Hi everyone!
It's time to find a placement for all the rhythm players! Thank you for waiting so patiently for your turn!

Same as with the lead players, please record a video of yourself playing the verse and/or chorus of the backing track, depending of where your strengths are or where you'd like to play. (Tabs and videos below)
The Deadline for Rhythm Videos is Sunday, May 31st, 2020. At midnight.

Please, out of respect to everyone who's been working so hard on this project, DO NOT MISS THE DEADLINE. If for ANY REASON, you are unable to meet this deadline on time, please let me know BEFOREHAND. I can't help you if you don't let me know something's going on.

Please upload your videos to the Student Shred Collaboration category in the riffs and don't forget to tag me so I can check you off my list!

For the verse, @Ids Schiere created 4 different parts or layers. You can choose which one you'd like to learn and play on your video. *If you choose to play one of the verse parts, please indicate which one you are playing on your video either in the title or description, such as "Blues Rhythm 1", "Blues Rhythm 2" etc.

Here you can listen to the isolated guitar parts for the verse:

Here are the tabs Ids provided for the verse layers:

To find the corresponding video for the part you are learning on Soundslice, click on the control bar on the bottom of the page, where it says "5 Recordings" and choose the one you want to learn.

For the chorus, here is @Filip Tomiša playing that part, you can use his video to help you learn how to play it.

Here you can download the tabs for the chorus:

Good luck! Looking forward to hearing you play!

    Okay guys. I think I’m the only “beginner” here. And I’m having a hard time with this already lol. Like the video and tabs for the verse parts is awesome, however it seems like all I can hear is the other parts aside from what Ids is playing for each rhythm section and that’s really messing with me. I find I do better when I can hear clearly what I need to play. I hope I’m making sense here. Any advice? Or if you guys have seen my videos, any area you think I should try first ? I’d personally like to attempt all sections and then dwindle it down to what I think sounds best after practicing all of them and submit whichever section I think I did well in. I really want to give this my best effort.

    With many guitars doing different things at once totally understandable if you have issues hearing one of them over another. Maybe its help if you could get one in one speaker and 1 in another (ala ids in right speaker backtrack in left? )

    You can listen to the isolated parts from the Google drive link. Those are the ones that are tabbed out and for the backingtrack I took those out so you can basically replace me when you play along to them.

    They aren’t working for me. I’m going to delete the app and reinstall it and see if that works.

    Ailee, thanks for all the work you put into this, its much appreciated!
    I would really like to do my part. Is it ok if I do the chorus part (same as Filip is doing, nice to see an example and the switch between palm muted and normal playing is a nice practice for me) or do I need to do more parts/different parts. Sorry if its not totally clear for me..
    And Alicia youre not the only " beginner" here :)

    You can pick one or do both whichever has your preference.

    I would recommend that you choose one and try to polish it the best, if you try to learn all of them and pick the best you might not have enough time to really practice one in particular. Let me know if you still have issues with the Google link for the isolated parts and we can see how to fix that.

    Thank you Kim! Credit is also due to @Filip Tomiša and @Ids Schiere , who have been working really hard alongside me to make this happen.

    It is totally fine if you just do the chorus. We want people to do the part they feel most comfortable with.

    The google links are working now. I’ve been working on the chorus already since the backing track was added and someone had added the chords.

    I just wanted to check out the verse parts and see if I could even do some of the chords....which I cannot lmao. So I won’t even be attempting any of those unfortunately.

    Rhythm 4 is kind of finger twister tbh but I really liked those voicings a lot 😅

    Naah, you'll be fine. If I can do it you can definitely learn how to do it (maybe for the audition is not the best time though)

    No worries at all! Whichever you feel comfortable with is perfect! :)
    I'm glad the link is working now!
