Here´s the faster version of the Knopfler lesson. Still some troubles with the fast pentatonic run. smile.gif


Much better Tolek!!

No need to worry about fast run tho,
it'll come with time and more practicing,
what would I like to hear more from you
is more vibrato on longer notes and better articulation on same notes,
each note has its own purpose, specially in Knopfler's world,
give them what they deserve.
So think of that no matter what you're playing,
faster runs are ok but those runs don't mean a lot
if you fail to present slower parts nicely, right? smile.gif

Damn that was cute Tolek!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahhhhh, now I DEMAND to hear same solo, same notes,
just add more vibrato, you can't say no,
would be shame to leave this sweet piece just like that!!!!!! smile.gif

You´re funny. laugh.gif Aye, master, I´ll do another take tomorrow. smile.gif


I think I´m ready for a new assignment, don´t you think so? Of course, I´ll still practise the current lessons, but as I have time now, I can practise even more!
BTW, I started today your first lesson on GMC: Pentatonic Substitution. I got it down at half speed and can play it faster and faster. smile.gif

Just watch out on timing, you played pretty BEFORE the track,
maybe because you slowed it a lot,
looking forward to next take! smile.gif

Really? I didn´t notice any big timing issues. huh.gif Where do you mean exactly?



BTW, I just listened to the "Happy Head" solo that you did for Monte. That sounds so great and you just played without big thinking. Can´t believe it. How do you do it? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Those are not timing issues that jump out,
it's more like playing in a hurry, out of groove,
hard to notice at high speeds but
not so hard at slow tempos.
Playing in groove is another important topic we will discuss later on. smile.gif

Hard to explain but probably has something to do with my big head,
I upgraded it with extra 2 terabites lately. laugh.gif

Now I hear it a bit. It´s in the 16th slide part and in the triplets pentatonic runs, right?
Actually, I don´t know what it means to play in groove. laugh.gif

Two more takes. This time pentatonic lesson at 75 bpm and 90 bpm.

I hope that your sound card works as I can´t wait to hear critique and to correct my mistakes. biggrin.gif I´m in recording fever. laugh.gif

Knopfler is much better Tolek,
there are still some timing issues but lets
have a rest for this one for a while,
you did very good job so far!

Luke was also better this time
but I still miss more vibrato in this sweet melody you've made.
I think we could work much more on vibrato at this point,
what do you think of playing the same thing with using
and focusing on vibrato 100%?
You can apply it on everything, regular notes and bended ones as well.
However it would be good to get a video of it,
that way I could see your posture when playing vibrato
and give some suggestions if needed.

Also, we can try working more intensely on bending,
here's one lesson that I've recommended for
almost every student in my MTP,
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...bending-lesson/ .

Again it would be great to have a video
but Mp3 is fine too until you get home. smile.gif



QUOTE (Tolek @ Apr 7 2009, 05:07 PM) *
Two more takes. This time pentatonic lesson at 75 bpm and 90 bpm.


Yeah, take at 90bpm was overally better IMO,
there were some sloppy parts over those faster runs,
Em Pentatonic,G Pentatonic and the last skipping part.
But timing was very good and tight compared with
75 bpm take, maybe you still have troubles
to fully understand what I'm saying but believe me,
slower is sometimes harder.
I truly hope that you'll get some recording session job
to do in near future and then you'll realize,
producer will ask for 100% timing and if tune
is in slower tempo you'll have more problems,
that's very common thing,trust me!

Lets try with 2 more takes, both speeds,
think more of timing for 75 bpm (tapping with your foot will help)
and eliminate that noise in faster runs at 90 bpm.
And one thing about your tone, you can try with less gain and reverb
this time for better articulation. smile.gif
