Welcome from another newbie (I'm not longer the new kid on the block!!) - whilst your diagnosis sucks, spare a thought for those people who go to work one day and never come back, who didn't have such luck ... 3 years is a long time to make some good memories, so make the most of it while you can, because some of us won't know when our time will be up; I've started recording videos for my kids because having them at such a late age, I'm not sure I'll be around to see grandkids ... wishing you all the best ...

My mixer is super basic. I have none of that. But thank you very much for the ideas!

What make/model is it??

It's a pretty simple mixer.  Only has one out, not one out per Channel.

If you have FX send/receive on your mixer, you can set one channel (vocal) to "send" on FX1, and the other channel (guitar) to "send" on FX2, then use that as your stereo mix into the computer (or whatever) as left and right tracks, which gives you a rudimentary 2 channel mix .... you'll probably still get some crosstalk, but from your previous posts it sounds like that won't be too much of an issue for you.

HTH!

Songs from a particular year? ie Pick 2 songs from 1957 ... Google will give you a list of songs from any particular year ...

I did like your Jim Croce rendition (same chords I use) and the second time through I played along.  I fingerpicked and it sounded like a good duet, right up to the part where you used an A where I transition through C#, F#m, A..... I think my timing slipped (stumbled).  Thinking I might use your rendition as a backing track and mix in mine (as a duet) and see what happens..... if you've no objection.  I'll send you a copy of the finished recording for your approval. It's been awhile since I have done any recording, so patience please.

No objection whatsoever - will be happy to hear it!!

Thanks again to all who made me feel welcome - currently using a Maton EBG808CL performer - although mine is about 10 years older than the one on the page ...

Not many UK suggestions ........... anymore before I close this down?  smile

Do we need to do them all? Can I suggest others? How about "Lalena" by Deep Purple ...

On that note, just went and watched your cover of "I had to say I love you" .... very nice ..... you covered it well, timing great, and you had a lovely soft voice with that particular song which suited it.  Well done smile

Thanks, my voice isn't great, but trying to get it better - on that note, was I supposed to do "Sundown" as well?

Cheers

Hi Richard, nice to meet you. I am a bit up to the neck in it at present but I will look at your music later. (I might even listen too smile).

See, that's the problem on the other side of the world - instead of being up to your neck, you'd only be up to your ankles big_smile

Your earlier comment has intrigued me; does standing on your head all the time mean that you have to do a handstand when you wish to use the loo? lol

No, because the water goes the other way ... tongue

I just listen to your track Richard. Nice guitar and the lady has a good voice. I just play piano and guitar  by feel but recently I have stoped playing due to a medical condition.

Hope you feel better soon, these were my vocals from the same album http://neophytte.mine.nu/audio/mp3/10-Beauty_Queen.mp3

Enjoy!

Depends on your guitar and amp set up; if you have an FX loop, then I'd put it behind the guitar before it goes the pre-amp (cleans up noise from guitar), if you're running your guitar straight into the pedals, then into the pre-amp, my experiments found the best place was (for different guitars) either directly before the overdrive, gain type pedals, or at the end of the chain before the amp input.

There is no "one size fits all" answer here, it's really a case of experimenting until it sounds right to you ...

Hope it helps ...

Welcome Richard to the land of Chordie. As a person who  has always been really curious about music and slightly confused by the world, I find this is an excellent place to check out and share ideas.

Thanks - all it takes is curiosity to create, and take it further than where you found it ...

Gidday Richard
glad to meet you,i`m a poor singer too.but i`m also guitarist/writer.the jury is out
on these.I have tried to bribe them ,but to no avail.
Welcome to chordie,don`t be a stranger.
there are a lot of intelligent people on here,but they all come from Aust/NZ

Thanks - it's because we stand on our heads and all the blood flows to our brains ... BTW, after listening to your music, you'll probably like my old acoustic stuff better than the modern "in my phone" songs; try this one: http://neophytte1.mine.nu:81/audio/mp3/ … Eulogy.mp3 (with a different singer to me)

Voting this one up, and "Crazy" by Willie Nelson (I think he did it? - or "All of me", if he didn't wink )

Welcome to Chordie.  Most everyone here is glad that I don't use video.  Some have actually seen me. They were barely able to contain their desire to run away terrified. It would have been nice to hear your offerings.  Just so you know, you're allowed to submit to old months.  I'm still working on Jack & Diane from April, and now I'm going to have to carry Pancho and Lefty into another month because I just haven't had time to work on it.  All that is perfectly fine. Encouraged even. 

Join in, have fun, keep rocking.

Thanks - it's good to know old months are still open; I've been meaning to do some videos for a while, cause I realized all the while I was keeping the static stuff from the paper, but not the visual stuff. I'm still stuffing around with video, so I hope to have something soon(ish) ...

Cheers
