> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Here is my take with and without backing. Three solos really. Structured almost as Verse/Chorus/Verse. Like any good song, a solo should have a Begining, Middle, and End and hopefully each spot is identifiable. I've tried to illustrate the sections by using different fx for the chorus solo than the two verse solos. Also, the chorus solo is more fluid to go over the slower section, where as the verse solos are more syncopated over the faster sections and linked more to the kick drum. In short, it's a mini lesson on harmonic construction smile.gif I tried to not teach and just play but I couldn't help myself. It was just to perfect of a backing to pass up for this!

Here is my take (:

Guitar + backing track -> Attached File  Cosmin_Collab.mp3 ( 1.05MB ) Number of downloads: 77


Guitar only -> Attached File  Cosmin_Collab_WBT.mp3 ( 1.04MB ) Number of downloads: 56


Ibanez SV5470f -> Boss ME70 -> Lexicon Alpha -> Audacity.

I know the sound sucks but hopefully you can make it better using EQ /=

P.S. I'm attaching the "Psycho Synthetic" custom guitar rig patch I used to get the wacky keyboard sounding guitar thing. Not for everything, but handy for a unique tone.

Todd here smile.gif I just completed the video for my take. Sorry for the lag. As usual I spent far too much time creating layers and messing with fx. I wanted a Quasi 80's blown out look for this one. E I'm going to use some of the lick from my Solo Take in this Weekends lesson about Solo Construction. BIG thanks to Cosmin for letting the Vid Chat Lesson use his backing. YOU RAWK! Enjoy!



Here is the DOWNLOAD LINK TO THE VIDEO smile.gif

Can't wait to see how it turns out smile.gif My takes seem to run long and usually get cut up in to little, tiny, micro snippets in the final collab video, but I guess that's what happens to everyones otherwise the videos would be 20 minutes long smile.gif Still, I'm really looking forward to your final edit. Great backing and great solos from everybody!


Todd
