Thanks Gabriel!
I use the suggested Reaper plugins for the sound and I just put the mix 100%, which makes me a little bit anxious, because it seems that every single playing detail matters! But that is cool since that is how I will be a better player!
Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for the feedback Gab!
Actually I check my guitar tuning every time before I REC and it was in tune according to my tuner...So I don't know what it was...Maybe it was the pressure to the strings...I'll work and reREC it next week!
As for the tone, what would you suggest me to do? Maybe add the TubeScreamer overdrive plugin to add more attack?
The chain that I used in REAPER is
focusrite audio interface input gain 25%->LeXtac (blue channel, gain 70%,pre EQ brighter, middle 40% contour 100% and boost ON
What would you suggest me to change?


P.S. I do not know how to work an equalizer for REAPER

Thanks

Hi George, let's work on your tone here.

Is it possible for you to share a wav files of your only guitar take processed, and also a files with your guitar without any amp or process?

No problem, but how do I do that? Do I simply render a file with unprocessed guitar and another one with VST processed guitar and upload it?
Sorry if these are silly questions but I am very new to recording...

If I can understand I made a rar file below with two files included: the 1st is the guitar without any effects and the second has the chain of TSE-Lextac-Kefir(catharsis s-preshigh)

Great! If possible please share a print screen of the processes that you've added to your guitar tone.

Hi mate, I've been experimenting with your guitar tone and it's not bad what you've got. I think that some little adjustments could improve it but the main problem that your REC take had must be related to your video rendering settings or maybe the final mix that you get from your Reaper project.

If you check your video, you'll notice that the quality of your guitar tone is much worse than the files that you've sent me. It seems that your guitar is being cancelled or something.

At this point I would like to ask you to send me your "guitar processed + backing track mix" that you get from your Reaper project. Is it possible?

Sure here is the final mix
After I record the guitars with the backing track I simply choose render file without doing anything else and the file that I uploaded below is the result
[attachment=47180:basic_ro...le_track.rar]

Then I choose the video from windows movie maker, I shut down the video volume and I blend them only with the music volume. That is simply what I do...

Thanks for the feedback Gab! I understand your points!
What about the tone in the last file that I uploaded?
Also in the last REC (beginner sweep picking) I raised the music volume when mixing with the video...

It sounds much better! I think that the problem with the other lesson was the audio quality of your video. Now the problem is solved.

Alright then!!! Thanks!
I have a question about the collab: I downloaded the provided backing track and it alredy has a solo after the first minute...
What should I do? Should I play and write a lead for the other sections?

Hi George! You'll also find an extended version at the thread without the solo. You can record solos and ideas everywhere. smile.gif
