This is the first time I've written and recorded anything... ever. laugh.gif So be gentle but, I do want some constructive criticism. I was just fooling around and this came out. What do you think?

Thanks for sharing smile.gif

I think your distortion is way too trebly, you should add more middle and bass (or less treble) to get a more "fat" sound.
It might just be your recording equipment though, but just an advice smile.gif


edit:
Well I'm at work on the smallest pc-speakers ever, so that might be the reason too tongue.gif
I'll give it another listen when I get home!

Well audiopaal... I don't think it's your speakersystem. I've got the same here.

As audiopaal mentioned... It can become something good. I'm not sure If you can make some drums under it, and make the guitar a little bit heavier. More middle and bass and you've got a good beginning. (Just like audiopaal said).

Ok, good to know smile.gif
I really think you should play around more with you're guitarsound and when you find something you really like,
record with it smile.gif
And if you want to add bass, drums or both but haven't got the equipment to do so,
let me know and I'll help you out if you want smile.gif


edit: typo.

Yea, I had the bass all the way down because I recorded this at at 4 am, and I didn't want to wake my roommate laugh.gif. I haven't spent much time messing with effects since I'm still using this really crappy starter amp that came with my guitar heh. I do plan on getting a better one soon though.

As far as drums and bass go, do you mean software? If so, that would be really cool. Btw, what would you recommend for a good versatile amp in the $100 price range?

Thanks for the feedback.

Tony

Hehe, you're a good friend laugh.gif
Ok, yeah it's a good idea to spend money on an amp you're happy with..
Makes you sound better and that makes you wanna play more smile.gif

Yeah, if you don't have the software to record more instruments and you got a song you wanna hear in a "band situation", I can help you out if you want..
I don't mind recording them for you, or helping you out with recommending software you could use smile.gif

As far as an amp goes, I'd advise you to spend a little more than $100.
The VOX AD30VT (Valvetronix) amp you can get for under $200 on Ebay, and that's a really good amp!
I got the bigger version, VOX AD50VT 2x12, and I absolutely love it smile.gif
There is also a cheaper VOX AD15VT, but I'm not sure of the price.
This should probably be more then enough for home practicing. What's also great about these amps is that there is a Line-out recording output which makes you record with the guitarsound in the amp with really great results smile.gif
The built in effects are really good as well!!

You also have Marshall MG15 DFX at $150.

Musiciansfriend.com sells Line6 Spider III 15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo at $99

And the Roland Cube 20x is also a very good choice at around $100 smile.gif

There is also a few Crate and Kustom amps, but I've never tried these myself..

There might be others knowing of more amps in your pricerange as well, the most important thing is that you get something you're happy with and like the sound of! If there's anything else, just ask! smile.gif


Hopefully this was of some help to you smile.gif



edit: the usual, typo smile.gif

That really nice. I haven't gotten to that point yet, but when I do I might take you up on that. wink.gif

Thanks for you suggestions. I'll do some more research and decide soon. A friend of a friend offered to get me a good on his old Marshall AVT20 ($50 instead of $200 new). That sounds good, but my only concern is I've heard Marshals aren't as versatile as some others

I'll let you know what I decide. wink.gif

I think its not bad.. kinda simple.
try to do something with more chords to get a more
dramatic sound, if thats what you want.

its pretty good for a first recording.
good luck with newer recordings! biggrin.gif
