I recorded a couple of backing track jams over the long weekend. It was actually quite fun this time. I often get really hard on myself when I record something; I guess I just need to do it more.

I used my Line 6 Toneport for both of these clips, and the guitar of choice was my Fender Deluxe Players Strat.

For the jazzblues clip, I used a clean amp model with a bit of tubescreamer stompbox model added in for extra grit.

On the funky jam, I used the Marshall Super Lead model with gain cranked and a distortion stompbox model added for more gain.

Let me know what you think of these clips. I think the lead tone on the groovin clip could have been turned up a bit perhaps?

The backing tracks can be download at:

I used Garageband with my MacBook Pro to record this. The software used with the Line 6 Toneport is called Gearbox - I like it.

I hope I can find more time this fall and winter to do more recording. I would really like to get proficient at getting stuff done fast when recording. Usually drums is the biggest pain. I know I can tweak the drum loops in Garageband, but I haven't really tried it much. My plan is to get used to working with the drums in Garageband, and then hopefully I can get some of my own material recorded.
