hi Gabriel

I found a teacher next to my house.
He gave me a job : Gary Moore Style Solo.
He noticed my weaknesses, it gives me work to progress.

What do you think of this take, I put the link to the original track



Original Track : http://ahp.li/52c2b9b36674fbc689f2.mp3

Hi MisterM, that sounds great!

Your take sounds good. When comparing your playing with the original take I notice some elements that could be worked and have impact in your playing.

The original lesson has more marked dynamics, mostly related to stronger phrases or group of notes that make the solo more accentuated and aggressive. Also note how the trill lick, and well as the bends and vibrato are tighter and strong on the original lesson.

Gary's playing was very intense, and a good way to work on them is to start with exaggerated intensity in order to train your fingers.

At 00:15 of your take, you are missing a faster pattern, check it out and notice if you are missing other similar ideas along the whole lesson.

Hello Gab

Thank you for your advice, I continue the work to correct the imperfections

Current lessons GMC:

- Winter Wonderland ( Guido)
I play the lesson every day since several weeks..
I shall make a take this week end

- With Motown has Funk Brothers ( Guido)
I learn it since 3 days, this lesson asks for a lot of muscular relaxation. I like it...
I shall make a video ... 10/15 days.

Personal work:

- Freedom by Robben Ford
I learn it for 10 days, it is very pleasant to play but also very hard.
I hope that this lesson will improve my guitar playing

Hi Gab

I made a take 80% speed : Motown with the funk Brothers.

It's very difficult for me to play as original track.
It's Hard work - I don't know name of technique : Shank or strumming but I want to progress about it.
I shall work my Flexibility right hand



Accelerated version tongue.gif
Spoiler:



I discovered Bias FX, it is great, I don'tt really have adjust the parameters,
but the tone is better that native instrument GR5

What do you think about tone ?
I use this preset, it's good ?

Spoiler:
Factory Low Gain / FUNKY 2 (Basic)









Factory Low gain / BLUES 3 (Lead)

Hi mate, this sounds good! I think that the tone is good, but I feel that there is room to make it sounds "bigger". I would try with some more compression for the rhythm part which sounds like small for me. The lead tone sounds much better for me, it's warm, clear and has the right amount of sustain. In order to keep polishing it, I think that you could try to make the ambiance effect, clearer. Experiment adding EQ to reverb or changing the settings.

Your playing is on the way too. The rhythm lesson sounds good but you still need to gain confidence. This will happen with repetition so keep on practicing every day.

Hi Gab

I work on - Thank for advices about my tone, I'll try

I had learnt this lesson last year : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Funky-Blues-Rhythm/
I had lost the motivation because I didn't understand the rhythm right hand.
Today I feel good, I'm begining to understand how to play strumming/Shank technic

I think that these 2 lessons have similarities. They are complementary.

I'll make a take in a few days... smile.gif

Hi MisterM!

I like this tone more than the previous one for rhythm. Maybe you have to experiment more with the bias plug in. On the other hand, I think that the lead tone was better in the previous take (Bias).

Regarding your playing, this is great as always. There are some obvious details that can be polished but the overall is really good. I don't find any relevant issues to mark. You are doing a great job.

Hi mate, cool videos!

I like how your videos look. The backgrounds look great! Also that guitar is very nice.

Your playing is good on both videos but there is more room to adjust timing on both. It's not completely bad but it's irregular. There are timing issues here and there. You need to continue training your right hand. It seems that you lose a bit the rhythm when you have to think on your left hand. This will disappear with more repetitions as soon as you get more familiar with the parts.

Keep working hard!

No problem mate! You are always invited to the collabs. Feel free to share the one that you want.

I'll check your take at REC, but I'm sure that it's great as always. smile.gif

Hello Gab

I understand the critics of Ben and Darius about the lead track
I voluntarily added the ambient room audio track of the "gopro"
I mixed 30% audio track "gopro" and 70% "Native instrument guitar rig" audio track.

The only track of guitar always seems to me too aggressive.

Also, I did not succeed has to obtain the same tone as the previous take.
I've mixed old track and new track.
I shall have of to insist to find the same tone. I took the easy way out mad.gif


However, I think that ben and Darius were severe about the rhythmic.
I do not possess enough economy of movement to have a tight playing
I know that are still needed working years to obtain it.
I keep hard work to impove it every day.

Thank you for the help which you gives to me smile.gif

Hi MisterM! Don't take the comments as personal. I think that the most severe the instructors are the better, because it will take the best from you. There is not any other reason for the REC than helping you to be the best you can so I think that it's great to see that other instructors can visualize more headroom in your playing.

Even though, you are doing a killer job at GMC. I'm always amazed of how much you work and the results you get.

Keep going.
