    How the Mighty Have Fallen

    A shot glass of whiskey

    Maybe a smoke to get high

    We’ve all got demons

    We feed them just to get by


    There always seem to be

    Hypocrites who point at you and me

    Celebrating alcohol

    Television tells us

    Go out and buy your

    12 pack dream


    May all your guilty pleasures

    Comfort you in your hour of need

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen, have fallen


    Shouldn’t you choose how

    To handle the stress and the pain

    We’ve all got demons

    We feed them just to keep sane


    There always seem to be

    Hypocrites who point at you and me

    Corporation choose for us

    Drink this but don’t smoke that

    Go out and buy your

    12 pack dream


    May all your guilty pleasures

    Comfort you in your hour of need

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen, have fallen

    Thanks for listening. I use an Apollo interface. I am using Pro Tools 2019 as my DAW. Just my preference. I mentioned in OP i used a LesPaul. I used an Archon Fifty and JVM 410HJS which were linked via a radial Switchbone. Each amp went into a JCM 800 cabinet. I mic’d up each cabinet with one shure beta 57 close mic on the grill cloth and one Neumann TLM 102 about 4 feet from each cabinet. I then multitrack each part 4 times. This gives each mic its own track. I then mix and pan accordingly.

    on vocals I used the Neumann TLM 102. I track until I am happy with the performance. The chorus were several tracks using harmonies and blending until they sound right. No autotune!!!

    Bass guitar used was an Ibanez soundgear bass directly into the Apollo preamp. I used some compression and eq.

    Slate SSD drums were used. I route each drum to its own audio track and mix from there. Convert the midi to an audio wave.

    After performances are complete I mix. I use assorted UAD and other plugins. Most important thing I pay attention to are gain levels and headroom. This is an art form so we all have different approaches. I then tweak and tweak. Once happy I bounce to a wave file and use sime mastering software to finalize.

    Sounds great man!
    That TLM 102 will go down as a hidden jem for recording guitar. Your description of the position is ideal as well.
    I am one of the owners of Zombiecabs IRs and we used the TLM 102 in about the same position. It also works really well for clean tones up close on a T75 loaded cab.
