I hear that people sometimes record music in their own basements, and then put it on the internet. What type of recording gear does one have to get to do this?
I have been looking at this site.
I also wonder what kinds of guitars people recommend for a first guitar? I see they have entry level Ibanez for ~$250, then up to Les Paul Standard for ~$450, and then up to the custom guitars for over $500. Is it worth the time trading up for new guitars after awhile, or should one just get a fairly nice one in the first place?
