Well fought Soldier!!! You have some great multi picking going on here Soldier!! Multi picking is a technique that some players struggle with. You have taken to it like a duck to water and it's great to see. Solid muting and picking here as well. Your multi picking is very precise and that is really the key to multi picking. If your timing is off, multi picking licks will sound terrible. The good news is your timing is very solid. As you increase speed, multi picking sounds very spiff. It gets a rythmic pulse going that can work really well in lead work. See if you can keep pushing your multipicking speed as we go. Also, your playing a big arpeggio here as well and you are doing it smoothly. This is to prep you for doing full sweeps. It's good to see you doing the correct picking on this part also. As you speed this up it will sound more "Yngwie".

You just...

LEVELED UP!!!

Well done!! This one requires a solid mute with all the open strings and your muting has come a long way. Also your picking is good and clean here. Best of all, you end up with a nice big vibrato!!! Your vibrato has also come a long way and it's great to see. You are learning things in bootcamp that have helped with quick licks and learning things in quick licks that are helping in bootcamp. keep it up!!

You just.....

Thats my plan sadly. It was really hard to find a guitar under $500 that was worth having. This was honestly the only Ibby under that amount that I'd want to even own. Then bam, they destroy it on the shipping.

QUOTE (Caelumamittendum @ Feb 25 2021, 09:38 PM) *
Ouch, that's a huge damage! I'd say return if possible.



If Id have known they were going to ship in a gig bag Id have bought a case. It's impossible to find a good ibby in this price range for some reason. Very dissapointing.
QUOTE (klasaine @ Feb 25 2021, 10:22 PM) *
Definitely return it.

If you are new to the world of building a pedal board, not to worry. Here is a simple guide to putting together a basic pedal board for about $500. These are just suggested pieces. Most of them are chosen because they offer good value for money. These are NOT high end pieces. However, they are good enough to get you started. The fun thing about a pedal board is that it’s never really finished. One is always swapping out the boxes for something new. It’s a continual evolution in the search for tone. Some folks, have zero interest in a pedal board. They just skip directly to using a plugin, or a multi fx unit. This is just fine. However, building a pedal board, a real, actual pedal board with actual pedals that one has to connect and power and twist some knobs, is a great way to understand how to build a good tone. Once you have this understanding, it can be applied to a plugin or to a multi fx unit. The same concepts apply. Pedal order, settings, etc. I would suggest to every single guitar player on earth, that building a pedal board is worth doing. Even if you eventually end up selling all of it. It’s a satisfying endeavor. To wit.

1.)PEDAL BOARD: On Stage Stands GPB2000 ( $50 )

To start with, you are going to need something to mount your pedals on. Pedal boards come in all shapes and sizes and prices. You can just build one out of wood if you like. At the high end you can spend thousands on a custom unit with all of the cables and routing built in. As this is a “starter” kit, let’s start with the GPB2000 from ON STAGE STANDS. It comes with a gig bag and it’s a sturdy piece. It’s made out of metal and it’s very solid. Best of all, it’s only fifty bucks.
https://amzn.to/2ZQ6vLl

2.)POWER SUPPLY: Joyo JP-02 ( $50 )
One of the most important bits is your power supply brick. Each pedal needs at least 9 volts of power. You may decide to mount a mini power amp on your board which can require twice that amount of voltage. That’s why I love this little unit. The JOYO JP-02 supports several voltage options and it has a hand blue LED for each power plug which is very handy when playing a dark club and trying to see your board. As a matter of fact, I like this unit so much it’s the one I have on my pedal board. It’s solid, it’s quiet, it’s built like a tank and it’s only $50.
https://amzn.to/2ZPsIcn

3.)PATCH CABLES: MXR ($13)

Patch cables are a very important bit of your board. These MXR cables are handy because they have very flat headed connectors which allow you to mount your pedals closer together and get more pedals on your board. MXR makes solid gear. You can get a 3 pack of patch cables for $13.
https://amzn.to/3ktXQrd


4.)MOUNTING VELCRO TAPE: Donner ( $10)

Your pedals will need to be mounted to your board. An easy way to do this is with heavy duty velcro tape. You can do it any way you like really, but this is what most folks end up doing as it works and it’s cheap. You can get a 2 meter roll of this tape for $10.
https://amzn.to/3szPEJ3

5.)WAH PEDAL: VOX 847A ( $100 )

Wah pedals come in and out of vogue all the time. So you can probably skip this one if you don’t think a wah is a critical part of your tone. However, as any player who uses a wah knows, it’s a great way to make any solo sound more expressive. VOX has been making wah pedals a long time and they sound great. This pedal is built to withstand abuse and makes a great addition to any board.
https://amzn.to/2P2Tf3B

