Ok so I'm very lazy and I never practice any lessons here at GMC I only ever write songs when I pick up a guitar so I decided to practice this lesson as part of the competition that is currently on for the Beginner challenge. This is by no means perfect and I hope to perfect it before I record video live for the competition entrance.

A few points. The guitar pro tab that Carlos gives is different to what he plays and the backing track is longer than what he plays AND the guitar pro file lol so it seems to finish early but I'm positive I do the final run in the correct place. I know my bends are weak which is annoying but here goes. I did my best sad.gif

Any comments off anyone would be awesome smile.gif

Well, I guess that You don't mute other strings as he does ( for me it is magic:/ ) but still I say that You play it good. More self confidence OC;)

I'm looking forward to your take. I really am poor at muting strings. I learnt guitar idolising Kurt Cobain and he didn't do that sort of thing much and you don't need to do it much in grunge as it's a really raw garage feel.

I think it's very good, I don't think that what you claim to be as an guitarrist is true, you are good in your own way, you should believe that smile.gif

Was pretty good my friend smile.gif Your tone was OK, the only thing, that I would add to your sound was some reverb/delay and maybe a falling rain on the backing tongue.gif

Your playing was almost flawless (only instructors are flawless:P we are here to get better, 'aight?smile.gif), only thing, I would add was a bit more intense vibrato on some places.. then it would be the best smile.gif


But overally great wink.gif

Cheers man. How have you been lately anyway? Send us a PM to let us know how things are smile.gif

I do need to work on it for sure but like you said we are here to learn and improve on guitar. I hope I record more lessons in the near future as it shouldn't have took me a year to bother to learn one lesson lol smile.gif

I am very surprised for as you play with my song! Nothing is impossible!!

Cheers man. I really need to get my vibrato better. I am trying on the vibrato front and it's a good lesson to improve on this. It's a great lesson so hopefully I can improve on it and record a video smile.gif Cheers again.

this is one of the reasons i really love this site..
people here are so helpful, and supportive and where else can you get comments/guidelines from the actual instructors?

this rocks..


on topic: i dont think i can say anything that haven't already been said.. I think it is a very nice take..

I'd say: Keep recording what you do.. Great way to notice progress.. smile.gif

I think that sounds very good OC, tone is very good and smooth. Vibrato and bending is good, but with a couple of hours of focused practice it can be great sounding. ALso you played the whole piece cleanly and that is very important. Very good mate. smile.gif

Cheers smile.gif Hopefully I can master this for the video for the competition and then I will see if I can get the intermediate entrance done to a high standard.
