Episode 12 - Recording Acoustic Guitar 101

This is episode 12 of The Metal Shop Podcast! In this episode, I explore various ways of recording acoustic guitar.


The trivia question for this episode asked; "How did Guns And Roses get the fornicating sound effects on Rocket Queen?"

The correct answer is that it was a recording of Axl Rose and drummer Steven Adler's girlfriend doing it in a vocal booth. Congrats to Scott Walton for having the right answer. Scott wins a copy of my solo album "Orphan".


This week's question is about the recording of Nirvana's "Bleach" album. How many tracks were available in the studio that they recorded the album in during the 1992 recording sessions?

[All music in this episode was original music that I, Brandon S. Hire, had a hand in writing and recording. The music bed at the beginning and end of the show was created specifically for this podcast, while the music bed at the beginning and end of the Recording Acoustic Guitars 101 segment is a song called Karen, and was recorded by me at OU's multi-track lab in 2003-2004!]
