Yes! The overdrive reacts different depending on the settings that you are using on the amp so if you have a lot of drive on the amp, the overdrive will make the sound a bit dirtier and add sustain but if you lower drive from it, you won't notice a big change.

Hello Gabreil
how are you >
have a listen to this part and let me know what you think.
now since I have to start working on connecting the whole thing together .. do you have any method or way to practice that ?
I noticed that as I progress to new part of the track my muscle memory tends to get weaker and loses track of the previous parts ...
Thanks

Hi Anese, it sounds great!

In order to start connecting the different parts, it's good to work on connecting 2 parts first. This means that you will start creating bigger blocks now, that then you'll connect again in even bigger parts. It should be a progressive process, does it make sense?

Hello Gabreil
I tried to connect the first two parts and somehow the third part started to take shape too.
this take is at 85% speed playing along the backing track.

so what do you think ?

Hello Gabriel
Thanks for your feed back.
I missed some notes there but it's not a big deal the
Only thing I'm struggling to do it is the last vibrato note
On the D scale. it's kinda difficult to do a vibrato right after lagato.

The second thing im worried about is when I tried to play the first three parts over the metronome I couldn't do it. Well it didn't sound cool and I didnt want to force my brain to do something boring.
But when I tried to play over the backing track .,..bam!! Everything flew so naturally from the first go no matter what speed I choose.
So is that a problem??
Talk to you soon
Ah... Don't think I forgot to practice the punk lesson im working on that as well. .
Thanks

mm that's not a big problem, if you can play tight over drums, you should be able to do it over metronome after some little practice. Drummer divides the beat with hihat and that helps, so when you play over metronome, you should imagine the hihat sounding over the beat in 8th, you can use your head to make it easier. For example, if you move your head down with the beat and keep it moving groovy, the second 8th note will happen every time your head gets back to normal position.... does it make sense?

Great to see this one evolving! The legato sections are less tight than the picking ones, but you're on the right track, just keep on the hard work! smile.gif

Hi Anese! This sounds really good! Your playing is very tight and precise on the chords and melodic sections. You just have to learn the last measures and record a take for REC program. You'll be ready in a few days.

About your tone, I feel that it has too much distortion, maybe lowering drive could help to make it sound more classic punk style. Experiment and let me know what happens.

Congrats!

Hi Anese, this audio sounds good. You have good timing on most of the parts. There are some little moments where the notes don't sound totally clear but it's a very small detail. The overall is really good.

What other things are you planning to work?

Hello Gabriel
let me take some takes for the last two lessons in the REC room first then we'll see what can we do next.
btw I recorded a take of the punk lesson today for the REC room, if you think it's good enough ill post it there and see what the other masters have to say/.
https://youtu.be/7lA9syx1HkQ

Hi Anese, the take is good enough for the REC. The only thing that I note that can have a bad reception is that your guitar is a bit out of tune. That's not very acceptable at REC. But your playing good.

Hi Anese, you are getting good sound with both techniques on this video which is not a small thing. However you need to focus on timing since there are many parts that aren't going tight with the backing. It's not something really big but it happens on small fragments of each part, in most of them so you really need to continue practicing trying to avoid it.

Other than that, this sounds very good, keep on the hard work!

Hello Gabriel
Thanks for your help
wink.gif my guitar tune is really bugging me... the sex pistol take on the
REC room is a new take i recorded after you mentioned that my previous one was out of tune.. and before I recorded that one
I made sure that each of the strings was exactly in tune. ( I tune with a guitar rig built-in tuner) .
however I was wondering if my strings are too old to stay intune.. so I changed my strings and I recorded a new take ..
and for my ears it doesn't sound much different.. I don't know what is the issue..
listen to this new take and let me know what you think ..
Thanks

Hi mate, the new take shows that there is something wrong with your strings... maybe they are a bit old, or maybe your guitar need some calibration. When has been the last time you did both things?

Hello Gabriel
I Have changed my strings with a new set of elixe strings right before
I recorded that take.
But I've never calibrated my guita. I had this guitar for almost a year now.. Unfortunately there are no guitar techs where I live.. Is it possible to learn how to calibrate it by my self?
Any how before we go any further with this I will send another recording playing each string at a time to confirm if the guitar is really out of tune or not.
Thanks
