    Guitar Recordings & Videos

    On this page you'll find recordings of various guitar tunes, songs, etc.

    Click here to go to the videos page.






    Gear

    My recording studio is PC based. The components were specially chosen to make as silent a system as I could.

    The equipment is as follows:

    PC

    AV gear

    I basically went for gear that will do me for many years to come without needing much in the way of upgrades. For those looking for help in setting up a digital audio workstation, I'd recommend the forums at www.homerecording.com and www.silentpcreview.com
