Hey Muris, sorry for not posting in a while. You know I didn't forget about this but had other things going on. smile.gif

I will get back to the lesson plain soon (after I get the skin on my finger tips tuff gain). tongue.gif laugh.gif

I wanted to work on this so here is where I'm at after a few hours. I have an idea on what needs improvement but would like your thoughts if you have a minute. Licks need cleaned up for sure. This is as close as I could get to a good Tube sound with the Line 6 UX1 and a Strat. I find myself with these stock pickups (Low output, stock) playing (picking) harder then I should and my right hand gets tight (not relaxed like it should). The Notes don't come off clean and articulate. I'm not a Pro yet and not sure if I will ever be. But I'm having fun. cool.gif

Thanks for your comments and Cheers,

Skillet

Hey Jeff, great to hear from you in MTP, it's been a while indeed! smile.gif

Good job with this Satch's tune,
you really have a nice feel for it and tone was sweet as well,
perhaps those low output stock pickups are causing you troubles for picking
but from what I hear it blend the backing very nicely!

Now, there are some sloppy parts, mainly faster legato runs.
They are sloppy but not because of your bad technique,
it's pretty only only because you still haven't figured out HOW to play those licks,
what's picked and what's legato.
Break those licks down, play them very slowly and track down every single note,
you seem to picked few notes eventho you had played them with legato already,
no need for that, that makes them to sound sloppy, nothing else.

Good work indeed, I like it very much,
do some polishing with those legato licks
and it'll be top notch. smile.gif

Hey thanks Muris for your quick response. I'll clean up those Legato runs and get the rest of the song worked out. I think I'm trying to hard when I play those licks and not letting the notes just happen (I'm picking to much and rushing. I need to let the Legato flow). Your comments are spot on as usual.

My goal when I'm finished with this is to have one thing uploaded to Youtube that I can really be proud of and others may enjoy watching and learning from.

Muris my friend, how are you?

I have decided with the new MTP format and the great responses (applications) from all the wonderful GMC students to step back and make my spot available for another student.

I just can’t seem to find the time to really take advantage of this opportunity at this point in my life and your talent needs to be shared. Taking this opportunity away from someone who is ready to work hard and learn isn’t right and it makes me feel bad. I’ll work on changing things and freeing up time (as I have been) but for now there’s someone that can use your great advice and wisdom. Right now I need to focus on being a husband, father and a provider for my family. This is just a fun hobby for me anyway. At some point I would like to come back and I hope you will consider me as a student when that time comes.

You have been very encouraging, helpful and always available when I needed you or had a question. I know what I need to work on for now so I’ll be fine. smile.gif

Thanks for everything,

Well thank you Jeff, that's very kind. smile.gif

I'm aware of your current situation tho,
you take your time and do what you have to do,
I hope soon enough things will get better and you'll have
more time your playing and enjoying guitar.
It was a pleasure to work with you indeed,
my MTP will hopefully run for a while
and as far as I'm concerned you're ALWAYS welcome!

All the best, stay safe and ofc see you around the forum. smile.gif
