Hey Gab - update time!

So I ended up finishing the Marilyn Manson cover a few days after I posted about it, I was in a rush to get it done before school started back up. It's not perfect but I am happy with it still.



Also, I have a cover done for Senses Fail - Rum is for Drinking Not for Burning. Just waiting for a buddy of mine to do bass for it so stay tuned for that!

And I've always loved John 5 - especially the song Damaged but I always felt I was never good enough to tackle it (still kind of do) - the intro is definitely going to take a lot of work but for only a weeks worth of practice this is where I am at and I am pretty happy with it, what do you think? (I excluded the crazy intro to avoid embarrassing myself)



Cheers!

EDIT: I forgot to mention I got a new guitar - A Michael Kelly Patriot Premium with EMGs :-)

Hi Chris!! Nice to hear from you!!

I think that I've already said that I love that Manson's song! And you did a great job with this cover. I've enjoyed your version while singing the vocals over your lead guitar. Well done my friend.

And that John 5's teaser!! It's a bomb! I don't think that you are not at that level, the preview sounds very promising. Can't wait for the full track!

Thanks for the confidence Gab! Damaged is going to take a while to get down so I've been doing some small covers in between.

Cover numero uno is Stay Loud! - Drifting:



My good pal Carl is the bassist/founder of this local pop/punk alternative band. I really dig their work and the cool thing about this cover is I actually tabbed it out 100% by ear which is something I have never done before. I know it's a pretty straightforward song but I was still surprised that I was actually able to do it. cool.gif

Cover #2 is Senses Fail - Rum is for Drinking Not for Burning featuring Carl (from Stay Loud) on bass:

Hey Chris! Great job with both covers! I'm enjoying that song by your friend's band. It sounds cool, catchy but deep punk rock, with some modern feel.

Your playing is very precise on both videos, and the tone is very powerful. Good job!

Based on this videos, I would really like to see you rocking some of my GMC lessons. Have you seen the Metalcore series? https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/lessonseries/Metalcore/

and there are also many modern punk rock ones...

Hey Gab! I really dig the Bring Me the Horizon lesson that djenty riff is killer! I'll start working on that in conjunction with the John 5 Damaged cover that will take me a while to complete.

Speaking of John 5 Damaged this is the second part:



Biggest part of this one is the tapping - especially trying to eliminate the string noise as I am having a hard time muting everything except the one string I am pick tapping on.

Wou! That's sounding really well Chris!! You are doing a great job with that cover.

And regarding my BMTH lesson, I would be proud if I find your take at REC!
