1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Many good things going on your track:

    The good:
    • Played with smooth and flowing character
    • Nice tempo changes among different sections
    • Pleasant tone
    • Competent production -- properly compressed without sounding compressed

    Suggestions for improvements:
    • Sounds like it's tracked with a direct-recording modeler. If mic-ed properly, the fundamental tone is good enough to stand on its own without the chorus effect. The effect and the direct recording edge cheapens the overall feel of the recording.
    • Some breathing room between phrases

    Checked out other tunes on your page -- they are all very nice!

    Thanks for the input Ari,

    Yeah, you nailed it. I didn't have enough space in my room to set up mikes for amps and all. On the solo stuff I pluged my guitar into Pro Tools and just played. It's all solo guitar, no over dubs, except for the band songs. Those were done in a professional studio. I didn't do any of the engineering on those. Since the recording I stoped using chorus even live. I found it has a tendency to make the guitar sound like it's out of tune.

    Thanks Marcello.

    I'm glad you like it. I know this is pretty different from most of the stuff you hear on this forum.

    Hi Cristof,

    Tunes are on the way. I included Surfer Girl which Soundclick won't let me post because it's a Beach Boys tune.
