Just gotta keep the amp volume and line-in level rather low so as not to get a lot of clipping. For the recording I honestly just used Audacity software, which is free online (though it's a bitch to find the one I have that won't give you an assload of latency problems). Aside from that, I just loaded up the demo he sent me and recorded over it, layering a few tracks where necessary. Then exported the raw solo tracks and emailed them to him.
Yeah, it worked out pretty well. I manually lined up your solo tracks to the song, but I think they sound mostly in phase with the rest of the song. In a perfect world I would've made it out to Pennsylvania to track your solo directly into Pro Tools, but either way, it's awesome you contributed. I think the song really deserved an epic solo, and you delivered!
