It’s 6AM

… and I’ve been woken up by a neighbor who somehow thinks that it’s a good time to have a house party.  I’ve been woken up with just a few hours of sleep (I went to bed about 4 hours ago) so needless to say, I’m not in the best mood.

As a result, I’m taking the opportunity to make some noise.

A few days ago I bought some adapters so that I can rig up my laptop to be a guitar recorder… the mp3 herein attached is the result.  It’s my acoustic, hooked via it’s pickups to a distortion pedal (just to amp it a bit) which is hooked to my laptop’s line in. 

It yields a much better sound recording than what I could accomplish with a microphone, because it’s a lot cleaner this way.

The attached file is just a test, but I’m thinking now that I bought all the cables and wires necessary that I’ll use my Xanga to record my progress on guitar.

So anyway, here’s day 1 I suppose!

Compare what I did back in September:

To what I just recorded right now:

Anyway, now that I’ve got that out of my system and feel a bit better,
I think I’ll be able to go back to

Incidentally, does anyone
know a good freeware sound recording device that, if possible, knows
how to record in MP3 format?
