Hello UG. I spent the last year recording a collection of songs that I can only describe as Progressive Emo music. As this is UG, it's obviously a guitar-heavy record. If you've ever wanted to hear a...

Even if the "majority" of UGers record direct, that doesn't mean that we all should. If you have a decent sounding amp then sticking a mic on it will almost always sound better. It'll be more "real"...

Vocals aren't bad (which is rare here), but I have to agree that the harmony felt a little odd. Overall, cool song. Actually much better than most of the stuff we see around here
