Hi Gabri,

hope all well, find below my 1st attempt at the Pop solo, feedback appreciated as always.

also this time i'm recording the amp into the PC directly so sound should be a bit better. I want to try to improve the tone to make it more similar to the original (using a crunchy tone + single coil neck pick up of the strat at them moment huh.gif ).

cheers,

thanks so much,

yeah agree many things to work on for sure, I didn't quite realize half of them!

I think that bending technique with the index finger to mute is something I need to incorporate for sure

Very nice seeing how you looked for the tone and how you approached it, I will be doing something similar see how close i can get.

cheers,

Hi Gabri,

hope all is good. Worked a bit more on the pop solo,I’m trying to capture more dynamics, better tone and bends!
There are a few things i can still improve, but i thought it was good point to get your feedback.

On the Legato lesson, that one is a real struggle!! i'm starting to get somewhere after a week of practicing but only abot 80% of the speed and still a couple of streches are quite tricky, slowly improving but defy a technique I have overlooked, so good to work on it.

cheers,

Thanks Gabri,

I think I can do a bit better on this one but glad you see the progress.
There are many little things in this lesson I start to appreciate more and more.

Tone-wise maybe a bit more gain and bass might make it warmer, I’ll play with it a little more.

Legato: I probably need another week of practice for a first sanity check.

Cheers,

Perfect! Yeah, Stephane's tone is warmer. It's a good idea to continue polishing and experimenting with tone. It's part of the learning process.

Hi Gabri,

Hope you are having a good week end. Please find below a bit more progrss on the PopSolo, I think I got a bit closer with the tone.

next one will be a video of the legato (probably at slower tempo)!

cheers,

Hi Gabri,

thanks for the feedback on the popSolo.

Here is the Legato practice. I'm finding this pretty hard despite I have practiced this daily for about 2 weeks (on average 30 min a day).

There has been improvement over the last week but I'm still very far away!

So you have here 2 takes one at about 80% of the speed and and the other at 86% of the speed.

I cannot even do this tight at 80% at the moment but I included both as it might be helpfull for you to see diff cam angles to help on correcting tecniques etc..

thanks,

I'm definitively too far out with fingers, putting too much pressure and probably building tension.
I'll try to incorporate these suggestions.

Hi Gabri,

I hope all is good. Didn't post here in a little while, but I have been practicing.

Worked a bit more on the PopSolo and much more on the legato... on the Legato I had to go even slower with the metronome to focus on hitting all the notes (which I realised I was not doing!)
attached one with a 75 bpm and 80 bpm. Not always clean, but a bit more in control. Also tryoing to keep the pinky closer, but still probaly too far out.
At the moment I trying to get it clean and consistent at this speed and then I'll try to speed it up.

see latest evolution of that one below, what do you think?

cheers,

PopSolo


Legato

Thanks Gabri,

glad to hear you think I'm on a good path on this Legato lesson, it is for sure a long path to 110bpm! But this is really a great excercise for me and working on it every day. In your reply there was a little issue with the audio, but I think I got the main message about thumb positioning and relaxing the hand, will try that and hopefully I can get this cleaner at 80bpm speed for now.

Regarding new melodic lesson, we had the Santana Style Rock and the BB Blues in the pipeline, I have also seen your new Play-Licks-Between-Chords lesson and I quite like this idea also give me excuse to try some improvisation, maybe I give this one a go now. What do you think?

Hi Gabri,

hope all well, did a bit of work on the "Play licks between chords lesson". It is a very nice lesson
Find below a go at the first part that you play twice (have not learned the second part yet)

Also some progress on the Legato Lesson now I practice at 95bpm, still occasionally I have some string noise (there is a bit towards the end), but feel more relaxed playing it. Added this into my routine and slowly making progress





cheers
Claudio
