> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* 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?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Mate, a mic is always handy, but if you don't have a cab to use it with, it's a bit useless in what regards guitar recording. For the voice though, I'd go for the SM58 smile.gif Isn't that the holy grail of affordable vocal microphones? biggrin.gif

No worries mate, although it was a very fun session smile.gif Watch out for the replay and stay tuned for next week - It'd be great to have you there with us smile.gif How's that new take coming along - The technical difficulties one, I mean?

Working on that one, have one little part that I am working on . Should take me no more then a week to
redo it. First on a slower tempo and build it up again.

I am also jamming with some lecturers in a couple of weeks of my school and so im also working on that setlist/
songs like Uprising from Muse. So it is a whole different thing to learn but I enjoy it.

I am planning to film both of these in the upcoming week.

also what do you think of this device : http://www.musicstore.de/en_EN/EUR/Prodipe...-PCM0012164-000
and this one http://www.musicstore.de/en_EN/EUR/Peavey-...-PCM0010587-000

They are both usb interface and are pretty cheap.

Hey Marc, looking forward to see your vids mate smile.gif

As for the interfaces... hmmm, the only one that I've had experiences with (the vocals for the Days of Confusion EP were recorded on it) was this one:



It's about 133 euros at Thomann, but it's worth the buck - do you have a budget established already?

Yes as said earlier in this topic, I currently have 50 euro's spare. But in 2 months I have a holiday in which I can work more, So its either going to be a usb interface that fits my budget, or a second hand mic. ( its a poor students life )

Oh, alright man, but anyway, in my opinion, the audio interface is a priority in respect to the microphone. It will provide far better recording quality at home, as for the mic, if you don't have the cab at home, you can't quite use it for guitar recording.

I ordered the Behringer UCG102, it is a simple usb interface. Got pretty good reviews and is really cheap (ordered for 20 euros )
This is a review of it . hope to get it this week biggrin.gif

Hey Marc, out of what I am seeing it looks like it's an ok'ish piece of gear. Now, you need to try it yourself to see if you have made a good investment.

Of course, I am waiting for that take of PG's tune and now you can record it with your new audio interface wink.gif

Yes well as said ordered from HongKong, it usually takes a week biggrin.gif In the meantime I have time to perfect my take.
I am also jamming on videos on youtube ( its called guitarmaps ) where there is a backingtrack and it shows which scale you can
improvise on. I really like it and it gets me out of my daily rush of playing the same licks over and over again

That would be so cool !

While practising yesterday my high e snatched of the guitar, so I have to get to a guitar shop to replace the thing,
While I was practising I found out that my tone sounded a lot better without the reverb.

Oh and another thing, since I am going to use guitarrig again with my guitarlink I found that my boss gt5 can act as a midi footpedal for the program, just have to get a midi-usb cable, that way I can use express pedals in guitarrig.

So my quest for today is getting a new e string.

Oh, bummer! I was shooting my April lesson for GMC and guess what, my small 350W lamp went out and I had no spares... Needless to say, I will have to wait till the bulb gets here and then re-record mostly everything. I hate it when I'm a cloud head and forget to buy spares...

Oh man , How I love the song "Grace" of your album. I really like the the harmonized part " Find another memory, all your dreams of ecstacy". Some riffs remind me somehow of Velvet Revolver ( not the heavy parts ). Overall its awesome.

are there any unreleased songs somewhere to find on myspace ?

Hey mate! 'Grace' is a song that is very dear to me - it was written for my girlfriend, before she became my girlfriend smile.gif It has a nice story behind it..

Well, at this moment there are various live recordings on youtube, but they are not good quality. Otherwise, nothing officially released smile.gif But... soon wink.gif

as you probably are wondering what I have done this couple of weeks

THIS

]

Its not with my new usb interface, since I have had little time to set it up ( will do video about that )
But this was the memorizing stuff I told about. I feel like I trained my muscle memory.
