Riffs

Using the 1 5 4 6 chords in different patterns. Getting more familiar with the sounds of the progressions.. gonna start trying to point them out in videos.
I honestly didn't expect it. I'm trying to learn a song a week, this one is easier than what I usually play but that brings out the small things you've always been doing wrong without noticing. I still am not very comfortable with playing above the 12th fret as you can hear. Any criticism is welcome, that's why I post it here. :)

A bit of a bizarre one to come back with, but it's something I've been working on (by ear, as usual), and I thought I'd share it with you as I'm super proud of it! I need to get my pinky finger working a bit more, as there's plenty of opportunity, it's just making sure it sounds good and is comfortable to play! Also, I did record a whole cover for one of my favourite video game themes! That'll be coming once I record the video for it! And also, a very happy international Women's day!! \m/
Happy Synner Sunday Everyone!!! This has a lot of mistakes in it, but it was fun to learn and fun to play, so I hope y'all enjoy it as much as I did. It was a true challenge playing through the whole thing, and served as a reminder as to why learning entire songs is an important part of development. In my opinion, that applies to everyone. Learning a full song tests your concept of timing and rhythm, and forces you to drill your areas of technique which may be lacking. Last but not least, it forces you to either fix or improvise with mistakes on the fly. As you will see, there are a few times where my fingers do not end up where they should be, but knowing the song well allows me to make quick corrections. With that, I hope everyone is having an awesome day, I look forward to seeing everyone else's uploads for today! Also, that is the most comfortable fuckin hoodie I've ever worn, I was almost sweating recording this. 120% worth it.
Tried my best to get it 99% accurate... :) If you wanna improve as an overall musician, ditch tabs and try learning solos by ear. The best way to do this (imo) is to slow down the song on YouTube to 0.5 or even 0.25 speed! If you're lucky, you might also find an isolated guitar track! ;)
So my computer with all my recordings and all 65 Syns etudes backing tracks broke LOLOL I'll eventually repost this with better sound quality and both video angles. I won't have any newly produced content for a little while as I sliced my pinky ...
My guitar is tuned down a half step from E Standard. Was trying to help and may have deviated slightly from the topic. I made this to help some. There's more things you can do. Tried to edit my video too, I saw "uhh" a lot.... This is the tab I used: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/rebelution/feeling-alright-tabs-632770
My first time doing a review - so please go easy on me! 🙏🏼 One of the local guitar stores sent over this amazing amp to me for a demo & review :) Check it out!
Some here and some friends have asked to see my progress and what way is better than a little re-visit of the first song I covered :) For more short clips etc I am also on Instagram where I am most active, if you wanna like/sub on my YouTube too I'd appreciate it a lot <3

This is my attempt at fully recreating Tim Henson's video "How to make a riff 3". I tried my best, let me know what you think, also added a Himiko Toga Edit at the end just cause I love her!!🥰🔪
i figured it out just now, a bit ago I've been doing a lot of guessing work, I remembered something Bill Hudson said on the masterclass about noticing the major scale everywhere after and he said and did an example of going up and down in the same area. was about the next note being near or next to it. super big help, Thank you! it was kind of lingering and it's been helping me figure stuff out waaaaay easier. I really should get back to remembering the names of the notes on the fretboard and practice songs again. starting to lack

You asked for shorter videos this is probably the shortest they will go. This was the first of a few to contain some new chords my friend Spencer (who is courting guitar parts with me) was using. I do not believe i played the scale to.match that chord but will be looking up these scales more and practice it this weekend.
I'm still trying to work on my singing a little bit. This time a shawn mendes song I dig quite a lot. I wanted to do like a split screen during the solo but then my video editing skills sucked monkey balls so I just did whatever this is instead 🤣🤣
Where the last lesson touched on when you are in a mode and make D Dorian sound like D Dorian and not like C major, there's also another way you can treat the modes and this video touches on that.
