I really like the tune, i dunno, it feels quite neoclassical. Also, great lesson on string skipping, you are doing a great job as an instructor, maybe drop your degree and go on to teach guitar for a living
Thanks! I would sure love to live from teaching guitar/performing/recording but first i need to finish the university and become a pro guitarist (gotta spend many more years to get there )
Nice tune as usual. But I had an idea to remove some distracting and confusing elements.
You talk alot about C# boxes and notes and stuff and it all just mashes together into one big pile of confusion so what I would like to see is all the boxes for C# tabbed out, starting from the first box to the last. Or have all the charts of the boxes on one page or something just to make it easier to get an overview.
This makes it a bit easier to look at and understand as well as practice the C# Major scale independtly of this lesson.
Otherwise really splendid lesson. Will get cracking on it the moment I get home from band practice.
Hey man! For each part there is a box illustrated below - and that is the box we use in that particular part! What's confusing?
When i tabbed the scale last time i got a comment that it would be nice to have scales illustrated! Now when i illustrated them i get a comment that it would be nice to have them tabbed. Now i am getting confused!
Sorry if i got you wrong.
Yes I also think it's much clearer this time with scale diagram!
By the way Pavel what were you studying?
Pavel, yea sorry I guess ppl like it differently
Anyway what I was trying to say was that it would be good to have all diagrams on one page (as well or just on one) so you could get an overview of the scale as a whole so you could see all boxes at the same time.
I am still studying (2nd year) informatics. I would love to study rock guitar performance at GIT in London but it's too expensive (around 10000$ a year). So right now i am simply practicing guitar and "wasting" time at the university. But i am only 19 and i hope one day i will earn enough from my guitar playing. Maybe even come to Sweden and Kris and i create a LIVE OPEN MASTERCLASS
Steelkonsum: ok i'll work on the overview and give to Kris to upload these days.
*cough* hows about you both come to say, i dunno, Scotland, maybe Edinburgh, and you hold a live masterclass there *cough*
Hehe these are some awesome ideas...! Who knows what the future holds It would be awesome if Pavel and I could a jam and record it...
About the scales: I could just put them on top of each other on the lessons main page - is that what you thought of Pavel?
Yeah that could also work fine! Let's try that!
I think you have the wrong tab with lesson number 5. correct me if Im wrong but the tab dosent go with what you are playing..It may be lesson six..Anyway Its one of the two,
Hey thanks for the tip! Will be fixed soon!
Should be fixed now!
This lesson has been very benefical. How are you achieving you're tone? The addition to Pavel @ this sight has been great. Kris when are you coming out with your next lesson. The waiting is killing me!
For me it doesnt feel like neo-classical but more of a smooth ballad that reminds me alot of Vai. I like the first half of this song(cept the fast part).
really cool lesson really helped btw it sounds a bit like canon rock to me
VinceG: This week!
Great lesson Pavel
Its something I really needed. My picking accuracy isn't all that great when im concentrating on fretting hand. I was really hoping that when i joined, there would be a lesson similar to this on here lol.
anyone having trouble downloading vids 3&4
Hey Pavel I have one quick question for you Im a little confused on were the scales are on the fretboard Im not sure where your starting at. im on #3 now and im not sure if im doing it right.
I figuared it out Thanks
Great man - cool! I am sorry - i somehow missed your question
But anyway if you got it on your own than it's great!
hey i think i tested this string skip before not exactly this exersise but this
wat settings do u use in this exercise
As usual! I don't change my sound settings at all! Never!
Usual distortion and a bit of delay to fatten the sound!
Ok, here is a copy/paste of my settings from another topic:
Here are the distortion pedal settings (from 1 to 7):
MID FREQ: 4
DISTORTION MODEL: 5
I plug it into my amp using OUT 2(MIXER). I have Marshall Valvestate AVT50 amp. So here are the settings of the amp (0-10):
(i don't have MIDDLE for the clean channel)
thanx alot pavel great lesson by da way (difficult though)
i learned it but at the last fast run i have to use pull offs on the first 3 notes to get started or i find myself messing up!
great lesson pavel!!!!! dang man i luv it... i learned it and i must say my hands have much more control now
great lesson! now i just have to get those fast sweeps in at the end
EDIT: theyre not sweeps, just faster string skipping i saw
Hi, Pavel I'm slowly getting up to speed on this, but I have a question about alternate picking. If you are soloing, playing triplets across strings, is it always down up down on the first string, then up down up on the next string?
Do you play down up down on each string?
Does that make any sense?
I always tend to stick to 100% AP. Any direction changes can slow you down so i prefer AP all the way
thanks pavel!!!!very nice melodies...
