    Yep - it was me, but don't worry , I'm sure the mix will be better without  ;)

    I caused all sorts of hassle trying to get an acoustic in. That was the one and only time where I have thought a Variax would have been a fine idea...
    Nope... deffo need you on it...
    do you have a way of recording your acoustic? even if it’s with a smart phone or other recorder?
    Ooh blimey. Nothing sophisticated certainly. 

    I could try recording it as a voice memo on iPhone 6, but that's about as good as I've got.  I can ask a colleague if he's got anything better (he does a  fair bit of home recording but I think that's straight into a Mac)...

    Ok, have msg'd @Guitar_Slinger and offered to re-record the lead for this but he said to go ahead and post without redoing the guitar....

    So Honky Tonk V1 with @TTony, @darthed1981, @markblagdon and @Tone71 and if you listen really hard @Guitar_Slinger very faintly in the background :(




    So I’m on the RH channel - with @tone71 on the left side. The guitars intertwine pretty well for 75% of the track! Would improve a second time through. @tone71 where did you pick up the licks for that track? I’m hoping to add some of those into my part for the next Jam? Were you in standard tuning (I was)?

    Morning peeps...

    listening to all the tracks in the car, does anyone else think all the vocals are a bit low in the mix? 
    Could this be the problem?
    Could well be... vocals just seems a bit low... 
    For a group of guitarists without a real vocalist amongst us, I'd say that the vocals are high enough in the mix
    ;)
    Hey! I resemble that remark!

    I was playing in open g but was aware that a string or 2 went out of kilter midway through so backed off a bit, now glaringly obvious without 2 guitars to hide behind!!!

    Pretty sure I got most of it from JustinGuitar, the solo can also be played in open g really easily.



    The video that was posted on the other thread that is closed had all 3 guitars and I thought it sounded excellent, it was like we were all playing separate parts but they worked really well. 

    Your part was excellent btw.

    Ok peeps... Whilst we wait for the missing guitar from mr @McToot...

    @markblagdon thumping the drums... @Bridgehouse on Bass Banjo... @munckee holding down guitar duties... and Vocal performance of the day has to go to @Jonathangus... Good work Fella!!!

    Comfy Numb for your ears:




    Added some background keys and removed most of my guitar to add some space to the mix...

    @markblagdon I think you've progressed since we did Tush at Huddersfield (link below). It's really quite high for a bloke to sing it.

    Thanks for highlighting that @vasselmeyer - there’s definitely an improvement. I think I need a few singing lessons to help me work out my range and when to drop down in pitch rather than strain up high.

    Fanks chaps!... this thread will be used as a defence at my commital hearing :)

    would have liked to have spent a lot longer longer on each track tbh but I knew I had a quiet week so just ploughed through them as best I could... will get the remaining track done and then send the raw files to everyone that played on them...

    If you haven’t already got a DAW download something like reaper or if you are on a Mac GarageBand will be perfectly fine for mixing.

    Would be interesting to see what other folk come up with!...

    Thank you for your kind words.

    And thank you also for your work in pulling all of these together - and once again to @TTony , @Bridgehouse @drumswithpoopot , and anyone else I've forgotten who made the day such a success.

    To echo what others have said - if anyone was thinking of going to one of these but thought better of it - just do it.  It doesn't matter how good (or otherwise) you are - I was probably the least technically accomplished player there - there will be something you can do, even if it's just bashing out power chords on Teenage Kicks.  Have a go - you won't regret it.

    @slacker Cheers, that was me, but it was from the Huddersfield jam in January, not from your session. I just linked it for @markblagdon to compare his vocals.

    Thanks a lot for this and everything @poopot - I'm amazed you managed to get those two iPhone mp4s on there. 

    Trying to recreate the mistakes that I/we made on the original live room take was amazingly difficult. I had to do about 7 or 8 takes to get it close.

    The count in from yourself made it very simple!... plus the fact that the playing on the rest of the track is nice and steady made it an easy job!

    Right then peeps...

    You should all have had the links to download the RAW files (those that played on the day anyway)...

    @TTony has very kindly bought (out of his own pocket) and sent me 3 USB sticks to put the files on.

    1 is going to him so that leaves 2 other USB sticks to be posted on a "first to msg me" basis. and Just to say they will be going out in tomorrows post so if you want one hurry up... If no one else wants one all three will go to Tony.

    What I would suggest is that if you do want a USB stick, when you get it from me, download the files and send the stick on to someone else who wants it, they can then send it on etc etc... eventually all 3 can make their way back to Tony!

    Sound like a plan?

    EDIT All accounted for.

    Ok, @Tone71 and @Brocco have a USB stick each on the way to them... I am now officially passing the USB batton to them!...

    If you want one send them a pm and they will forward the stick onto you!...
