Get down! That is AWSOME dude!
Sounds really tasty! Good job Muris!
Yummie! I know what to do this weekend now!
Really good lesson Muris
I have actually been practicing my bending and this will be great to add in thanks
I have one question. I noticed a lot of teachers on this site, when they bend, use the pointer finger to mute the strings and also sometimes when they apply vibrato. Is this really necissary? Ive seen some players not use this technique (I don't)and still sound ground. Although I do sometimes get unwanted string noise during bends. Would you recommend I switch to that technique.
I love your tone, very warm and creamy sounding. Hope to get started on this one soon.
I actually picked this up from Pavel a few months ago. WHen playing you should ALWAYS be thinking about muting - its one of the reasons that our instructors have such a clean sound. This is a great way of guarding against unintentional string hits - you could thnk of it as insurance. You might not need it all the time but its good to have it there if you do need it !
ok, is there an explanation somewhere how to do this technique?
the point i think here is for you to observe on what his hand is doing, try to replicate that, see if it leads to you discovering what works for you and whatnot.
Anyway, great lesson! i love the solo, great melody and feel to it, and it appears as if your pick is glowing.
Awesome!! Love the bluesy bends.........
Thanks for kind comments guys,
appreciate it a lot!!
@Dash...I usually put index finger on string which is bended,to have stronger grip.
But it does mute strings a lot when I'm not bending.
Try it with and without this technique but always do your best to mute unwanted sounds.
If you have more questions,please!
awesome lesson muris just what i ws looking for
I love these kind of bends...
Muris´s got da blues! Nice tone
That was quite amazing, your bends are excellent!
Very catchy! I love it
Sweeeet! Really great!
wow this lesson is tougher than I thought, so weird bending techniques in there.
WoW! This is one of my favorite lessons! Great Job Muris!
What are some good bluesy keys and scales and what not?
Muris. well done.
the sound is amazing i would like to know your pickups, and your effect?
Best scale to get bluesy vibe is probably pentatonic.In this lesson I used mixolydian mode and major scale as well,regarding to chord progression.Every key is fine tho..
First try with pentatonic and keys like A,E,G etc.
Latter on when you find yourself good with these,add scales I mentioned above and in different keys.
Let me know when you notice any progress!!
i need this XD thanks a lot
Love that backing track
On those bends.. To get that technique down, which is called scraping I believe, you will need to learn how to mute. It takes a while to get good at it. Different people have different ways of doing it, but the way I figured out how to do it was to mute the strings I didn't want to sound with my right hand. So I would use the side of my hand to sort of mute the strings until I got to the string that was to be fretted and then I would let off. That may be the harder way to do it, I am not sure. Just give it time though.
Yes Sanders4617, there are many ways to mute while bending,palm muting is one of them of course.
For long duration bends to mute unwanted strings I'm also using right hand fingers.
Per example,if bend is on B string I'm touching G string with middle finger and high E with ring finger.
Just an idea,try as many as you can,
and mute the world!!
great lesson muris:)
but when you use like vibrato is it necessary to have your like wrapped around the neck?
That's probably best thing if you want to have much power in vibrato while bending...
But you find your position,the best that fits you...this is just way how I do it.
An old aged student here (from Argentina) thanking for this great lesson. Just needing to "catch the spirit" (timing, feeling, etc).
Anytime,pleasure is all mine!
Just let me know if you have any question please.
This is awesome man, you make these riffs sound sweet, and your distortion whenever you pick, makes your notes sound 'explosive'. Dunno how you do it man but both your tone and this lesson is FANTASTIC.
Thanks for this kind comment Atomix!
As I said before,I'm using small Korg Pandora straight into audio card.
hey muris nice lesson but why does your pick light up?
also is that an eddie van halen guitar because my uncle has one just like it with the same body style,pickups, and the fret board but his is just a little bit lighter than yours.
My pick is lightning cause it's The Light Pick
And yeah,this is Musicman Axis,a model build for Eddie,latter on he went on Peavey...
Thanks for kind words,glad you like lesson!!!
nice love it. Definitely learning this
nice class!!! I love blues...Im going to practice it
Thank's muris... Very nice sound
More blues still to come,for sure
gretings from belgium
help help ...... my fingers
I am practicing 3 hours bendings
very good lesson
which ampli you play ????
Hi Udo and greetings as well
Sorry to hear about your fingers but that means you're practicing a lot and that's good!!
I don't use real amp for lessons but Korg Pandora PX4D processor.
Check it out HERE.
That pick must be from space!
It's from US actually.
At first I thought I wouldn't like this since I'm not a blues person, but I was wrong! I loved that! Especially the slide and bend at 0:10.
Very inspiring and useful lesson . . .
