So getting the hang of recording with drums. Here's a really quick riff that I put together with the drums. Dual tracks panned L/R. I realize I need some heavier gauge strings since these poor 9s are going out of tune very very easily. Using my Jackson 7 with the 81-7x.

:cheers:

EDIT: Will post up a more up to date version when I get my heavier gauge strings in.

The guits ain't panned dude, coming out down the centre, and the drums are wayyy quiet, but nice riffs!

I'm usually the last person to say it, but yeah - definitely doubletrack and pan. :yesway: Good idea, like where you're going with it. DT it and get the riffing tight, then shred face over it. :scream2:

Thanks - it was my first attempt at tracking with drums that were programmed. I found it extremely hard to keep it in time/tune because the strings were jus tlike spaghetti. Decided to hold off on the recording till I get some heavier gauge strings. I just reheard this and yes I need to improve a whole lot.

I don't see how 9s would make it go out of tune. Is it a floyd?
Yup and it's got only 2 springs. I'm deciding on heavier gauge strings as my pick attack is just too much for the light strings as well as getting a strobe tuner for proper/perfect intonation.

As far as keeping in time - just slow down a bit until you get it tight. :yesway:
Yeah - just gotta practice. I'm really rusty but just wanted to let some anger out due to get my ass kicked in school :lol:

Nothing like recording for shining a bright light into the dark corners of one's playing and seeing all the ugly little critters that come scurrying out.

Playing more tightly will come with patience, time and practice, you'll get there. I don't think anyone plays super tight to a click and drum track the first time they try.
