  1. Thank you, @Wim VD1 My neighbor had a 71 tele he let me use, beautiful guitar i might add but is was done by bending and plucking strings at he same time with volume swells. I've been working on this technique for awhile. it is slowly coming around. Danny
  2. Well done @Nutty 1 Ive got hundreds of songs I wrote but haven't taken the time to perform them yet! You are going to be my inspiration to start doing more of my originals. Danny
  3. Thank you @Eracer_Team-DougH@NeilES335 Neil, for my recordings I have a 14 channel mixer. It is made by soundcraft and is able to record directly to my software. The software or DAW I use is Studio one 3.5 artist. As far as recording all the parts, I mic up real drums most of the times, however on some cases i use a drum pad if the drum parts are not that complicated. The pad is just too slow for me. How i record the drums, I make a recording of the original song in my DAW and play along with the song. Then i record the bass and that is plugged in to my amp and i use the direct outs on the line 6 amp. then it goes to my mixer which i can EQ it before it is sent to the DAW which that then is also EQ. I don't add any plugins for the bass parts. I try to keep it simple. Acoustic guitar, I mic up and use the direct outs on the amp and mix them later. I add Reverb,eq,compression,etc... Electric guitar, I used 71 fender tele, its got a great sound for the old school country songs. the amp is a Line 6 and i use the built in affects. That is mic'd in front of the speaker and i also use the direct outs and mix the two later. I don't use plugins that much. I try to keep the sound pretty raw. I'll add different eq's and compression that came with my DAW. That's it basically, hope it helps. Danny
  4. Thank you @Nutty 1 ill try the next time to turn up the volume on the vocals next time. Still not comfortable about my voice. Danny
