Recording update / info

I'm the worst musician when it comes to tracking guitars. I have a horrible case of red light fear. It frustrates the hell out of me. I don't like to punch in at all and so I don't. All the takes are all the way through, even though there are some sections where I can break. It makes it extremely difficult when you are engineering at the same time. Anyway, boo-hoo. I'll get over it.

Gear.

I'm using the Axe-Fx for guitars and bass. Finally got a tone dialed in. Pretty crunchy and thick. Guitar is an ESP EC-1000 with EMG's, 81 and 60. Still tuning to E standard. My bass is an Ibanez SR505 with Bartolini pickups. The drums were programmed with the Voyetra Record Producer MIDI edition. They will be replaced with Steven Slate samples.

Damn, this sounds like me. Before doing a take, I'll practice through the song a couple times to get warmed up, and be like, oh hell yeah, I'm totally ready, let's do this. Go to hit record and fuck up on the first riff - haha...
