    Disclaimer- For the actual recording process I had an engineer. I try my best to stay out of the way during recording and especially during mixing. So I can’t give you specifics, but here’s what I observed...

    In the top photo- The amp is in a vocal booth with a Beta 57 and a Sennheiser for close mics, door to main room open with a Neumann microphone out in the main room. I doubled the guitar start to finish. So there’s like six tracks on the DAW. I didn’t use any pedals but I know the engineer applied compression and ‘verb plug ins. Same exact set up for the bass track.
    Thank you for asking:hbang:

    This is the studio-

    Cool tune bro, that bass sounds great through the origin, are you also doing the vocals??
    Like the rasp in the vocal work, fits the song perfectly !
    Thanks for sharing some more of your work!
    Cheers Mitch

    Cool piece, all you have to do now is put some lyrics and lengthen it.
    Cheers Mitch

    Yessir that’s me doin’ my best to carry a tune.

    That rasp is the result of lack of training, and incessantly gigging dive bars, screaming to be heard over the din. Anymore for live work I prefer to play in a band with a singer:agreed:

    Thank you for listening and commenting!:)

    Thanks Mitch! I will try to finish . The third rhythm at the end was the first riff I started with. Once I put 2 bass tracks it changed everything . I have to tighten it up.

    So this is a jam that @mcblink, rex and I did about a week ago so it is a little rough. It is pretty long but hay it's a jam that we recorded on mcblinks phone. In this one I'm not the one that sounds like a dieing gorilla. I will only be leaving this up for a short period.

    I really like the first 6 minutes or so and the couple solos that mcblink did one at about 11 minutes the other about 12 minutes. This was a jam with rex on base me on rhythm mcblink lead to a generic drum track.

    What do you guys like or dislike about it?
    And yes it is to long

    Dig the title, nice guitar interplay too. It’s not everyday you find two guitar players meshing like that. I like the bass too, has a good snarl to it.

    ...used to have a thermos like that. Was staring at it the whole time reliving my sordid construction worker past:lol:

    Thanks for the complements
    I'm sure @rex and @mcblink would say thanks also. I sent blinky a clip of the rhythm the day before. So he came by the next day. We jammed it for a couple hours making small changes. Then rex stopped by and came up with what I think was a great base line for this riff

    I still like that heavy ass drive this
    jam has, you need to leave it up though!
    That blink on the massive pinch harmonics yes?
    You guys have a great collaboration going on an as Netlocal says it is a blessing to be able to have 2 guitars slam so in unison together!
    Cheers Mitch :cheers::pirate: :shred2:
