When it comes to recording guitars and bass in your song, make sure you have a plan and a purpose for each instrument.

As we’re making our way through this series and as I’m recording my song, I already have a tempo setup and some virtual drums in the session. Now it’s time for me to capture a better acoustic guitar performance (to replace my scratch version), the bass guitar part, and a couple of overdriven electric riffs.

As you’ll see, less is more when it comes to guitar. Follow along as I record and release a new song in 8 weeks!
