Hey GMC Instructors! I noticed there was a ton of in the style lessons here. I was wondering how can you match other artists playing? Like, do you use the same techniques they use repititively...but many artists use the same techniques so this also confuses me.

I guess what I am asking is how do copy somebodyelses style?

The best way to get someones style is the copy his tone, licks, dynamics and phrasing. Listen closely to the songs of the artist and look for things that are unique fro that artist, so you can learn that.

No problemo mate smile.gif

When I want to do in the style of lesson, I first check what gear the artist uses, and check out often used licks and techniques, and then I learn them. I use modeling software to create the sound similar to what I hear, using gear that artist uses as a guideline.

Ivan already mentioned some things about gear and licks.

I would generally listen to at least 10 tracks and try to figure out most common patterns. It might be harmony that repeats, maybe same trademark licks that keep happening etc.
For Eddie V H it would be harmonics (natural ones) as well as tapped harmonics + legato with tapping (maybe open strings included) and mutted riffs with fill ins.

Hope this short analysis helped you !

I agree with the others, if you want to copy somebodys style you of course first have to analyze it to see what this person is using to create this individual style. Many things can play a role here, take a look at the equipment (if you want to get a Blackmore/Malmsteen like tone you should use a strat and Marshalls for example, not a Rectifier and Les Paul), you should take a look at things like tuning (Is the person using standard tunings, droped tunings, open tunings...), picking techniques (constant downpicking like Metallica, tapping like Van Halen, faster than the speed of light playing as Yngwie...), are there typical scales that the person is using to create certain atmospheres? Only if you pay attention to all those things you will really be able to play in the style of somebody else.

I bet what would also help is learning some of the actual songs from that artist.
