I think this is the first clip I've posted up for the GMC collective to critique! smile.gif

I'm learning (or trying to learn) Electric Gypsy for an upcoming review of the Ibanez Premium Andy Timmons AT10P. I love the song but it's the first time I've learnt any Andy Timmons stuff. I'm only about halfway through but thought it could use some feedback.

I'm using the AT10P into the S-Gear 2 plugin. I've gotta say, my half arse playing aside, I think the tone sounds AWESOME!

I think your doing a good job, my only critique would be to finish some of the phrasing as he plays it. The intro melody has these pull then slide down a maj 3rd. Into a power chord. But throughout he has those pull slide sequences that are tricky to hear. The other thing that stuck out was the use of pre bends during the solo. Specifically the half step bend that starts off the descending beautiful run that is near the end of the first solo.

I had a hard time with that first lick and still could use some work. It starts on the and of 1 and has mini phrases and he holds on to a few notes just a lil longer. If you slow it down you'll hear it.

Keep up the good work, can't comment on tone from my phone.

That is a sweet sounding tone. cool.gif I'm not too familiar with this song but it sounds like you are doing a good job with it!

Thanks very much guys smile.gif

Hopefully this weekend I'll find the time to learn the rest! Though, considering the relatively short time frame I have these guitars for (2-3 weeks, which includes time for photography, writeup and making clips) I may just have to resort to some improv in later sections smile.gif

Hey mate!

The tone is definitely nice, but as Jim noticed - he plays the song as well and he also did a good job with it - there are some spots in the song which are a bit rigid, in comparison with the original rendition of the tune. Try to focus on those details, such as phrase endings or the roundness of some notes, which matter a lot in Andy's playing.
