I’ve greatly simplified this without changing any of the chords. This is intended for guitarists and other musicians, so it’s easy to glance at the music and see what you need to see, without any clutter. I also re-align the word wraps, because the “poetic” pacing, the lyrics written in rhythm, are usually done incorrectly on the popular chord website “Ultimate Guitar,” making it much more difficult a task to play the song.

This is a Patty Griffin Song. It’s me singing into a Shure Beta 87A Mic with a little reverb and compression in Reaper … playing a Hagstrom HL550 into a Bugera 50-watt T50 amp head and a 2X12 Bugera cabinet, with an SM58 mic on the cabinet. Great amp. Give it a listen! Continue reading “Poor Man’s House – Mark Urso”

Maybe a Shure SM58. An SM48, which is extremely similar, can be had for fifty bucks. You’ll have a little money left over!
I’ll assume you’re not on stage making your recordings, and you have complete control over ambient sound, and you have good headphones. So you’re looking for, I’m assuming, a studio mic for vocals.
Cheap street is the SM58. It’s a standard mic, with a standard polar pattern, and is usually used on stage, but since we don’t know what your singer sounds like, what your singer prefers, or if you’re looking for a particular sound, why not have a standard-performing mic? It won’t cost $500 – maybe $100.
It’s far more important how your room sounds, how your singer Continue reading “If I can only afford one microphone under $500 to record vocals with what should I get?”

The first song, “Dust,” from Fleetwood Mac, has always been a favorite of mine (1972, “Bare Trees”). Danny Kirwin (who played guitar for Fleetwood Mac along with Bob Welch, before Lindsay Buckingham, who joined in 1975 and co-wrote on 1977’s “Rumors”) wrote this music to an old poem about death.
I’ll transition into “Stardust,” Continue reading ““Dust” Into “Stardust””
Think Jimi Hendrix is a great guitarist? Clapton? Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King?
