Wao Emir, you managed to come quite far today .. ohmy.gif

Thanks a lot for your nice comments smile.gif. I'm really happy that you liked and could follow my idea of the structure. As my guitar playing is not extremely technical, i try to focus a bit more on structure and development within a solo. I'm often not sure if the listener will understand what i have had in mind. Thank you for you comments about this smile.gif

Yes, you are right. The faster part has to be more on time. Problem is, my picking is a bit underdeveloped, so i use a lot of legato when parts are getting too fast for me. Picking helps to accent notes and nail them down to the beat smile.gif. The technic you explained in another video to tab out faster parts to be aware of each note is helping a lot as well to archive this one day. Will work on this a lot ..

As said earlier, recording technics i want to improve. To have send two separated tracks for clean and gain sound is a good advice and makes completely sense.

Thank you Emir for your effort and time. I love you style of playing, so it means a lot to get some feedback from you smile.gif

Thank you guys smile.gif Yes, safety equipment is becoming necessary smile.gif One more to go and we can have a chat in about 30 min if you guys like to talk about anything.

Edit: for Kaznie

Sorry I forgot to say in the video about the guitar sound. You asked to tell you about that. I think this one is doing a good job. 10% less drive and that's almost how it should be.

It works! smile.gif

Thank you very much Emir. It's really cool to get personal feedback from a player of your caliber. Looking forward to the next one and I will do my very best to improve! I also liked the fact that you kind of extended my solo when you couldn't stop yourself from playing biggrin.gif haha.

Great video Emir! I need to go to bed now, but I've seen already half of it! It's cool to hear I use some tools, which I'm not even conciously using tongue.gif You know what I mean? For example using passing notes, they've kinda slipped in after learning where they were and now I use them without really thinking about em anymore tongue.gif About just playing a year... well I can tell you playing for a year about 1 hour a day is a lot better then 6 hours on one day and then six days nothing tongue.gif

Thanks Emir!

little edit: you have a very nice aural quality! You can just hear what I play and then reproduce, that's cool wink.gif

The track is not going to be a ballad that's all I said but still everyone is welcome. It will be faster but doesn't mean that you have to play fast smile.gif I will give some tips about how you can play it and you can take it from there.

Great smile.gif Sorry for playing over your take. Just 2 sec of break helped me to continue talking hahah

Thank you Kaznie smile.gif I thought that Eb note might have slipped but it worked there hahaha. You shouldn't have told me this that you actually didn't wanna play it smile.gif But now you have a tip for that.

About aural skills, yes I can instantly play some stuff, you will get there soon mate smile.gif

Thanks Emir. All you say is true and I actually started learning from the first vid.

I do not know much about music, so yes, following the progression is definate in need of attention.

Thanks again. mellow.gif

No problem smile.gif I am always available to help especialy for guitarists like you that are just starting. You can write anytime if you need help. My advice is to learn these things in order:

1. Major and minor pentatonic scales in all 5 positions
2. 7 Modes od major scale in all positions
3. Chords of all 7 major scale modes

After this start with technique development and use of all above. Start with alternate picking then legato (hamer ons and pull offs). After you can explore arpeggios, tapping... It's a long journey, probably about 2 years until you get to the point that you can continue yourself. Make sure you spend 2 hours a day for serious practicing and you can make it for sure smile.gif

This thread is already bookmarked for me. I watched about 20 of the vids and they're so inspirational! I love how you develop a participant's solo and come up with something obvious but new! smile.gif

I know it's been a terrific (and almost lethal) job but I hope it was also a great experience for you too!

I really hope I'll be able to keep up for this standard of your collabs in the future! ohmy.gif

cheers

Thank you Emir, when I'll look back in the future I'll remember this collab as the only one till this very day, that had a powerful impact on me so that it nearly smashed me to the ground and as a turning point in my music life. I really appreciate that.

You rock bro!

Cheers smile.gif

I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say: Thanks so much for putting in so much time and energy (and quite literally almost blood!) into this collab, we've all recieved first class advice at no expense. I have a lot of respect for your work here and this says great things about your character. You are obviously a very hard working guy with a lot of compasion towards others.

Many Thanks!

Thanks a lot for your comments Emir , they are a true inspiration for keep practicing and improving every day. I have watched all the videos and I must that I have learned something from each one.

Regarding my solo , on the a minor arpeggio with the F note , I don't it sounded to me like it was a better anticipation to the dimished arpeggios , but playing the again it souns better as you said. And after the diminished arpeggios , I wanted to end on the A note but I felt like it was boring , maybe finishing on the minord third with a bend could sounded better right?

On the last lick I tried to play the E7 arpeggio but I just couldn't play it properly and nice wiith the backing , so I went with the easier choice. I'm starting to practice arpeggios from today.

I second tolek on his question , how can I improve my vibrato? Im really obssesed with this, an I really want to improve it.

Thanks for taking the time to give us such a cool and detailed feedback to all of us.

I'll be on all of your collabs.

Thanks again.

P.D Emir for president!

Thanks Berko. Yes it was a new and a great experience for me as well. To be honest I didn't know it will turn into this kind of in depth analysis. I just thought it would be easier to film it than to type text and when I started with the first 2-3 videos I realized this is going to be 4-5 days of hard work smile.gif I didn't have any special agreement with GMC about this and still don't know if I am going to be rewarded acording to the tme spent for this. I did it on my own inititative without thinking of how many days I need. However I think you guys can benefint much more from this than reading text and for me that's more important than any money. You are doing a great job on the gutar mate smile.gif


QUOTE (Tolek @ Feb 1 2009, 11:56 PM) *
Oh, Emir! I forgot to ask something. What would you suggest to improve my vibrato?


Play slow solos and try to vibrate long notes in tempo. Notes are usualy vibrated in 8th note duration relative to the tempo. Make it consistent. On the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th string it is easier to vibrate towards the 2nd string (down movement). On the 1st and 2nd string you can push up. Try with every finger. The easiest is with the 3rd finger but press with all 1st, 2nd and 3rd finger (like for a bend) so you have more grip on the neck. Malmsteen has great vibrato. Watch some slower solos on youtube like "Black Star" or solo from "Save Our Love". If you look at some other videos from yesterday I showed that technique to some guys.

Cheers man. You are a very good player. You don't really have problems with playing. The only thing I noticed is if you can develop your lines with some more logical approach. Always see if there is a more interesting way for positioninig notes within the melodic line. If you want those horizontal arpeggios, I have my very frist lesson on GMC about that, It's in 15 fps, I was still learning how to film the lesson properly, but you can pick that cool way of playing them horizontaly.
