Excellent - we needed a Paul Gilbert lesson! Very useful speed patterns!
- how would a mere mortal like me play something like this Muris?! Forget about it!
brilliant love it
OH finally!! i ve been waiting for this since so long!
Amazing lesson, thank you!
Great stuff Muris!! I can see many Gilbert's licks played perfectly. Good Job!
Muris you wont believe this...
I was visiting GMC to request a lesson in the style of PG and guess what? I see it on the main page. Thanks a lot man and great job covering his style. Now all i can say is "I WANT MOAR."
Appreciate it guys,thanks!!
Jeff,try with some slower backing I provided,it's fun,believe me!!
Oh and i have a question (there will be many more since im seriously practicing this).
In vid 1 can we barre the last 4 strings instead of using our thumb?
ah ha! I`ve found my next lesson! gr8 stuff
This sounds awesome! Great job, Muris!
smoking hot. nice job muris
First SRV, now this?!
MURIS BE PRAISED.
Awesome Muris, it´s so amazing.
Thanks for this lesson.
I think mattacuk will love this more than anyone
sweet, dont love you as much as jerry with his nuno lesson but close. thanks this site is the best learning place
POW! that lession was awsome
Very cool licks Muris.
Very nice Muris!!This was some really great playing.You always seem to meet the gmc member's request and thats awesome!!
I'm so glad you liked it guys,thanks!!
Dan,being here as an instructor as awesome and I'll keep to fill any request if possible!!
Jammer,yeah,you could use barre but it'll be hard to do muting,try it and you'll see.
Tho I'm SUUURREE Paul would play it with the thumb.
This is really cool stuff. thanks.
dude... this is unbelievable... AWESOME!!!!!!!
what a SUPERB Lesson!!!!
awesome job muris!!
Muris, you are a guitar playing MACHINE!
well done and awesome muris
Thanks,thanks,just trying my best!
I'll do my best to learn this!
You did it again! Another awesome lesson!
Damn Muris, your speed and accuracy are frightning!
Thanks for this video, this is so awesome and Paul Gilbert is a great guitar player. Any chance of more of these?
The greatest! No other words needed!
great muris, but i cant do the thumb thing
fantstic love that style great work muris
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!! This is my DREAM lesson.....Muris you have a friend for LIFE!!!!!
That's great Matt,thanks!!!
Bosnia and UK aren't so far away after all,right?
Not at all !!
Awesome Muris , you are such a great muscician and an unbelivable guitarrist. And thanks for the slow backing tracks.
Muris im getting this down. Can you please make a series of paul gilbert lesson? (too great to be satisfied with one).
Im lick hungry (metal-gear user, dont get any ideas:)
I just promised the same in my sub-board and here it is again,
will do more of PG lessons,no worries!!
thanks muris i really enjoyed this one. Can you do a more racer x styled one?
Oh my, that string skipping thing in the beginning of part 3 three is soo cool! Learning it now!
Im really impressed with the attention to detail here. I like the use of index,ring and pinky just like paul does!
what brand guitar is that?
my guitar teacher here in Israel has a custom guitar "factory" (the guitars are handmade) and my guitar looks almost exactly like yours.. except the pickups...
Just AMAZING !!!!! love this lesson
Thanks to all!!
This guitar is handmade too,from custom shop MKGuitars,Bosnia.
Let me know if you want some,will try to get you discount.
gah you are a god!
Ohh no, Y.J.M is a god
This is amazing, Muris! I'm not that huge a fan of Gilbert, but these licks are great, I will dafenately (I'm running out of misspellings!) be putting these to use!
how's going with the second Paul Gilbert lesson, Mr.Varajic ?
Will be there soon Mr. Peter
Muris this is great. I got a question . For the second video in where the speed lick begins , what is your thumb postion at that point ? I kinf of angle my fingers and my thumb a little bit, Is that correct ?
My thumb is almost at the top but many players would have it around middle in same situation.
It's sort of a stretch but looks like I have a mile long fingers or som .
Now that I notice it you do have big fingers
Thanks for the help
Can't help myself,you're welcome tho!!
muris, any tips for doing pinch harmonics?
ur pinching it with ur pick and touch it with side of ur thumb.. right ?
well, im practicing but it's hard to get a loud note of pinch harmonics..
so.. any tips.. ?
I use side of thumb AND the pick.
Pick hits string while side of the thumb slightly touches string.
Adding more distortion and high EQ shall help as well.
i dont get it..
u slightly thouch the string first, and then hit the string..?
is that what u meant ??
how is that possible.. ???
if i touch the string first, then i cant possibly hit the string...
im still guite not sure what ur trying to show..
but i got it by my own way..
(to get loud note)
oops quite *
oh.. 'my way' was what u were trying to show me..
Andrew has larger vocabulary than I do
Brushing is much better than touching.
