Great one again Kris, thank you.

Thank you for the answer about developing phrasing too, I hope it helped others too. I also kept it running after I said I had to go so I did hear your answer to playing over different time signatures. It's hard to ask the full question on there because of only being allowed 200 characters. What I struggle with is if I'm playing over something in 3/4 time, like Always With Me Always With You, it's hard to accent notes on the 1st beat of the bars when your so used to playing 4/4. I hope that makes sense.

I wonder if it's an idea to have a featured question on your live streams. Maybe it would encourage people to come and have a look. It's just an idea, I'm not telling you how to do you job wink.gif You could select a question from the forum each week that you think is particularly interesting and have a "Great Question Of The Week" feature when you feel like a break from playing after an hour or so.

Cheers

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the suggestion - I am not necessaily against prepared content for the streams (such as fetaured questions, instructional content). However I do enjoy the spontaneity - and I think that is what keeps them fresh. Perhaps you would liek to choose a question from the forum and ask me every Sunday - could be cool!

About the 3/4 time - I am sorry to say that I have never actively learned or practiced tricky time signatures - I simply have no experience analysing them. Like I told you on facebook - if I can tap my foot I am usually good - and I don't really see the purpose of counting... Sorry mate can't give you a more helpful answer here.

No worries mate. I just noticed my passing sounded odd when I played over Satriani's Always With Me Always With You because I didn't know it was 3/4. I was trying to play a chord thing like he does at the beginning but tapping 4/4, then I realised.

Cheers

Great one today, I couldn't hang around for the reply to my question though so I'll wait for the upload wink.gif

I hope the collab link got a few people to come and have a look at us.

Finally got around to finding the answer to my question. Not sure I fully understand the answer rolleyes.gif but I kinda get what you mean. I guess at my level, we want to "know" that we are playing the "right" notes by position rather than our ears telling us.

If anyone is interested scroll to 2:43:48.

Thanks Kris.

WOW. That is a seriously complex and EXPENSIVE rig you have there. I was hoping that others could copy your setup. Sadly I doubt many folks would be able to spend the kind of money it would take just to get all the software your using, much less get all the hardware. Since youtube stopped doing their own streaming and put the burden on users, it has slowed down the number of folks streaming quite a bit and now I can see why. It's crazy expensive!

The only free live streaming left is something like INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK LIVE or TWITCH. Youtube has priced everyone out of the market it seems sad.gif

Todd are you referring to my setup? Yes - wirecast is expensive but at this point well worth it as it has unparalleled functionality.

If I got it right- you asked about playing all over the fretboard. The standard answer would be to learn the 5-7 boxes of the scale, learn where the root notes are and then slowly start connecting them together - ie by using sliding technique.

What I was trying to say, is that not only is this method slow - but I think it is kinda boring.

So I suggest you learn new scale position by trying to play some music/licks in them. If you are having problems with that, there is no need to push things. Remember countless guitarists have built a career using just the very first pentatonic box. So you can stick to that one for a couple of more months if you are not ready for new scale positions.

Thanks Kris,

I guess I'm still paranoid about playing a "wrong" note so I try to visualise the patterns. I use extended pentatonic the most, I suppose I could try adding the full major/minor notes into that to start with?

Thank you

Phil

I"ve heard nothing but good things about WIRECAST smile.gif It's evidently the best way to go for what it does. The price puts it outside of most students budgets for sure. The good news is, there are free options, like the new INSTAGRAM "STORIES" function, which allows any instagram user to stream live from their phone, also FACEBOOK has free live streaming, and of course TWITCH (intended as a game platfoorm) will work as well. So don't fret (pun!) over the high cost of wirecast folks, you just need your cell phone and instagram/facebook app to start live streaming smile.gif Of course, it's much more basic, but it's hard to complain for the price smile.gif

Yes this is def my favourite approach! And don't let fear of wrong notes lead you development - you will end end playing perfectly but very boring - at best!

If you are not making any such mistakes you are playing way too safe. I do mistakes all the time and I love my mistakes - because often they will lead me into new territory. (even if many of them do sound bad)

Another good one Kris, thanks for the advice, I'll be checking out that fake picking lesson.

Cheers
