Didn't realize it ended so fast, pretty weak ending. I was gong to redo it, but it's cool, tomorrow is another day. Sure is fun having something to stick to. Had a lot of cool things while practicing/warming up before recording this. Didn't record it though :'( Oh ya, I tried to add some other techniques into the solo like palm mutes.
As is probably pretty clear I lost track of where the hell I was in the second half. Also, every chord lasts 1 bar longer than Instinctly expect it to be so it's a bit of a pain to improvise over but well that's what practice is for. Now it's off to the gym to throw some weights at people out of frustration 🤪
I wanted to share this with you because I‘ve incorporated a lot of Synyster-esque economy picking ideas into this! :)
A lot of furious economy picking in this one! :) The first pattern is a great pickslanting and string skipping exercise too. Instagram: simoneichingerx

New day and a bigger challenge - This was in no way a one take wonder! I just kept over judging what I was doing in previous takes and trying again. I tried to stop myself from mindless noodling in the later half by using a Bubble trem effect on my guitar, enjoy!
This was supposed to be for the SGS Extreme Improv Challenge, but I got the backing track wrong. However I prefer this to the original improv I did, so here you go!
A very rough video of me playing some questionable licks and mixing some modes in G!
smrtdeath - she told me to kill myself (not a cover) i just found this song and thought it was cool tried to find some of the notes way easier than beast and the harlot xD the bass is loud, had the music really loud compared to my guitar
Progress!! Played at 137 bpm, so full speed but there's definitely work to be done to make it smoother and more consistent. Few notes because I forgot to call them out in the video: 1. Need to work on holding the notes for a little longer, they're quite short and abrupt, which sounds awful. 2. The stretches are giving my hand a pretty bad strain, so I can't play it for too long consistently, so more practice needed. 3. Timing is still slightly off, and one small mess-up throws me off entirely. 4. Getting used to switching from lead to rhythm bits needs work. There's probably stuff I missed, but these are the main bits. Enjoy!
So this is my first video on the school!! I decided like 40 minutes ago that I’m gonna get over my fear of posting a video on here and just do it! I was always too embarrassed that I can only play rhythm guitar but I finally figured out that it’s not a bad thing and actually quite important! So I chose a song I’m good at and did it! Enjoy!!
I tried to match Matt’s vocal as accurately as I could during the chorus will slight embellishes using slides and vibrato.
Clarinet was programmed using Garageband. I had to figure out the notes by ear, which was surprisingly easier than I thought. Hope you enjoy! Give me a like ...
During the next few months I want to learn how to write solos. So this is my first attempt... (Song is Porcelain by Rising Insane) What are your thoughts? I can't tell you yet whether I like the fast part.
Have been experimenting with audio/video/editing. It's a long process, with a big learning curve, but it's fun!
hi guys i've learned by ear the solo syn plays on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-OiMBoipyM i couldn't have a backing track for playing this solo so this is only me playing without anything else. i hope you like it, any tips would be really helpful
