Hi mate! Welcome to your thread for Gab's Army! smile.gif

Your goals:

* Getting the "small" things right, like vibrato, bending and overall feel.
* Writing more music. Everything doesn`t have to be good, but it is about finishing stuff.
* Doing a lot of RECs to practice TIGHT recording guitar and playing with drums/click (going into studio hopefully soon)
* IF TIME: Learning more licks/solos, and the guilty pleasure shred now and then.

Thanks man! For now, I`ll try to do 2-3 RECs within the middle of October, with some variation in level, and then we can try to pinpoint a path from there? wink.gif

Hi Gab! A little check in, as I`m currently working on Guido`s new "power rock ballad lesson". I love this style of playing, as it combines both the feels and the shreds biggrin.gif I hope to post a REC within next week at latest.

Also, I`m playing a concert in a few weeks with a cover band, and this is one of the songs: https://open.spotify.com/track/6V2NDWnejBIe...BS0iTHydCA5GbLw

I got the bass line down, but I`m struggling a bit to hear exactly what goes on with the guitar. Sounds like some sort of capo, and maybe an alternate tuning from the sound of what I think is open strings. Are you able to help me out with stuff like this?

Hi mate! Thanks for the update!

I'm checking that song and the "guitar" tone is weird. Are you sure that they aren't using other type of guitar or string instrument?

It is a band with a lot of folky vibes, so would not suprise me if there are some mandolins inside the mix, but I thought the intro is mainly guitar. But could be lots of thing as soon as you throw alternative tunings and capo in the mix.

Yeah, I think that you can start by playing basic chords since I can hear them in the mix. But the key is to EQ your guitar like that.

Is there a live version of this tune?

Yes! and I don't think that you need to clone it. You can do your version. I'm sure that even their live version doesn't sound exactly like the album.

Phui...I was hoping for another 2-3 REC in the middle of October and now we`re in the middle of November. Time flies tongue.gif

I have been swamped doing other bands the last month: Stepping in as a sub on a weekend tour for some friends as well as arranged a coverband gig at work, so it`s not a lack of playing at least!

Still working with this one: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/6-Powe...k-Ballad-Licks/
I have a really hard time with the lick at 0:35/0:36, as it is one million notes per minute for a bar. Well, not exactly, but you see my point wink.gif
Is it any point putting up a REC, if I WRECK (pardon the pun) that one tiny lick?


Also, I`m playing Focus - Sylvia with the cover band next week. Thought about putting up a video here, since I`ve been playing it far too long without having feedback. I might be doing something weird here and there.

Hi mate, great to hear from you!

Thanks for the update. You can share a take at REC and clarify that you know that the lick needs work but that you are sharing it to receive feedback based on the other parts of the lesson. That can work, what do you think?

Sounds cool! I`ll try to have it up tomorrow, if I`m able to do a decent take smile.gif

Boom!

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...p=0&#entry0

When I first started filming, this was for once in a lifetime actually the first take (except from the truly first where I forgot to turn of my tuner tongue.gif )

Not perfect, but I`m rather pleased after not practising that much the last two weeks.
I do think it sounds a bit off in pitch here and there - Not sure if that is me, or the guitar needing new intonation after the norwegian winter has set in. But I thought at least a couple of the vibratos sounded good. I`ll be awaiting your feedback smile.gif

As usual, thanks for super detailed feedback! Will take this with me in the attempt at take two!

Regarding the lick that were different: That`s the lick I mentioned above here, and asking about how bad it would be to kill one riff. Instead of wrecking it, I changed it a bit, as stated in the REC post wink.gif Not sure if "allowed", but I am a year of AP practicing away from nailing it as it is now tongue.gif

Oh yes!! I forgot it! But don't worry it didn't affect the grading note at all. I'm glad to know that you find it helpful!
