Hi Gabe !

Thanks a lot for opening this thread ! I play Metal ( Megadeth, Stratovarius, etc.. ) / Rock ( Maiden's style ) and I'm really open to all music style. My weakest techniques are the 3 string sweep and my Alternate picking ( Actually it's not that bad, I just can hit one note on another string and continue my AP ) . I don't have the musical hear too, I can't understand the theory behind a chord or things like that. If you play a song, I won't know if it's in the key of A , D, E ... My influences, there a a lots of them but I'll name a few, Yngwie, Paul Gilbert, Dave Mustane, Friedman and all Neo classical stuff.
I think I'm pretty good in rhythmic, as I can easily play Staccato over a power chord and things like that.

I have been playing music at school for 3 years, but it never tried to really get better, because everything looked too hard sleep.gif

I would really like to get better with my sweeping and with my alternate picking, almost every solo have those smile.gif

I don't know if you can help me with that, but I know that some GMC:er are recording themselves from their computer and directly upload to SoundCloud, how can we do that, what do I need to buy ? It could be a great investment smile.gif

By the way, before I forget about it, I learned my English at school with intensive English course, so I will sometime say things that have totally no sense at all. ( I'm speaking French ) biggrin.gif

Hi mate! Thanks for your info! Yes, it's difficult to guide you if you can't record yourself... tell me your budget and I will suggest you what to buy to record yourself.

Have you been working on any lessons from the site?

At the moment, I can invest 150 - 250 $

I am working on your Stratovarius Lesson, it's pretty easy but I still have an hard time with the part 4.

That's one of my weak point too, Every time I need to play something fast, I totally mess up because I need to change string dry.gif

These are my suggestion to be able to record and film yourself, let me know if you have any question!

M-Audio Fast Track

Shure SM 57 to mic your amp or Guitar rig (or any other amp emulator)

Logitech 9000 Webcam

Reaper Multitrack: http://www.reaper.fm/

All this is confusing ^^

What is M-Audio Fast Track ? Can I plug the guitar directly in it ?

Shure SM 57 is a microphone but Guitar Rig is an emulated amp, why do I have the choice between both ?

I've heard this program somewhere but was is Reaper Multitrack ?

Sorry for all theses question smile.gif xD

Hi mate! Don't worry! Please ask me all the things that you need to know.

M-Audio is a sound interface that allows you to connect directly your guitar, a mic, a bass or whatever you would like to record in your computer. You connect the interface via USB to your computer.

There are two way of generate your guitar tone. You can use you amp and put a mic in front of it to record or you can directly connect your guitar to the M-audio's input and use guitar rig as an amp simulator.

A multitrack software allows you to record different tracks of music and mix them together.

Check out this tutorial:

Hi Gabe !

Sounds great, I will try to buy and M-audio Fast Track and a webcam as soon as possible smile.gif

What about free amps emulation software, Ivan didnt really talked about these in is video, but are they good ? My amp is a Line 6 Spider IV and don't have a lots of possibility. tongue.gif

I'll try to be at your VChat today, because I'm working on my Outside / Inside AP Picking ( a little more my inside ) wink.gif

Great! I haven't tried the free amp simulators, but you should try them before buying any other thing. By the way, doesn't you amp include a recording line our or something similar to connect it directly to your sound interface?

yeah! that record out could work. You should try it, if it sends a tone with an emulated speaker you would have a really good tone, if not, maybe you will still need an emulator.

It works really great ! The sound quality is good enough, and I didn't had time / idea to record something. Tomorrow is my last exam, I'll have all the time to record something smile.gif. I'll try to record something with inside picking and string skipping, as they are really hard for me . happy.gif

Thanks ! smile.gif Now that I can record myself, I'll try to integrate a little more to all GMC's possibilities tongue.gif

Can you help me out with my practice routine ? I still have no routine, I'm grabbing my guitar, trying some inside picking, and get tired pretty quickly because I have nothing else to do sleep.gif

Cool mate... so let's start creating a diary routine, but first I should see you playing some soloing stuff. Maybe we could choose any musical lesson from the archive to work on and combine it with this technique exercises:

LESSON #1 – WARMING UP & ENDURANCE
LESSON #3 – RIGHT HAND / ALTERNATE PICKING
LESSON #8 – RIGHT HAND V / SWEEP PICKING (2 strings arpeggios)

What do you think?
