Hi Claudio! Welcome!


Hi,

have not tried rhythmic lessons, but happy to work on the

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Funk-Workout/, sound like a good project to test a bit my rythm

glad you also think the Santana lesson is a good one for me

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Santana-Europa-Part-1/ lesson

I think these 2 should keep me going for a little bit (and off course the Blues Licks!!)

Cheers

Excellent!! Nice Strat mate! smile.gif

Based on this takes, I can say that your rhythm issue is more related to lead guitar. I think that these patterns sound good but there is still room to get more from that Stephane's lesson.

- Timing: Notice that you are playing a bit before the beat. Stephane plays totally tight. As this is a rhythm exercise, that's what I recommend you trying to do.

- Dynamics: I can heat that you are playing all strums with the same intensity. Listen carefully to the original lesson and see how the muted strumming is software, and there is also an overall 16th notes feel (which means that the first of each group of 4 notes is slightly accentuated). The second pattern sounds a bit better in this sense.


Let me know if you have any question!

Hi,
Still working on both, but wanted to share my first take on the Santana piece.
LP working a bit better for this one I find.
Cheers

Hi Claudio! Good job with this one! The main thing to adjust here is again timing. It's not as dramatic as the REC takes, but it's the element that you need to fix. You tend to rush the beat.

Do you usually practice playing over the instructor's take?

thanks Gabriel,

yes I do practice over the instructor's take. When I do it sounds to me like i'm in synch with it... but then i might just do my own thing when I'm with the backing track?

when you say "rush the beat", could you elaborate it a bit when you have a second?

I really want to fix this!

Cheers,

I mean that sometimes you play the licks faster than they are, and sometimes you play them a bit before you should do it, so it sounds like "hurried". One important question is... can you hear this in your video?

This is what I hear:

00:03: Those notes are rushed.
00:10: timing is irregular.
00:14: You play these 3 notes a bit before. (rush)
00:21: The same here. You need to work on this rhythm pattern.
00:25: Not completely tight.
00:29: Not completely tight.
00:40: Same
00:48: similar.
After that, the following licks sound tight! Just practice a bit more those bends.


Now doing a deeper analysis, I noticed that you tend to have issues with the same rhythm pattern and it mostly happens when there is no drums. It also happens in other parts, but it's more important when there is no drum marking tempo. This is normal and means that you need to work on your internal rhythm. You need to be able to keep tempo when there is no metronome or/drums.

Hi,

worked on those points, thanks again and can I can hear it too now!
I realized I was missing a "pause" on bar 1, 2 and 3 unsure.gif (and the repeats of those licks too obviously), so that was prob one of the reasons of the irregularities... in the rhythm

hopefully now a bit closer

PS i'm also really enjoying this Dorian scale/mode which is the first time i encounter, doing a bit of studying of it too since i'm on it

Hi Claudio! Yes! This is much better! There is still room to adjust timing, mostly in the parts without drums, but it's great to hear that you are improvising your timing! Have you been practicing over the original take? Keep doing it!

Hi,

thanks, glad you have also noticed the improvements!
Yes a bit of playing over the original lesson and looking at original tabs (which differ a bit from the lesson but just a little).
will have a closer look at the parts without drums, to see if i can spot it too

Cheers,
Claudio
