Still experimenting with my Baggs M80 in various guitars....here I have put it in my 1993 Lowden LSE1 mahogany/sitka and open tuned to F and grabbed the Blue Diamond bottleneck for my solo version of Willie Dixon's "Red Rooster" direct to my A&H mixer. Vocal in my Neumann KM184....

Thanks BBG, George and Murph!

Apologies for the banging noises, bottleneck hitting the guitar by mistake - action of the Lowden is way too low for slide really.....and my hand stiffened a bit when I pressed Record.

But I like the sound - the condenser mic picked up the guitar as well and the Baggs pickup blended in very nicely. Unfortunately, this would probably cause feedback at a gig....but recording has the pickup giving it some bottom end to the guitar that just isn’t there if I just did the one mic. (and without the vocal mic, the pickup sounds....aha...magnetic. But I am enjoying playing a few of my guitars with previously no electrics......I suppose they were electronic virgins!)

Thanks Billroy!

BK style, eh?

I had a couple of versions - a very straight through version I have played since the year dot, a Howling wolf riff but maybe a bit of RJ crept in and led me astray after I did the ‘nice’ but probably boring version in a run through but when I hit record......mixed them all up and that is what came out!

Thanks Billroy!

Whole thing is one take, no overdubs, Billroy. While there are bangs and noises and mistakes and changes of direction to what I was originally doing before recording, but it gets a certain ‘feel’ with ‘one take this is what you get’ that you usually lose with multi-tracking. I mention because you were interested in multi takes and mixing it etc, which I am not against or anything....though I think it is easier to learn the song and do it like you would live....