6.)OVERDRIVE PEDAL: Joyo Vintage Overdrive ( $35 )
An overdrive pedal is a very important part of your tone. This is NOT a DISTORTION PEDAL. There is a difference. An overdrive is like a “light” distortion pedal, essentially. It’s meant to boost and drive a signal a little harder. You have probably heard of the TUBE SCREAMER by Ibanez. It’s the gold standard of overdrive units. This unit uses the same audio chp as the screamer and far cheaper. It’s built in a metal housing and sounds great. I have owned this unit personally and it sounded just as good as my tube screamer.
https://amzn.to/2ZSPUXa

7.)DISTORTION PEDAL: Pro Co Rat 2 ( $70 )
Now this is a distortion pedal. It’s mean, raw and aggressive. There are TONS of options for distortion pedals. This one is a traditional choice and it’s also built like a tank and will tolerate having a beer spilled on it or being run over by a van and still work properly. It can go from fuzz tone to ripping lead tone. You can use the overdrive as a clean boost (with gain set to zero) and use the RAT on top of it. A little tweaking will give you a scorching lead tone.
https://amzn.to/3aVgKEv

8.)DELAY PEDAL: T.C. Electronic Echo Brain ( $70 )
A delay pedal is what one uses to create repeats of a given note. Players like the EDGE from U2 make great use of delay for rhythm playing, it’s also handy for lead work. This one is an analogue style delay so it sounds nice and warm. It’s a great unit, sturdy and sounds great and it’s only $70
https://amzn.to/2NHwP7F

9.)CHORUS PEDAL: Behringer Stereo Chorus ( $55 )
A chorus pedal is what gives a guitar a choral, swooshing type of effect. This is a stereo chorus unit so you can run you pedal board in stereo/two channel out mode if you like. However, most live setups are often run in mono since so many clubs use mono sound setups in the house P.A. This unit is essentially the same thing as a much pricier unit from BOSS. It’s got a metal housing, sounds the same and it’s way cheaper. ]
https://amzn.to/2O0i7Zx

10.)REVERB: Valeton Coral Verb II ( $70 )
Reverb is an effect that gives a sense of space. It makes your tone sound like it’s an amp in a room of any given size up to a very huge room if you like. A little reverb goes a long way. This unit has a host of reverb settings and it’s built to last and best of all it’s only $70.
https://amzn.to/3aWCyiS

And BAM!! You’ve got a very spiff sounding pedal board, with a gig bag, power supply, and cables. All for about $500. These are just suggestions to keep the price down. You can use any unit you like.

This is some of the most practical advice on getting started on youtube that I've ever heard. I'm surprised I have not run in to this video before. It's got over EIGHT MILLION VIEWS. Quite a viewership. He makes some very common sense suggestions that I've been making to people for some time now. I think he puts it all together a bit better though. It's a great vid imho for anyone who might want to share their work on youtube. I know it can be daunting for people these days. It's so freaking hard to make any kind of mark or get any traction on youtube and then when you do get traction, burnout sets in. I wish I'd seen his vid years ago.

What do you think?

I was a bit sticker shocked by that price tag! $2700? Egad. I guess it must not be considered to crazy or they wouldn't be trying to charge that much. The "MISHA" strat is almost a contradiction in terms. I remember seeing him with one on instagram and I thought it was a joke of some kind, but nope. Mr. 7 string Chug now has a sig strat smile.gif

Fender owns Jackson (almost 20 years now along with Charvel, Gretsch, etc).
You want a "modern spec'd" Fender - buy the Jackson. FMIC still makes the money.
Pretty savvy if you ask me.

Yeah! Then I'll tell you. He knows that this is not the supeb option but it's a step forward in quality comparing to the focusrite (2i2 2nd gen) that he had.

So I thought Id try to order a guitar from guitar center online. Found an ibby premium for under $500. It shows up but it's now got a huge chunk crushed in on it. What do you think, should I return it?

Thanks guys!!!! She started just getting sick all over the place one morning and wouldn't stop. Then couldnt' get her meds to stay down. Went back for a shot of something and and it helped her hold her meds. Finally, after a couple of days of this, she seems to be doing better. I was worried when I saw her throwing up blood that she was not going to live. Evidently it was just some sort of bad tummy infection. Not going to take her to the pet hospital at this point, I think she is past the worst of it. Pets are family. When they are suffering, it's just awful as a puppy parent. Thanks for your support and patience guys wink.gif Lucy says thanks too smile.gif

I'm a bit out of pocket just now as my dog lucy has gotten some sort of stomach infection and is requiring round the clock tending and clean up. We are giving her medicine and if it doesn't stop in the next day or so we are going to take to her stay at the pet hospital. Having lost my two previous pets to illness, I'm really not wanting to lose her as well. I'll be back posting up a storm asap.

