I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment How many sound interface inputs do I need to record drums?
You could save some money by just getting a mic mixer, setting some levels during a sound check, and recording all the drum mics into one input. Of course you can't then adjust in post, but that's the compromise. Remember plenty of great records were recorded on 4 tracks or fewer.

comment Can bass chord notes be different octaves after playing the root?
Does it sound good? If so, screw rules, unwritten or otherwise.

comment How to use delay with distortion/overdrive and/or a crunchy amp?
By double-picking You'd never get it to sound quite like a delay, fading away each echo. I'm not saying you should always leave silence for the delayed sound - just a space where it fits. Listen to 80s U2 for how he makes complex parts from simple fingering + delay.

comment What to call finger positions on fretless bass?
The stripes on violins are very much for beginners. They are coloured sticky tape, and it's soon removed for good.

comment Guitar recommendation for beginner with practice information
@yo' Yes. Although I know of at least one teacher (Jamie Andreas) who starts people off high up the fretboard, where less pressure is required to fret a note.
