Tonight I spent some quality time with my other guitar, a Squire Stratocaster that was probably someone’s bar mitzvah present. It sounds like shit and that’s not neccesarily a bad thing. Sometimes shit is exactly the right sound. I used it to record an alternate version of Angelina using the “arena rock” effect on the guitar and “megaphone” on my vocal. It’s awfully rough and raw, maybe even grating, especially if you’re listening on the laptop speaker. Turn down the volume. Better yet wear headphones. It’s not very pretty but I kind of like the rockness of it. Obviously mixing is in order.
