    Killing floor

    An old Howling Wolf song. I'm playing all instruments and singing. I'm not satisfied with my lead guitar work on this...it's good in places but I think it could be better in other places.

    Beware of buying vintage stuff online

    Song in progress

    I'm close in the lyric. Trying to come up with a good melody: "He gave up Heaven for me When I'm feeling weary From trials I face each day And I think on what I've given up As I walk this Christian way. I'm reminded yet again Just what Jesus left behind When he left that holy place to bear the...

    country vocal with Studiio projects C-1 (U87 eq mod)

    I modded this Studio Projects C-1 mic. Gave the U87 eq mod a shot. The mic already sounded good. I think it makes a hell of a good country male vocal mic after the mod. It isnt as shrill as it was...although it wasnt a really shrill mic to start with. My vocal level is pretty hot on this so...

    Guitar build

    I haven't been posting much lately. I have been fiddling around with a couple of guitar builds. One is a Tele. I have had this body and neck for a while. Finally decided to work on it. I decided to paint it gold firemist metallic. It is a color that fender introduced in 1966. I didn't really...

    how to get rid of unwanted audio files

    I'm using an old version of cubase LE. When I record I may do multiple takes of guitar parts, vocals, drums, and so on. All these multiple takes and edits are stored in the "audio" folder. It dosen't take long for that folder to become massive. It's full of audio snippets that allow multiple...
