Thanks Gab. That's most important that my playing gets better and I enjoy the time with my guitar wink.gif

Also started to learn this lesson:

Hi Gab,
here is a first HIM style video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vR2JQlXv6qk...em-upload_owner


and a new Gilmour recording with a tone that has less gain and is closer to the original lesson.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_cXhPeNTrs...em-upload_owner


Besides the two above and the Gilmour Lead lesson I still work on Ben's Picking Hand Basic's and play every day minor pentatonic. I chose a key and then play all shapes up and down the fretboard. Once I got it I try to find nice melodies using all shapes and try connect them.

Is my practice to okay or should I make some changes?
Thanks Tom!

Hi Tom,

Your practice sounds good! I've checked the two vids and I can say that you are doing the things correctly. You need to continue practising the HIM lesson to adjust timing with is an issue in the whole take, it's not dramatic, but things are not tight, put your focus on timing.

Gilmour lesson sounds good! It can be polished, but it's great to see you playing like that! Everything is closer. Please continue practising this one, compare your take with the original, each lick to see how it can be improved.

How much time do you have for practising nowadays?

It's ok if you organise your time like this:

40 minutes: Him Lesson
40 minutes: Gilmour lesson
20 minutes: Picking hand basics
10 minutes: Playing once or twice other lessons you've worked.
10 minutes: Improvise over any of the backings.

Hi Gab,
was working the last weeks to get a decent take of two lessons as I want to start new lessons to keep motivation high.
I feel with both lesson I am somewhat near my current playing abilities so new improvements will be very small only.

Picking Hand Basic's
https://youtu.be/bZyUAT8KGLE

David Gilmour Lesson
two recordings with different tones. which do you prefer - or do you thing both are not a good choice?
https://youtu.be/chjMLHTnilg

Thanks for your feedback - Tom.

Hi Tom,

Great to see you working hard! I think that you've been working for enough time on this lessons that it's time to start working on new stuff. There remaining necessary improvements will happen with the pass of time, and with the work on other lessons and complementary exercises.

The lessons show improvements on each of the elements that we've talked about, and there is obviously more room yet. About your tone question I prefer vid: P1050094G. It sounds brighter and more present.

These are the three lessons I started to work on:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...sciante-lesson/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...e-lesson2-lead/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Pink-Floyd-Influences/

My choice was purely guided by taste - I just wanted something that I really enjoy.


Here is a video for the first one. I have been playing this for less than a week. Just to keep expectations right. wink.gif

Hi Tom! Good choices!

Frusciante lesson is going really well! There is just some room to adjust timing, bending and dynamics, but very little room, you are so close mate. Congrats! smile.gif

Hi Tom!! This sounds really good!! I can note your improvements on each of those elements. You've been doing a very good job mate!! The only detail that doesn't make this lesson a 10 is that the tuning of your guitar has some issues. Other than that this is a killer take.

Tuning issues is bad...but that is my fault. Its getting very hot here at the moment and I store my guitar in its case.
When I take it out the temperature difference seems to be enough to change tuning after a while. Okay...another chance to learn from mistakes and make it better in the next video.

Hi Tom,

Nice take. I can notice that your bending is getting better and better. I don't hear relevant pitch issues on this one which is a great thing. What I think needs more attention is vibrato, and dynamics. There are also some slides at the end that are not sounding natural so isolating this section and work on sliding is a good idea.

Also, more days of practice and playing along with the original lesson can help you to get more from this one.

Yes I can hear what you mean with the slides at the end. Will work on all issues you noticed.

That's a good first take for this one. The lesson is really nice and has a beautiful feeling. You need to focus on the elements that we usually talk about, bending, vibrato, dynamics, and timing. Keep on practising with these things in mind.

Hi Gab - another Frusciante video. Guitar is tuned this time (checked before video on open strings, 12th and 18th fret!). I tried to fret notes above 15th fret very softly. If pressing to hard or a little from the side tuning goes up 2-3cent.

Also changed the tone to a different amp (from Fender Princeton Reverb to Marshall 69). Hopefully my changes are good and the overall playing comes near the last video from 2 weeks ago wink.gif

Hi Tom! Good job!

Guitar is perfect now! Your playing is also good. There are only some little issues with bends which are not precise, nor of them. They are close but not perfect. Please isolate and practice them over the backing.

Have you seen my new RHCP lesson? I think that it's perfect for you!
