Re: Hey Joe

That is great playing for 6 months in. You have got the notes and phrases, the dexterity. Congrats. 8) You asked what to work on: the timing gets off kilter pretty much from the get go. You establish a tempo with the intro riff and then lose the beat just after the first chords (about 7 secs) and it...

Re: finally, a demo song

Enjoyed the whole menu, Randy. Thanks for the listen. 'Oh Carol' was the standout for me. The guitar tone, not to mention the playing, was absolutely killer. Any light you can shed on your setup for that particular track would be much appreciated. I get that you're looking to have a live off the flo...

Re: Jump Into the Fire GN Collab

Thanks for the feedback Roy. After I handed off the basic track (MIDI organ, drums and congas (maybe?), real bass and guitar stabs) to Randy, he handled everything from thereon, mixwise. He's the one who 'knows all' about the mix. For my basic track, I used a light maximizer globally. I apply it to ...

Jump Into the Fire GN Collab

Fun with a classic from Harry Nilsson. I started with some found MIDI elements of the song and added live bass and guitars stabs. I then forwarded it to my friend, GNer dogbite, who took it the rest of the way: looped it, enhanced it and then proceeded to freak out on it, both vox and guitars wise. ...

Re: Placing all fingers at same time

Further to what Nuno said, the F barre is the hardest one of all due to string tension. I'd advise learning how to finger the shape somewhere higher up the neck. It's a movable shape, so an A barre for example is: 5 7 7 6 5 5 E A D G B e Learn the shape and fingering somewhere around there and then ...

Re: Y10W52 Apocalypso

Thanks all for the feedback and encouragement. It is much appreciated. Super pointers, James. I will save out and digest...I was thinking of the quake and tsunami as one event (tidal wave triggered by quake) and it made it more, er, apocalyptic, but I hear you about how it diffuses focus. Thanks Dav...

Y10W52 Apocalypso

Well, I'm back to see if I can actually finish a Year 10 assignment. This stuff does not come easily to me. :lol: But I came up with a goofy title I liked and roughed in a first verse, to the tune of Harry Belafonte's Jump in the Line: Quake, quake, quake, carumba!, quake on the fault line, Make mak...

Re: Do the Pros care what name is on the head stock?

Celebrity endorsements sell overpriced things to fanboys and fangirls. It has always been thus. And not only in music, in sports, cosmetics, processed food, and just about everything else.

Re: My latest project

OK, I'll be the contrarian. I prefer the first mix. :lol: It's a little wooly sounding but it meshes together better for me. With this one, the elements are more discrete for sure, but they create a sort of ping pong effect: Pay attention left channel, then pay attention right channel...it makes me ...

Re: All of the above! (ReMixed)

Cool thread TR, great playing and lots of great input so far. Like most everyone, I like the second mix better, it's more dynamic and 'live' sounding. I'm with Laz re. the vocal reverb: Perhaps too much "echo" on the vocal reverb, so it doesn't sound like part of the same performance. I'd cut that b...

Re: Beginner's videos

Great to see this thread back up and running. ) Nice job, BK! It started well and got progressively better. I really like your voice. Great timbre and musicality. You had some great moments where you played with the phrasing tempo a bit, those were my faves. Really made it come alive. More please. :)
