I recorded these originals in late 2004 for an online guitar competition site. (My user name for that site was FatStrat5150). I used a Fender Strat, Digitech Effects Processor(with built-in pre-programmed drum beats) and Cool Edit Pro2(a recording, editing and mixing program). My rig is set up like this: Out from guitar into effects processor, out of the processor directly into my computer's soundcard. I recorded and looped the drum beat, recorded and mixed the rhythm guitar(s), then recorded and mixed the lead guitar(s). These songs are in order of when they were recorded.

El Drunkos Pinchos
Creation and Destruction
Waiting for Summer
This was the first tune that I recorded my guitar over a backing track(just the drums and bass line). It's my cover of Hendrix's Red House.This was also recorded in late 2004. Same rig as above.
Red House Rip-Off
The song below was recorded in 2006 with a Peavey Predator Plus(with a Floyd Rose). I used Sonar Drum Tools to make the drum beat, Digitech Effects Processor and Cool Edit Pro2 to record and mix it.
Original # 7
The song below was recorded in January of 2010. I used a backing track of a song I'd never heard and recorded and mixed a bunch of guitar tracks over it. The backing track is the drums, bass line, and a really cool keyboard line, I don't know if this really qualifies as an original, because I used somebody else's backing track, but, all the guitars on this track are original.
Chitlin Fried Ham Hock Blues
The songs below are covers that I recorded in 2009. I found a website that has thousands of free backing tracks. The backing tracks are just the drums and bass line. All guitars on these tracks are me. I put the backing track into the Cool Edit Pro2's multi-track mixer and recorded and mixed in a bunch of my guitar. I used a Peavey Predator Plus, Digitech Effects Processor and Cool Edit Pro2 to record and mix them. The backing tracks are at: http://guitarbackingtrack.com/
