Hi Gab

I made a video : Robben Ford Style Blues by Emir Hot
I am proud of my work.
The work with tablature is really a good thing for me.

May I put it in Workshop?

Hi misterM! Great to see you working hard!

This is not an easy lesson. It has lots of licks, it's full of bends, and also has a great manage of groove and articulation. You are on the right track with this one but there are some elements that you need to improve.

The main one is related to timing and groove. There are some little sections in which your timing is not precise, it feels like the licks are not flowing naturally. This is also related to the fact that you are not going groovy with the triplet feel (swing). This makes your take sound less connected with the backing. Try to connect more with the backing's groove, keep tapping with your foot or moving your head while playing the licks.

This will help you to play more with the triplet feel, but it will also help to transmit the feel to how you articulate phrases and melodies (notice the use of staccato in some phrases).

About sharing your take at the REC program, sure! It is always welcome to receive opinions from other instructors!

Hi Gab
I ended the learning of Guido's lesson: Winter Wonderland.
I like very much the chord progression and it is a good exercise for my swing.
The solo section is wonderfull.

I think of making a video tomorrow

Hello Gab

I don't have time to make videos at the moment.

I continue my work.
- Legato: legato 2 (Ben) + other exercises
- Shred: Alternate picking Workout (Muris)
- Winter Wonderland ( Guido)
- Off beat Boogie (Chris)
- Malmsteen made easy (Ben)

Actually, It's difficult because I play guitar 3x25 mn per day.
Fortunately, week-end, I can play more...

In a few week, I'll be free, I will play more.

Hi MisterM!

I notice that you are not comfortable yet with the lesson and mostly with bending but the overall take sounds good! I don't notice timing or pitch issues so you are getting very close!

Have you though on changing strings in your Gibson?

I think that this one is ready for REC program.

Hello gab

Yes I think that I'm going to change and to return on a gauge 10/46.
11/52 is top hard for me.

I posted my Video on REC Friday evening,
Darius gave me 9/10, I'm happy

Hi mate,

I think that your takes don't have really important issues. The first one has more room to sound more room to sound smoother, the phrases more natural, as well as some vibratos. This will happen with more practice, less concentration in what to play but more feeling. It's a natural thing that will happen with time.

The winterland sounds good. In some part I feel that your rhythm is not going tight with the piano, you should pay more attention to it. The solo sounds good, but if you want to go deeper, work more on dynamics (check the original take).

Hi MisterM!

Thanks for sharing the previous video. I've compared both takes and the improvements are totally notorious. Your playing is getting tighter, and your hands are getting more comfortable with the different patterns. The parts sound cleaner and clearer, but there are still timing issues mostly with the faster parts, where you tend to rush the tempo. This means that you are able to play the parts but your mind makes you hurry up and rush tempo. The best to master this is to work on just one section that include slow and fast patterns, and its transition. Repeat this as a loop until you notice that the connection is smooth and both parts are played tight with tempo.

Hi MisterM, good to see this one progressing!

Your tone sounds good here, it's close to the original. It's the same "type" of tone. I would only try to give it more "body" by increasing some bass, low mids frequencies and see how it results.
