    Nice looking LP! I like that a lot! You don’t mess around with mic’s either, putting a Neumann on there:applause:

    Thanks again, JParry. That was the 102's first run since I just got it. I had a U87 for years but I sold it. The 102 is kinda like getting it back in cardioid pattern, which is all I use. A good savings needless to say. Lol.

    :cheers:

    What distance was the Neumann to the Grille Cloth?
    A good large Condenser Mic is something i need next, I guess these have to be further away to capture more of the Room?

    Honestly I just stuck it there. It was probably about 6 inches away mid cone angled a bit towards center cone. I didn't get fussy with it since we're not doing the White album. No, I didn't get "room" at all. Ideally I would have but it's not even treated. Classic close-mic I guess.

    I'd recommend a TLM102 big time. Although the TLM103 costs some more it get a lot of criticism, whereas the 102 is quite respected. It's a lot like the U87 in cardioid pattern only it doesn't have the darkness of the U87. The U87 will pop out at you more since it and the 103 are pumped 4db over the 102. For that you can push your pre up 4db if you really wanted to. I love the 102 and have 2 now + a set of KM184's - which are fantastic too.

    If you can't get new, used or "open box" are at some nice prices. Careful on used though - some look shabby and who knows, might not even have the right capsule, among other things.

    The Gefell M930 is way ahead of its cost in sound too. It's about a grand.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I currently use a Sennheiser E906, which is of course kind of a standard mic for Guitar Cabs and so I'm specially looking at an additional Mic for setting it up further away. My Room is also not treated acoustically- Lots of stuff standing around so there are less flat wall surfaces helps, though :D.

    Nice take @Riffraff .
    I'm still learning and trying to improve my soloing skills. I know there are a few hiccups here and there and you and the others here are a few steps above me . Playing with Guitarists that are more skilled and experienced than me will hopefully help me to improve. Thanks again for making it possible!:cheers:

    You did well bro. There was one sour note in the beginning I edited out but otherwise it's a great man. You have a clam in one spot, I do too. We all have those which is why this is the CLAM SHACK. :cool:

    I jam on a collaboration website where the talent level is quite high. Definitely over my skill set and that's helping me so much. I push myself harder and learn a lot from the guys I'm playing with. I can honestly say my skills are improving for the first time in decades and I'm really happy about that. I need to jam with other people to grow as a player.

    Dude.....that's awesome. :shred:

    You got that done fast. I usually fight with my gear for hour or so just trying to dial in a tone I like. :rolleyes:

    Thanks, Riff. Yea, I was kinda looking for something to early. Lol. I like walked right to it. Few off notes, but I don't think they stick out too much. (maybe they do - lol).

    That was fun. Thanks Riff'ster Raff for taking your time to do this @hit. :metal::metal:

    I think it sound good, Eric. You're keeping up and getting in there. A few "off" notes?? Shit, get used to it because THAT never ends. Lol.

    There are cheesers in mine too.

    That's why there are studio retakes, overdubs, and sometimes doing things a piece at a time.

    :cheers:

    I'm hookin' ya up bro.
    Here's a similar blues track I just made without drums and has space after 2:45 for more leads so we can get some multi player action going.

    62 BPM, 6/8 in Bm
