I started playing guitar in October of 2007.  I found that recording my playing was a great way to learn.  This is just a temporary site to store some guitar tunes I record on my PC.

Shout at the Devil (Motley Crue)
This is my second try with Ableton Live 7.  I'm starting to really like it.  I like how I you can really tweak the settings.

Whole Lot of Rosie (AC/DC)
This is my first attempt at using Ableton Live 7 (I had been using Tracktion 3).  I'm starting to like it but still a lot to learn.  I also used my Fender Tele that I bought through an online classified ad.  It rawwwks!.

Paranoid (Iron Maiden)
I thought this might be a fun little tune to learn ... and it was!  The solo even came out pretty good.

The Trooper (Iron Maiden)
This was a fun track.  The riffs sound a lot harder than they actually are.  The solo actually came out half decent this time.  The bass part was fun to play.

Woman (Wolfmother)
The orginal rocks.  My version a little bit less.

For Whom the Bell Tolls (Metallica)
Good memories from this tune from when I was a kid growing up.  I always wanted to learn the song.  The problem is that I couldn't get the tone right and I got annoyed of recording it, so here it is ... half baked.

Runnin With the Devil (Van Halen)
I heard this tune on the radio so I figured I'd try to learn it.  It wasn't too too bad.

Sharp Dressed Man (ZZ Top)
Cool little riffs and a fun solo.  I've been meaning to learn the song for a while.

Please Don't Touch (Motorhead and Girlschool)
This was a fun little tune.  I was looking up Motorhead videos and stumbled upon it.

You Really Got Me (VanHalen)
I was due to try a bit of VanHalen so I picked one of my favorite tunes.  I like how Eddie throws in a some little licks between riffs.

Indians (Anthrax)
Pretty much an unfinished song.  I worked on it during the two last nights and feel like moving to another tune.  It gets crazy fast and heavy in some parts.  I didn't know I could palm mute fast!   I want to redo it again later with a better tone and add the solo.

Purple Haze (Jimi Hendrix)
This was an interesting experience.  Jimi uses some real funky chords in the rythm section.  One of my favorite effects is the Auto Wah stompbox.  I got too much of it for the song; I couldn't find out how to tone it down. It still came out pretty funky.  I lost interest about two thirds of the song, through the solo so I just improvised some crap and finished off the tune.  Next Jimi tune I want to learn is Foxy Lady.

Talk Dirty to Me (Poison)
I've always liked this song because of the riffs and the solo.  I figured I try to learn it.

Seven Nation Army (The White Stripes)
I wanted to do a simple track this time so I chose Seven Nation Army.

South of Heaven (Slayer)
This one took a little longer than usual.  The song has ALOT of transitions and changes in tempo.

Seek and Destroy (Metallica)
I learned a lot of neat little tricks in Tracktion 3 while playing with this one. Stuff like copying filters from one track to another so they are both edited the same. One thing's for sure, I still need to learn to keep in time with fast beats.

Dimension (Wolfmother)
Just a little with some riffs from Dimension.  I used my "project" guitar.  I installed some EMG active pickups last weekend and wanted to try it in a song.  I also used my $200 bass I bought right after Christmas.  I like the first part.  I'll have to finish the song later, because I had a hard with the drum part of the third riff section.

Among the Living (Anthrax)
I just got a few studio monitors.  I was getting tired of playing and mixing through headphones, which you're really not supposed to do.  This tune took more time to arrange because the drums in Anthrax are pretty crazy.  I had to figure out how to do rolling toms and transition to a super fast drum beat.  I probably put about 3 1/2 hours into this one.  The transitions are a bit sloppy and the guitar tone I used had way too much distortion, but I like the overall feel of the song.

Back in Black (AC/DC)
Just another tune.  Threw in a little solo in it which makes my ears bleed but hey' what can you do.  Should have practiced it more.

I Love Rock n Roll (John Jett and the Black Hearts)
What a friggin' train wreck.  I spent litterally 2 1/2 hours Friday night trying to get the song right.  The little lick is what kept killing me ... I'd get one bang on then
screw up the following riff.  Ugh.  I ended up spending about  an hour tonight start to finish on the song.  I recorded the lick on a seperate track and did a crappy bass line (including mistakes in the final edit).  Move on Jacko, move on.

Breaking the Law (Judas Priest)
I decided to add a bass track to a song.  It was a bit weird at first but I got it down pretty good.  I just used a clean amp on XTLive and used my bridge pick up.

Iron Man (Black Sabbath)
I had real fun with this one tonight.  I bought a microphone today and did the "I am Iron Man" part in the intro.  
I used a Distortion pedal, Flanger and added some Mechanization in Goldwave (audio editing software).
