well thank you for being honest! I have not been able to tap this fast for more than a week so that would also explain a little of the dirty playing! Like when i was first able to play 16th notes at 150 bpm i had no control for the first 2 weeks or so. But soon i got cleaner! i am practicing daily and i hope to post the full lesson soon! i luv the sound of it smile.gif
its ok
haha yes but i generally get worse when i play live cause my fingers start shaking and i get soo nervous ha tongue.gif
thank you for being honest i will certianly work on it
thank you for the encouragement! nice pic lol



Vic
Dude i didnt say anything that wasent true man.Sure i could have fraised it to come off as mean as posible sad.gif ,but what i said is exactly how i felt.I am suprised that post was left up becasue i feel like if i wrote something like that it would have been erased because they are supposed to only allow constructive critisizm here and i cleaned my act up months ago over it and dont say anything like that now.andmy looking at how it comes off im glad i stoped.

Vic i think last time i talked to you that you said you had been playing for some amount of months almost a year(sorry if im wrong).My point is that i didnt even know what tapping was till i had been playing for a few years.Maybe that makes me dumb but what ever,you learn at your own rate as everybody is different and wants to do different things on guitar.Like i said in my first post you know you dont have it down thats why you asked for comments and that should be respected,but you were actually making tapps and starting this in under a year. smile.gif I also think you are on a very good track with your playing on guitar.You are going for all the right techniques rather then just playing songs form a band like i did when i started.

A mistake i have made that has made me have to go back rather than forward though is learning something sloppy then think i got it down and moving on to next thing.We all want to learn as quick as possible but truth is it takes a life time.Best advice i can give you is master each technquie correctly before you move on.Never just get something half way and settle for it on the guitar or you will pay for it later down the road if your looking to master the guitar.Just remember it's better to play slow and acurate than fast and sloppy.(thats something i have to tell myself to this day)

I'm just expressing my opinion like you did and with no disrespect to you.Not looking for someone to fight with on here and i see your point of not telling someone there good when there not.Just dont agree with the way you phrase it and especially when they are new to the game and asking for help advice not bashing

Apologies first to Vic,
But as much as I hadn't intended to carry the argument on I didn't want this one to slide.

Quote 'You do them no good' ... 'I have the truth on my side'.

Well as a minor point personally I don't like having words attributed to me which I did not utter. BUT (and it's a big BUT) I'll write that one off to poor editing.

More importantly, I was not aware that any of us here was the final arbiter on truth. All of a sudden one of us is in a definitive position as to exactly what constitutes truth, beauty, perfection? 'Hard' criticism? REALLY??? I do critique and feedback for a living and frankly you over-stepped the mark. To now do a 'good to see you can take hard criticism' response if frankly crass. Provide constructive criticism, or if not then none.

Anyway I'm not going to carry this on here as it's not appropriate to the thread.

Tony

yeh it was pretty bad the tapping. You should have slowed down when you fist started it because it seems like you forgot about accuracy before speed. I'm no expert at guitar but you should never play faster then you can because it gives bad results just keep that in mind smile.gif

Thanks Andrew for reminding of the posting guidelines. smile.gif

Victafor -

If you would have asked what we thought about your recording techniqe - I would have politely asked you to keep practicing very hard.

However, you asked us about your newly acquired tapping technique - and then I must congratulate you for your quick progress! biggrin.gif (And of course encourage you to keep practicing as well).

I don't know what equipment you have - but if you added more distortion to the sound, some reverb, recorded directly to the computer, played only the tapping part to a backing track, then you might even impress fkalich (your age and experience taken into consideration).

This forum is all about constructive critism. In order to achieve this - we need to analyse exactly what we are hearing. If a recording gives you a very bad impression - saying "it sucks" (or similar) won't help anybody, instead please refrain from posting.

However, if you can explain exactly why it sounds bad - then you are doing the topic started a great favor!

thanks kris! but one of the reasons i had it sounding bad is because the settings i had on my amp and little cheap v-amp for effects, made the slightest touch to the guitar very loud! I use this so that i can play cleaner! so that when i have my lesson or song clean on this setting, i can play it clean on almost all others! smile.gif

why are you lying to him Smikey? It does them no good. Tell them the truth. You certainly can learn to pay well, anybody can with work. But that was bloody awful. Noise pollution. Slow down and work on your timing. Play with a metronome as Pavel told you, but also learn to play with timing without a metronome as Marcus would tell you. Or otherwise just do what you are doing and hope that people keep worrying about hurting your feelings and not telling you how awful it was.

This is what is wrong with the American Public school system, nobody wants to tell people when they are doing something awful, they always feel a need to put a positive spin on it, to be SENSITIVE. Crap.



Well dont take what you thinks wrong with the American Public School System out on Victafor dry.gif. No one on this forum should ever kick someone whos in the learning phase. Yes there is such thing as being entitled to ones point of view. But no offense you took it slightly out of perportion.


As for your playing Vic, It was ok. The technique is there but the whole puzzle of it you havnt quite pieced together yet. Slow down and use the metronome, youll be amazed by how cleanier and faster youll get ! Your advanced chords lesson was good and I was upset to see this lesson because Ik you didnt spend as much time on this then you did on the advanced chords smile.gif Practice Practice Practice and more Practice makes Perfect, or something close to it ? tongue.gif
