Hy muris

This is my take on your awesome lesson. My vibrato isn't strong enough yet so i know i have to practive that some more. And i din't do the bend on the 22th fret cause i already broke 2 sets of string doing that so i thought i'd skip it for now biggrin.gif . Apart from that, i think it's pretty decent. i would appreciate any feedback you can give me

pretty cool, Something up with the tone, it could use a little reverb! Also, work on the vibrato a bit. <--- You knew that, sorry for mentioning. The tapping sound's cool:D One string might be out of tune on the D chord, might be the E or B. Also some inaccurate bends. But for the rest sounds really good. And remember, it's only constructive, not personal. I like this lesson too, you do it better than me with the tapping.

I think mostly this happens because it is not real obvious that this is not in the common domain, unless one looks at the fine print, I did not realize it until I saw that you mentioned it. I expect it was the same with jesse. Maybe they should do something different, like make some color or something that kicks people in the face.

Sorry to hear about all those strings, perhaps
saddle on bridge is too sharp??

Nice take tho,there was some timing lacking,
specially at beginning and slower parts,
tapping was pretty nice and legato run too.
Play early beginning few times,
make it sound more powerful and "on the beat",
there is some room for improvement regarding vibrato just as you said,
and yeah, tune your guitar a bit. smile.gif

Sounds great. You pulled off those tapping harmonics nicely smile.gif
I don't think I can add anything that hasn't already been said. I totally agree with adding a bit of reverb

Thanks muris for the feedback

I can hear now that the rhytem section in the beginning has to be tighter to the backing track

also, i found out that my b string has a bad intonation. That might be the reason why the d chord at the beginning din't sound good. Also could be the reason why some of my bends are out of tune. I fixed it now

I addit some reverb to my tone and i think i sounds a lot better now. Also i noticed that i was doing my vibrato with my index, middle and ring finger on the string. this works great when bending but i found out that if i only use my middle and index do to vibrato and use the index finger for support (i think that's the way you do it), it sounds a lot clearer and ofcourse use the wrist while i'm doing vibrate. I'll post a second take in a coulple of days.


To jesse

I never take constructive criticism personally. I apreciate you taking time to give me feedback. And yes, thanks to you i found out that my b string had bad intonation so i'm gonna fix that now. thanks for the reply!
