And this is really getting on my confidence since im about to change strings on my new guitar for the first time, will it sound rubbish to you know..

Well i took it to the tech and they couldnt guarantee a setup would fix it, instead they tought it was the tone control so I got it fixed on warranty but it wasnt that

Pffff- mate, this is difficult to figure out for me, because I can't see the guitar and I have no clue on what could be wrong with it... sad.gif Anybody else on the forum might have encountered a similar issue maybe?

Yes I know
I will have it setup after the winter.
But praticing is going good, I feel really motivated.
Its just when it comes to drop tuning I feel a little less motivated cause of the guitar.
But no worries, I can still pratice and it doesnt sound that bad, so now I will start working on your drop C lesson too.

Hey hey smile.gif Well, give it time and after fixing the axe, things will get into place - but how about the Remarcoble riff? smile.gif I'm curious to hear that recording at slow tempo with the metronome on?

No matter smile.gif I am interested in the tightness and timing of your recording against the metronome smile.gif

Here is some riffing.
120 BPM then 135. Original is 158.
I made an "honest" take, I was already warmed up so just picked up the guitar and now I post the first time recordings.

Well as earlier mentioned I just cannot do the picking variation that is 2 times in the intro.
Its not problem doing it just like that, but to do it in the song doesnt work out!
That happens kind of often, a lick you can do easy, but not put into a song togheter with other licks.

Guitar sounded better today, tell me what you think about the guitar sound too

Hey mate smile.gif

Well, I think you have to work a lot more on this as the timing doesn't seem to be perfect at neither tempo and some of the parts are kind of blurry. I want to be honest with you man - if you can't play a lick in a musical context, it's like you can't play it at all...

Please try to record yourself at slower tempos - regardless of how slow and play everything in the riff in perfect timing and tight as a knot!

Post recordings more often, do it here! smile.gif And stay focused, k? The tone isn't bad at all, it's just that you need to control the strings in order to avoid the unwanted noise.

Cosmin

I agree with you cosmin. There are no shortcuts to mastering that riff. Its a very cool heavy riff that you want to play, and that makes you rush it.

Well soon im going to start to work on my new song.
Well its not going to be a typical song structure of it, what do you think of that?
By that, Im not going to write a typical metal song that has intro,verse,pre chorus, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, outro in that order you know.

The melodic lead playing will consist of both rythm and solo playing

I think it's a very good idea smile.gif I got a student in Romania who does this a lot - check out his stuff. His main issue is that his head is WAAAAY over his hands - by that, I mean that he hears wonderful music inside his head that his hands cannot yet play and this is what I am working on with him - helping him hone his skills so that he can play what he hears in his head:

It still needs work if you are to ask me - those riffs should be tighter, BUT, it's in the making still smile.gif

on sunday i will be recording my song so thats what im dealing with now.
Also both my guitar work well so after that I will get back to praticing!

Only one question.
Well I was working a little on my next song and when recording metal drums which I have never done before.
I noticed u got for example 4/4 signature.
Then u within in that metal 1/2, 1/4 1/8 backbeat stuff and so on.

Well if you set the tempo and u have the same time signature, well It shouldnt matter what note values the drums play?

Hey Erik, if I understand correctly, you want to set a certain tempo and a time signature and variate the note values within this context, right? That is possible and it the pulses you will get will create a wide range of dynamics within a song. My suggestion though is to adapt the drums to the riffs you come up with first and see what you get wink.gif
