MOTU Track 16 with DPA 4099G and RMC Pickups

July 24, 2012

Ive been recently streamling my live set up. Im using the Fishman SA 220 amp, with my DeVoe Blanca that has the RMC Pickups with a Ploly Drive II preamp (off board not on the guitar) I was using the Fishman Aura Spectrum DI but this weekend I tried using just the Poly-Drive and the DPA 4099g mic and really liked the sound. I will be using the MOTU Track 16 as my mixer with the Waves API plug ins and run that to the Fishman SA 220. The RMC Ploly Drive will conect to a Roland GI-20 gutiar midi interface that will Triger Spectrasonics Omnispher running on a Mac Book Pro using Apple’s Main Stage.

Silk Wrap Nails

July 8, 2012

I’ve started to use silk wrap (3 layers) on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger on my right hand when I know I’m going to be playing allot of flamenco style technique on the guitar. I use 3 layers of silk wrap on 30-50% of the nail. Between each layer of silk wrap I put on a thin coat of crazy glue. The below first pic is before they are trimmed and filed. The second pic is three layers and trimmed and shaped.
