Hello out there! I started learning guitar 5 months ago and thought I'd make my first recording for fun. Been a GMC member for a few weeks and have gleaned alot. The track is inspired by Gabriel Leopardi's blues lessons. I took some of the licks and slowed them down to more my current tempo. I recorded using a telecaster (standard with Fender SNC pickups)> Zoom g2.1u floor effect>laptop. It's short and not perfect of course, but I like the tune. Hope you like...No More Walkin Easy Street cool.gif (Of course any feedback is appreciated.)

Very nice - I can hear Gabriels influence in there. Very clean recording too - what software did you use?

Thanks for the complement. I used the Cubase LE software that came with the Zoom. I really like the Zoom...you can tweak the sound to your hearts content. biggrin.gif

Thanks very much Hemlock. Yea, I've decided in my budding days as a guitarist to focus on the blues. Besides being fun to play and sounding great, I love the expression that can be stuffed into a single note cool.gif

Thanks sb81! I put Fender Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups (SCN) into my MIM tele and have been amazed at the tone difference from the stock pickups. And a real plus (that I think adds to the tone in recording) is there is absolutely no 60 cycle hum. I'm planning on copper shielding the pickguard in a few days which should even make it more quiet. Just the notes...that's what I like cool.gif

I went straight from the Zoom g2.1u floor effect to the laptop computer (via usb cable).

Oh alright, i wonder if my BOSS GT-6 can do that. I will have to find out, i left it at my old house, which was silly. Otherwise i will have to find a better recording device. Thanks

Thanks Slash. I kept it very basic so there was less chance for a mistake (80bpm, Am-Dm7-Em7 progression [Ebm7 as passing chord] with blues scale on top). Practicing Gabriel's blues lessons has helped alot. wink.gif

Yea, I love my Tele biggrin.gif ! First guitar I bought was an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, which I really like, but when I got the Telecaster about a month ago I fell in love with it. It's hard to put down...which is a good thing! cool.gif

Nice job!

I have a tele and a zoom g2 also, I find that it's rather good for cleans but once you try to distort it, it all turns sour, for distortion I prefer my Flextone.

But yeah, I'm liking it, miles better than I was at 5 months.

Thanks Owen. I haven't messed with the distortions on the Zoom much, probably because I didn't like the canned patched models on it initially (probably could get something good if I spent some time tweaking it). With the extra EQ, nice reverbs, nice effects it makes some sweet cleans. I have a Roland Cube 30x that does a nice job with distortion. I'm really wanting to get my hands on a Fender Blues Jr. cool.gif

Sweet tone,

Nice job. I can imagine myself having a drink in a bar and you playing in the background wearing some black sun glasses.

There are a lot of people that like to go like hell. That was a good example how faster is not aways better.

Well done

Thanks Guitarman, Atomix, and Scoob! biggrin.gif I'm glad you guys liked the tune, and it spurs me on to learn some more licks and produce another! I played so much over the weekend that I developed a little pain in my fret hand, so I'm taking it easy. Taking the opportunity to do some brain work...MUSIC THEORY...and listening to "Little Wing"... both Jimi's and Stevie's for inspiration. cool.gif