Thanks for your patience

Some very tricky single string work here. There are tons of licks that happen on just one string. It can be hammering/tapping, or it can be one note at a time bouncing back and forth on an ope string. the fingers can change direction at any time and some licks feel like they are backwards. This is just part of the fun. You keep a solid mute here Soldier and play the licks well. Even the crazy tapping with the open string and tap hand traverse. Impressive work Soldier! String noise is kept at bay as well. You've got this one. Time for what's net!!

You just..

Your vibrato continues to improve which is a good thing to see. Not too long ago your vibrato was not quite this good. The more vibrato you do, the better it will get. Without vibrato this lick and most lead licks, can sound dynamically flat. Adding vibrato gives any lick some energy. Keep working on it as you move forward! Well played! You just...

Well fought Soldier! This one is all about the ECON picking. Shapes like this combine several elements at once which is what makes it difficult to play. The most important thing is the econ picking on this one. Without Econ, this lick gets much more awkward to play. With econ picking, it's a lot more smooth. It's built so that the fretting hand will need to use the pinky, which you do well! It's also built so that econ works better than alt picking. Econ picking can feel very odd at first, but once your hand gets used ot it, it can really open your playing. The only issue I see/hear is that your palm mute seems to be allowing a bit of string noise to get through but when one speeds up, muting and everything else get more difficult. The angle of your hand might be the issue. See if you can pull your guitar around to the left a bit more so that when your hand plants on the bridge, its' easier to get it flat on the trem and do a more complete mute. You've got this one sorted. Time to move forward!

You just..

LEVELED UP!

Hey sarge,

Here is my mission 16. I focussed on also palm muting the low E string.
I noticed that from 100 bpm everything is harder to keep clean and is hear more guitar noise.
This recording day wasnt my best day but i think that this excersise really helped my economy picking smile.gif

Youtube is getting more and more competitive. We’ve talked about how production values are going up and such. However, people are not just attracted to high quality videos. They just want videos that are interesting and fun to watch. You can record your vid just using your cell phone or your web cam. In the end, it just needs to be something worth watching. Let’s talk about a few tips to try to get a bit more traction on your youtube videos.

1.)LOOK FOR TRENDS ON YOUR OWN VIDEOS
We talked about using youtube analytics to see the results of videos that you have already shared. Here is a link to that article.

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...t=0#entry785026

Look through your videos that you have up and see which ones are doing well. Which are your top 10 most viewed videos. Of those videos, what is something you notice that they have in common? Are they about a certain type of subject, do they have thumbnails that look compelling, etc. Try to find the reason that these videos are getting traction. Once you have identified the reason, try to replicate that on your other videos if possible. If it’s not possible, for example, because the best views are on certain types of content, then focus on making new videos with that type of content. Also, update the end screens on your videos.
At the end of each video, you can use a template to add an “end screen”. This is where you can select other videos to be presented to the viewer for them to click on at the end of your video so that you can keep them watching your content. The last thing you want the viewer to do is click away from your videos. If you don’t have end screens, then youtube will select a batch of videos to show the viewer from which to select. So it’s a good idea to make your own end screen and leave it up for 30 seconds or so, to give people a chance to click on another one of your videos. Here is an article on how to add end screens.
https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6388789?hl=en


2.)ANALYZE YOUR AUDIENCE RETENTION GRAPHS IN ANALYTICS

This will show you how long your audience is actually watching your videos. Each video has a graph of audience retention. E.G. How long they are watching before they click off. You want them to watch as much as possible, so looking at these graphs is important. Then find the spot in each video where people are leaving and going to watch something else. You’ll see a time stamp on each graph where it starts to dip and go lower. Watch your video to find out what is happening when people are leaving. It’s possible that your audience just has a short attention span, in which case, you should probably make shorter videos. If they are sticking around for the entire video, then you are doing it just right.

3.)ANALYZE YOUR END SCREEN CLICK THROUGH RATE
This information is also available in ANALYTICS. Find which videos have the best end screen click through, e.g. which vids have end screens that get people to to click on another video. The end screen should come on while you are still doing something. Then ask the user to actually click on another video. Creating a call for action will encourage viewers to keep watching.

4.)EXPERIMENT
While you want to give your audience what they want, it’s also important to experiment. If you do the same thing over and over, your audience may get bored and stop watching. Get creative and try new things and new types of content that are different from what you usually make. Keep tabs on how much viewership you get on these videos. You might find something that works really well. You can start doing more of whatever works, but don’t give up on trying new things as your audience wants you to keep evolving. If they get bored they will leave.

