Here is a slow 12 bar blues track to jam to or record with. Have fun!

"Take 2" is my attempt at a "home made" version with an improvised "drum track" and some CBG

Lets try to keep the song project discussions on topic and discuss general recording discussions  in the recording tips and tutorials thread (or start a new one if the subject warrants it)

loving the wah effect - great stuff James

well thank you very much!!!

silent Jim. i used cheap Mic already hooked to computer any how, thats all you need

not sure if you were asking me or James?...I was listening to the track on headphones while I jammed along and recorded my CBG

getting started with recording stuff is hard, but worth all that work when it finally works...there's LOADS of stuff on the net, if you Google "home recording" or something...I'm still floundering around trying different things!! Wasted most of yesterday trying to record a song  in adifferent way...and decided after all that that it was rubbish!!

Jim i did the same thing she did, listened to backing track with head phones, wile recording through Mic on computer. i used audacity

12 bar, 9th fret, a440, ........?????what is this stuff?

So what key is this in? I think if we are going colab with one, we would need to know the key AND would be good to have some common reference note (A440?) to tune to and make sure we are hearing the recording right.

It's in G Wes...don't understand the A440 bit sorry???

ha, see if we all pool together what we know, collectively we maybe know EVERYTHING!!

Heh. No probs. Yea most tuning or tuners use A440 as the tuning standard so if someone says "Give me an A", prolly means they want the A on the keyboard to tune to. Or 'middle C' I suppose. Either way...

So interestingly enough, there was someone on the Net that took Robert Johnson - The Complete Recordings and reworked them to more of a standard tuning (not the notes his guitar was tuned to), that is the reference tuning (A?) and thus making the recordings 'equally' tuned (tempered). In doing so, the recordings sound slightly different in tone and tempo.

-WY

Say give me a B flat. Everyone in the band will look at you cross eyed. Except maybe the keyboard player who laugh at you. And give you a B flat.

A440 is the standard reference point set in about 1939 with by some international forum hoopla.

Part of what you are alluding to is the problem that many early recordings are by artists who had no access to a standard and just tuned by ear to where their instrument was "happy". This led to some "interesting" attempts to add orchestra tracks and such in an attempt to make the recordings more suitable for national radio at the time. An example is in some early Hank Williams stuff that has a band added that is all tuned to a standard and Hanks guitar and vocal sound quite flat. It takes a pretty remarkable song to still become a classic work of art despite that.
