Post Just won this guitar solo contest, thought I'd share :)
Hi guys (again :oops: ),

I entered this solo competition for this amazing local band about a month or two ago. Anyway, just tonight I was fortunately announced as the winner and I was lucky enough to win an Epiphone Les Paul. Anyway, as I rejoined the Racer X forum after like 2 years absence this afternoon, I thought I would share. :) I'm glad to see many familiar faces (profiles?) are still here, I learned so much here in the past, I think this is the first thing I've ever posted of me here!

STOKED to be back into sick guitar playing,
Daniel

VERY nice playing, but I agree w. Lamer when it comes to the tone.

:) Thanks guys.

I know the tone was horrible, that was actually running through my whole rig, but for some reason when I hooked it all up to the computer it just came out sounding like pure fuzz. It was my first time computer home recording and despite my best efforts I just had to end up settling on the tone. I would have liked to have mic'd everything, but I don't have any of that available, so I did the best I could with line in. If anyone knows why that happened though I'd be absolutely stoked to know!

Even cheap mics are miles better than line in, unless you have some amp modelling in your set up.

The tone wasn't that bad, really.
I could picture a purist like Kotzen using a tone like that.
It was just a good bit louder than the rest of the music, but hey, you entered a contest & had to stand out. :?

Very cool playing! :D

Yeah great playing! I don't think it's about the mic, though.

From experience, whenever you're gonna record or film, do the following:
1. Tone test - play a bit, move the mic, play a bit, listen, blah blah you get it.
2. Wait a day or go do other stuff for a couple of hours before posting, listen/watch your video again, then decide if it's cool. I sometimes imagine I have the best tone, turns out it is teh sucks.

Post more vids!
