A good one trickier than it looks at first glance.
Man. I'm still amazed at how easy it is to learn something. Beats the heck out of listening to a song 500 times, pausing it, rewinding, and still saying "F^@K! I still can't get it!"
I used MTV videos...recorded and rewound a BILLION fooking times to figure crap out.........
Cant do that now MTV dont play MUSIC lol
Yeah well that's the true but in truth that baptism by fire just kicks my a$$ I had to go over that 500 times and still f up . I learned this one and another pretty quick so I decided to try that one and its a mother for me.
u-tube has under settings (looks like a gear bottom right) a speed control & it's amazing how much easier it in slowed down... so does the music players...
I don't know if its me or my puter but I can never get it too slow down where I want it so I just go at regular speed.
sometimes i hate hitting like because it's "i wrecked my car/ like, my hamster died/ like"... on my computer when you scroll your cursor on the time line u-tube has from right to left, full screen, theater mode & the 3"rd setting which looks like a gear... when i hit the "gear/settings a option is speed... it's on my 2 laptops & i'll check my wife's computer... i tab 20 to a hundred songs a week for students & have decades @ it & slowing a song down is a gift from g-d...
Yeah I have tried. it either goes way too slow are just a hair slower
If I could get it somewhere in between that would be great.
With all the homework my guitar teacher gives me, I don't have time to learn new songs. But if I did I would just do a search on youtube for guitar lessons on that song. Also if I can I will buy the music sheet to get the timing.
PS my guitar teacher also says that the way the song is played in a record is usually designed to be played in conjunction with a lot of different layers of guitar and other instruments in a studio. If you try to play "as is" by yourself it wont sound as good. Part of what he is teaching me is how to interpret a song so it sounds good as a stand alone, and also so that I can start to develop my own style.
Your teacher sounds like they know what they are talking about. You can't teach one their own style... the best you can hope for is to guide them to find it.
i'm on work pc speakers. If that is Shut Up and Play, he is pretty good. I have noticed on his, and other sites: the seemingly easy AC/DC songs can be tricky on the timing.
I never knew you could slow down the youtube..
Doo, I get what you're saying about developing your own style and how tracks sound strange stand alone and unprocessed.
But, learning the skills and ear by playing things you know and like cant hurt either.
Man, I really should take some lessons.
YES and yeah he is pretty good . ACDC is always tight tight I have long called Malcolm the atomic clock
he don't miss a beat lol and while his chord structure is often simple his technic is not.
Speaking of AC/DC did anyone else hear about Brian Johnson?
I hate to say it but it would seem the band is coming apart at the seems........ I REALLY hate to say it because I have enjoyed these guys since before I had fuzz on me danglies! (as Brian would say) I am paraphrasing ---and not right in the head---
i do this almost daily, layering multi tracked parts through performances & as a tracking engineer & tabbing/figuring out parts/songs for others & myself...
Well My gut is after the release of Rock or bust. They were only going to do a 8-10 major city tour
but the cd sales prompted them to push it.
