So I had an Open Mic Wednesday night, it was a clusterfuck, and I'd rather spare my dignity and not write about it. My guitar playing was fine, but I forgot the words, and it took us forever to set up.
Recently I've been making backing tracks to some of the songs I cover that aren't on GuitarBT.
For the drum parts, I use FL Studio. Working on Clash City Rockers right now, and unfortunately there are alot of patterns to work in that are small fills used exactly once.
For bass parts, I plug my guitar into my PC using a USB-guitar cable, and then tone it down 12 semitones in Audacity.