Those are actually 2 actions in 1,
brushing with thumb and hitting the string with the pick.
Lesson 3, tab, notes 9 and 10 show the two D's on fret 10 low E string, but I see you play the open D which is easier. We are watching like a hawk.
Hmm,I surely play D twice on low E with the thumb,
has much more bass that way and easier to palm mute for sure.
My fault - I was watching the fingers and not paying attention to that sneaky thumb. Great stuff.
No problem,it's hidden card,sort of joker
Myself, like others, have problems with the thumb stuff - maybe depends on type of neck - anyway in this key one can hit the D open string for these 2 notes. Whatever works....
Yeah, it works note wise but not tone wise.
D string is a lot more thiner than low E,lacking of bass.
That's why I used it like this.
OK - lesson 4 - first tab line - there are 6 too many notes - the 10p 9p 7 10p 9p 7 at the end.
Yeah,there are,my mistake.
Anyhow,more is better than less,right?
Thanks for noticing tho!!
Oh boy - it's the slowed down version that's wrong - should have four parts - but only three -so the tab is right. I know you do this on purpose just to mess with us.
No purpose,trust me,guess I was bit too tired to count well.
Tab is fine,I add extra 6 notes.
Gonna keep them safe and put in next lesson,just looking for the right spot.
I hope I am not too critical - I mostly play by ear - but I do read the tab to make sure I am on track - and this confused me a bit.
Ohh,no problem at all.
There's already a thread about that video at my sub-board.
And I'm glad that you're working on the lesson,
being able to notice it is the best prove for that!!
in video4, ru actually pulling off with ur pinkie and ring finger.. ???
that's so hard...
it's really hard to pull off with the pinkie..
any tips.. ? or just practice..
Yeah,those are pull-offs with using both pinky and ring finger.
Pinky is the weakest of all and practicing this will surely gives it more power
and stronger action.
You can avoid it by using ring and middle fingers for first pull-offs
but I suggest to try it my way,will be worthing.
SICK solo, Muris, that's the stuff I want to learn, cheers!
Thanks Paul,have fun with it!!!
On the Guitar you are using for this lesson, what model of Stan's pickups are you using for the bridge position. I would say it's either a Zen or Scorpion, but could be wrong.
It's Rogue,really high output.
muris, im practicing. but i need some help or some tips in part 4, (video4)
i cant get any speed on that prat..
is practicing with metronom best way.. ?
HELP ME !!!
That;s bit tricky part Peter,specially with added art. harmonics.
Pull-offs,need lots of strength for it.
Just practice it,won't come over night,
and yeah,using metronome is always great idea.
This is an excellent PG style example! Thanks a lot! Just one question. What's your sound setup?
Korg Pandora PX4D into audio card,that's gear for all lessons
This is honestly amazing! So much to take from this lesson. Thanks Muris.
Thanx a lot Muris!! Its an amazing lesson!!
And hi everybody in this super site
and greetings from vienna!
SWEET vid man!!!!!!!!!! this is a must learn...... Can't get enough of Paul
(sick guitar by the way)
on the 1st lesson last line
there are only 5 lines i'm lost.
GREAT LESSON THOUGH!!!!!!!
PAUL ROCKS AS DO YOU
sorry figured it out
I thought I fixed that!!
Thanks tho,glad you like it!!!
Scarified By You Muris :-D
Great Lesson, Love what you did
I got a theoric question, when the root note is in C or G or Bb, you still use your scale in the key of D
well my question is it possible, or is it good, to change the key of your scale when the note changes too ?
As you can see,I'm using 2 scales here,D minor and D Dorian.
Both are from minor "family" of modes and they are in the same key,key of D minor.
I have same problems to follow you when saying C as a root.
You think of C chord in progression,right?
If yes,you can play 7 chords while using one scale cause those chords are made
on 7 degrees of scale,simple as that.
very good lesson 8)
Thank you,thank you very much!!!
why are you only playing with three fingers at the end??....errr...nvm...your pinky is just moving too fast for the camera to catch
Nice work on this one!!
And it's not about speed or pinky but fps
Unbelievable lesson, Muris you rock!!
Feel free to jump into my sub-board if you have any questions tho.
125 bpm are really hard! but it's great fun anyway to play the whole thing at 110 or even 90 bpm. I've played it over and over again and I still like it, thank you, Muris
That's great Peter!!
Feel free to post video of your playing in my sub-board,practicing section.
Perhaps I can give you an advice or som?
Great lesson. Really powerful riffs and notes, kinda makes you feel like a guitargod while playing it
You do know there's only ONE guitargod,right??
went back to practice on 70 bpm today. The important things in this piece are tone and timing, aren't they? So, it's a long way...
But one of these days I'm gonna be the guitar devil and I will play it, accurate in tone and timing. Just another million repetitions...
Tone,timing,accuracy,it's all important,yeah.
