tip; For darken or brightening the tone to match a backing track, try balancing with the right cab. first before adjusting the presence or treble knobs of the amp cause likely you'll get a bit more organic tone if you handle that from the ir mic. placement options.


Excellent tip! Applying aggressive post-EQ ("in the mix") is probably the #1 tone killer out there.

If you start out wth a sound you like and stick to slight EQ adjustments it will sound so much more pro/organic.

Sometimes YouTube suggestions are great!



I was still watching while I posted this thread, but just finished watching, and I can honestly say that was one of the best videos I have seen on YouTube in a long time!


Yeah these a really good!

Interesting how Paul has never visited the barber shop since The Beatles took off.

Sounds good to me. They went for a fairly organic sound. The verse vocals are quite wet but that's obviously what they wanted - and it makes sense when the chorus kicks in.

Very informative. I have wondered about this for a while as I never seem to have enough usb ports. The one you use is not something you typically find in regular stores where I live.

I have been using a Helix with a line 6 FRFR speaker for about a year and really love it. It took me a while to figure it out, but now it is great. I have used it live a few times, at home, at band practice. I really like it.

The only negative is their are so many tones/options you have to be careful to just narrow in on what you want and not spend hours playing with the different amps/pedals/speakers.


Good point! I also used to see hat as a problem.

Nowadays though, I see that tone search as one of the most importants aspects of practicing - because tone has such a major impact on how the listener perceives your playing.

Cool Adam, this is a great lesson that will help you polish their picking basics.

Your left hand looks a bit more relaxed this time - so well done with that.

I would advise you give your right hand the same treatment: At this tempo you should be able to have a relaxed/non-tensed right hand and small right hand movement.

Playing wise you are in sync and locking in to the beat at times - but there are also many places where you loose timing and hand sync. Especially when there is a change of rhythm / pattern.

This is a clear indication that you have practicing this at a tempo that might feel comfortable to you during the easier parts (ie the intro) but which is too fast for you to nail the trickier sections.

I think that you could nail this lesson quite easily if you allowed yourself to play at tempo slow enough for you to relax your hands and prepare your mind for the trickier sections.

You get a 4 from me - I am looking forward to your next take!

Cool to see another take from you mate - and great lesson choice!

I think you are already sensing this one is not ready for REC yet. Some major issues here:

* I cannot really hear the backing and I don't recognise Gab's original lesson/backing. For this type of lesson - which is not really focused around working on a specific technique - the feedback I will give you is going to be based on the overall musical performance. And I cannot do that if I cannot hear the setting/ band / backing.

* try to make sure both your hands are visible as this will make it much easier for us to give you good feedback.

I won't be grading this take but will keep the thread open so the other instructors get a chance to comment.

Very nice!

The only thing I can comment on here is the last run with string skipping (0:55) where your hands are not quite as synced.

Given that you master this lesson, you could challenge yourself and try to play this sam piece but without any picking at all (using legato). When you are able to do that - try playing it with picking again. You will see how your hands will be magically in sync and your tone will be beyond amazing thanks to this. This is obviously beyond the scope of the lesson, but it is how I go about practicing technique nowadays.

You get a 9 from me!

Yes, and the double door models are best as you can tailor that acoustic space by opening only one door. Similar to speaker cabs that have ports or a combo of open/closed backs wink.gif


Yeah, but that setup will never give you 'warm' tones - even if you keep both doors open for a long time.

I can imagine it sounds good anyway when you have acoustics from whole fridge to amplify the hits.

Thanks so much Adam for submitting your first REC take - it makes it so much easier for us to help you progress faster!

Over all this is good and you have got the feel for the tune down. There are some important general areas for you to work on - that will def boost your playing ability:

1 - Your left hand looks very tense, by relaxing it you will benefit in so many different ways. Your timing, precision and fluidity will be vastly improved. A good approach to work on controlling your hand tension - is to start with a new lesson (in which you have not worked in any "bad habits" yet). Make sure you practice below your comfort speed so you can think about a relaxed posture.

2 - Bending/vibrato - when doing this you should use all left hand fingers you have at your disposal. So if you bend with the ring finger, your middle- and index finger should also help bend the string. This will give you much better premises for a good vibrato and help you bend in pitch.

Furthermore it would be very useful to see your right hand as well, as we might be able to give you some goo dpointers.

I will give you a 6 - and I am extremely eager to follow your progress curve which I predict will be steep! cool.gif

Same here smile.gif I'm using my studio monitors as FRFR stereo cabs. It allows you to dial in much more detailed tone imho. This is a condenser mic in the room picking up the sound from the Kali being used as FRFR guitar cabs. That's why you can hear the pick strikes and string vibrations. I've got the volume on the monitors pretty low, low enough that you can hear guitar pick strikes on the mic, and they still sound great.


Todd


Yeah, sounds great!

From what I understand of this so far, this will not have any impact on GMC.

However it will have a major impact on those who want to make a living music/Internet. For example, US people will loose a huge market share of ad revenue given that the whole EU won't be able to access a big portion of youtube content.

Does Kemper profiler come with set of models or do you need to buy those you're interested in?


It comes with thousands of free models/profiles, you just need to connect it it to the Rig Manager. Many of those profiles are the exact same tones as can be heard on top dollar studio recordings, like the profiles by Michael Wagener.

Thanks a lot for following up morphin, and great you found a work around! I tested this in firefox (on mac) and I don't have the problem. But I am guessing you are on windows?

Does anyobody else with windows/firefox want to try to download two different backing tracks from one lesson? If you are affected by the bug, you will download the same backing twice.

For me - having the possibility to do endless variations/experimentation on a daily basis is key.

So I guess the biggest thing for me was when I went digital - and started using so called 'FRFR' monitors instead of a guitar cab.

This allowed me to start using various different speaker simulations (mostly from kemper rigs). Of course, all the different preamps and effects in the kemper help as well.

I think some underestimate the importance of the speaker, which makes up for half of your tone.

Beginner-Soloing #1

BY DARIUS WAVE


Thanks! I tried download the one called "120" and the one called "60", from this lesson:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginner-Soloing-1/

You can do the same. When you listen to them you will hear one is really slow, and the other one is faster.

"60" stands for 60 bpm ( = beats per minute)

Let me know if it makes sense!
