Thanks, I used my Jackson DXMG for this. That note is just a bad habit of mine:mad:.

I make alot more mistakes on the second solo, I dont know why I have so much trouble with that one:drunk:.

Thanks, Im using a Sonar 3 to record and im using my podxt usb for direct recording. I have no clue what the problem is. I used audacity once but with that my recording always lags behind the backing track. Sonar doesnt start doing that until about 1-2 mins. into the recording.

use 'cool edit pro', great software.
although, i'm not sure what is the problem, it's sounds great.
that podxt really shines with direct recording....
btw, i got mine 2 hours ago. :dance:

about the second solo....
once you get the beginning, the rest just comes naturally.
easier said than done. :p

Nice post, well played!
About your problem. I noticed a warning in guitar port yesterday that said that it may sound choppy if your hard drive is in PIO mode instead of DMA.
Maybe its the same for podxt? Checked that out?

This is a real good clip. Makes me want to listen to the whole song. This was the song that turned me into a Metallica fan back in the day. I wouldn't fret (pardon the pun) over the problems you have replicating parts of the solos; look at it as something to include in your daily practice routine and eventually it will become one of your strengths.

I use Sonar 3 for my work. If you click on

Options - Audio

A window pops up (you may already know about this)

Where is says "Mixing Latency" Mover the slider up a bit and/or try increasing the "Buffers in Playback Queue" to a higher value.

I used to have the same problem you have with yours. Another thing is to turn off all the effects when you're recording.

Hope that helped. Nice recording aswell Really good sound you've got there. Could have come straight off the metallica album. :icon_peac

I have resolved my Sonar problem so as soon as I get the second solo down I will post the whole thing.:icon_thum

I got the tone off of Customtone.com, It wont let me upload the .l6t file so go there and search for "South of Heaven". I used a tone named that for the recording but just dummed down the delay a bit.
