Still too heavy on the reverb/delay?
Sure. Here is the screenshot.

Delay time is 175ms.
Remaining settings are more or less visible in the screenshot.

What about bypassing Reveb and adding some more presence? I would like to hear your take with that adjustment...

Presence up, reverb off.

It became quite piercing in the ears on high notes IMHO. Made some further adjustments and cut some treble. Here it is:

Well done! I like the second audio. I think that bypassing reverb has been a good move. You can continue experimenting with your delay settings to have the right ambience, but this is definitely on the right track, do you agree?

Thanks! Yeah, I completely agree.

I went ahead with 1.5 repeat kind of delay. It's very subtle. I suppose that's what works best in blues context. How is that?

I also tried pushing the amp a bit harder with an overdrive. Here is a take with BD-2 in front.

Like! I think that both adjustments have been positive! Now I would continue polishing EQ.

Cool!
Ok, let me try that:

Frankly speaking, I don't know where do go with EQ tweaking. Boosting or cutting any band doesn't make it sound better in my opinion. Any hints?

Ok! I think that now you have a very convincing tone for the lesson and backing track. This process is what you need to do to keep on improving your tone. This is also something that can (should) be practiced, so the more you do it, the more skilled you'll become.

Does it make sense? smile.gif

Sure. I guess it's a never ending tone chase for every single guitar player out there.

I listened more carefully to few songs by Bonamassa. He has the most round, sick blues tone in my opinion. I noticed it's much less trebly and with more pushed mids. Here is where I got turning few EQ knobs and a bit more drive:

I like it more this way. What is your opinion?
I know it's not exactly Bonamassa biggrin.gif He has some ridiculous rig worth as much as a house by the way.

So where do I go now? Practice my vibrato and make another video out of it?

GREAT!!

Regarding the current lesson please dedicate some time to analyse what's happening regarding theory. Check out the chord progression and notice what's Jonathan using to play over it. Also, please do you own improvisations over the backing track using those concepts, and variations of the licks.


New lesson suggestion:

PS: Your playing on Kenny Wayne lesson is good but there is still some room to improve dynamics, and vibrato. There are also a few licks that can sound tighter (mostly the higher frets ones).
