Playing Guitar - Need Some Advice on Playing, Recording, and Getting Back into the Game
I played guitar for twelve straight years of my life, but after college I played less and less as time and life kind of got in the way. Now at 31, as I look for both a creative outlet and to hold onto my wayward youth, I want to get back into the game, but I need some help.
- I have an old Fender tube amp I haven't used in years, but I loved that thing. What is the likelihood that it still works and, assuming worst case scenario, would it be worth repairing?
- If it's not worth repairing, can a decent amplifier be had for ~$200?
- I'm looking to do some recording onto my PC and would like to do so via microphone. I've seen a lot of recommendations for the Shure SM57
. Are there any others in this price range I should be aware of?
- Best recording software for someone just getting started? GarageBand? Reaper? Something else? I've done a little research, but sometimes it's hard to know where to get started.
