Let me know what you think

I started a myspace music page for stuff that I'm recording and finally got a clip up. It's very short, unmastered, and you can hear the metronome in the background but fuck it. I'm excited. This shit is taking a LOT of time trying to find out how to work recording software and program in the drum track. Only about 15 seconds long, but I'd appreciate your time and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

I know. Tracking drums on this thing is a bitch and I need to get some headphones so you don't hear the metronome when I'm recording. I just did that since I've been home from work. Thanks for the input!

Got a lot more of the song up. Still tracking drums, but it would mean a lot if you add me as a friend. Thanks!

I went to the link to add you, only to go to my home page and see you already sent me a friend request, haha. The more you work at it, the better it'll sound.

Thanks dude. Yeah, I've spent the last couple of hours getting the people that I actually know off of my personal myspace and sending a friend request to them on the music one. The song I have up is still in it's baby stages.

I hoping that when I'm done it will sound like a full-fledged, studio recorded song. But it's gonna take time and patience.

Have the drums completely tracked and am uploading the entire 5:32 song on myspace. Tomorrow, I plan on retracking the guitar and hoping to get a better, more consistent sound. Then, at some point, I'll need to either go borrow or buy a bass I guess.

Anyways. Hope you enjoy. Didn't expect the song to be as long as it was. That's good though!

Finished tracking the guitar. Sounds 10x better than before, when I was using sound recorder and a mic to just record it off the speakers. Just gotta find out how to add effect in a couple of spots, and mix the parts where the clean and distorted guitar parts overlap. Then bass...and finally vocals, which I'm dreading the shit out of but oh well.

sounds pretty good, not sure if it's the recording but the first guitar you hear sounds a little flat, i think i'd like to hear a little more tone out of those notes.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

It's tuned to C sharp/D flat. Is that what you mean by chance? Also, I'm playing it on a $200 Ibanez I got 8 years ago. The thing rocks out with distortion, but the clean notes have always been lacking.

Make sense now, is it just a stock effect going through the amp when you hear it clean?

Yeah. I have the tone knob in the 2nd (out of three) position. First position is really clean sounding, but lacks any "fullness."

If you have a chorus pedal I'll be that even just a slight bit of chorus might drive out a little tone in the high area, just my thoughts. Don't knock the cheap guitars though, my first guitar was a Powerhouse Fat Strat that I later dropped 2 Fender Noiseless single coil pickups and a Seymour Duncan SH-4 humbucker into. It was perfect for clean blues riffs and then gave me the drive and crunch for the hardrock.

I actually do have a chorus pedal. Never even thought to use it. I might have to see what it can do. Hell, the program I'm using would probably let me just add the effect to what I've already recorded. Just a matter of going through the help menu to find out how to add it. Thanks for the input. I love this little RG-120 guitar. For the most part I play heavier stuff so it works great but wouldn't mind investing a little cash at some point into a PRS Standard 24 or even one of the cheaper SE models. Love the sound those instruments produce.

Sure thing man. I listened to it several times and everything sounds good, just the clean notes sounded a little flat and to me the over sound seemed a little uneven. I'd like to hear it with a little brighter clean tone to see if it balances out, chorus might do the trick. Nothing real heavy on the chorus though. Keep it up though, sounds good.
