I can't listen to the backing track at work because the transfer here is horrible. So I'm singing up for a blind date! smile.gif

Edit: I came back home and listened to the track. I love the specific tone of the guitar in it.

I'm adding it to my daily practice until the deadline and maybe I'll come up with something real nice! Once I'm familiar with D Minor scale I'll start applying vibrato and bending for some extra practice.

Posted by: yoncopin May 4 2019, 11:54 PM

This is right up my alley, such a killer backing! I have too many ideas will try to get a take in on time smile.gif

Ok, I recorded a couple parts for the intro/outro. Gonna keep jamming on it, but if you can use these I'll post all the files.

Hi everyone,

I really liked this backing track. I had some time yesterday to listen to it and came up with a little idea. First of all, I play some bendings and after the minute 0:15 I have an incomplete idea. I was thinking of creating a little harmony by playing the riff 1 octave up and then 2 octaves up, but I still want to add some notes notes in the middle. Please let me know what do you think about it. Probably tonight I could work on polishing this idea and will post an update.



Thanks!

Angel.

yeah!! Those are very rocker ideas mate!! I love your bends over the first section! I think that this is the energy that the track needs. You are definitely on the right track. Keep on these ideas coming!

That's very promising Angel! The first bends are everything this riff deserve! And I like your Jimmy Page type harmonizations during the riff! This is very good. Keep on experimenting over the backing, and feel free to share more ideas or, new versions of these same licks until you find the one that you want.

I think that you can define the second part and practice it to make the harmonization sound tighter. What do you think?

And regarding the incomplete section, try different improvisations to see what happens... or you can play the same riff than the backing first, and then harmonize. Here you can find the backing tracks tabs: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Rival-Sons-Style/

Awesome contributions already - and it's so cool to see you in here Angel! 😊

I really felt the groove in this backing and recorded my take over it. I also recorded some playing tips in the end of the video. Everyone should give this collab a go! πŸ‘ŒπŸ½




Posted by: Gabriel Leopardi May 7 2019, 04:48 PM

Awesome video Kris!! You jam over this one is amazing, and those tips are very inspiring! I also think that your tone here is so tasty. What amp are you using in your Kemper preset?

I've asked this question before, and you always respond with a different amp model. However, you always sound good, and you always sound unique, and you always sound similar... That's a great thing... you have your own tone, and keeping the same vibe even when changing amps means that it's in your fingers. smile.gif

That's an interesting observation. I usually have a sound in my head which I am striving for, and I try to use different amp profiles to get there. So in a way the actual profile I am using maybe isn't that relevant since I often change powerful parameters to my liking - and thereby altering the sound quite a bit. I also tend to copy reverb/delays setting between rigs, and they color the sound quite a bit as I like to have them very audible when jamming - as it creates consistency between the different backings.

But other than that - yes it's probably in the fingers! 🀘🏼

That's very interesting! I think that it would be cool to see how you set your guitar tones in one of your Jam School series lesson.



Posted by: Todd Simpson May 11 2019, 08:55 PM

Killer solo and a great example of using FINGER PICKING as an addition to the pick. Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits uses finger picking in amazing ways as do many players. Great vid!

That's a great idea! It's such a wide topic I would have to think of where to start. Maybe some generic pointers to start off with.

Well spotted. And this is a great tool for when you want to go down in dynamics, I often find it easier to produce soft tones with my fingers rather than the pick.

Some tone matching lessons would be awesome, it's hard to practice because I only do much of it when finishing a REC lesson. That time is few and far between because of the practice hours to learn the playing part. Starting with a dry track, having isolated guitar examples, and a lesson like your recent REC response wpould be really useful in helping people learn how to use their own gear with fast iterations possible would make progress faster.

Cool, so maybe I could use a backing track that I plan to jam over as a starting point. I would show how to I tweak the sound to make it work over the backing. I just need to figure out how to make sure a lesson interesting.

Yes, this would really work! Showing exactly what you do when you decide to record a jam over a backing track. How is this process? What makes you decide to start with one amp or the other? Which are the parameters that you usually change?

These can be interesting series because each backing will suggest different settings and parameters.

I reviewed my vids and recorded some new ones. I have a day off tomorrow and I know what I want to submit, so I'll polish that solo a little bit more. It will make me feel better and there's still some time left smile.gif

I'm learning a lot by just watching myself playing too!

Maybe a score system like Rec points ?

Hi mate, thanks for your feedback!

Yes, I’m very curious to know the reasons. Any thoughts? πŸ€”

Seriously, I tried thinking about it but nothing comes to my mind, except they are not interested in it. Especially since the deadline can be moved if there's need.

