Nicely swinging and nicely toned! It sounds like some good JJ Cale, I really enjoyed!  :D
You would deserve to be a bit less buried in the mix, though  ;)
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Nicolas!

i'm using a zoom h1 with external mics...the mix is dang tough to get balanced. other times, i have used the internal mics, and i am too loud. tough row to hoe.

I'll agree with Nicolas. It is played with nice swing - and what you play is well integrated with the backing track. Very musical as a result.   :)

Getting the mix just right is always a headache on these multitrack recordings - though it's very much a personal preference. It sounds pretty good to me, but then I've been criticised in the past for not making my guitar improv parts prominent enough in the mix.

I like the tones of the guitar part - good match for the rest of "the band". Interested to know what external mic(s) you used.

VB, nice you should ask the mic question...i have a shure sm57 that i mic the amp with and an akg perception 100 i use on the stereo.  i have been more than a little dissatisfied with the shure; i got in a ev nd767a today. gonna do some comparison miking and tracking with it if i don't get off on some other task.

the way i have this set up is....the mics into a behringer small board (i think it has 4 inputs, two xlr, two unbalanced); output is to a zoom h1 recorder.  for whatever reason, i have not been able to make myself go record into the daw....i like doing my thing in the living room.

i have been messing with a pad drum machine, trying to learn 'drums' so to speak...maybe i'll get a drum track down when i can figure out where the right pads are....

thank y'all for the supportive comments!
