prefer to play the backing track through a sound system so I can hear it "live" while playing the guitar through an amp, also "live." The amp is ether mic'd or if it has a direct line out, I use that into the ProSonus Audiobox, and from there to my laptop, which is what I also use to take the video.

    The other method is to put the backing track direct into one channel of the ProSonus, and plug the guitar in the BruteEQ pedal and into the ProSonus, from thence to the laptop.

    I adjust each channel so it doesn't clip. The resulting video file, backing on left, guitar on right, I send to a program I normally use to create video lectures, called ScreenFlow. It gives you a lot of control over things. I just adjust the audio so the backing/guitar balance is right, then center both audio tracks, add a title screen, and I'm done.

    The tone, such as it is, on my clips does not involve any tweaking other than adjusting levels.

    Amazing how hard it is to plays when you actually have the blues...

    Next time, I best ask them to write an Rx for some Howlin Wolf instead!



    The backing track is really fun if you want some pep in your step:

    Been playing with the above backing track (thanks!).

    In the first clip, I was interested to see if my Strat can take the place of the archtop for these quick and dirty recordings because I was getting fed up with the strings plinking into the phone mic. Yuk. Anyway, I'm thinking I don't need no Tele The second clip is a snippet of some fusion playing which I may take a bit further.
