> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

ok, there are two options. The first one would be to buy a recording interface like M-audio fast-track and use your amp with a mic in front of it connected to the m-audio (or connecting directly you guitar to the sound card and use a software emulator like Guitar Rig). The other option would be to get a Line Pod that works as guitar emulator and also as recording interface. It's not the most professional option to record but it makes the job really good. what do you think?

I like the option of a mic the best smile.gif I did some research and the M-AUDIO site is pretty cool ! it looks like I could get all the gear I need to record for under $200 ! I have borrowed a friends line 6 floor pod before and didn't really like it so I don't really want to go that route . Although which one will give you the best quality of sound ?

Great! Fast Track and Fast Track Pro would me my choice. Both has great quality for the price. The difference between both is mainly the quantity of inputs. Let me know which one you choose!

Well not to sure yet but I like the Fast Track Pro better I think because it has more inputs smile.gif . Is there any specific type of Mic you would recommend for recording ?

I think that Shure SM-57 is great for electric guitar. It's a versatile mic so you can use it for acoustic, other instruments and even for some vocals. It's not the best option for vocals but it does the job.

Would I need to get a mic stand so I could have the mic in the middle of the amp or could I just lay it in front of the amp ?

Yes! It would be important to have a stand to put the mic in a good position. Check out this video where you will find an interesting tutorial about this:

I use a Line 6 Pod HD 500 for the lessons and also as a multiFx to play live. With my band I play with a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier head and a Marshall 1960b cabinet. I also have an old Marshall mod 8080 that nowadays I only use for practising at home.

The only secret here is PRACTICE. smile.gif

Haha yes practice is very necessary !!! My Hand is sore today from playing so much !! and that rarely happens to me . I think it is because I was playing alot with my pinky finger on the low E string and it is quite a stretch . Also I play standing up 99% of the time and then I find it harder to reach the low E with my pinky .

Oh and btw you got some nice gear smile.gif I really like Mesa Boogie stuff and marshall so you got the best of both worlds !
