great work man!

Alright first of all I wouldn't want to be suggesting you anything I'll just say my comments according to my taste. As we all know our music is our own expression and we all have different ways of expressing through our art.

The very first thing I noticed is the amount and/or the volume of your delays. There's a lot going on in the background of your soloing. I (personally) would want to hear just your solo and very minimal amount of delays in the background. As little as you can, but not too loud.

smile.gif

Now about phrasing, I agree with Bogdan but the thing I noticed more is your dynamics. You're attacking the strings all the way from start to end. Not that it's a bad thing but it kind of makes you a flat line instead of an actual wave of sound. It is very important to know when to attack & when to keep it down.

For example these set of notes for this particular part should be played with (maybe) lesser drive/gain and lesser attack because it's a stanza. Now for this part which is the chorus I should add more drive/gain and attack even stronger.

Aside from that mate I think you're a really talented guitar player.

Your fingers are so accurate, your technique is flawless and you have very nice choice of notes. biggrin.gif

cheers!

On a normal day I would practice like every chance I get off work. Like on a break time, lunch break, coffee break. I would grab my guitar & just practice my ass off. Especially after work, so that's like 3 1/2 hours or 4 hours everyday.

But there are times when I feel like I'm repeating the same stuff over and over again then I just put the guitar down and do other things for a week. Then when I go back to the guitar, new ideas start coming out.

Yeah burning your fingers on the fretboard is good but sometimes it can also be the thing that will hurt you or slow your progress down. It's always good to rest every once in a while. In my humble opinion smile.gif But then that's just me.

Thought this might pretty interesting topic. When you buy a guitar do you plug it in prior to playing it. If so why. I do not think I have in hell 5 years or so. When I am looking at specific guitars it is the acoustics of the guitar I listen to and the playability.

So lets hear what you guys think and do.


In my opinion I usually ask the seller what type of wood was used on the neck. Or by simply looking at the neck you'll know if it's either maple or rosewood. I'm more of a rosewood type of guy simply because (based on experience) I find it hard to EQ the guitar if you use different amps on different gigs.

Bottom line is reading about the type of wood and the type of sound it gives really does help. I have this article copied from the net about different types of wood used in guitars and their sound, that's where I learned everything about wood.

I actually tried counting on 7/8 before I saw "kidding" on the bottom of your reply biggrin.gif laugh.gif LOL!

The result was this really wicked metric modulation, playing 7's over 5's. Which sounded cool biggrin.gif

Hey all! Some of you might be interested in this guitar competition. Maybe some of you know about it already. Figured I'd share it with GMC. If anything, its a real awesome backing track to practice to. (written by Keith Merrow) Grand prize is a Mayones guitar!



I was inspired to put in an entry. A lot of my ideas here are a direct influence from being at GMC the last year. I don't have high expectations as most players in the contest can play circles around me. Mostly did it for fun and come up with a more melodic approach. Feedback on this is welcomed, as I'm always trying to improve. smile.gif




biggrin.gif hey nice entry! you have a good sense of melody and nice tone too! smile.gif wish you the best of luck on this contest.

Hey I've got an idea for the lessons here at GMC, no idea if it is good, but anyways biggrin.gif

Well, I thought that maybe you could add like a listen only button to the video so it blacks out the screen, then you could use your ears to figure out the lesson, might be some great ear training that way.

I know it is a sort of dumb idea, since you can just scroll down, etc. But by doing that there is a chance you'll see the scales pattern and just overlook some tips without really wanting to and also when you have to pause the video and such you have to scroll back up and you might see some finger positioned and then you get a good idea of how to play the following thing.

Anyways, just an idea I had and thought i'd post it instead of just locking it up deep inside my brain tongue.gif

Cheers!

Tobias



Not bad, through ear training you develop a sense of everything from timing, rhythm & melody. Makes you eve more conscious about the chords and the patterns. smile.gif

Hey guys, i just started recording my own playing and im disappointed with myself tongue.gif
i usually just record a sequence of chords (basic chords) and play lead over them. the chords sound well together, but the lead doesnt go with it.i think im playing wrong notes over the backing track. what can i do to improve my playing over chords? do i learn theory?
are there any videos here that could help, or someone?
i will really appreciate it! smile.gif



It is important to learn theory and learn the scales that you need to play over certain chords of different feel.

But aside from all those technical stuff another important thing is to train your ears. You need to listen to a lot of music and try adopting their feel and their melodic concept. That way you're not just training your ears but you're also training your sense of melody. You'll be surprised with the results after studying and listening to a lot of songs for a couple of months. Of course you'll still have to struggle through the recording process of making yourself sound good but that takes hours of non stop trial & error. Which is a good thing because you listened, learned & understood a lot of music already know the difference between a good melody and an even better melody in terms of guitar soloing.

I hope this helps, this is what I do. wink.gif I never stop listening to other forms of music. Whether it's metal, jazz, rock, opera, pop or rnb. Soon your style will just rise up out of the blue and you have the best thing you've ever created, your MUSIC! biggrin.gif

Hi Fayeed. Usually, it works like this: an instructor records a backing track and posts it in a separate thread together with deadline and whether it's supposed to be a video collab or an audio only collab. Then anyone, studends and other instructors, can post their takes after which the initiator mixes everything together. See for instance the forum posts

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=615255

or

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=614247

for the final results of recent collabs.

All this is ongoing, about once a month some of the instructors initiate a new collaboration, and I am assuming that you are most welcome to participate in any of them. Better still, come up with one of your own for all of us to record a solo for!

H

PS There is a sticky topic in the Practice Room subforum listing the currently active collaborations.


Great! thanks for the info! biggrin.gif

I'm sure the branded ones are really useful but I'm pretty happy using ordinary hair tie.

Once I stepped into a girl's shop and ask for hair tie with different colors. The female attendant ask if it was for my wife or daughter or girlfriend, I said it's for me (I was shaved bald at that time). She said "Sir you do realize you're bald right?". I said "Of course I'm bald! It's for my guitar". The attendant stared at me for five seconds and being a non guitar player she gave me a really long "riiiiiiiiiiiiiight, for the guitaaaaaaar. greeeeeaaaaaaat. Very good sir." biggrin.gif

That's a good looking guitar! biggrin.gif and my favorite pickup configuration too biggrin.gif

What's my favorite guitar?

I used to like all maple but I found my love in Mahogany Body and Maple/Rosewood neck. It just resonates through my body as I play with that kind of wood biggrin.gif

my pickup configuration is really simple. I don't use single coils.... That's it biggrin.gif

It's all a matter of practice. Sitting down and beating the life out of your guitar (through practicing of course). Technique is all but technique which require the right amount of skills.

Now skills can be developed in just a matter of time. Some quickly, some after a while and some take a long time. But it all boils down to how many times you repeat the same pattern over and over again in a day. That should be enough time for you to develop the skill.

Think of it like business. The amount of time you practice and the way you think about your guitar playing now will reflect how you will be in the future. You're not just giving time to practice you're INVESTING time for a better guitar technique that you can use and enjoy over and over again throughout your life.

My main point is don't worry about speed now. Just worry about how to make it sound right.

"Why play something fast that doesn't sound right?" wink.gif

Play it slow first and make it sound right, gradually working your way up to being fast and MELODIC. biggrin.gif

hope this helps! biggrin.gif

Tommy Emmanuel & Chet Atkins sounds good but I used to play a lot of acoustic too and aside from Tommy or Chet one of my other favorites in acoustic guitar playing would be Earl Klugh. You might want to check him out. One of his simple & fun to learn songs. biggrin.gif
