Not at all. Great idea on the verse.
Imaginary jam at the lake,
One guitar and bt is all that's needed,
Interesting approaches. I found this one pretty challenging. My title gives a hint. That and the tempo made me think a little which is good for my old brain!
What you have Mjark, is your ear and your ability to play what you hear in your head. That means more than any school taught lesson. Your ear points towards your raw talent, you don't need raw talent to become booksmart but you do need raw talent to play what's in your head and bring it to life, and you have that in abundance.
I heard no challenging parts you played or, it didn't show, it all flowed. And since it's Halloween, it all flowed like a river of blood, ha haha,
You're too kind. I don't know how it works. I have taken a lot of lessons from a really good teacher though. I know just enough to really screw up!
Haha, you don't know how what you do effortlessly works. In the end we all just barely scratch the paint.
here is my Take line 6 Helix Plexi type sound Variax Guitar but used standard pickups
All that space was crying out for a harmony part. Nice.
This one drove me nuts! I did a bunch of takes and I was not entirely happy with any of them. But after all that work, I'll guess I'll post this. Agile LP bridge pickup getting kind of chimey through an AC-30 sim.
Tough track to play over. Using a 91 Samick Lp through Guitar Rig 5.
I will post this with an apology. I used some finger-bend techniques I haven't used in a while. My timing and intonation is hideously approximate. Hopefully, my heart was in the right place.
And now for something completely different
You sound great, like I've said before, for someone that says it's hard you played a thoroughly tight solo.
FWIW, the whole tune was in the key of G. The chorus section that goes Bm to C and then to Am,, all those chords are in the family of G major scale, so G major is the only scale needed.
@knh555 - Welcome back after a bit of absence! The slide sounds great!
@ASATKat - I also like the one with the BT, but it does seem like you are doing your own thing.
@udoering - Great twangy tone! And a very nice response to a pretty challenging BT.
@warthog - Cool tone. Nice melodic lines too. Anthemic! The door was great too. Your son should always play door on your tracks and you should give him credit on the album. He might have to join the union though. You know Iggie Pop always brought a door onstage with him, but I don't know who played it.
@Mjark - Now that is a great tone, organic and airy, yet still country. Country sailing through the sky on a cloud of music!
@fendrguitplayr - Lovely squeaky clean tone! Cool harmonics. It's a measured approach, sort of like Neil Young but cleaner.
@JCL50 - Not boring! Nice vibrato on the slide. Very nice tone, kind of airy and dreamlike.
@Alan L Cole - Impressive response to a challenging track! Never loses interest. I hope the capitol building doesn't burn up though.
The whole tune is just one scale.
G, and the family of chords derived from the G scale.
So the key of G is a family,
G Am Bm C D Em F#° G
Thanks, my later 3rd posting at the top of pg 2 was my best take by far imo. Did you hear that one?
Just reduce all the complexity down to the G major scale, then apply you ear as you very nicely nice did, all G major.
You chose to play the G major pentatonic for most of your playing, that's a good choice. It's the anchor of the key. The maj pent represents home, all the chords want to go home, it's their purpose, chords are like ants.
Yeah it’s not the chords/Key but the feel, the eternity spent on the IV chord that’s odd.
@Alan L Cole what a tone.
@ASATKat I like your tone and how you go with note choice and growing intensity.
@tooloud solid playing and harmonized parts sound great
@guitarsophist guitar tone is a little too dry to my taste, good playing.
@Mellencaster nice tone, great 2nd verse.
@simoncroft your mellow tone with that amount of compression give a pedal steel sound, suits the track very well. very enjoyable.
@Thoughtfree interesting. Even if it's a The Edge delay playing homage, it also has a little 'baba o'riley' vibe to my ears.
Your heart was in the right place. Nice switching from the slide to fingers. Good melodies.
