Not using my normal video gear, but I think it still turned out okay.

Couldn't of done it without you and Cosmin! laugh.gif
Really wish I was recording at my normal place though, it'd look soooo much better. Watching someone hunched over in the corner isn't exactly fun to watch.

Thanks my man! Trust me, I really don't got skill; took me hours just to come up with 8 bars of solo. laugh.gif

No worries mate. I actually managed to get him to solo over one of my original tracks; can't f***in' wait to see what he comes up with.

Sorry for bringing this old thread back. but the dude that wrote this track commented on my video; now I really regret not recording a better video! laugh.gif



Here's the original track for those who haven't heard it; only thing I changed was the solo at 1:20.

You know what Socky42 - ? You're time (tempo consistency) is better than his on the transitions from the slow parts to the fast parts, your improv sections are very inventive and you play it all much more musically and with better feel. You make it sound like a song.

*Time to stop copying gear demo music.
Write your own. You have something to say!

Hey mate - I agree with Ken on this one wink.gif

I think you have all it takes to write your own music and be awesome about it - I remember you shared some in the past? smile.gif Why not share some more if you have any ready, or even ideas in the making wink.gif We can always help out with suggestions, so that you can start building your own songs as soon as possible smile.gif

Yeah, I dunno about that, the solo is actually multiple takes spliced together. laugh.gif
And I wish it was improv, I remember spending a solid 3/4 days writing it.

I've got a couple of ideas floating around but i've not had a lot of time to play lately; so when I do play I don't really think about writing and stuff like that. I just jam on some backing tracks to try and not forget how to play.

I'll have a lot more free time by the end of November; so I can get my LP cover done and maybe one original recorded in December.

Mate, you won't forget how to play smile.gif Writing music is the most important thing to do and it should go WAY above obsessing that you will lose your skills. Ask yourself this: Why did you learn how to speak - in order to be good at it, or in order to be able to become understood by those with whom you want to communicate in various ways? smile.gif Let's see those ideas and maybe a different mindset wink.gif

Don't worry, I was just exaggerating. laugh.gif I still try out new ideas when I play over backings; just don't want the technical side of things to be a limiting factor when I record them properly. Always run into a problem where I have an idea/riff/lick in my head but I can't physically play it you know? I'll post some in our instructor thread later.

And since i've still got them, if anyone wants the tabs to my solo in the video, here they are. It's mostly just C# blues scale.

I understand mate and I am looking forward to hearing your ideas smile.gif Now, about not being able to play them fast in the first place - it's better to record them at a slower pace and to know where you are and where you need to get to and thus, having them laid down in the DAW, you can also start thinking about the orchestration side of things and the rest of the process that will lead you to having something tangible, rather than just an idea somewhere in the back of your mind, that frustrates you because you can't yet play it smile.gif At least that's what I do - I record the stuff at the speed I can play it THEN and work my way around it. I orchestrate it, write the drum track, record/write some bass and then if I like the outcome, I will most likely sort out the speed problem and re-record. If everything else is MIDI based, it will automatically raise itself up to speed when I tweak the tempo smile.gif

Just listened to the video and man this was AMAZING! smile.gif

Your tone, playing and audio mix is really great. Video is also really well done - no need to worry about making a better video, this is one is great and has very cool energy and vibe.

I'm with others that you should start writing your own music asap - you have everything you need to start songwriting.
I would love to listen to your songs.

So, when can we expect new materials? wink.gif
