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

Sounds great! Do you know a free video editing software? If yes, I can make a video here. smile.gif I´m looking forward to learning this new lesson, I love it. What about the pentatonic takes?

But now, I´m going to a drummer friend. smile.gif See you!

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

Ok, I´ll do it. I´m still not sure about the groove. Maybe you can explain me this when you´re in the chat? smile.gif



About Movie Maker: I just realized that I won´t need it because today´s my last day at my father´s. laugh.gif Tomorrow, I`ll be at my mother´s and then from Friday to Sunday at my sister´s.

I'll explain it to you here in MTP when the time comes,
that's pretty advanced field. smile.gif

Could I have the backing for the blues lesson, please? smile.gif

Just another quick question: How do you slow down or speed up the backing track so that it doesn´t loose its quality? I see BTs at 180 bpm and then the same at 100, 80, 60,... . When I do it in Reaper it becomes so unclean and delayed. huh.gif

Yeah, trick is to work in Midi with VSTs, not with audio files,
Midi has no problems with stretching while audio does,
you just change tempo in DAW and export it without any problems.
There are some cool programs for audio stretching like Ableton Live
but even with Ableton you can go like 20-30% of speed down tops,
if you try more you'll probably hear "clicking".
However this "clicking" only appears
when you slow it down, not when you speed it up.

Here's the backing. smile.gif

Hey Muris! I´m back! Happy Easter, btw. smile.gif

I just recorded a video of the Luke Solo:


I´ll do some other ones later.

Another topic. Can you give me some exercices for arranging/composing a song? At first maybe, I could do a BT in a style. Don´t know. Just an idea. smile.gif

Happy Easter Tolek and nice take tho, sounds much more mature,
let me know when you post another one!

As for arranging/composing exercises I guess
I might give you few suggestions after I hear piece of music you posted,
give me some time. smile.gif

Thanks. I still think that I can add some more vibrato at some places. Will do a better take. smile.gif

OK, I´m looking forward to the exercices.

Btw, I have troubles with ascending runs in the pentatonic lesson. Descending runs work fine, but the others don´t. Any tips?

Focus more on ascending runs then,
it's all I can say before I "see" you playing. smile.gif

You've been busy Tolek, very well!

Luke's thing is going nicely
so you might leave it for a while,
tho you can continue jamming over it if you want
and post some new clips if something new
comes on your mind. wink.gif

As for Pentatonic Substitution,
I see you're having problems with faster runs
but what concerns me is that you are not using
pure Alternate Picking,
maybe it's too small FPS or you do some economy or som??
All in all, play the same thing (even without backing) VERY SLOW,
pick every note loud and clear, good thing is to play unplugged too
so you could really hear if you pick each note equally hard.
Give it a shot, might help!

And Blues Bending was very good too,
you missed to use index on 2 semi tone bends on G string,
you used middle finger instead but nothing major.
Now it would be cool to lay a solo on same BT
using some bends etc, what do you think? smile.gif

Sounds great! I´ll start practising the pentatonic lesson very slowly and play a new solo over the Blues BT. smile.gif

BTW, I start learning Blue Note in A. I want to play it at a "talent search". laugh.gif And Turkish March as well.

Oh, and I´m using straight AP in those runs.

Give us the credits and rock the house!! biggrin.gif

Looking forward to new takes,
specially pentatonic Substitution with cleaned runs,
let me know if I can help more. smile.gif

Sure. biggrin.gif

One question concerning the pentatonic runs. Should I accentuate the note of every beat or play them in the same volume as the others?

Good question, in order to keep tight rhythmic
I guess accenting 1st of each 4 won't hurt,
actually we do that kind of thing naturally.
Just try to play OTHER notes equally if possible. smile.gif
