    For various reasons, I hadn't been playing much and I hadn't recorded anything at all for over 3 years. I was getting pretty down about it, and last summer I got myself a new laptop to start putting together a new recording setup in the recently-uncluttered Guitar Room.
    I got a new Focusrite interface, upgraded to EZ-drummer 2, and set about the task of getting the bloatware off of the new HP laptop so all the computer's resources wouldn't be taken up.
    Anyway, after re-mixing a few old songs for practice, I finally was ready to see what a new recording would sound like on this rig. So here it is - a minute and a half long song by Guided By Voices. As usual, I do everything on it.

    The Pipe Dreams of Instant Prince Whippet

    OK, it's not TOTALLY uncluttered... Working on it.
    Oh, I used the SG, the Guild S-200 T-Bird, 2004 Strat, and my Fender Mustang Bass.

    Sounds great! Really enjoyed your vocal, and the mix was cool, also.

    I was going to say... Before I read this sentence, I was like, "THAT'S uncluttered? What was it like before!?!?!?" But no judgement! The song sounds good! Keep those juices flowing!

    Before that, getting something from the far side of the room was a bit like doing Parkour!

    I can't get past the refresh thing that determines you are not a robot. I hate those things.
