Seems like a descent take with the exception of being out of tune and the tone. I haven’t done this lesson so I will leave the other comments up to Daniel.

George Lynch is a great guitar player to study. One thing about his playing is the passion he puts into it. The 80’s were all about attitude my friend. The pinch harmonics, vibrato and picking dynamic (he is very confident and aggressive) that he uses imho are what add to his uniqueness.

I’ll leave you with a cool video link to illustrate my point. Here he does a jam over a Hendrix tune with no flashy gear and it still sounds like him. Watch how he takes pentatonic shapes and sexes it up.

EDIT: Video removed by UncleSkillet

You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Vaialation1232 I sure hope I didn't come across negative. ohmy.gif That isn't the message I wanted to get across and if that is how you took it I am sorry. Why take it down?? As far as the lesson goes I said it seems that you did it just fine. smile.gif

I just tried to point you in a direction of George Lynch so you could study his playing if you were interested.

Sorry man

Put your take back up man. I'm sure Daniel will love it. smile.gif I too was only trying to introduce George as you said you had not listened to Dokken.

This is your thread and your take, maybe the inserted vid's took away from that and I'm sorry. I'll remove them now but please, put yours back up for comment. smile.gif Keep rocking bro!

Do you know of a way to use the webcam's mic in Logic? cause yeah that would solve a lot of my problems as half the time i forget to turn the computer volume down and have to do takes over again..

Also, any Lynch songs you think i should check out?
Thanks



Edit-Daniel is new i think, so his teaching page isn't set up and i couldn't find a way to contact him...does he have an email?

Really sorry i missed this thread i was MIA due to technical difficulties for awhile.


If you need the backing track, i don't have it on my comp anymore. But i could re-record it for you if you need it.


Wish i had heard it when you fist posted.

If there is something specific you need help with on the lesson send me a PM or post here.

Lynch's sound as a whole relies greatly on George's fingers, i can't say i know of any guitarist who matches his tone.

George doesnt play with alot of gain its just about 12 o-clock, he relies on alot of reverb and delay to get the bite he wants without the sound getting really hissy. Another signature of his sound is a subtle flange, the swell rate and level are really low and slow. So it doesnt cycle very fast or intrude on the tone too much.

For me personally when i recorded the lesson, i am using a GNX3 and i am using one of the hyper models that mash two different amp types together. In this case a Rectifer and Vox AC30 about 60%, 40% respectively.

Another key ingredient to playing with a similar tone to Lynch is pick attack, he likes to pinch the strings really hard so the pick digs into the string. He does it in such a way so it doesnt get the pinch harmonic, but its a similar hand gesture when striking the string. It tends to make the string tone get more of an "Aohh" type sound when you do this. Experiment with varying your pick attack and see what i mean, you can actually change your tone drastically by attacking the string with various intensities and pick angle.

Alright, thanks a lot!

OH, flange! I knew i noticed something, but i wasn't sure what it was and i only have a phaser to try and that didn't sound right. will take the gain into consideration as well as the pick attack *although can't picture the Aohh sound biggrin.gif but i think i knew what you mean...i need new strings but probably this week ill have a new take up...weekend at latest!

Daniel Robinson..

I have been a Lynch fan for over 20 years and I think you nailed his tone on your style video. However, there are only two such videos on the entire site. It would be nice to have a few more Lynch videos on the site as well as maybe a few Lynch cover songs. I wish someone would take a listen to Lynch's new Lynch Mob album 'Smoke and Mirrors' and perhaps use one of those songs in a lesson. It is an incredible album and would be refreshing to have his new stuff instead of the old Dokken stuff that has been done millions of times.
