Post your covers!

Sounds about the same time frame it took me to get Arlo Guthries City of New Orleans down for a solo performance on Acoustic Guitar. My problem is that I keep adding additional flourishes into the mix and this is not necessarily a good thing. :slightly_smiling_face:

Good Lord, I love your floating thumb technique. I am trying to master that now. You make it look effortless. Your fingers were just dancing over the strings.

The only fault I can find with it is you did not do the pouty look with your lips. Great job!!!

Thanks @EddieJones @Griff @TNKA36 @Mac @terb for your comments and the encouragement!

LOL, I have been trying to compensate this with a little easter egg at outro, but
the good thing is, you don’t hear me growling ‘f*ck’ at the flaws :grin:.

Playing without anchoring the thumb feels natural to me, but I felt bad about it in the beginning cuz it’s against the rules.

Super common problem on any audio interface for some instruments. Some also don’t take line levels as well as they should on the XLR inputs; check the specs to see if the XLR input can take a Line In or just a Mic In. ISTR some of the Focusrites could only take a Mic level input on the XLR input - could be a different one though.

Well done on starting to record! Once you start getting your synths and other instruments in the mix, that’s when the fun really begins :slight_smile:

Nice, I love the klang you get.

FYI - partials get posted here…

FWIW - I have a 2nd gen 2i2 and have no clipping issues.
There is a switch for line vs. inst input on mine at least, should be on 3rd gen too.
I have the XLR line out from my amp always tied to my 2i2.
That said, I can adjust my input signal with a hi/low switch and a dial that gets set so the amp never clips on a bass by bass basis. This helped me on a couple bases on that on the 2i2 were almost dialed in near zero to control the overdriving of the signal. You can always turn your volume knob on your bass down a hair as well

Not quite a solo, but it is the only instrument in the mix (other than the tambourine).
