Lesson about Recording for the Complete Novice, lesson two: Microphones

Ladies and gentlemen, please put those paws together and give a warm welcome to our special guest. We welcome back to the stage, Mr. Chris Carr from The Kilt Lifters.

Folks that know the situation also know that he’s kind enough to let us host a weekly event where we generally run amok and act the fool. The bourbon sipping gent is pretty relaxed and doesn’t even yell at us to get off his lawn! Sweet!

Anyhow, he’s a fine musician in his own right. He plays everything from the uke to the guitar and flouts (I’ve decided that’s the word, and I’m not going to use a dictionary. You knew what you were into when you clicked the link!) with the best of ’em! If you catch him on a good day, you can find him playing with himself or prancin’ about in a kilt!

He recently dropped a new album and has a few more for sale. Having heard the new album, I can say it’s a delightful listen that has only one drawback – it’s too short. Still, it’s well worth considering for your Celtic Music needs and you get to help support a member of the community.

At the very least, give his site a quick visit and browse around. You never know, ladies. If you offer ’em enough money, maybe he’ll show ya what’s under his kilt!

One more time, let’s make him feel welcome and put those hands together for Mr. Chris Carr!

Lesson about Recording for the Complete Novice, lesson one: What do I need?

Alright, ladies and gentlemen. I’d like to introduce a special guest. Let me bring him out here on the stage with me. I don’t think he needs much introduction but, if he does, it’s Chris from over at The Kilt Lifters!

Let’s give him a warm welcoming round of applause, folks. They’ve taken their time and written for us – in the first of the folks to screw up the courage and contribute!  There’s another, but she’s pretty busy and hasn’t had time yet. Patience, she’d tell you. Be patient. (Or you get no cookies.)

While you’re on his site, you can purchase the latest album here, or at CDBaby.com here.

He has no idea that I’m saying this – by the way. I’m plugging his album.

What I want you to do is head on over there and watch some of his videos. You can watch ’em run around in a kilt – and the ladies say it’s devilishly handsome. Sometimes, you can catch him in our weekly guitar thread and he’s in there playing with himself! Trust, me… When Chris plays with himself, it’s somehow family friendly. It’s impressive, actually.

So, go give him a visit and buy his album! Seriously! (Can you tell I’ve been on stage recently? I had to emcee part of the last one.)

He doesn’t tell you to shut up and play us a song. He’s nicer than I am. Without further ado:
