Hello Gabriel
Thanks for accepting me in your monitoring program .
sorry for the late reply btw.
here's some of info about me that might help you.
- been playing guitar since 2008 at first I was playing only classical guitar
you can watch some of my crappy vids in the links below smile.gif

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKVhBfCDSjQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPpHVtWyM_Q
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xqOFcgPaG0

I was always interested in electric guitar but unfortunately western music is not very popular where I live
so I was lucky to find someone who could teach me classic guitar just to get the basic knowledge of the instrument
then last year I decide to start looking on the internet to learn what I actually liked about the instrument.

I love a lot of kinds of music not only rock and metal
but in this area I like bands such as Manowar, Megadeth, Ironmaiden, Metallica, Sabbath, Dethklok,
zztop, the Georgia satellites, red hot chilli peppers, tenariwen, pinkfloyd, eric clapton, satriani, steve via. guns n roses I also like blues and folk metal but I cant recall any favorite band at the moment.
in five years from now .. I can't be specific about this but I surly want to grab my guitar and rock out real good ASAP smile.gif
maybe I'd start to make clean good covers of my favorite solos and bands .. compose some good solos and guitar riffs.. to upload on my channel !! since that's the only stage I can rely on where I live.

I can practice from 2 to 3 hrs everyday.

I havent played live before, no .. not even with my friends .. haven’t known anyone who share the same passion before.

what's my weakest and strongest points ? I guess I still know little about guitar to answer that properly.. but in a technical point of view .. Id say that my hands tends to sweat a little and that makes the whole playing experience uncomfortable .. but it doesn’t bother so much till now except in the summer where the weather gets too hot.

I know the basic stuff about music theory .. timing, major and minor chord construction, major and minor scales, the pentatonic scale ..

yes I can record my self .. I use guitar Rig and a cheap webcam .. I guess you've seen my vids in the Rec Room before
but once I guess better in playing I'll spend some money on a good cam and learn more about making good videos.

wanna c some vids ? watch the links above and you can also check my posts in the Rec room.

btw way I have worked with Cosmin before on the two lesson
and the lesson I'm working on right now is Ben's vibrato odyssey I'll upload my take here..
I’m not done with it yet I still have more work to do on it.
check it out and let me know what you think.

if you have any more questions plz let me know.

Tnx

Hi Anese! Thanks for this info! Your classical guitar videos are really cool. I think that having learn to play that stuff is a great background for you. I remember Zakk Wylde saying on an interview that he took classical guitar lessons and then when he switched to electric he used that technique combined with pick in an hybrid technique called Hybrid Picking, and he is a monster on it!

I've been also checking some of your REC takes, picking hand, power chords. Could you please post here the last take of each of the GMC lessons that you've worked?

Hi mate! Thanks for the links. I think that your take on the alternate picking lesson is good so you are ready for the next step on this technique. I was thinking on this lesson that combines legato with alternate picking, in order to incorporate the work over a new technique: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/legato...cking_beginner/

and in order to continue your work on power chords but on a more "musical" situation, I think that a lesson like this one can work: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Classi...nk-Sex-Pistols/

I have many lessons in the style of at this level so you can check my archive to choose another lesson that covers the style of a band that you like more. Check my archive HERE

Hello Gabriel
I have looked through both of the lessons, and they seemed fine to me, I have not looked through all of your rock rhythm lessons yet, but if I found a one that i liked more I'd let you know. however, I'd rather finish working on my vibrato lesson and take it to the REC room before I step on the new lessons . so have you listen to my vibrato lesson take ? what do you think?
if you have other practice plans, please let me know.
Thank you

Hi Anese, your plan sounds good to me.

Your vibrato work is evolving good. There are many parts that sound really good while some others need still to be polished. I notice that there are some moments the rhythm of your vibrato doesn't go with the groove of the backing (ex: 00:25), and there are also some pitch issues, mostly when you move to higher notes (for example at 00:12). The last notes of the lesson have more notorious pitch issues (00:55).

To clarify, I think that your take on this lesson is not bad, but you have to focus on this details to master it. Practicing over the original lesson can really help for this.

Hi mate, rhythm is much better on this new take. There is still some room to make the 8th notes and triplets even tighter but you are very close. Practice the tune a bit more over the original lesson and then get back to the backings track, I think that you'll master this soon.

About guitar rig files, I think that you can share them if you first zip the files. Try it and let me know.

ok! to be able to open it because I don't use it! I'll check if there is a demo version to open your preset.

By the way, could you please share some print screens to let me see your current settings?

hello Gabriel
here i attached two screens, this was a preset already included in Guitar rig, I had to change some nobs to get a better sound.
even though it seems complicated but this is the only one i could find which is so close to the original lesson tone color.

Hi mate, thanks for the print screens. You say that you can't get a similar color and it's normal because if you check Ben's lesson he adds in the description that he is using a Marshall amp while your patch is build based on a mesa boogie amp. Those presets usually have complex combinations of modules that can confuse so I recommend you to start a new preset build with a simple chain:

Guitar - Ov Pedal - Marshall Amp - Cabinet

Check out Ben's details about settings:

Gear: Marshall JVM 410H, OD1 channel (Red setting) Bass - 1 Mid - 9 Treb - 6 Gain - 3

There you also have the EQ balance that can be a starting point. Please try it and let me know what happens.

Hello Gabriel
I tried some combinations of what you suggested I got some good sounds but I feel
more comfortable with the preset that I previously used.
however I was trying to work on that last B-string note of the vibrato lesson ..please listen and let me know
what you think.
Thanks

Well, this amp that you are using will have more sustain and mid bass frequencies than Marshall so if you like it more you can keep it since that's related to your taste and can help to develop your own tone/style.

The audio sample sounds good. The vibration could be a bit wider to reach the original but the speed is very close. How does it sound over the backing?

Hello Gabriel
I noticed that my guitar volume was a bit louder than the backing track and I thought it would sound better if i lower the volume.
here's another take I recorded today.
check it and let me know what you think.
thanks

Hi Anese, thanks for the audio. I can say that your vibrato is evolving well but the pitch that you are reaching is not precise. The slower vibrato is a bit lower than the pitch while the faster is higher. The timing is ok, but you have to be careful with pitches.

Does it make sense?
