amazing!! exactly what ive wanted
I wanna have your guitar's children.
This is the sexiest piece of music I've heard you play. Absolutely fantastic.
Hahahahaha cool! Thanks!
That's the song i am planning to extend and record on my first solo album in a few years. I hope i explained the theory part clearly...
Enjoy learning this piece!
Thanks Pavel - this is a really inspiring lesson. I love your tone - really gritty but clean at the same time somehow. I'm trying to get something similar and I can hear delay and a little chorus or flange - are you using anything else?
Thanks a lot!
I use the clean channel, single-coil pickup, and delay. The chorus you hear is actually the backing track created with synths sample. My guitar goes only through delay.
please! more like this!! this is exactly what i need
Hey Pavel,is there a place at GMC to go to learn different chord shapes?
OMG, talk about a dream lesson. I was just thinking I needed to learn more chords.
Talking about chord shapes - i'll work on a lesson to work on as much shapes as i can and also explain how to build chords.
yeah ^^^ that would just be amazing
Yh! Ive always wanted to learn all the different chord shapes and how to actually build a chord.
Plz do that lessoN!
AWESOME lesson! Thanks.
yes please do a lesson on chord shapes...lol make it top of ur list
That would be great . Thanx.
good piece of music. Felt a little indian like to me. reminded me of some steve vai work. really good piece. gotta ask, did you write this after beeing inspired by a song or was this something from your emotions that you translated into music?
You noticed that right! At the moment i was composing that piece i was heavily inspired by Steve Vai in general, not by a particular song. I was on a trip with my father to another country and i didn't even have an amp with me - just the electric guitar so i composed this song barely hearing what it sounds like. Later when i got home and plugged in the amp, added some delay and said: "Damn, this sounds cool!"
Hey Pavel I was wondering if you could make a jazz lesson for us. Not Jazz Fusion. Just jazz. If that's possible. Thanks.
Wow, Thanks a ton, even though I didn't actually learn the lesson (don't fret I intend on in someday) But I went through and learned all the chords you showed us, and made some super cool chord progressions
I dont understand what the "x" exactly represent.
I dont get the sound. Do you mute with your right or with you left hand or with both?
yeah, i cant get it either!
The "x" means a DEAD NOTE - so you fret the notes you want to play but you slightly release the strings and when you strum it with the right hand you mute the strings together with the strum. It's a cool trick to use when you are creating rythm patterns on the acoustic guitar.
very nice stuff here pavel. Keep up the good work
Damn - another awesome sounding lesson. How long have you been playing Pavel? Great stuff you got there.
i realise it a bit hard on the fingers but great song...
I've been playing for 8 years now. 4 years acoustic guitar and classical music, and 4 years electric guitar.
Pavel, there's a little mistake. When you explain the fifth part you say "because F major chord consists of F#, A#, C#". It should be F#, isn't it?
Oh right, you mean the text explanation. Yeah ofcourse it should be the F#.
By the way, it's great that you've also attached a Guitar Pro tab here. It helps a lot!
Pavel, can you explain plz how is it possible to make the last hammer-on note sound so clearly after playing a chord (section 5)?
I practice a lot of legato and hammer-ons became very natural to me. It has a lot to do with single finger control. We all work on making our fingers synchronized but at the same time you msut work on full control of each finger separately. That's where legato technique kicks in.
I have no big advice except for: "Practice legato - especially with pinky!"
Another great lesson...definatly one of the best one this site. And thank you so much for adding the GP-Tab.
Wow, what a great lesson!!!!
Wow, this is awsome!
Where can I find more chord shapes?
I've learned it in just 1 day !!!
Next stop, mastering it xD
pfff.. Simple E major he says.. ARGH, MY WRIST !! lol
Hahahahaha hey when you master this you'll gain tons on your finger strength and stamina!
Yeah i believe so too !!
Right now my pinky is also numb because i'm not used to use it that much and so intense on the strings.
(played for 7 hours straight)
I really love this melody so i'll just ignore the pain Thnx for the lessons !!!
Reminds me of some opeth (Masters Apprentice (end)), BEAUTIFUL! Man you're amazing
fantastic! ive perfected all of it except for the intro! i just cannot get the rythem down exactly the right way! still trying
jeez i got it now
Cool! Can you record it for us to see it or hear it?
hey pavel you are just amazing..what kind of program do you use to put the drums and all that? do you have a sintheziser? which one? thanks
Thanks man, i am glad you like it!
For drums i use XLN Addictive Drums VSTi plug-in. Bass -> Spectrasonics Trilogy, orchestra and similar stuff -> Miroslav Philharmonik. For a sequencer i use Cubase SX3.
I have a MIDI keyboard which works through USB. It's an M-Audio Keystation 49e.
thanks pavel..i ve been playing for 10 years and u can play 10000 times better..i should just burn my guitar and stop playing..i have no talent hehe
It only depends on how you practice. If you just learn random songs you can't have progress. I've been killing myself with exercises for 5 years. If you stick to GMC and work on technique i am sure you can do it.
pavel i am sorry..but maybe you can help me..i have no idea on how to record a backing track music. i have adobe audition 1.5 but i dont know where to go next..if u can breafly tell me how you set it up i will be greatful thank you
Audition can't use VST samples as far as i know so you'll need some Sequencer which can work with MIDI tracks: CubaseSX or Reaper for example. Than you'll need some VST samples for Drums, bass guitar and instruments you want.
In sequencer you create a MIDI track, than it's really simple to edit the track and write your music in it, than just apply a sound sample to it and it will play exactly what you have written, with the sample you want.
Also make sure to read the RECORDING FORUM, it has loads of info on samples, mixing and this kind of stuff.
Have fun and shoot if you got more questions!
thank you so much for your help master~!
nice lesson Pavel!!!
Sometime I miss Your Lessons
this composition is amazing
