You're recording an electric guitar solo, a Chuck Berry style rocker with doublestops and bent notes. It's striking how thin the strings are: very easy to bend. The amp is in your bedroom, you're surprised to find the mic is your old 414 when nowadays you have so many options. Somebody interferes: a family with small boys are curious. Your amp is on the sidewalk beneath trees: the boys lean on the mic stands talking loudly.
