I used an old ladder braced Gibson made kalamazoo with a seymour duncan 'Woody' pick up. I plugged into a chinese made fender blues junior knock off, and set the reverb to 5. Next I placed my zoom R8 at the foot of the amp, opened two channels and started the recording. I sang as I played.
Result: The guitar sounded good, nice and clear. My vocal, was way way back in mix. So...I opened another channel, replayed original and overdubbed a redo of the vocal over top first one.
What I need is to get two mics...one for vocal, one for guitar.
Another thing could do is chart the music into exact measure and do music only, then vocal.
Ha! I actually kinda' like the over-dubbed vox effect
But, yes... you do need at least a vocal mic! I have the ZOOM R24 version of your Tascam which I basically use as a pre-mixer/interface for my computer. The built in stereo mics alone are great for recording acoustic guitar, but I like the effect you're getting with your amp! Those mics do OK for "roomy background" vox, but you do need a mic to punch out your lead vox.
This is a OneDrive link, Copy and paste to your browser and download...
8 measure intro 16 measures each for verses 1-3 8 measure break (like intro) 20 measures and lift for verse 4 16 measures for verse 5 Outro Listen for fills and changes
Now, you can play and sing this like you normally do...
You can listen with headphones and sing into your Tascam, then send me your vox and I'll re-mix wink
It greatly interested me: I dug into all of that and expanded me brain:
-downloaded the file -dragged it into Audacity -used my R8 as interface -researched how to overdub in Audacity -played around with OneDrive and deleted all my files...whoops! (all in recycle bin so restored) -fun
Next, I'll check out the measures and lay an instrumental track-further brain expansion lol
I'll look into getting an SM8.
