    was inspired to play some monk yesterday.

    played some monks mood.

    http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=791352

    quick question for all you recording peeps.

    i've just started home recording, got myself a nice mic pre- the api a2d converter.

    needless to say i'm very green when it comes to home recording.

    to me this track sound "boomy".

    I eq'd out some of the bass, and that certainly helped, but I was wondering how i can make it sound less boomy, or if it even sounds boomy. :)

    it's with my tele through a deluxe reverb and a 57.

    thanks!!!

    very nice aram. this is one of my favorite monk tunes. have you heard the solo version that sco does? it's on an older hal galper cd and it kills!

    thanks everybody!

    i love recording at home now. i picked up an api a2d preamp to use with my mbox, and now i realize why i always hated recording at home:

    the mbox sounded like crap!!!!!

    i've been recording constantly since i got it, just a 57 and my deluxe reverb. i'm hoping on putting out an album of solo guitar in the next year or so.

    jack, i picked up a copy of that sco version of monk's mood off itunes.

    JESUS!!!

    time to go back to the woodshed.

    :)

    Wow. Now that brings a smile. And I'd bet Ted Greene is smiling too. You really let the piece breathe.

    When can we hear "Introspection" ?

    thanks guys. you all are turning me on to some great music.

    i'm embarassed to say I hadn't heard ted greene before- jesus!!!!!

    went to buy a ted greene cd and read this online review from a man named steve vai:

    "Ted Greene has the deepest ears that music can flow through.
    Ted Greene has the deepest ears that music can flow through. He is totally in touch with the potential of harmonic constructions. On this record he defies the technical physics of Jazz melody chord voicings but creates an organic and inspired listening delight. A must for anyone who puts their fingers on an instrument with strings. Steve Vai - Guitarist "

    i then downloaded it on itunes- holy crap!!!!!

    how can i have been missing out on this my whole life!!!!

    That was just beautiful. Loved the sensitivity in your playing and thought the sound was good.
