Hi Claudio! Thanks for the new video! Great to know that this is helping mate!

I'll give you some comments regarding the first 20 seconds:

- Tone: The new tone sounds better. I would add some more treble or presence.

- Cleanness: Now that your tone has more drive, I noticed that you are having issues with cleanness. For example, at 00:09, it seems that an extra string is sounding. Something similar happens at 00:14. When playing metal (high gain style), it's important to mute all the strings that you are not playing. You can do this with the palm of your right hand but also with your left hand first finger.

- Vibrato: I can see what you are doing when playing vibrato with finger 2, but from what I can see, you are not using the other fingers to help finger 4 when playing vibrato at 00:18, and the same happens with the previous bend. Notice how Emir uses other fingers to give the one that is pressing more strength.
The first exercise here has cool bending/vibrato tips: https://youtu.be/JNDyI5b3Fh8

- Timing: The phrase at 00:07 can sound tighter.

thanks,

i'll work abit on this and get back to you over the next couple of days. I need to change a bit the the way I play it, with the extra finger, but it helps.

i can do that cleaner, just that rec had a bit of extra noise, but yeah with extra gain I need to mute a bit better, I think this should be ok.

agree the 00:07 can defy sound tighter, but for some reason i cannot get that exact sound, it has not "clicked" yet, I think I need to put a bit more strenght in the Hammer on/pull off 4 H 5 P 4 to get closer.

on tone , I'm maxed out on treble or presence at the moment.

A related tone question for you: is this a bridge, or neck pick up solo (or both)?
my initial guess was to use neck pick up, but worth checking with you.

cheers,
Claudio

Hi Claudio!

Your plan sounds good. It seems that Emir is using his neck pick up, but the sound is more like a bridge pick up. I'm comparing your tone again and you are pretty close with the current settings. Forget about adding more treble! smile.gif

Hi

Another attempt as discussed, 1st part only. With LP this time, what do you think?

Cheers,



Claudio

It's getting better! Remember all the things that I've marked in the previous feedback and keep on practicing with those things in mind. Please re-read each detail from my feedback and let me know if you have any question!

Two more relevant things to work:

- Notes duration (avoid making them sound like with staccato)
- Remember to use other fingers to help the one that is doing vibrato. (00:24)

Keep on the hard work!!
