My first guitar recording

Postby Macker » Sun Feb 24, 2008 12:25 am

As the title suggests, this is my first time recording guitar. The recording was done in my room, right next to the computer(!)(which was completely covered with pillows to control any noise) because it's the best sounding space in the room.

Recorded with a Rode NT1a and presonus tube pre.

As for the track, it's not got vocals YET, but will do at some point.

comments more than welcome;

I take it this part of the forum isn't viewed much then?

I'd apply a little buss EQ to improve the clarity of your mix and I go back and tune the guitars before I recorded the final session.

Feels like something for use as library or production music (which a good thing), although perhaps this is because this is a TV mix.

Like the former respondent, I'd like to hear the finished track which is a good sign.

I really like this track. I like the harmony when it goes to bridge. I've spin it many times... so hypnotic. I really want to hear it when it's going to be with vocals.
good one, cheers

Very good job so far, You got good timing, and a very sobre melody and harmonies going. Let us know when your done so we can hear the finale (or semi-finale ;) ) Cut.

I agree the "B" string sounds a bit sharp.
But otherwise a great sounding tune there.
Finish this up and bring her back.

I liked the composition and performance and thought that the recording was quite good too. I agree with Reg that the guitar probably needs to be tuned better, but I'm no musician so I certainly couldn't do any better myself.

I think it works well as an instrumental but also look forward to hearing the completed version.

i like this but ill have to agree with others on the guitar tuning issue. timming is good though and overall mix / production. i like the 80s FM bell-like texture that comes in for the chord changes too :lol:

this would be great as a recuring theme for tv documentary perhaps...
