Your tone was great and you did a good job! Also, very nice guitar! You mentioned Tremonti is your guitar idol, is that his custom PRS? Also, what camera did you record with? The video looked very clear. 1 person likes this January 4, 2019 at 9:11 am #182787 Vanyo NikolovParticipant Who also like this song? Cover by me 3 likes January 4, 2019 at 10:30 am #182789 Dominik GräberParticipant I thought I haven’t uploaded anything in quite some time so I made a video of one of my trainings / playing sessions. This is my first ever full cover I uploaded and a one take!! Bullet for my Valentine – Waking The Demon Waking The Demon – Onetake As this is literally the second time I played the song front to back and the very first time to the backing track I messed up quite a few parts. But I have a hell of fun with this song. 4 likes January 4, 2019 at 12:04 pm #182795 Julie QueslinParticipant @kevin I looove it ! You’re very creative, keep going ! (Love your guitar) @Vanyo Nice cover 🙂 @dominik It’s really cool if you have fun with this song. Just try to work on your guitar sound (maybe this is the video, I’m not sure) 😉 2 likes January 4, 2019 at 12:14 pm #182796 Kevin KwasneskiParticipant @dominik Gräber I was headbanging at 30 sec in nice job!!! @Aileé Guerra Aréizaga, Nope it is a PRS S2 Custom 22. The Tremonti model has a different neck profile that didnt feel good to me. And I have a Canon 60D DSLR camera that I used for that video @Vanyo Nikolov Sounds awesome!!! And whats that electric behind you? 2 likes January 4, 2019 at 12:28 pm #182798 Vanyo NikolovParticipant @kevin Kwasneski That’s my Cort X6 RMS, you can see in my videos in youtube channel 🙂 Thanks to all 🙂 0 likes January 4, 2019 at 12:32 pm #182799 Dominik GräberParticipant @julie there is definetly nothing wrong with the guitar sound 🙂 The EMGs + Boss amp deliver a sound really close to the bfmv recordings. It is my sloppy playing that you are hearing plus it being recorded with a phone leaning to my amp. I want to work on that song and record a higher quality cover anyway 😉 @kevin thanks! That song is a banger^^ 0 likes January 4, 2019 at 12:43 pm #182800 Ezequiel RomankoParticipant hey whats going on guys? i want to post one of my own songs i made it on my home so don’t expect pro audio quality but i did my best hope you like it losing my hope demo 3 likes January 4, 2019 at 12:59 pm #182801 Dominik GräberParticipant Hey @ezequiel that sounded awesome!

I’ve been working on Major scales for the last 3 weeks, using the 6 shapes all over the fretboard. (CA[A+G]GED) Practicing with the following exercises helped me get a better handle on the Major scale. -Warm up with lesson 6! -Play the chord shape and its corresponding scale shape. Do this on every (CAGED) shape to cover the entire fretboard. -Play the scale horizontally, one string at a time. -Target the root, third, and fifth. Alternatively, pay close attention to the scale degree you are playing and how it wants to resolve to the 1st,3rd,or 5th. -Practice the 2 shapes (CAGED) found on the same position, for example, E shape and A shape. That will allow you to alternate between two different keys on the same position. -Target the roots of both keys, then target the thirds, then the fifths. This week I am showcasing my progress with an improv where I alternate between the C Major & F Major scales, changing scale every two bars. I am targeting the root, third or fifth of each scale to end my phrases at the beginning of the chord change. Next week, I will continue with the lessons. 4 likes January 4, 2019 at 8:40 pm #182812 Calvin PhillipsParticipant Very nice melody. Simple but so much flavour. To me it all sounds like the same scale so you mixed them together very well. Keep pushing! I used to start with a routine too.. did the caged system twice and whatnot. Been a while since I’ve really played it out.. but soon you’ll figure out the entire shape of every chord you want once you get the starting point. You’ll always find the finish you want. The beauty of it all. Love your tone too. 1 person likes this January 5, 2019 at 3:30 pm #182840 Aileé Guerra AréizagaParticipant Thank you very much @calvin! I appreciate it. One of the goals I’m working towards is precisely playing with a lot of flavour, my favourite players are very melodic. This two scales share many notes in common, with the exception of Bb on the F Major scale, so it’s quite easy to use them together. The only note to avoid would the be B natural belonging to the C Major scale, because it clashes with F Major (produces a tritone). All the other notes sound good in both keys. 0 likes Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 61 through 75 (of 119 total) ← 1 … 4 5 6 … 8 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
