In this guitar etude, I am playing a late 80's Ibanez Artist with a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup (neck pick-up-series) through a Custom Billm Modified Fender Blues Junior in a custom designed cherry wood cabinet with a Jensen Special Design C15N speaker. I am using a red amethyst guitar pick., D'Addario NYXL Nickel Wound Strings 09-42 and a Horizon right angle cable.
The audio was recorded with an iPhone 6s Plus using the Voice Memos app with a RØDE iXY Stereo Microphone. 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 12 inches behind the amp.
For audio mastering, I've added a compressor and limiter in GarageBand. There is no EQ or reverb added.
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
