I really like this one! Good job
Very nice Pavel, I like the style and the selection of licks to work through!
Excellent. GP5-Tab, 3 Backing-Tracks, Close-Up Videos for both hands many diffrent technics and I love the sound. I'm perfectly happy.
could you tell what scale is being used? thanks
E-pentatonic and E-Major!
My advice is not to bother yourself with scales, but learn boxes by ear and learn what scale pattern you can use at certain place.
I don't say scales are useless - scales are VERY IMPORTANT - but by forcing scales you limit your imagination. All my lessons you hear here at GMC were written without even thinking about scales.
The only thing you should learn are scale patterns. It may look difficult right now but later you'll realise how easy it is.
thanks for the advice! awesome lesson btw
wow!thats like exactly the kind of music i play!gonna learn that one!
Great! I can't get enough blues lessons. Thanks for the advice too!
All I can say is
I really damn damn like this 1.... This solo is really slow that everyone could play it.. not tat advance.. But, it is melodic..it Rocks ! Keep this kind of solo coming..Pavel.. i REALLY LIKE IT
Hahaaaaaa cool guys i am glad you like it! Thanks a lot!!
ya savage lesson. soul touching, especially 22 fret bend and tapping. thx
I'm having troublw with the timing of the tapping sevtion. Is there any pasues at all and shoul I just pkay it through and see how it sounds.
oh yea played it slow but just sounds weird.
sorry for bad spelling. I was typing fast>
If you saw the GP5 tab - the tapping part is played in triads - so it's 3 notes per beat.
I don't understand?
I'm new to that whole TRIADS thing
Dude,Pavel that F'n rocks man thats exactly the sound i love to hear, have you ever thought about looking up some Pantera stuff I think youd nail it,your one of the greatist guitar players ive ever seen keep the blues stuff coming man
@beebonumma1 - TRIAD means 3 notes are played on 1 beat - so if we have the whole bar in triads it looks like this:
|--------1 BAR --------|
I II III IV
1-2-3 1-2-3 1-2-3 1-2-3
You count 3 notes on one metronome beat.
@FaithfullyForgotten: thats a huge compliment and a great motivation for me, man! Thanks a lot!
Actually i used the wrong word - it's not TRIAD but 3-tuplete! Sorry everyone! I am typing this from my university, and i have some stupid class now so i am a bit confused
So wherever i said TRIAD in my posts here - it should be 3-tuplete. 3-tuplete means to play 3 notes per beat.
Triad reffers to major or minor triad and goes with creating chord.
Sorry for confusing you here! I must have some good sleep
Good fix! But it dosen't make a difference for me
So how I can do three notes w/ the metronome if there's only 2 notes in your tapping section for every.......uh....sort of every actual tap there's only 2 notes for every one so how coud I fit 2 into 3?
You need to play 3 notes on one beat. Than you have 12 notes in one bar (4 beats).
Try to watch the video and count the notes on one beat and you'll understand it.
Great lesson!I love the sound from the tapping.Overall a great lesson.I've enjoyed learning it.Keep it up
that slow taping is so great ;D
Pavel, new to the site, and guitar in general and this is one of the first lessons I've been studying as I love metal, and I love blues, so naturally a hybrid of both is very appealing to me.
Anyways, any chance you could give some insight on how you came up with this? I've been very interested in improvising & coming up with melodies and can come up with some interesting sounding licks with bends, hammers, pull-offs, etc playing around with scales, however they always lack the quality that I see in this lesson. The licks in this lesson seem to always resolve to a similar theme, for instance the 10br 8 10~ flows very nicely together and I hear something similar throughout the lesson...
Any tips or insight on how you came up with it? Certain note progression? Or just the same intervals between notes, or note timing that makes it flow so well?
Sorry, I'm sure this is something very complicated for you to explain, if you even understand what I'm trying to ask... Thanks
Hey man i understand what you mean!
It's actually very simple - every song has the KEY you are playing in! For example this one is in key of E-Major and phrases usually resolve into a tonic (or root) note which is E. When i am playing stuff like this i usually tend to finish the phrase in the root note. That way the phrase sounds finished.
As you said - you are new to guitar - when i started playing i couldn't improvise at all so don't worry about it. Just learn as much lessons as you can and one day you'll see you can improvise much better than you think you can!
That's what MASTERING the guitar is about. Practice, play someone's stuff, practice again and you'll just notice your improvement through the time you spend here at GMC!
And one more thing - noone can teach you how to improvise - that's why it is called IMPROVISATION - it's something you'll have to master on your own - actually discover it inside you!
Awesome, thank you... really enjoy your lessons.
I love GMC
that all i have to say about that
Pavel great lesson man.
I don't understand reverse bends. Do you just bend up then back down?
It's actually "bend/release" - not reverse bend!
But you got the idea right - you bend it and then release!
Pavel, Kris, I do 1 hour of left hand drills/scales with metrnome(120 to 150 bpm), sencond hour starts with Blues 1 and slow backing, and learning blues 2 and 3. I'm thinking about the Metal Blues lesson to stay challenged. I'm also learning some Hendrix songs. A good two hour work out at the end of my day. Why am I doint it?? Only the future will tell. g
OH NO! I'practicing Blues 1,2,3 and moving on to METAL BLUES! AGHHHHH1
By far the most challenging to date.
One of my favorite lessons here no doubt!
Lets see some more Kirk H. solo's!
just finished learning this one, absolutely beautiful, and my first tapping ever!! Your playing style is very compatable with my hands and ear I think. I notice some of your runs are similar to classical melodies in some of my pieces.
Hey Pavel do you think you could post the chords for the backing track so I can play this with a friend?
Here, this is just a rhythm guitar, slowed down, so you can also practice learning stuff by ear
Hope it helps
beautiful tapping part- one can see that speed is not everything.
good job m8!
hey Pavel!!!great lesson!!!and beutifull melody...
Quote Pavel; "The only thing you should learn are scale patterns."
could you maybe elaborate on that i don't quite understand what you mean
Great lesson! What guitar are you playing?