5.)USE PLAYLISTS MORE INTENTIONALLY
Playlists are not just for organizing content, they are really meant to get people to view more than one video of yours. If you have a good playlist of videos that are your best content, people will keep watching when the next video starts. So don’t think of playlists as just an organizational tool, think of it as a way to curate your videos for your audience to save them the trouble of having to go find something else to watch.

Getting youtube traction is not easy or quick. Keep at it and you’ll get traction smile.gif
This video was very helpful in making this video.

Three new Sisnature Ibby's were touted at this past NAMM. As you guys know, I"m a big IBBY fan, but honestly, I was a bit let down by these as none of them feature the neck profile I adore and the Paul Wardingham signature (amazing player) has a Wizard III profile which I've never really enjoyed. Whats worse, the blue one doesn't even have a trem with fine tuners. To each his own and I know that roasted guitar necks are very trendy just now, especially now that ebony is going away. Even the gilbert model is another fireman model. It has very unique pickups and it's a unique guitar. But, having owned one of the RG Gilbert guitars, I did prefer that to the hard tail. But that's just me. I'm sure wads of folks will love these guitars. What do you guys think?

I bought one just on the price and reviews before I thought to suggest it. It turned out to be a great little drive. It hangs off of a usb hub and pushes 400MB per second. Very easy way to add a TB of very fast storage to a production system. Also, the fact that it's the size of a jump drive is handy. Hope this price holds for a while as I'd like a second one. You got to click the coupon button and get the sale price during checkout. enjoy!

One thing to keep in mind with large track counts, it could be something other than the interface. in a large track count project, especially with plugins/vst/etc. the cpu load is increased and ram load is increased. If there isn't sufficient ram on the machine, it will have to start swapping to the hard drive. If the drive is an ssd, this is usually ok. If it's a regular drive, it can slow things down. Also, check cpu usage during playback. There are cpu utilities built in to win/mac. If the cpu is being overly taxed, that too can cause latency. So basically, it can be down to system resources. If the computer has usb 3, then the interface itself should have more than enough bandwidth. Also, take the samples setting down if it's in reaper. Take it down as low as he can get it before the system become unstable. This will reduce "round trip latency".

However, that MOTU m4 unit is worth a look imho. It's top notch tech and has very good usb drivers. 2.5 ms Round Trip Latency (at 96 kHz with a 32 sample buffer). which is awesome.

Is the main Drive an SSD or standard drive? If the system just fails it does default to a restart. This can be very annoying if you are in the middle of working on something. If you try everything suggested and it's still not fixed, I'd say try to run the windows disk utility. It's rarely used as windows is supposed to fix these issues on the fly. Still, if a drive is going bad/has a bad sector (assuming it's NOT and SSD) you can run the windows disk utility manually.

https://www.easeus.com/partition-master/two...in-windows.html


if it is and SSD, DO NOT RUN ANY OF THESE DISK UTILITIES ON IT. Some folks are reporting disk failures after running disk utilities on SSDs after updating windows.

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions! I've tried different things and changed some configurations.

I've modified this, I hope that it doesn't have a negative impact.

3) Uncheck Automatically restart. Then click OK.

Fingers crossed that it doesn't restart today.

I'll keep you updated!

Like you I was never really a fan of the band. It was a bit too much blast beat and scream/growl for me. I never really listened to them at all until this guy joined and really just appreciate his playing. Started following him on social media a while back and only later realized he had joined BDM. Guy is just a monster player.

Killer guitar work! I'm not into this band but these guitar lines are very inspiring! I really enjoyed his vibrato, and alternate picking techniques. The solo is very creative, and from what I can hear it includes many modulations or modal interchanges. Did you get into their songwriting concepts?

Sounds pretty darn killer gotta say. Love that guys vids. I saw a myasnikov preamp in his rack and messaged him about it and come to find out he bought it after seeing one of my vids on it. He's got some amazing gear. Also a cool guy with great vids. Thanks for the share!!

Thanks for the share. It was a great loss to music when he passed. The good news is that music is eternal. People will be discovering his playing for decades to come. Legendary players become something that is shared among those who just love the instrument and love music. Long after a players music has faded from popular awareness, it's still shared and appreciated and learned. That's a great legacy to have.

Glad you were able to get it! Here in the states, its' just people 65 and older and front line health workers. The huge winter storms that shut down the middle of the country didn't help things. Some of the vaccine that was in the super cold refridge units went bad evidently. Millions of people were without power or heat or water.

Well this evening I went to get my Bill Gates Tracking Chip installed, AKA the Covid19 vaccine. I had a choice of the Oxford or the Pfizer and went for Pfizer.

At the moment no side effects, not even a sore arm, I've heard more people say that they felt rough after the Oxford one than the Pfizer.

Anyone else had their first one yet?

Stay safe folks.