Posted by: Todd Simpson May 28 2019, 12:25 AM

Interesting idea! Some sort of contest type thing is always fun, maybe each entry in a collab puts one in a raffle for a free month of gmc, or maybe some sort of prize thing (could be anything guitar related, e.g. say instructors fave strings/picks for students to try) and each solo is the ticket to entry?

Rendering out my video now. Very fun backing to play over!! Some folks may just not be ready to play in front of other folks. Some folks find post production a bit technical. I'm guessing folks have their reasons for not jumping in. It's a bit of a shame though as playing actual music is sorta the entire point of all this. Each time I work with one of these backings, it brings out licks that I didn't know I even had. I do hope more folks get bold and jump in and give it a whirl smile.gif

Posted by: Phil66 May 29 2019, 09:21 PM

I gave it a go this evening, quite fast for me, I'm away from Friday evening until Sunday, hopefully I'll get something to you tomorrow as the deadline is imminent.

As Gab knows I've had a bit of an injury, I can feel a lot of clicking from my sternum but the pain is bearable now which is why I could manage to get to play this evening.

BTW NGD!! Gus G LTD 200I created a "theme" which repeats and serves as a kind of chorus bit. Also book ended with the same shreddy bit that I started with early on to give it symmetry. Also focused on giving it's lots of vibrato. IMHO vibrato is shiznickle that makes a solo shine. Having note control and pitch control can really make a solo memorable. BOOT CAMP LICKS FEATURED:
I stuffed it with licks from Bootcamp. If you are in bootcamp, these are part of the program.

AWESOME!! Congrats on your new guitar Todd!! That's a beautiful guitar mate!! And your playing here is killer, I love it!!

It's nice to know that GMCers can find some of these licks at your Boot Camp. Is there a direct link to find them?

Thanks a lot!!

Posted by: Todd Simpson May 30 2019, 10:07 PM

Here are a few of them from Quick Licks which feature only one drill per quick lick.

(The link to each lesson is in the video info here is the link to all the quick licks http://bit.ly/quicklicksmasterthreadHere are a couple of examples


For anyone doing Bootcamp/Quick Licks I'm guessing they can recognize many of these licks from the work they have done with me so far. Anyone in the thread who is doing bootcamp/quick licks who can confirm this?
I also used one of the thematic licks from BLUE ON BLACK by Kenny Wayne Sheppard in the slow part. I always try to build a melodic section in my solos. It's what helps make a solo memorable. Once folks learn to shred a bit, they sometimes go overboard and just blaze the entire time. It's important to pull back to give speed it's context and to provide space for strong melodic elements imho. Otherwise, a solo is just a blur of notes. This is what often separates great players from good players. I notice it a lot in your playing actually. Where you create a melodic space that mirrors what is happening in the song itself, as in your work with CIRSE.

With this awesome backing track I had to have a go on this collab!

For the first one I wanted some high energy and for the second part I went for something more laid-back.

Hope it will be good for you.

What a great surprise mate!!! It's great to have you at GMC again and I'm so happy to see that you shared a take for this collab!

Nice to see you rocking over this backing track! Thanks a lot!! smile.gif

Ok guys! Last days to submit a take. I'll start mixing this one tomorrow. Any other take coming? smile.gif

Hey Gabe,
I just recorded something over a part of the backing track. Maybe you'll find some use for it.

Hello friends! I'd like to share this pre mix with you to know your thoughts before editing the video. I've worked hard trying to combine your takes in the best possible way (from my perspective).

I'll hear this one with fresh ears later as well to adjust details. Please let me know what you think!!!

Sounds good to me I say go for it! smile.gif

Posted by: Kristofer Dahl Jun 27 2019, 10:12 AM

Yes, let's go for this!

Posted by: Gabriel Leopardi Jun 27 2019, 02:08 PM

Great!! Thanks friends!! Working on the video! smile.gif

Posted by: Gabriel Leopardi Jun 27 2019, 10:22 PM

Uploading the vid!!! smile.gif

What about a yearly Compilation album of our best collabs by vote? We could release it digitally only to keep costs low. I'd be willing to pay for the first years release myself via CDbaby or something like it. These are just too good to keep to ourselves and could be great promo!Todd

Posted by: Gabriel Leopardi Jun 28 2019, 04:37 AM

That's a great idea Todd! We make many amazing songs each year.

Check out the final video for this one... from my opinion, it's a bomb!! Everybody has done a killer job. The level is outstanding guys!!

Thanks and congrats!!!! smile.gif
