I have played acoustic guitar by myself for years, but never been in a band or recorded anything, so I have very limited knowledge of how to do that.
My guitar is not wired for sound, so I understand I need a microphone, some way of connecting to my computer (a MacBook Pro; I was thinking of getting this
for the purpose) and some software for editing.
My aim is to record a backing track of chords and then some riffs/solos over that, with possibly some vocals. I may add an electric guitar at some future point.
How do people usually set this up - do they record the solos and the chords on separate tracks? And if so, do you listen to the chords through headphones and play the solo parts to the microphone? That means then you can't hear the guitar parts you are playing properly though, as you're wearing headphones, so I guess there is some key factor here I'm missing.
Oddly I haven't been able to find a good guide to how to do this online. So if you have general advice on how to set it up and specific recommendations for hardware and software, that would be splendid.
