Hello Gab,

I'm sorry for the lack of takes, but I'm having some problems recording...
I've upgraded my gear to a Line 6 Firehawk and now I can't record like I used to (USB to PC and use camera software on windows).
I've created a ticket with line 6 and posted on the user forums, hopefully some one will help me soon =(

How do you do it? Do you record audio and video together or separated?

Thanks,
Pedro

BTW, do you have some logo for the Gab's Army?
I would love to print it on a t-shirt to use on my videos wink.gif

Hi mate!

I record audio and video separated and then edit it with a video editor (adobe premiere). I record and mix audio in Cubase.

Gab's Army logo and t-shirt?? That would be awesome! I don't have a designed logo yet... we need someone who can do it...

Hey Gab,

I managed to record using obs.

I also managed to leave the backing track out of the video recording biggrin.gif I'll figure it out on the next take.

I need more practice obviously sad.gif

Hi mate! Great to see that you are starting to figure out how to create videos of you playing the lessons. The video looks and sounds very good. In order to let me analyze better your playing, it will be better to see you playing over the backing tracks so solving it should be your next step.

This video includes really helpful info about it:




Regarding your playing, yes, it needs more work but you are on the right track. The rhythm section seems to be very close, while the solo part shows more issues regarding timing, cleanness and pitch.

Hey Gab,

Sorry for the lack of takes, I've not yet found a way to record with my new gear.
I'm gonna go the store where I bought for them to check it out, maybe it's a faulty device.

Hey Gab,

I finally got he damn thing working (a friend showed me how), so I will probably do a take this weekend.
Last week when practicing I felt like I was actually doing worst then before, but this week I'm feeling a lot better with the song.
For practice I'm just doing the whole song over and over again for like 30 to 40 minutes at a time at full speed. Is there a better way?
I wonder how far I am from recording a 'rec' though... Maybe you could tell me on my next take?

Hi mate, great to know it!

That's a good way for practising, and it can be combined with some practice over the tricky sections. Isolate the parts that give you more trouble and work on them.

Hey Gab,

Can't wait to see if some creative guy posts an awesome logo for "Gab's Army" =)

Anyways, here is the new take...

I'm not happy with it, but I've been recording for over an hour and this was the best I could do. It's one of the first ten I recorded and the last ones where even worst. sad.gif

Ok, this is a bit better but the solo still needs work. However, I think that we are ready to start with some other lessons that will help you to master timing, bending, vibrato, and other techniques. Are you ready for your first assignment?

ASSIGNMENT #1:

Goals:


- Bending practice
- improvisation


TASK 1:

- Work on this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...ending-Workout/


TASK 2:

- Improvise over the backing track of the lesson trying to create your own variations.


Exam and deadline:

By October 20th you'll have to share 2 videos:

- A video playing Bending lesson (5 coins)
- A second video improvising over the lesson's backing (5 coins)

Each of this videos will be evaluated (check the coins value below). You need to get at least 7 coins to pass. If you pass, we can continue, if you don't you will have a second "call" that would be the last one.

Awesome! biggrin.gif

The "coins" thing is just here, it's not official and it's to give you a kind of grading of your work on the assignment.

Nice. This is a good first step man! You've learnt the whole lesson very well, and now it's time to adjust some details. The first one is of course the pitch of your bends, which is not too far, but there are many bends that aren't reaching the right pitch. The problem becomes more important in the double string bend section. There you are below the note.

The idea is that you keep on practicing this one for some days, and combine your practice with the first exercise from this video:



You can even apply the idea to the bends from the lesson.

Another thing that I think that could be tweaked is your tone. I feel that it has too much drive and too much high end. Try balanced the EQ and lowering a bit the gain/drive.

I'd like to hear a new take in 7 days. Is it possible?
