Pearl,

Didn't we warn you about this recording thing being addictive.

Sounds good!

the chorus isn't really chorus. it's an acoustic-electric guitar recorded to Garageband through their effect called "Dreamy Shimmer."

Sounds really nice, Pearl. 8)
FYI, a preset like "Dreamy Shimmer' is completely editable in Garageband.
If you want less of a given effect it's easy to do:
Doubleclick on its name under 'Tracks' and you'll get a 'Track Info' window.
If you click on the 'Details' arrow, you get an editable list of all the effects that went into the modeling of the sound. In this case: chorus, echo and reverb.
Dial effects up or down. You can even save the effects out as a new preset you'll have for later use...
It doesn't have any effect on your original recording, so go crazy.
PM me if this isn't clear enough and I'll send you some screenshots.
:)

That's a lovely guitar tone - what guitar were you using, what amp, what settings, etc?

:D :D :D

My guitar is a Martin 000C-16GTE bought at Mandolin Brothers about a year ago. It's recorded directly to the computer (no amp), but through an M-Audio Firewire Solo as an interface. I have a new iMac. I recorded to GarageBand through a present called Dreamy Shimmer.
