    ok at home i have my bass...my electric...and alot of things to hit..i also have a tape recorder that is used to recored meetings and stuff like that. Last night i decided ill record myself playing electric, bass, and playing my home made drum kit. i taped myself play a bass line, then recorded myself playing the guitar line whilst the bass line was being played on my steroe in the background..now i want to try and to it again with the "home made percussion". i just thought i might tell everyone and see if anyone else has tried anyother was of primative recording:D

    I guess you invented something new, seeing as nobody uses the same approach... :D

    Consider getting yourself a used 4-track tape recorder for Christmas. With one of them, it would be a LOT easier to make the overdubs. They are pretty cheap to come by, e.g. The Tascam Porta 02 lists for USD 225, and shouldn't exactly cost you a whole lot used if you can find one of them, or anything similar from another manufacturer.

    Just a little tip, feel free to ignore it. :)

    I used to do that!! It sounded like complete sh*t but by God it was fun! Our resident shellfish is right though, you'll eventually feel the yearning for some high fidelity. Four tracks are cheap, then the PC route is a good inexpensive bet. Good luck, any chance of an mp3 of this home made kit?
