Thank you for the kind words... glad you liked it! I'll leave this up for a day or two before posting which take is the amp.
I can't tell and honestly don't care whether I can or not. I like the tone of the first version better. I like your guitar playing and the song, by the way.

You know, that's a dead giveaway that people can tell real from fake. They just are confused about which is which--if that makes any sense. I'm not enough of a statistics geek to put it into better words, but clearly people are picking up on something that is skewing the results heavily in one direction. I like the 2nd one better. I don't know if that's because it's a cleaner tone, or because it's the real amp, though.
In the forums that I posted this in only about 25% have guessed right.

Correct. If people couldn't discern between the two, it would be 50/50. The fact that they prefer one clip 3:1 is a virtual 100% proof that they can tell a difference, depending on sample size.

It is. But as I mentioned before, I like the first one best, noticeably so. I would have been really impressed had the direct sound been the first one, though!!!! I can get a good sound going direct, but so far, I've gotten better sounds micing things.
Alright, I suppose this has been up long enough. If you guessed that take 1 was the amp then you are correct. I believe the low end in take 2 is what fools the ear into thinking it's an amp. I'm just getting into recording and will have to work on better mic placement to capture the low end of the amp. Either way, it's pretty cool that anyone can get such a decent sounding clean tone from a $5 app.
