Hi GMCers, it's time for a new challenge!

GUESS THE TONE CHALLENGE


Description : Time to get creative with your tone shaping skills. We will supply you with a backing track, tabs and dry guitar track of instructor Adrian's brand new unpublished lesson!

Rules : All you have to do is practice the lesson and record an audio and/or video of your playing along the backing track and post it in this thread. We want you to get creative with the guitar tone you will be using for this. Is it clean, heavy distorted or with chorus/delay effect? It is up to you. Once the challenge is over - we will publish the lesson and you'll see how close you've got.
It doesn't matter how well you play the lesson rather which tone you choose!

Supplied material :

- Backing track 90 BPM : Attached File  90.mp3 ( 4.13MB ) Number of downloads: 245

- Guitar Pro tab : Attached File  Guess_The_Tone.gp5 ( 6.29K ) Number of downloads: 133

- Text tab : Attached File  Guest_The_Tone.txt ( 8.82K ) Number of downloads: 167

- Dry guitar track (as reference for nailing the solo) : Attached File  dry_guitar_track.mp3 ( 4.28MB ) Number of downloads: 201


Deadline : 25th of September

THE PRIZE : Private Skype session with Adrian!

Discuss various gear/tone shaping subjects - live.

My god...I'm not even close to being able to play that. Too technical for me at this point. I could do the main notes...but the accent notes and muted notes on other strings is above me right now.

Hey dude, well, it isn´t as tricky as you may think, it is pretty simple in fact, if you need help i can help you, or did i made it too complex?, i tried to make it just using a few notes, and put more emphasis on the tone part of the song, but i could understand that the tablature is scary, did you heard the dry track i recorded?

i will be today on the chat at 10pm GMT, i will ne giving tips on how to play this song smile.gif

How the heck do you play an open string, while also picking a different string? I get it when it's a powerchord...but with string skipping, I'm lost. Do you fingerpick it?

Know what would make this even better?? Backing tracks at different tempos! Add a COMPLETELY different feel to the solo!

One more thing....Is this standard tuning?


I have to say...even though I suck at playing it, I think I have a pretty cool tone going!

Still working on it. I almost have the tone where I like it, still have a LOT of work to do in nailing the song though!
