I ask these questions about a video as the one known video of BBTS on YouTube shows you playing with a folk (thumb over the top) and a natural foundational clasp of an F shape chord, My first guitar teacher made me Barre from day one, now I'm not claiming one is better than the other but the nuances of sliding and hammer-pull offs into the next box of fret notes is different. So that was the nature of my request just to help work out the slide-rocks-bends of my left hand over the frets, some styles are more efficient than others, some have to be learnt and some have to be forgotten. Just to make you laugh.... I was in a pub rock trio 1979, I was the bassist, I have just started earning and got an effects chain set up for our last gig.... Bass->Big Muff->Bass booster->Electric mistress->HH 100w head->1x15 cab... a small pub in Stalybridge (the Commercial )... we planned a big exit....so our last song was a half decent cover of "Maid in Heaven", nice edge of breakup guitar and my bass super thick with the bass booster, we all turned up, I could not wait for the outro... it came... ON went the Muff PI to add a lot of HF distortion, The Bass booster was already on, ON went the flanger on its deepest setting..... The sound of the D chord I fretted was so big, we gave the audience veritgo and were bouncing beer glasses across tables, the size of the room, the reflective surfaces, the standing waves all seemed to conspire... we got to play it one last time... such fun and the start of my journey into the vibrational energies and components of sound.

Logic Pro X on Mac OS is the DAW that de-skills producers.... (fact) On Window PC, Studio ONE from Pre-Sonus can be used simply (free) (song writing templates) to full (studio quality) production mastering as your skills develop. My DAW is the far end of being a gear whore as Devin Townsend would say, but I did start off with "Audacity" and you can get worthy results... but the lower end of the free DAW software may have latency between what you monitor and what you play, depending upon PC specification. Use You Tube to look at the tutorials for various DAW's ... My Journey: It started with "Audacity" which was a pre DAW audio editor but what is important for your journey is to have the most flexibility mechanisms for recording your Audio and Mastering. Having good visibility on the macro and micro levels for Pre & Post recording. My DAW has a mixer which allows me to hardware condition any sound input for recording and it doubles as a DAW control surface for post production when adding automation for tracks. I use an extra wide monitor to show the tracks for Pre/Post work and Sate Raven 20 point touch screen for controlling DAW elements such as Editing Tracks / Controlling Plugins. Not a Keyboard or mouse in sight (no short-cuts, just buttons), every visible aspect is zoomed to a level I can work with Overview/Detail. I do make full use Tech, my Gittler Guitar has Roland 13pin Hexaphonics as well as summed Analogue outputs, this allows me to record 4 tracks from one hit: Roland GR-55 Midi Guitar (Midi) + DI dry analog + Roland GR-55 synths/COSM modelled Guitars + AXE FX III wet guitar (amp/effects) Sounds. I use the "out of the box" amps/cabs/effects as everything is tweakable at the software level, no need to annoy the neighbours with loudness. ( the last thing you need is a doorbell appearing in a recorded track) And yes for those who are sceptical about a titanium guitar with no "wood" its does receive Channel 4. LOL
