To play guitar, you don't need to know how to read, either notation or tabs. It's helpful for learning pieces of music, especially at first when you...

I've ruled out overdriving - was watching the output on the mixer, on the interface and in SONAR, and wasn't redlining anywhere. We were getting the sound even by talking softly into the mic, and...

It's not that - the interface has two preamps built into it, and we still got the sound even when we plugged the mics directly into those. (Only reason we're bothering with the mixer is for drums, as...

I'd worry more about it being weird if the band gets hit by lightning and all members are old except the vocalist, since it's probably slightly more likely. Don't get ahead of yourself.

I am double tracking, generally panning one rhythm track left and one right, with lead usually going straight up the middle.
