Hi Ayan, good job with this lesson! The video quality is ok to let me check your status. wink.gif

There are just some details to have in mind during the next days of practice. The first one is that the first 8th notes could be tighter, concentrate on timing on the first section.

The second thing that I note is that your dynamics are not consistent. The intensity of your picking is not regular and is not going with the backing. The 8th notes sound better while the 16th notes tend to sound much quieter. When playing 8th notes, you should slightly accentuate the first of each 2 notes. When playing 16th notes you should accentuate the first of each group of four. Listen to your take and you'll note that this accentuation isn't clear and that the 16th notes are played softer.

Keep on the good job!


Hi Gab,

Is there any lesson to improve the picking dynamics?As you said,my picking was inconsistent.So I want to focus on my right hand picking dynamics and synchronisation with my left hand.

Thanks

Hi Gab,

I am really intrigued about your guitar tones.I have a guitar and an amp.I want to make great tones.Do I have to buy a processor or individual pedals will be good?And which one to buy if any?Thanks

Hi Ayan,

When playing live I use a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier with a Marshall 1960 cabinet. I also use many pedals that I keep on updating. My current pedalboard includes Ernie Ball Volume, Wah wah bad horsie II, some Joyo ironman (huskie Drive, Quattro, Space Verb), Fender Tuner, Boss CE-5, Visual Sound Jekyll & Hide.

About the interfaces, Focusrite is a better choice because it has better preamps and converters.

Hi Ayan,

this is very technical stuff but to have an idea, preamps take your guitar or mic signal and increase it to the appropriate level to recording, converter is the part of the interface that takes your analog signal (guitar in) and converts it to digital to transpose and record it to your computer. This are the two most important things that a sound interface does so the better the preamp and converter are, the better your soundcard is, and usually the more expensive it gets.

Ok, I got you.My goal is to record my playing with effects that you have shared.What I want to know is shall I buy an audio interface?Besides my Reaper is not sensing any guitar,and I am not finding any reason.I guess a audio interface may able to solve the issue.

yes, getting that sound interface is the best you can do to start recording. You'll never regret it. smile.gif

About recording guitar without it, you should install asio4all driver, and set the input of your current soundcard on Reaper.

Sure! And you would be surprised of how wide my music tastes are. Here I shared the albums that had important impact on me, but I love all kind of albums, and music, from classical, to jazz and even pop. I honestly don't focus on labels, I focus on songs and feeling.

About books, I've read a lot at the university, sometimes complete, while other times some chapters. A lot of great stuff that now I don't remember. Here are some that come to mind now:

- Lord of the rings I, II & III.
- Jimi Hendrix by Charles Cross
- The Music Lesson by Victor Wooten
- Effortless Mastery by Kenny Werner
- 1984 by George Orwell
- Punk, the young death by Juan Carlos Kreimer
- The Power of the myth by Joseph Campbell
- Free Play by Stephen Nachmanovich
- Zen Guitar

Well, so you should go for one of there brands:

Ibanez
Schecter
PRS

You need to go to the store and try all the guitars at your price range, and check how they feel in your hands. They must be comfortable, the strings should be close to the neck (low action), the must keep in tune playing open strings and also playing on fret 12. And the sound must be cool to your ears, no noise, balanced EQ. Some of these things can be noted by comparison so compare many guitars at that range and then pick up a good expensive guitar and notice what are the differences, this will give you a clearer view on what are the things that make a guitar really good.
