This looks pretty good to me Steve. Nice job smile.gif Great way to spend your afternoon.
Like you said, just tighten up a few parts and work on a wider vibrato.

REC it up bro! wink.gif

OK, lets go with this. It goes along with the comments you got with your last REC upload.

So since we're jamming in drop you are going to use you Les Paul, right?

This lesson is really going to help tighten up your rhythm (timing). Look at your last video upload (for the REC). You would look back and forth at your right and left hand and you were not as comfortable as you should be with your hands. Trust yourself and if you are going to look at something then just make it your left hand. Never look at what you right hand is doing with this lessons upload. Also pay attention to the vibrato, ok. smile.gif

I'm happy to give more comments on uploads. The dog sitter backed out so I will be home on vacation this week while my family is gone. Got to work on my own playing issues so holler back if you need me.

Your doing great Steve smile.gif


PS: I like this format better. You pick the things you feel you would like to work on (lessons) and I'll help to keep you on track with your own style and development.

I like it too man! smile.gif Unfortunately, can't use the LP, sold it a while back. Just didn't like the way the fret's felt on the 2000 model. They are machined. On the 3000's and up, they are hand ground. I've dropped my tiger stripe down.. cool.gif

I'm tone searching atm and wanted to see what your thoughts were on this tone....

Sounds pretty close to me. Hard to tell without hearing it blend with the backing. Watch the Bass. If I had to make a guess about any adjustments it would be to back the bass off some and raise the mids up a little. That would give you a clearer, punchier crunch that might blend better imo. smile.gif

Man, 1st day on vacation and I got to tell you Steve it is freaking me out how quite it is around here. Spooky wacko.gif
I'm not sure why I feel guilty about just laying around with the dogs and watching TV today. Oh well, maybe a beer will help smile.gif

Hate you had to miss your vacation with your family man. Yeah, I feel the same way when I have the house to myself which is not that often. I'm sure your missing them already.

Look at it this way, definitely time to sit down with the strings and have some fun! smile.gif

Thanks for asking me to comment Jeff. smile.gif

Overall, your playing is tight but the thing that stood at to me the most was vibrato was not clear in some spots. I don't think that it was you, I think it was more the tone. Don't get me wrong, I like it, I just think it needs a little more work with EQ to get it more defined so you can hear everything more clearly.

Do this for me, open your FX chain on the lead track. Select ReaEQ (cockos) for EQ setting. Then click the "preset setting" and try each of them. I personally like the "wide female vocal" setting. I also like the "mud free" setting for some tracks. I think you can make this tone a bit better, ( it's already good ) but play around some more with it. The mid's seem to be a little high for my liking but your always telling me to add more... tongue.gif

Try some of the settings I mentioned and find one you like then duplicate the track and pan...You know the drill. wink.gif I would even add a third and center it and see how fat it sounds.

I have backed off of bumping a track to get a stereo field and started using Loser/stereo enhancer and adjusting the width to my liking. Seems to sound a bit better to my ears after the render process.

I love what you have so far man and can't wait to hear the final! smile.gif

Alright Steve an Monte, here is another mix, still the same crappy licks that need to be tightened up but I'll get it.

Is this EQ any better Steve?

Cheers guys smile.gif cool.gif
