Ok, so I have started recording! Currently it is just guitar as I do not have a microphone yet, but that could very well be taken care of before christmas. Anyway, the guitar forum I am a member of has recurring jam sessions where someone puts together a backing track and anyone who feels like it can record a solo over it and submit the recording to the forum for final mixing by Gary, one of the members. I have taken part in the last two jams (numbers four and five) and below are the links to the relevant threads.
Unofficial Warmoth Jam #4 (I was actually on a break from the forum due to some drama, but came back for the jam, mine is the last one – my forum name is “kboman”)
Unofficial Warmoth Jam #5 (my solo is third)
I have some more stuff I am fiddling with, but that is for later. Thanks for listening if you do, I really am in some excellent company.
