will be adding a detailed explanation after this later tonight explaining my note choice and what i was doing where. I will be doing rock part tonight or tomorrow as the bends in this shredded my fingers in my many takes to try to make sure I got everything down I wanted. Nothing really fancy but my arpeggio work which isnt really fast but has some tricky finger work. I also did a rhythm take just so people can see the chords I would choose if I was doing the rhythm part. I figured the rhythm students could take a peak there and see what chords are being used. You can correct me if youd like. Im pretty sure im playing the major7ths correct.
Guess well do the essential run today for the first time in 3 weeks. Groceries. And a quick stop at the music store that opened this week as we hit phase 1 (little premature imo for phase 1 but I'm out-of picks lol) when I get home ill be setting up to play.
Gotten some streams on my material this week. This weekend during my stream im gonna play song of these songs. Im also gonna do a 25 minute improv in honour of a friend of the ghost inside who passed. They are doing things with the number 25 In his honor. Altho I dont know him..any loss is a big one. if you have anything that deals with 25 tag the band so they know you care too.
You can stream the entire album here
Viewer discretion advised. explicit lyric content. Quality wise this is the best those songs will get without the original guitars.
Sidenote. the guy who almost sold me his revenger delisted it due a passing in his family. pray when he's feeling better he'll go through me. If so I may be able to re-record some songs again.
to celebrate the idea of having my guitar back in my hands ill be jamming on my instagram soon. Little back story for those of you who weren't here last year.
Had a really bad experience with a guy I moved in with where he sold a guitar for drugs while i was at work. I then moved all my stuff out that weekend.. or tried to. He started an altercation and I called 911. They told us to separate til cops came so I left the house with my guitars still inside along with other possessions. Long story short I only got 1 back. The revenger was my FIRST real guitar. Itll be nice if I can really get it back.
The mixing for my next set of songs went much better then these ones. I did not hear that same cracking. This could be for many reasons. Both were recorded at different times so its definitely what I think it was. But well see. Going forward gonna start using the compressor much more I think its mainly the stretching of the dbs.
Music finally on my own spotify profile. Link is here.
I'll write a brief explanation. These songs were written over 10 years ago on guitar pro. The music was slightly modified when I started at this school. The lyrics are as real as it gets. More to come..
Been watching a few fan reaction videos and I'm debating on doing a couple myself. Mainly to find new bands. I'll do any song. If I know the song I'll still do it but I'll do it a little different. Preferably songs that include guitar so I can keep it related to the school. But let me know if this interests you guys.
Alright time for day 2 of self written play throughs. Today I'll be playing songs off the album I wrote after I joined the school. More song structure and flow in a lot of these songs. The 2 I wont play is simply cause i just tuned this guitar for drop c. Altho it took 5 minutes I'm not sure I wanna go back yet.
