Cheers Todd,

Jstcrsn:

Cheers

Phil

A better video, I still think it's technique or lack of it wink.gif I can get it to ring out more, it's just in the heat of recording I go to pieces wink.gif

I realised after doing this one that the guitar volume wasn't up fully.

The one finger technique is not your best bet that far up. I'd say use at least two fingers to be able to get adequate pressure that you can still control. Too much and it's sharp, to little and you get no sustain. Vibrato is key here. I notice you are not doing much vibrato. Without vibrato to keep the string ringing, notes will die out quicker, especially with the volume down smile.gif I'm glad it's not our frets! In the last vid it sounded like it was fretting out. Is this the same on all your guitars?
check out my vid here about 27 seconds in I hit fret 19 and hang on it for a bit. It's an old Ibby RG7620. Your ibby should have at least as much sustain as this guy has. I put a high note in there just for you and did a run down to the low string past the 12th fret to show sustain on a lower string as well. 7 string scales are fun!

Thanks Todd,

I was deliberately not doing any vibrato just to show the pure guitar voice. I wanted to show why I didn't think it was a fret issue and was more about technique, or lack of it.

I haven't checked any other guitars, This is my only 24 fret apart from my PRS SE 7 String which Doesn't get much use. I rarely go that far up on my other guitars because of my lack of understanding of the fretboard, it's as though, if there aren't 24 frets I'm thinking I haven't got enough notes up there laugh.gif

Cheers.

Phil

Just to make sure it's not an issue with that guitar, try the high frets on your other guitar. Doesn't have to be 24. Just go high and do the same thing to see if you get the same result. Otherwise we don't have a "control" for our little test. sad.gif

Will do when I get home buddy, but the notes one that last video were ringing out better.

Cheers

You are probably getting better at it each time you make a vid and each time you practice. Which is a good thing smile.gif Playing the upper decks takes wads of repetition. It's way different than playing the lower decks. Finger pressure is different, vibrato is a bit different, etc.

I'm just curious to see how it goes for you on the other axe. I"m glad you are getting better as you go on this. Add more bits in to your soloing as you go, it will get much better over time.
