I've been away from my laptop and fiddle for a couple of weeks now but have a wonderful new toy to play with an Ipod. It has 3.6GB storage and lots of features. It's the size of a credit card and very portable. You can put your favorite songs and tunes on it, photos, videos, movies ect. Now I can carry the tunes I want to learn anywhere I go and be able to share them with others. I highly reccomend one. Feel free to e-mail me and I wil try and answer any questions you might have.   Ky Fiddler

I was just wondering if you can record live with one of those Ipod things?

I would like to record live jams to listen to later.

An Ipod is basically a hard drive. What would have to be done is record what you want, put it on your computer and down load it to the Ipod. Theres still alot I have to learn about this thing yet.

Nope, you can get microphone attachments for iPods.  I've been using mine to record jams for a year and a half now.  I have the Belkin mic for the 80G classic video iPod.  It records pretty well.  Only downside is that this version has a hard disk and the mic picks up a little of the disk's stepper motor noise (sounds like faint background clicks in the recording sometimes).  Not a problem for jam recordings if you're just trying to learn the tunes (what I'm using it for), but would be a problem if you were trying to get clean recordings of yourself to post on FHO or whatever.

Sorry, my comment got shuffled to the wrong spot for some reason. I was meaning to agree with everything ScottK said.

Yes, My Ipod is a nano which has 4GB storage for tunes, video and podcasts ect. You can get bigger and better if you want to do more with it like recording on the spot. I like to down load podcasts to listen to at a later time. Fiddle hangout has podcasts that are good if you want to learn tunes. One I listen to was a teach in on Good Bye Girls I'm Going to Boston Art Stamper style. I would reccomend a Ipod for all interested in listening and learning fiddle tunes.
