Definitely right on with the hurrying thing. I have a tend to do that sometimes. Needs more practice and to play it slowly first for sure. That was just me trying to throw something together before I had to go to work and was the first take. But I wanted to post something. Well, back to practicing.

Ahh,I see some cheating here biggrin.gif
Joking of course,adding note on bend with tap instead of pinky isn't bad thing at all,
same as using hammer-on instead instead of bending,that's your approach
and nothing wrong there. smile.gif
But same issue as with other members,kind of hurry in playing
which leads to loosing of timing a bit.
Take it slow,you're doing fine by now,thanks for effort,well appreciated!! smile.gif

Great job guys smile.gif

I´ve been working on this one too, and it´s going pretty well. But I would like to be able to record my playing over the backing tracks so I can hear what could be better. How do you guys manage to record the bacing track?

I would have to ask you to deal this issue with members via PM,
use/download of backings is sort of prohibited at the moment.
Thanks in advance smile.gif

Gilmore,

What I do is that I record a video using the backing track, I think its better becuase the instructor can also watch what you're playing and can give you a better advice. I've done that several times and it has been very helpful for me.

Bye.

Hey Muris,

Been practicing with what little time I can get off of work, hopefully you will hear some improvement from my first attempt cause I can hear/feel it with my hands. Some muffled notes and others but it sounded okay to me.

Thanks for efforts!! smile.gif

Timing is bit better but still needs some practicing
which is what we all love to do,to practice. wink.gif
And be careful while making bends,try to hit wanted note correctly,
sometimes it's bit low or too high imho.
Taps on the bend are missed notes,try to fix that too,
rest of it is going on the right track,keep it up!! smile.gif

Hey Muris,

Thanks for the criticing. Sometimes it's hard to hear the specific parts to focus on. I checked on the bends of the notes and you were right. Also with taps on the bend, I was over exaggerating the bend. I'll keep practicing and keep you posted.

Hiya Muris,

Started learning the Steve Lukather solo from you lesson and loving it! Its the sort of stuff I want to play smile.gif

Just a couple of questions from playing the opening section;

Its prob down to more practice but I seem to have trouble holding enough sustain for the tapped bends on the 3rd string (G). Any tips?

Also on a theoretical point I've noticed some chromaic runs (3 to 4 notes) in places are these what you call passing notes? Cause some appear out of key but because you don't linger on them it sounds ok? Or because of the chord change you are playing a note from that chord?

No doubt there will be more questions as I work through it!!

Thanks

Hi Crazyfret.

About sustain on tapped bends,maybe to add bit more gain/drive?
Or maybe it needs some practicing. smile.gif

And those chromatic runs,per example frets 16,15,14 and 13 on high E over Fm chord.
If you take a look at the notes,chord AND scale played there (which is Eb major)
you'll see that passing note is 14th fret,note F# or Gb.
You said well,I'm not resting on it and notes around it are fine so it sounds ok. smile.gif

Thanks Muris for the prompt reply smile.gif

I see what you are getting at with the chromatic runs. I need to sit down and look at the relationship between the scale and the chord. Its something I need to develop, cause I don't know every scale or chord build up note for note off the top of my head wink.gif .

Thanks again smile.gif

Ok here's is where I've got up to so far. I've played upto the 8th bar just before the tricky fast run down and up the scale. I've still to get the timing right on that before I record it with the backing.

My tapped bends isn't great yet as you'll hear! rolleyes.gif

I wanna get this one right cause I'm sure it will help in all areas of my playing. I think for approx 4 hours practicing spread over 2 days I've not done too bad, (I think).

Not bad take,not at all!! smile.gif

But first of all you must have proper sound to play this kind of stuff
and to get right "feel" for it.
That means you really need to add more drive to your sound,
the way it is atm it sounds like overdriven clean
and you need a massive distortion for it. smile.gif

Hey Muris,

Thanks for your comments, you're too kind smile.gif

I see what you mean about the sound I've not quite sorted out what it sounds like through my amp speaker and how its sounds when I record to my pc.

My set up is prob a bit weird, I own a Marshall MG50DFX amp from which I take the feed from the headphone socket to my pc, (its how I am able to play over the backing track cause I take a cable from the speaker output from the pc into the back of the amp cd input)!!

Still waiting on delivery of my Podxt!! Should simplify things wink.gif

Thanks again
