Also, that song is a great example of using double-stops to write riffs. Randy Rhoads did that a lot, too, along with MANY others. I focused on spicing up lead playing in the vid, but writing riffs is huge, Dan! Thanks! 0 likes October 29, 2018 at 11:37 pm #180251 Sayonil MitraParticipant Ed, thanks a lot for this one. I completely forgot to play double stops for at least a year. Somehow it faded away from my playing. It sounds super cool on acoustic too. and it sounds dope on your guitar. I am trying out this right now. 1 person likes this November 4, 2018 at 4:07 pm #180552 Ids SchiereParticipant I’m not entirely sure whether we’re still doing this but here’s my latest one. It’s basically me teaching a John Mayer lick. It’s also a great example of ending on the Major 3rd and using a major 7th in your soloing that works like treat! 2 likes November 4, 2018 at 4:10 pm #180553 Jak AngelescuParticipant Great work, Ids! I left a comment for you on YouTube 🤗 i’m not sure if this is still a thing but I think it’s great we continue to do this with or without Syn sharing them. 1 person likes this November 4, 2018 at 4:12 pm #180555 Ids SchiereParticipant Thanks Jak! I’m not nescecarily doing them for Syn to share my lessons it’s more that it seems like the lessons seems to be drying up a little bit. 0 likes November 5, 2018 at 1:41 am #180567 Rod AzeiteParticipant So sorry to hype up this topic again then leave it hanging! Turns out a 4 day weekend isn’t a lot of time if you schedule everything humanely possible for it. I haven’t forgotten about what I said I’d share 1. Switching from clean/acoustic to distorted/electric solos for a different vibe (got a lot of examples so I may do more than one minute) 2. Not being scared to use the lower strings to add groove (at this point just finding/writing licks to use as examples) Something else came up in brainstorming and I’ll share that too: The importance of practice (NOT learning) through muscle memory instead of constantly looking down at your picking or fretting hand Won’t set a date to work on them, I’ll just try my best everyday. Look forward to seeing more of your guys’s tips and tricks! 0 likes November 12, 2018 at 3:35 pm #180962 Ids SchiereParticipant I made another one. If I talk quietly it’s probably because I did not sleep that well last night and I’m kinda tired at the moment 😅 This is on using your fingers instead of a pick when you solo and the benefits it may have 1 person likes this November 14, 2018 at 4:57 am #181006 Alina PetersonParticipant Well, often I play around and have a great solo somehow and a hard time remembering it later. -.- I feel so stupid in such moments. Does it get better with time? I´m unexperienced with creating own music. 0 likes November 14, 2018 at 6:51 am #181007 Ekrem Taha ÜnlüParticipant If you want to remember just record it. But u don’t need to feel stupid. That’s normal and your memory get better in time. Creating own music is another topic. Just play and try different things and combine them like a puzzle! 1 person likes this November 14, 2018 at 11:15 am #181009 Ids SchiereParticipant Like Ekrem says the only way to remember it is to either record it or write it down. Personally I tend to remember the melodies but forget everything that goes around the melody(like the shreddy bits and embellishments and stuff like that). It definetely gets better over time but remembering anything is repetition in the end. 2 likes Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 181 through 195 (of 233 total) ← 1 … 12 13 14 … 16 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
