Hey guys smile.gif Can you remember when you first tried to record yourself playing guitar? Let's share some stories biggrin.gif I'm sure we all have fun stuff to talk about!

I for instance, remember that day, back in 2005 when a friend and guitar teacher came to my place and set Sonar 3 on my PC. I felt overwhelmed when I realized the tons of things I could do by recording myself. That's when it started for me smile.gif

How was it for you?

Cosmin

Good thread idea! i remember recording myself just on a handy cam before I got in to computer based recording and thinking how terrible I was at playing things I thought I could play well. Nothing like the cold truth of video!

I remember quite well:


Attached File  Faithful.cpr.mp3 ( 1.91MB ) Number of downloads: 31



This is it!

I actually had the stuff needed to record audio with for quite a while, just had never given it a try. What finally made me try it was someone mentioning how listening to yourself play is a great way to judge your progress. Now I record virtually everything I play, and it does help me to know where my strong points and weak points are. I'm hoping to one day be able to do video as well as audio! smile.gif

I remember being forced to have a bass in one recording at home and since I had no clue on virtual instruments laugh.gif and no bass player to rely on, I used the 7 string and thought it was pretty cool to be featured as a bass smile.gif

I remember that in 1999 I started playing with a power metal band called Damnation and the bass player, Marcelo Yakko had Cakewalk 9 in is computer and used to compose and record songs using it.I was blown away with it! It was like paradise!

I dont have my first recordings since i deleted them a long time ago and i really regret it. I remember doing a cover of the song Carousel by Axel Rudi Pell and i played it in the wrong tuning. It sounded bad.

Man i wish i would have kept them

I think the first time my guitar was ever recorded properly was in a studio.. but when recording myself, it was a Fostex 4 track tape machine ! wink.gif

Actually, I tell a lie.. before that we had a Philips tape machine in the house and it had a little inbuilt microphone so you could record any sound that it would pick up. I used to record little riffs and licks that way !

biggrin.gif I used to record myself telling stories on the tape recorder when I was about 6 or 7 - you would most probably laugh until you would drop, if you heard what was happening there.. biggrin.gif

I found the first proper multitrack recording I did myself from 2003 the other day. I'll upload it to soundcloud at the weekend and post it.

It took me 15 hours if I remember correctly, using Cool Edit Pro 2 and Drums on Demand.

There was a lot of cursing when screwing up a near perfect take right near the end of the song and only playing a simple part. but that goes hand in hand with recording in my experience!
