gonna bring out 2 new songs this week. This one is pretty simple, and is almost a repeat of the first one I showed last week. Same notes, just used in different variations. It's all caged system double stops. The entire way through. And the lead is simply the caged positions all over the place. Simple song and a good beat, really sets the tone of the pace of the album which realistically isn't heavy at all.
I've known how to play this solo for a while, I've just only now decided to make a video of it with a couple changes. It's one of my favorites right now, it has some really great licks.
I've also been dipping my toes into recording lately and it's a totally different skill from just playing. Either way I'm happy to have a legitimate backing track for this video even if the drums are fake.
As always, criticism is welcome. that's how we grow.
Solo played on high E string only, wasn't played but I was working out patterns.
I think the chords of the keyboard are named right, playing 2 notes of each chord.
A+E F#+C# D+A E+B
Can't remember if my guitar was tuned down a half step as I was playing open E so probably yes. Also just learned how to plug in my keyboard and record it into my DAW so this was kind of a test project as well. Great news cause I can use it kind of like a controller. I got this cool Hardcore beat but I don't know what kind of melody to put over it yet, it's just bass at the moment.
My project was done this riffs makes me new, its a new punk rock music, mix with old a bit but I really loved it, before I started this genre I'd listen a tons of dookie records of green day, ramones and also gojira🤩and also a7x style, I'll hope this one's sounds cool to u, thank you so much guys!
I used the C minor backing track provided on the diminished scale lesson and I tried to apply the Ab diminished on the V chord. I feel that my playing has turned slopier lately and that my chops arent as good as they used to be and I think that the reason of that is that I was burned out. Yesterday I left my guitar to a luthier to readjust it so for the next week I won´t be playing it and also for the next 3 weeks I wont have much time to play since I will be busy with final exams. I will take that as a rest(I will play my guitar once it is fixed before those 3 week, tho, just to keep in shape) and after that I will start practicing at 100% and changing my aproach focusing on certaing aspects of my playing for three months to really improve on whatever I want to get better after moving on to the next thing
New content to come since I've highlighted 8 of 10 songs. The last two I wont really bother highlighting because one is just different chord variations and there's barely any real lead in the song. And bullshit is not really a theory based song and was more an attempt at trying to copy the vocal melody. Anywho, reflection is the first song on the next set to come. It's one of the only heavier songs on the album as most are rock/blues influenced. refer to comments for explanation.
this is okay. as explained in my twitch stream.
verse 1 is natural minor B flat 1 3 6 4
chorus is 1 3 6 4 major
verse 2 is harmonic minor 1 3 6 7
verse 3 is melodic minor 1 3 6 7.
I tried to stay with it but these chords are newer for me to play in so this will take some practice. I also think the mixing didn't go right and I didn't split the videos so my bad there.
Here we are with the update on my one month challenge (and since it's already Sunday here, I will count this as a Synner Sunday too 😝)! Still a lot of work to do, but that's where I am at right now after a month. Had to cut out the solo (part of the song I didn't play because got lost 😂) because Youtube would have blocked it. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestion🖤 I'll keep practicing this for sure!
#SynnerSunday Tilly is a guitar I picked up for $25. She was in a fair bit worse shape that I thought when I got her and there's still a fair bit to go just to get her working correctly. I'm not playing clean here as there's a lot of work to fix her intonation to be done.
I know I'm a little late to the game on this, but figured better late than never! I finally figured out the picking to this one, and now want to work on getting my speed up (currently doing around 3/4 speed). Not playing it tuned down because Floyd Rose :)
Not quite a whole month has passed, I’ve hit a plateau so I figured might as well post. Ive been practicing along with a slowed down backing track but had some technical difficulties so it’s just me here so tempo maybe be inconsistent. I’ve messed up some spots, but I’ve tried to record this at least 10 times so we are just going to go with this one lol. We all get nervous when recording and it’s okay. Plus, MOP isn’t exactly something you achieve quickly. 🤘🏻
