    You don't know what EPIC music is? Lucky you. It's a special type of soundtrack music. Put it on, and the day becomes full of instant drama.

    You can try it and get back to us if you want:

    Miles was amazing. He invented several genres in his career. Listening to On the Corner right now:

    Who's Dr. Bob (or is it Bubb?)?

    MILES DAVIS QUOTE:

    When Reasoner implies that blues and jazz talent in the black community stems from the suffering of slavery, Davis chuckles at the question and says, "It's not that "cliché." He shares a story from his teenage years about a music teacher he knew while attending The Julliard School:

    "She started talking about, 'Well, you know, the black people was despondent at night and that's where the blues came from.' So I raised my hand. I said, 'Listen, my father's rich, my momma's good looking, and I can play the blues.' I've never suffered and don't intend to suffer."

    I don't know. That's the mystery. Anyway, I think I found the answer... Cheerss...

    Miles was a legend. I've never met him, but I did meet someone who has worked with him -- this guy here...

    (Hint: it's the guitarist.)

    Thanks Aragorn,

    Pete Cosey is my favourite Miles Davis guitarist, and Sco, of course... I look forward to listening to this track when I get time.

    Here's a track I recorded this afternoon, on a Sony Dictaphone:

    Collateral Accounts Blues/God Save The Queen.

    I welcome any feedback on recording techniques or mic placement, as I am still figuring out my set up. I think I had the mic too close and overdrove the mic. I still like the take, however.

    I don't know how to embed soundcloud links here. If a mod can do it and teach me how, I'd be grateful.

    Track:

    Sounds like you were using a bottleneck. Did you use an open tuning for that? Also, what kind of guitar did you use?

    I'm still listening to it right now. The recording in itself sounds okay to me, though. You can never go wrong with close-miking, and you can always add a bit of an ambient effect by adding reverb.

    Just put [sc] tags around the URL, rather than [URL] tags.

    Yeah, I saw your post and decided to fix it.

    I just tuned the A string down to G. Plus my treble e string broke. I haven't fixed it because 5 strings are easier. See Keith Richards. I used a standard Jim Dunlop Plexiglass bottleneck. That was me strangling an Epiphone SG.

    Close micing gives it an in your face intimacy that I really like. The mic was about a centimeter away from the amp grille. Even when I moved it 1-2 inches back, the sound got worse. On the downside, I noticed was when I attack the guitar hard, there's a kind of thud/clunk sound. I don't know if that's because the levels are wrong, or because I am monitoring on really old cybercafe headphones. I don't have the net in my house in case I get addicted.

    I will remember those embed tricks, Cheers.

    Listening to it and staring at the Golem pic was quite a powerful experience for me:

    Is there any way to fully embed the SC link here so people get the pic, like on the site?

    Well, I figured that it had humbuckers, but I couldn't tell what guitar it was.

    The clunk sound is probably due to the close miking and the sensitivity of your speakers.

    Well, I just had to fix that website link in your original post as well...

    Hmm... I don't think so. The SoundCloud support is something we've only added to vBulletin yesterday, and my own browser is too old to support all of its functionality, so I can't really tell.

    You can hear it has humbuckers? Wow.

    So how to benefit from close micing without the clunk? I guess I'll have to mess around with placement and angles.

    Thanks for the html fixes.

    Oh yeah, that's something I can easily tell. Humbuckers sound darker than single-coils -- except for the Gibson P-90, which is a very dark sounding single-coil -- and the attack is creamier, and the output is generally higher too.

    I'm not an expert on that, though. I used to record my own guitars by way of a line-out on the amplifier itself. I suppose you could use a limiter or a compressor, but that would color the sound somewhat.

    No problem -- we do that sort of thing all the time.
