Here´s a new take of the Luke lesson, this time with a much better tone. smile.gif




By the way, I´m currently listening to "Drunk Funk" and I fell in love with that masterpiece. biggrin.gif Due to this, I added to the "My Goals" list: play jazz. smile.gif I love jazz and tried it once and learnt chords, scales, arpeggios, some rules,... . Could you give me some advice how to develop in that fantastic style, please?

It was much better Tolek,
tone and also timing!! smile.gif

There are small issues after tapping notes
but you'll get it done after more practicing,
those timings are bit tricky indeed,
you could try to pay more attention to GP file
to get those timings nicely, just an idea.

Now, one thing I would like to point at is vibrato,
you're holding your hand way too much in a "classical" shape
so you don't have good and solid stand for powerful vibrato,
how about trying to wrap your thumb more around the neck? smile.gif

Ok, good idea. I´ll try that and record another take then.

I just tried out that new position and it feels very uncomfortable and strange. However, I´ll try to get used to that to get a better vibrato as you said. smile.gif


What about that jazz thing? biggrin.gif

I know it's probably uncomfortable atm since you've
been doing it in "classical" way for a long time.
But it'll work fine for you, do some practicing and playing
like that until you get used to it, shouldn't take long. smile.gif

As for Jazz, we might try diving there right now
bit imo it'd be wise to stay a little bit longer on diatonic stuff,
once we get that nicely we can start working on Jazz,
after all, Jazz isn't just a style, it's a final step. smile.gif

Sure, that´s normal. smile.gif I never knew that it´s better to grab the neck more in order to get a better vibrato. I tried it out and yes, I can hear a difference. smile.gif

Oh, sure. I just remembered that you explained me that in Igalo. Let´s continue with diatonic stuff! smile.gif

Hell yeah, Luke is sounding a WAY better,
vibrato is growing nicely and you nailed that tricky
timing part after tapping almost 100%, which isn't easy! smile.gif

And sound for Knopfler was very cool imo, no need to worry about it at all.
There was some problems with timing, perhaps you need
few more listens to my take to "remember" how it should sound.
Also try not to apply much power in picking when playing
those slower licks, whole Idea with Mark is small or none drive
with lots of Dynamics.
Can I ask for one more take but with just a little bit slower backing,
like you did with Luke?

And for a home work, take Luke backing original tempo
and do some solo over it, use any kind of sound you want
and compose us a nice melodic solo with sweet lick.
How about that? smile.gif

I was talking about vibrato and after tapping part only,
I know some spots were bit sloppy but you'll fix that anyhow. wink.gif

Finally, I had a liitle bit of time and the power to record something. Here´s my own solo over the Luke BT.



The ending was not correct in rhythm.

That was nice jamming Tolek, well done! smile.gif

There were some tapping licks and legato one near the beginning
that didn't come out clean enough tho,
so I'm asking for another take when you get some free time
but try to keep it clean, you don't have to shred at all
but go for clean phrases with lots of melody,
think of vibrato as well which is getting better btw. wink.gif

And for Knopfler lesson, we might try another take
with better timing, it was kind a off on slower parts so you
missed the groove a bit.
You did learned notes nicely and now it's all about
your reproduction of the piece. smile.gif

Finally, here is the newest Knopfler take. This time without video (sorry sad.gif ) because my father hasn´t got a video editor. When I´ll be back home, I´ll try to do a video. smile.gif This take is slower than the original (3/4 of it). Some licks aren´t clean yet.

The new Luke solo is going to come soon, I think. smile.gif

Timing was much better this time Tolek, well done!
Still, you slowed it too much so you could try something
just a bit faster, we lost the groove somehow. biggrin.gif

Looking forward to new Luke take! smile.gif
