Hey Alex!! Welcome back! Nice to see you here again and also with some new guitar interest!

Let's get back to make music, what are you planning?


Hey Gab!! It is good to be back and see you again! I am excited to start practice and learn some new stuff again!
Hmm actually I do not have any idea, I am willing to learn anything. I am sure you have some plan for me.

Hi Alex,

I think that the first step is to get into practice again so any lesson that motivates you to practice would be ok.

This is just a suggestion, you can go for another one, learn it and share a vid in some days.

I think that lesson will be good, I am not much of a blues guy so I will see if I can find a similair lesson smile.gif

Since I will be graduating High School in just 1.5 weeks I consider buying myself a gift, so I would like your opinion on something. What do you think about putting some Seymour Duncan into a $250 guitar? Do you think it could be good or worthless? smile.gif

Hi Alex,

You won't regret getting a pair of Seymour Duncan for that guitar. And then, if you decide to sell the guitar, you can keep your pick ups for the next guitar.

What models do you have in mind?

I use SH-2 and SH-4, a great combination for rock, but very versatile.

Hi Gabriel!

Thank you, It is always great to have your input on things smile.gif I appreciate your help smile.gif

Actually I am thinking about that combination or SH-1 and SH-4, from what I understood the SH-1 is hotter than SH-2. In more expensive Jackson guitars they use SH-2 and SH-4 combination as well.

yeah, you'll be ok with that pair too. Check out which guitarists use them and go for the ones that are closer to your style. The difference is not very big between sh1 and sh2.

Hey Gabriel!

I got a new video for you, I decided to go for the Gary Clark Jr lesson to play some stuff I usually don't play to broaden my guitar playing. And I have to say it was a very fun lesson to play biggrin.gif I enjoyed it! I played it at 60 bpm.

Hi Alex,

great to see you working on this lesson! It's VERY important to work on stuff that you are not familiar in order to expand your playing and even more on blues lesson since this style can be considered the root of most of the music that you listen and play.

The next thing to improve on this one, before you go for a faster tempo is TIMING. You are not going tight with the backing. If you listen carefully you'll note that your riffing is not unison with the bass which should be your guide.

During the next days I recommend you to work on smaller fragments and before you play the lesson, listen to the backing with your eyes closed and imagine how the guitar should sound over it. Then try playing it.

Hey Gabriel,

Thanks for your feedback! I will keep working, until now I have only practiced this lesson in Guitar Pro but I will try to playing it with backing also. Do you think I should slow down the tempo or keep it as it is?

You can decrease tempo a bit but not too much because it's a slow lesson... maybe 10 bpm. Practising at a slower tempo will make difficult to understand rhythm.

Hey Gabriel!
I have just changed my pickups now to the Seymour Duncan Sh-2n and Sh-4 and it really made a difference, I think it became much clearer sound. So I will continue to practice today and have a video ready for you within 2-3 days.

Right now my routine looks like this.
10 min Warm Up
30 min Timing Practice Been following this videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTvyhwxV8GQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNL50eRJxMU
30 min Practicing Gary Clark in GuitarPro and over Backing
15 min Vibrato/Bending/Alternate Picking
15 min Creative Playing

I also found this video today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAckLGgA86o which I found interesting and inspiring

Hi Alex, great stuff!

Congrats on getting that pair of Seymour Duncans, you won't regret it! smile.gif

That Satriani's video is epic. He shows why it's so important to understand the whole fretboard deeply, and be able to visualize triads, chords, arpeggios and scales. Great found!

I think that your guitar plan looks good, I'll wait for some videos to monitor your progress.

Hi Gabriel!

Yes, I am very happy with that pair so far smile.gif I like it a lot smile.gif

I feel like I need to get better to visualize triads, chords, arpeggios and scales, it is something that definitely needs more work. smile.gif

Edit:
Unfortunately no video but I got you audio recording smile.gif

Hi alex,

Your playing is good on the lesson but the rhythm is not going with the backing track. The overall timing / rhythm is moved. It's really tricky to play this lesson over the slow backing and keeping the rhythm correctly so maybe you should use guitar pro in 60 bpm with the metronome on to check how the licks should sound... is it possible?
