Blues In A

Listen Here 

Basic blues has always fascinated me and captivated my emotions.  You see... the blues gets me right here, right in the gut.  So, I like to play it with feeling, if not for the sheer joy, then for the relief! 

I can't remember where I downloaded this blues jam track, but I sure love jamming to it! 

Here's how I do it:  I download the original jamtrack from the internet source.  Next, I convert it into a 16 bit ".wav" or wave file.  Then I import the wave file into Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro version 2.0.  After that, I have full studio capabilities.  After that, I determine what I'll do kinda on the fly.  My approach to music and guitar playing style is improvisational, to say the least.

On this particular song, I played a bass track and two guitar tracks.  I played my Washburn T24 prototype bass through my Behringer BXT3000 head and 1x15" and 2x10" cabs.  I use an Audio Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone about 5" away from the left 10" speaker.  The speaker is just about 30" from the floor, stacked on the matching 15" cabinet.

I played my Raven West Guitars PRS copy dual humbucker electric guitar for both of the lead guitar tracks.  One track (the second pass) was more distorted than the first track to give it a bit more crunch.  The first was slightly overdriven to give a tube tone.

When I mixed the song down so I could turn it into an mp3, I swapped between the 2 lead guitar tracks using a "volume envelope filter" on each of the tracks.  If you listen closely, you can hear the fade out (and in) for each track, as they sorta pass-by each other, you can tell...  It was a fun project,, and a learning experience, too!  As I work on songs like this, I can experiment with discovering studio techniques that work, and become familiar with the studio recording software in the process!

I hope you start working with jam tracks, and I hope you ENJOY listening to my effort, too!

This is a lead guitar part that I laid down alongside a Jamtracks Jam.  

You can easily search the internet for ... and find ... many arrangements in midi and recorded formats to assist you in your jamming skills!  That's all I did here.

All I did was to import the Jamtrack into Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 2.0 ... Then, I recorded a few passes of lead guitar.  Then I used the best parts of two of the tracks.  Mixed them with a smidge of compression and overall mastering on the end result.  I like to listen to the results!

Upon The Cross
M. Scott Worthington

When I hear
When I hear Your Name
When I feel
When I feel Your pain
When You're near
When I see the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Then I hear
Then I hear Your voice
As You're calling out my name
And I wonder
And I turn around
I am turing back to You

I fall down
When I hear Your Name
I break down
When I feel Your pain
I look up
And I see the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Then I hear
Then I hear Your voice
As You're calling out my name
And I wonder
And I turn around
I am turing back to You

There You are
Jesus
There You are
Jesus
There You are
Jesus
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Now I see
Jesus
Now I see
Jesus
Now I see You
Jesus
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
Of my sin upon the cross
