Many thanks Alex,..
But really we owe you!
I am just starting to understand what I'm doing on the neck! You know!
You're a beacon man! Your guidance is insightful. I feel the progress and I just LOVE IT!
I just wish I could get that sound - that distinctive sound,.. and be able to move from one scale to the other...just like you do.
When I listen to your work it is so unique, present, distinctive and creative!
Your approach to any song always gets us into new territories!
For this, I would like to thank you and recognize this moment... you are making a difference for me,.. and I am sure, for all of us!
(Gee I hope Kristopher reads this!!)

Alex you're the man! Thanks

JPB.




... and what you did for us last December 2nd was just fantastic!
While experiencing a power outage at your home.. and not able to broadcast your video chat session with us..
you went over board and borrowed a minivan from a friend to get to the nearest MacDonald to gain access to a wireless signal to do your lesson.. Man that was out of the ordinary period. (I hope Bogdan reads this!)
I thought... what a nice gesture, what a nice testimony of a truly artistic moment of thinking outside the box!!
You know what I mean,... we were just truly impressed by your "authenticity".

I rest! You have it!

While waiting for the next assignment.
REMEMBERING CCR - JPBluestring
I tried to do one that would loop nicely since the last one was hawful.
Cubase 6 recording- Yamaha Bass, Rhythm and Lead guitar Ibanez AF105-NT - Guitar Rig 5 effect - 120 BPM
I think I got it! In the style of CCR.
Just a groove to add a good lead - (Come on guys!)
We're getting there I think!
Thanks Alex for your guidance.

You did a great job! I would suggest to turn up guitar a little bit louder this way it will be up front and your lead will stand out more! Other than that great job as always! wink.gif

Yes you are definitively right! (as usual!)
With some tweaking on the mix down and a better balance between rhythm and lead guitars.
Here's a new take. (Same cut)
Makes sense. Thanks

How to present it ? _ I don't know quite frankly!
Here is my track after this morning's lesson.
Based on E min of course (definitely a minor!)
I tried to include the principles of harmonization.
I tried to combine scales the best I could while staying creative on the melody!
U be the judge once again!
I worked hard to get one that would loop perfectly.
Kept the lead up front as much as possible.
Gave it some time for the progression to be - allowing a silent here and there.
Balancing the rhythm and lead guitar to give it the right dimension. Worked a bit on panning.
I am sorry, did not include an arpeggio - but working on it.

This is a Salute to a true Guitar Master
Many thanks - sincerely,..
