Warmness on the soul (with backing track)

Figured I should probably try it with the backing track and standing up....😬
Nice! Try to hold the vibrato for the duration of the note, it seems like you do vibrato in the beginning and than just hold the note without the vibrato. It sounds great already but if you start doing that it will sound even better!

Thanks ids !!! I’ve noticed it’s harder to do standing up 😅 there’s a video on my insta where it think I did the vibrato a bit better, but I wanted to stand for the mama cat lol.

speaking of standing, why IS it so much harder to play that way ? I’d assume just position of them hands and things being a bit more stretched out than when sitting right ?

Usually your guitar is at a different height compared to sitting(we all want to be as badass as Slash so we put the strap too low 😜). It's also a stability thing, when you're sitting it's pretty stable on your lap bit when standing it can dangle about if you even move a little bit.

🤣 yes slash is the coolest ! I’ve read that you should adjust your strap so the guitar will hang when standing where it hits your body when you’re sitting but....it’s entirely too tight and high when I tried it lol.

☺ Thank you Jak ! I really do need to try and stand a bit more. I noticed it definitely sounded better when I was sitting down lol but like you’ve always said, nobody gets on stage and sits down 😂
