Thanks, I think I'm hooked on collabs, thats tons of fun I can't wait to hear the final mix and to do more. I have been working on the funk lesson, I am getting there but it's really kicking my butt. I'm still a ways from anything worth posting but part of me feels like I should be putting something up more often, I did ask about your acoustic lesson and then got kinda side tracked, I will still try to do a video for that. But is there a certain amount or certain things I should post for mentoring? I don't want to miss out on good critisism because I'm learning so slow. And also thanks for all your help so far this has been a great experience and I am learning so much here.

Well, if you can post at least one take of everything that you are working, every week, I could give you some feedback and maybe this can help you with the progress. Don't worry i you can't play the lesson perfectly, maybe some comments could make the learning process easier or faster.

Hey, here is some from the funk lesson. It feels like a mess!!!!! Today was about the first time playing with just the backing, and it felt a little better than trying to play along with the video. But I also have not gotten the last part, which is why there is a bit missing at the end. dry.gif

Hi mate! Well, you already learnt the notes, now it's time to incorporate more the groove of this lesson. I think that practicing it over the main video is a great idea to learnt better the rhythm of each part. Maybe you could also use the guitar pro file, which will allow you to play at slower tempos too.
You should also compare your right hand movement with Ivan's right hand, check out how he always start the movement from the wrist and the whole hand is much more relaxed and seems to be more "free".

Hey, I like the idea of playing with the guitar pro file, I have not tried that before. I see what you mean about the right hand, do you think it would be helpful to isolate just my right and maybe mute the strings with my left and just focus on my right hand and then try to add back in the left?

Hi mate! Thanks for your videos! I'm sure that the perfect takes day will come if you continue working hard as you are doing it now. The problem with your takes isn't the technique, your technique is ready to master them, the problem is your timing. Try to practice over the guitar pro file or over the main video to copy the rhythm of each lesson at the correct timing.

Thanks, this was very encouraging today. Are you learning any of the lessons here, what kinds of stuff do you practice?

Hi mate! I use to learn stuff from here every time that I have time to do it. This days I have been working on some new lessons and other cool things for the site as well as rehearsing and playing live with Cirse. Today I had a long day at the studio recording some Cirse's new songs. At the same time, I'm composing new songs so... my life is full of music but this is not a practice period.

We usually play once every weekend. That's a good average for a local band. We are now also recording a new 3 songs Ep and composing new material for a new album. smile.gif

Hey gab, I was messing around with the surf collab and this is my first attempt at something. I didn't get any videos posted this week but I discovered this video by Ivan ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18Kh2LB7K_Ek ) my entire guitar universe has been turned upside down. I downloaded reaper, and have been learning about Impulse reponses, guitar related vst plugins, how to mix, all of which I was unaware of a week ago. I also had to learn to use a noise gate. Hopefully my tone on this collab will improve significantly, I'm really excited to hear what you think. I do not however have very good speakers so I'm not sure my final sound is a true representation of what I hear. The best part is I don't have to adjust my take to the backing track due to latency, as my computer tells me I'm at about 5 ms the way I'm set up. So here is what I came up with tonight, not the most technical but I have some reverb, delay, and am running through 4 different cabinets panned differently, with slight delay. Sorry this was a little long winded.

Amazing!! That's a great desicion mate!! Using multitrack software, learning to mix, VSTi, and all those magic things will open you to a new Universe!! I'm so happy for you. smile.gif
The take sound cool! I like the tone, the only thing that I have to comment is that I would like to hear more defined and memorial melodies over that backing. Try to define your ideas a bit more and you will have a brilliant take! Think on it as a song, not as a solo.

Think of it as a song and not a solo.......You are wise wink.gif I will do that. And thanks the new software stuff is very exciting, just another thing I have learned from the short time I have been here.

I discovered today that somehow I have a settings conflict with reaper and my webcam, so until I resolve the conflict I only got a sound file for you this week.................I did spend extra time messing around pretending I know how to mix things all nice and neat. After I added my guitar I plugged the mix back in and added a compressor and eq and messed around with those and tried to get something to sound better than what I started with. And I have another take of what I am working on the surf rock collab. I think I have captured a little more melody and less solo smile.gif From here I am gonna experiment with some elaboration of the ideas and see if I can expand a little.

Hi mate! Thanks for the update and the takes! The funk lesson is getting better with days and practice, so you are on the right track. However you still need to concentrate and adjust the overall rhythm. The Surf solo is now much more oriented! The chorus (second part) is brilliant! that's exactly what I was meaning. biggrin.gif The first part still need some more definition, work on those ideas a bit more and you'll get a great composition.
