Good morning Gab
I have a question on your Oasis Style lesson (https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Oasis-Style/).
It is about the rhythm of the first three bars that repet throughout the lesson.
I think you are playing in 16th (1 e and a....) starting with an accented downstroke at 1 and another accented downstroke at 2 then I am a bit loss. Any help will be gratefully apprecciated.
Regards
Carmine

Hi Carmine, the rhythm used on this lesson is a bit irregular and the main trick to play it tight is to keep on moving up and down your right hand marking 16th notes, as I do, but just picking strings when it's required.

I recommend you to check parts 5, 6, 7 and 8 from this lesson where I share some different acoustic rhythms and you will understand what I mean when I say keep your hand moving up and down, no matter if you are not playing strictly 16th notes: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/picnic-panic/


The rhythm for Oasis lesson is not regular, it moves with the drums and it's a combination of 4th, 8th and 16th notes. I recommend you to practice the lesson using the slower backings and following the rhythm used in the acoustics. Start slowly, with the introduction (before drums starts), then with the "verse" (when drums start) where I change the rhythm again. It can be tricky to remind it but that's the difficulty of this lesson.

Gab
for lessons as this, where the rhythm is not straightforward, wouldn't it be better to record your video with a clean sound? The distortion made the music very nice and vibrant however, for a learning point of view, it makes quite more complicated.

What do you think?
Thanks a lot in advance

Hi Carmine, thanks for your feedback. wink.gif

We feel that using the same sound than the original video makes more sense to show you how the same guitar part would sound played slower. We tend to do it because it makes more sense. At the same time, we provide guitar pro files that allow you to set it slower and to change the instrument sound, so you could practice the rhythm much slower, and using a clean guitar sound. (please tell me if you know how to do this in Guitar Pro).

My newest lessons include slow video parts with full band backing tracks to make the rhythm lessons easier to follow and understand. This is an example (Check video part 1) : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/A-Day-To-Remember-Style/
I think that this new format, with the addition of the guitar pro files should help you to understand the rhythm behind each lesson.

By the way, I'll be at the Vchat today at 20 hs (London Time), so I can help you with the rhythm of this lesson if you need it.
