USING A REAL AMP TODAY!
*No patch to download today as I"m using a "Real" amp so we can talk about EQ briefly.



PICKING WHILE MUTED

Let's work on Alternate Picking and Palm Muting at the same time. This technique is a great way to demonstrate your picking control as it reduces unwanted noise. It's tough at first but gets easier quickly.

OVERLOUD TH2 PATCH FOR TODAY

*Notice the Parametric EQ at the START of the signal chain. Turn it on and off to see the impact of "Pre-Eq" on your tone.
*Also, this bank has 3 patches. Notice the impact of varying the microphone placement on tone between each patch.

WHY DOESN"T MY GUITAR SOUND LIKE YOURS WHEN I USE THAT PATCH?

I"m using a ProTone Bulb Deluxe Overdrive as a "Boost" pedal before going in to my recording interface. This allows enough signal to hit the Overloud sim. You can use ANY OVERDRIVE pedal for this purpose. The bulb is overkill, but I still love it. Here is a demo vid.





Also, I'm using a new pickup from Seymour Duncan called the "ALTERNATIVE 8" which is their first ever production pickup to use Alnico 8, magnets. Heres a video demo for this pickup.




TRICKY BITS OF PICKING AND MUTING

We have been working on leaving our hand planted on a palm mute while picking complex alternate/economic picking shapes. Let's work on this a bit more today.

COMBINING OPEN/CLOSED STRINGED AP RIFFS

Let's expand on our work from the past two sessions working on AP based guitar riffs and add open string patterns to our closed string work. This first shape should be familiar from our last session, so hopefully that part is review. It will be good as a warm up. We are just adding an open string modulation. Let's kill it!!!!
