I'm a bassist so go easy on my guitar recordings. All played with no pick and in a week I'll clean up some versions that need fixing. No my guitar does not need tuning -- that's the Squier from Fender for you. Bass recordings should be up in a day or so. Finally back from disappearing from here and the world for that matter.
I use Lexicon Omega Recording Studio to record. The bad side is I can't hear myself play until I convert it to a wav file, but other than constant volume changes and not being able to figure out how to use distortion on this, it's pretty good. All recordings are played one time through without any editing -- I'll clean it up when I figure out how to edit the parts I make mistakes.
