I'm never too far away from this place :)
I haven't had a whole lot to add to anything recently, though, so doing more reading than posting.
I've been struggling to get motivated to set up a recording space again and start working on a crap load of new song ideas I have. The last time I did any real recording I had 1 electric guitar and one acoustic guitar, a PC microphone, and a Boss OC-2 pedal for bass lines :D Now I've got a crapload of guitars, a couple of basses, nearly any pedal I could want, a much much better amp, and a decent recording mic,.. and a bad case of the BLAHs.
I think maybe my job drains the energy out of me. Maybe I'm just getting old, heh. At any rate I've got all these snippets where I'll have a idea and just record it through the crappy mic on my desk so I don't forget. I think there's some decent stuff there if I can just get on it and start producing.
One thing that does get me in the mood is the thought of using a different guitar (or two) on each track, which would be a new experience for me. I also look forward to noting each and every pedal used so I can throw some propers back at this forum for the help :)
