Forgot to respond to your question Downtown Vinnie. See a few comments down for some of the details on how I do it. My approach is pretty hack-y but it does the job. In short, I run audio through GarageBand and video through PhotoBooth on a MacBook laptop. But any audio and video recording software will do. From there I throw it all together in iMovie, where I can do some screen-in-screen trickery. I think I posted a link to a tutorial I followed on YouTube as well. So check that out too if it’s helpful.

AGP no kidding. My mind is three projects ahead with barely enough time to complete my current build! And yeah I’ve been playing for some time. :) it’s been a passion of mine for a few decades now.

"WARNING", building CBG's can become addictive :-D, 3 great looking and sounding gits, and a very enjoyable video, and I think it's more than obvious that you have! played before, :-)

Comment by Chris Wharton on November 6, 2019 at 3:47pm

Thanks Dave! And yes you’re spot on. The Nighthawk guitar was my very first build. Was looking for a super cheap design to experiment with. Once I did that one, I was hooked!
