I'm a guitarist who mostly plays metal live, and one of the main issues I always have is being able to hear myself (shocker, I know). It always leads to me overplaying, which used to be OK when I was younger, but old injuries are starting to catch up with me and I just don't have the endurance that I used to to play through it. I've been considering getting an in-ear monitor setup, just for myself, so that I can properly hear what I'm playing and adjust it to stay more relaxed. Would this work? My thought would be to have the receiver hooked directly into a mic set up on my cabinet, then lowering what I hear through my headphones down to a level that matches the rest of the band's stage volume. If in-ear setups were cheaper I would test this out, but looking at prices, it's too much of a commitment to go in blind like that. Most in-ear setups talk about getting the whole band on the in-ear train, but 1) I'd like the option of in-ears even if band members didn't want them or couldn't afford them, and 2) having a personal in-ear system means I can quickly set up for a gig without having to deal with inexperienced sound guys at local venues. TL;DR: can I just set up in-ears only to mic my own cab, and adjust it to match the rest of the bands stage volume? How well do you think it would work?
