Hello everyone, I am here to thank you all. I was working on a cover of Bat Country Solo, to share with you my experience with the Focusrite (the best option for sure), the first solo I learned from A7X ten years ago (I didn't play it well, neither now, but I'm trying to do better), I forgot and then I learned again, to make this video. I'm not a great producer or a good guitarist, but I hope you like it and I will share my progress with the guitar and the Focusrite. Thanks again!

I leave the following link so you can see the video on Instagram.

    Nice! Came out great! Biggest feedback I would give is to watch your timing. On some of the more melodic bits, you were rushing the part and playing ahead of the beat. THE BEAT IS KING. You can CHOOSE to play in front of or behind it for effect or personal taste (Syn plays much of the lead on the white album behind the beat), but to do it by accident is twenty lashes with a metronome!

    Thank you so much @Ed Seith that's great feedback, I'll put in practice my timing, I know that a made many mistakes, actually, that was a short session on free time that I had the past afternoon Sunday. I like the idea to create a short video of the progress in general. In any case, I really appreciate the criticism and the details that I must work on, many times when we play we don't realize how many mistakes we make until we record ourselves. But you're right to play behind the beat by accident is a sin. I'll work my timing, and I promise to come up with better videos. Thanks again!

    In my humble opinion, you can't beat Focusrite for price, dependability, and quality. Presonus is also great and won't break the bank.
    I would figure out how many ins and outs you need and check out Focusrite. They have small (stereo units) as well as multi input boxes.
    I have a presonus audio box 2 track. Cost me a couple hundred. It improved my tone drastically just from plugging into itnover the ampnwith the USB.

    I did a lot of research trying to find the best way to record at home in my price range and I ended up going with a second hand focusrite scarlett 2i2. I got one with 2 inputs as I wanted to record vocals and guitar at the same time, if you only want to record guitar the solo 1 input version is even cheaper. I’ve had it for a few months now and use it a lot, it’s really good tbh the quality is perfect, no latency that i can hear. Even used ones come with ableton live 10 lite which I personally really like because it has lots of drum samples that you can loop to make beats for backing tracks. Even easier with a midi keyboard/drum pads.

    That is good @Saoirse Byrne. And good advice on drum samples, I'll check it out. I've also been studying about it, and I have a Scarlett 2i2, which I recently bought and the quality is amazing, for a home study, it's enough for now. we'll see what comes next. I agree with you that we have many things to study, this is another world. Thanks for sharing your experience.
