Thanks, hopefully im making some progress. The monitor setup makes it easy to just lay in bed and track bass with no headphones....which is huge in a way because I hate having that headphone cord hanging down while im trying to play guitar or bass
I think I am going to try to put my guitar amp and mic in my adjacent 2nd bedroom and run the mic cable back into this room. I can go from my guitar to a pedal in the floor and then run a cable into the other room. I just checked and it will work
So whats that mean? It means I can lay in bed and track guitars using my monitors. No headphones
This actually will be huge because one of the impediments to me recording was that I hated going into the living room and recording while sitting in a chair because basically my back etc would give out after like 2 hours lol. And it always felt sort of "official" when I went into the living room to record so id have that certain tense feeling. I do all of my practicing and scales etc laying in bed watching youtube and that is by FAR my best hand position for wailing some lead licks so this could REALLY be huge if I can get this going. In any case it will take away a decent size impediment to me getting songs finished
This particular jam with this groovy bass pattern. Dunno if ill "finish" it or not. I might try an experiment where I just write lyrics to the bass jam with no guitars and then add guitars last. Writing with bass first gives a totally different feel to the song because you almost always make that bass a little more busy and groovy than you normally would and then its a matter of trying to fit a guitar on top of it.
Anyway, thanks for checking it out
