    This is a little wanking take I did just to test my new sound card(E-Mu 1820m).
    It's very sloppy, but I want your opinions on my crappy engineering skills....
    EBMM Steve Morse-VHT GP3 preamp-G Force in parallel-VHT 2/90/2-VHT 4x12 miced with an E609....
    No plug ins, I wanted it raw for now....
    This is the rhythm channel with the gain at 10 O clock. At 1:44 I hit an MI Audio Blue Boy
    Let me know what you think.....about the guitar sound, not the crappy playing...:D

    Hi Steve,

    As it turned out I liked both the sound AND the playing.
    Is the clean sounds also this amp?

    Cheers,

    Fantastic Steve. I dug the playing and tone. You have a very nice feel and flow. I listened this morning btw. Sorry to take so long to comment.

    No, but they are very similar.
    I have no clue who did the backing track....
    But I always have my OD100SE and OD50 for cleans...:D
    But the cleans on all the VHT's I have are excellent.
    I hope to record a full tune with all 3 channels in the next few weeks...It is a very flexable amp...

    Nice playing and the guitar tone is perfect--I was actually expecting to hear a bridge pickup and lots of treble scream coming up in the solo!

    One thing to keep in mind when recording/mixing the backing trax is that you don't want the keys and the rhythm guitar taking up the same sonic landscape as the solo work. Sounded to me like both backing instrument tracks were sharing too much of the same frequencies as the solo.

    A scooped guitar track using the 2 position (bridge/middle) on a strat might have gotten out of the way a little more. Also an electric piano tone with a low mid vocus would have been there fine and with less volume also.

    Great playing ... third time through your clip!
