In this video I am playing a late 80's Ibanez Artist in the neck position with a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup (neck pick-up-series) with a Golden gate pick through a Custom Billm Modified Fender Blues Junior in a custom designed cherry wood cabinet with a Jensen Special Design C15N speaker.
The video was shot with an iPhone 6s Plus with the FiLMiC Pro app.
Lighting is a single Fancier Studio Fan 500A 3 LED Light Panel.
The guitar amp was recorded with a Heil PR-40 microphone and the voice audio was recorded with an audio-technica AT831b Cardoid Condenser Lavalier Microphone both going into an Apogee Duet into an iPad Air running GarageBand.
I used GarageBand to sync the video and audio together.
For audio mastering, I added a compressor, multipresser and limiter in GarageBand. There is no EQ or reverb added.
I'm using both an ATS Acoustic Bass Trap - 24 x 48 x 4 and a DIY acoustic baffle made from "8" pieces of 16 x 48 x 2 Ultra Touch Denim Insulation placed about 6 inches behind the amp. There are "2" ATS Acoustic Panels - 24 x 48 x 4 set up behind me as a backdrop and additional sound treatment. There is also a DIY acoustical ceiling cloud made with the 16 x 48 x 2 Ultra Touch Denim Insulation which covers approx half the ceiling of my small studio.
In my experience, it is essential to lay down a solid foundation of musical knowledge and familiarity on the fretboard. Once you've done that, playing fast will come naturally, since your ear and brain will know what to do. - Joe Satriani
