It might be tricky if you're new to this technique...
Another great lesson Muris
Hey, Great lesson. Just curious but what type of settings do u think I should have on my amp (reverb, treble, mid,bass, distortion) that sorta thing. I just want to get a good blues sound setting (I know a lot of the sound is the way u play your guitar but i thought the settings might make a diffrence thanks.
Thanks a lot!
I had similar question in my sub-board,gear section.
Check it out,hope it'll help.
Are you using a tube screamer to get the SRV sound, its pretty authentic, you have his technique down man, great sound.
Thanks Al !!
No tube screamer...I've said this million times,only Korg Pandora PX4D
Hi Muris and thank you, a very wonderful lesson.
Best SRV lesson I've seen--I will spend some time with this one.
OH MY GOODNESS!
What does |---3---| mean?
What does L mean?
Thanks for refreshing my memory.
Check out my sub board,Robin posted fine explanation indeed.
This lesson is worthy of my first post.
THIS IS MUSIC!!! (Not that speed-thrash-noise)
Tho I hope we don't have any noise in lessons at GMC
this is so awsome i would go to bosnia and give u a hug lol
if i dident know it was you i would thougt
it was stv in the flesh ( if he still be alive)
love his music and style!! great lesson muris
!!!!!! :)you realy did it!!
Many thanks Ben,appreciate it!!
How did you make this backing track, or did you pick it up from somewhere ?
thanks, -- john
I made it by myself,of course
How? Check out my sub-board,I answered on similar questions there.
And use forum as well,you might find lots of useful things.
Oh Muris you are so great for making this lesson - SRV was the man who made me pick up an electric guitar in the first place
Thanks,just trying to do my best.
I'm loving playing this - have noticed a tab error on video 3 tab - second note on the D string should be 5th fret not 6th. I've checked it against audio. Maybe you would change that?
Thanks for the tip,will tell Kris to update it.
Great stuff Muris, sounds classy, pro, tasty amd played brill of course.
When I once read an interview with the man himself, he was saying he used 13s! He said he tuned them down for rehearsals to try and save on fingerwear. You can imagine - ouch . Some tone he got tho' eh.
On the subject of tone, your Korg Pandora/Guitar sounds are excellent man - I reckon I'll pick one up someday on the strength of hearing it on your lessons alone.
I like Korg stuff - pretty experimental I think. I have an old ('84) Korg DW8000 keyboard. It was the first keyboard to use digital soundbytes and analogue effects. It's got some really cool sounds.
I also have an old Korg Tape Delay which was pretty good, but it's been out of action for ages now. Can't get parts and all that. But I hope to fix it someday - maybe get another busted one and get the parts off it or something. It gave a subtle to huge delay sound, if a bit huge to carry too! You wouldn't fit it in your pocket that's for sure.
But I had never considered the Pandora or heard loads of reports about it. Maybe 'cos I was in Switzerland and the news doesn't travel so fast .
Anyways, I'm always in the lookout for something as classy as this. Ah roll on Christmas or something hee-hee.
Thanks for the pointer M8 and keep up the great work!
Yeah,Korg has some very interesting units on market,
Pandora PX4D is surely one of them.
I wrote review yesterday,check it out.
And thanks for your kind words!!
Just read that review Muris, it's a good one by all accounts - I didn't think the price would be that good, even better! Good tip on that stereo cable. Cheerz M
Hello Muris, you write from Venezuela, this is my first lesson complete, we welcome is excellent, I want to practice a little Jimi Hendrix, believes that you can upload something from this?
Hi to Venezuela.
Glad you like the lesson and will do some Hendrix
Really REALLY like this lesson. So well put together, backingtrack and all. Especially your playing sound as if straight from SRV's hands.
The trill-part and the quick slide to the e note on the g-string and then back again was just excellent!
How many years you been playing? even though it's the hours that count, but they're pretty much impossible to keep track of.
Appreciate it,thanks !!
Have been playing for around 13-14 years but you said it well,
it's more about hours indeed...
Oh, phew, that comforts me
I've only been playing for 2-3 years but rather intensely, so I guess I'll reach your level of skill in a decade or so.
Give it a try
Great tune, just like SRV
QUESTION: How do you get the SRV sound? what distortion sound pedal is used?
Take a better look at previous replies,it's all there.
Just got a brand new American Deluxe Strat two days ago. I doubt there is a more fitting workout for my new addition than this lesson. Fine job Muris, as always.
Congrats on your new axe!!
It'll probably fit nice with this lesson tho
Could you possibly upload the backingtrack as a mp3 so I can record it with my playing in Audacity?
Otherwise the recording gets crappy sound :s
Sorry,I don't have it on my HD anymore..
The only version of BT is here at GMC
and you'd have to ask Kris for further details.
Great SRV sounding ditty Muris!!!, One problem that I am having that maybe you can help me understand. It sounds like you are playing more than just one note on the beginning intro after the chord. Is that the raking technique you are referring to. I know it's my right hand that is screwing me up, guess I will just shut up and Plsy!!!, Again nice work.
Yeah,that's the raking
I "play" just one note but actually I'm hitting 2,3 or even more strings together.
You must have really good and smooth left hand muting to get it properly.
Practice solves everything,just like always.
Thx for the reply Muris, yeah this is tough for me to nail it just right, love it though.
Are you hitting all those single riff notes on the downstoke? I understand using alternate picking/strumming, but can't tell if it's just a sytlistic approach your using on this piece? Thanks a lot!
Very very nice in the style of lesson. Me being a huge fan of SRV really adds to the feeling. Great work
This peice is killing me, timing has to be just right or it sounds like sh*t when I play it. Though I am making progress, lol.
Yeah,timing must me tight as you said.
Let me know if you need any help here tho!!
i'm really starting to get this, I need to learn how I can get my sound into my p.c. so you can hear my progress. O how I love this peice.
Check out recording board at forum,many useful things are there
hey Muris, even though im busy practicing all your other lessons, I cant help but keep watching this video... its that good !!! =)
No harm of watching it if you like it,thanks Matt!!
very good stuff Muris I wil try to play it -) frans
Great,let me know how it's going!
Awesome lesson, kinda sounds like Cold Shot.
Hi Muris, I am new to the courses, and I was wondering if you could tell me is it simply practice to memorize the different blues scales, or is there another tip you could give me. There are three on the SRV Class from last year. So many notes. I love SRV and you would make him very proud. Christian
There is actually only ONE scaled called "blues" scale,
it's minor pentatonic with added note between 4th and 5th.
Play it a while and you'll easy memorize it.
very nice lesson muris
very good lesson!!!
Finaly! I play the whole lesson now
Thank you Muris, great lesson.
This is a great lesson Muris! For me some parts are a little bit tricky, but hopefully I'm gonna nail it soon.
Oh my giddedi-god,
I Just tried it (2hrs) and it works great!
Love SRV - now
Honestly that one just gave me a huge kick!
Everything is going more smooth now.
Man, Muris, great lesson! Sounds just like Stevie! Great bass-line in the background, too.
Just a note on a mistake I discovered in video 5, 5th note should be 8b, NOT 7b.
Spot on, it's a mistake in tab, will be fixed asap,
thanks for input and welcome to GMC.
Amazing as always. I've always wanted to get that nice SRV grit going, I just need to get the raking down without my notes sounding weak....
Dude you blues-ROCK! Great licks and phrasing - lots of fun.
nailed! the tone is perfect too
I'm 'onna steal some licks from this one! Great one!!
Damn good work, helped me alot..