Just take your time and practice it slowly
using tempo that fits you nicely.
Later on you'll speed it up without even noticing!
Gilbert teaches on this site? Wow, hi Paul...
Great lesson. My forearm is pumped and burning from all the fingering. I definitely needed something like this. Looking forward to going through your other lessons once I can get through this one.
That's great,let me know if you need any help,
welcome to GMC tho!
hello new member and muris thanks . first off your lessons have got me practicing again [alot] and am not close to your level but in 8 when you slow it down you play an extra six notes with the timing these notes work with the full video but i can't play it as fast but it looks like you drop to your d string three times
so cool!!! great job Muris!
jstcrsn,you are absolutely right,just follow tab and you'll be fine,
there are 6 extra notes in video,my bad.
This lesson is actually what got me into Paul Gilbert. I love it, and now that I can do Pinch Harmonics, I hope to learn the lesson all the way through.
Glad to hear,keep me updated on your progress!
I have a question. Does is matter if you switch up the way you play the lesson? For instance, if you change strings, I just use tapping instead. I'll hit the same note, just on a different string.
Well it does mater...and doesn't,at the same time.
I tried to cover Paul's style here as close as possible at some point.
So adding tap instead of slide etc might not sound like Paul but you'll still have the same notes.
Try it both ways I would say.
Alright, thank you for the advise.
THe only think i change on this lesson, in stad of playing the 2th video part on E-B i play it on B-G.But sounds the same.
If it sounds the same..it's the same
Another great lesson - It helped me play part 6 a lot faster when I started thinking of it as the base position pentatonic scale instead of individual patterns, still a tough lick. Thanks Muris
Glad you're having some fun with it,rock on!!
hi there! it was awesome,,, really sounds like PG style
" Jeff - how would a mere mortal like me play something like this Muris?! Forget about it! "
I was just thinking that as well lol.
Never seen so many comments. There is an error on the tab (section 8). First 6-tuplet should be played 3 times, not 2, as you do on the recording.
Of course Fkalich,
we discussed about it quite ago,
I made mistake in slow video,tab is fine actually.
I hope you'll be able to forgive me like everyone else tho.
Wow! Some of there licks I even find more useful than PG's himself! (and I say that after just watching most of "Get Out of my Yard")...
Wow. This lesson has gotten hundreds of comments. And they're well-deserved for sure!
It' s incredible!
Just stumbled upon this one now through Smells practice agenda. This lesson is absolutely incredible and excellent!
There is no way in h**l however that I can pull something like this one off Muris
I will give it a go anyway and then see if my fingers and hands are intact after trying this.
molim te murise reci mi sta da uradim! Najtanja zica na gitari mi je tako labava kad stavim zicu 0.9 , pa sam kupio 0.10 i bolje je sad ali opet veoma lako pada zica s praga dole i to me jako nervira,mozes li mi reci sta da uradim?
gibsonmatte ,let me know if you need any help with it, I'll try to assist.
Sto se tice E zice,bilo bi dobro da odneses gitaru nekome da je pogleda.
Naime,zna se desiti da vrat nije dobro "balansiran",
tanka E zica bude preblizu ruba fingerboard-a i onda se desava to sto se desava,
zica spada sa vrata.
to je to sto si rekao,blizu je ruba i lako spada s vrata,i nosio sam je u brothers and sisters gdje sam je i kupio,on je samo nesto uradio malo s floydom zategao ga izgleda i stavio mi 0.10 al opet spada!Ako znas nekog ko bi to znao uraditi molim te reci mi,jer gitaru sam platio 1850KM...
Mislim da cak i sam mozes to popraviti.
Otpusti zice skroz,zatim otpusti sarafe koji drze vrat,
povuci vrat par milimetara prema gore(da se balans vrati na svoje),
cuvaj vrat u tom novom polozaju i dotegni sarafe.
zaboravio sam reci da je vrat neckthru,sad ne znam ima li to veze,da l da radim to sto si mi rekao da pomjeram vrat,hoce li imati efekta?
Nisam siguran kako to ide sa neckthru vratovima,nisam expert zaista,
odnesi u Borthers il u Rassu pa neka pogledaju,
oni se time bave,ja bas i ne.
I just wanna say thank you Muris for everything you do for us,for this beautifull lessons,I hope that you will one day become one of the greatest guitarist of all time!
That was very kind,cheers.
I'm stilllllllll working on this lessssson. Hhahha I practice every day for like 25 minutes on this lesson. That alternate picking, string skipping, wide interval, pentatonic run is killlllling me.
It's an awesome lesson though, I will master it one day!
Practice will make it perfect, dont give up!!
Aw man that was sensational, your tone was beautiful
Thank you Danny.
wow ! Im loving it!
Great lesson Muris!
awesome!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds very simular to paul gilbert percfect!
wicked tune nailed it in one
