video of my 2nd take w/ tele on John F's backing track:
Well Ted, you actually had a very nice tone in that one, and played relaxed. What amp? Just practice bending on key, and staying in time. Also, your vibrato bends the notes out of key when you hang on a note. Why not try playing with NO vibrato for a while. I bet you would sound far better instantly. Add the vibrato later after practicing it some more. Just trying to be helpful. You can rip my playing anytime you want.
I thought you had some good ideas on that one Ted, I agree with TAG your tendency is to bend notes out of tune...Just a little more focus on listening will help there and with your timing over Chord changes...
I'll try to bend in key more.
Tag -- amp is a homebrew single 12ax7, single EL84 with light bulbs controlling the power supply (www.tedm.com/amppics/myfirstamp) through a Fender 1x12 sealed ported with 8 ohm V30 speaker. Backing was just played over the stereo, all was just picked up by the camcorder mic. Pedal in front of amp was an Ibanez TS7 tubescreamer with settings around noon.
My sound clips for this and recent backings are through a digitech DF-7 od pedal with cab sim built in, going straight into the board.
Nice and controlled Ted! This is your best clip to my ears. Keep at it man.
Someday when I get an interface I'll actually post something
Appreciate the kind words.
Slow down, TurboTed!
Don't be scared to just let a note ring out until it stops!...Really!
....and think about using your wrist instead of your fingertips when employing vibrato, ... it's much easier to control that way and gives you a more consistent sound.
I have to admit yer makin' some progress...
I don't know what's going on with all the skips in the video- is that editing? HeHe
And why all the bouncy bouncy?
well the only pc around with firewire in is a slow one, so it's probably the slow pc doing the glitching.
on the bouncy bouncy, well, that's rock n' roll ...
