Sweet Child O Mine
« on: April 12, 2009, 08:17:55 pm »
Hi everyone

This is my cover of Sweet Child O Mine. It's bad and it's probably too difficult for me, but I thought I'd give it a go :)
I can't play the fast part of the main solo, so I skipped it which is why the video is a bit short  ;D
I recorded it with a Washburn Wi200 Pro,

I made the 'video' with Sony Vegas 8

Please rate and comment :)

Here it is:

From someone who knows how much work has gone into getting to that point with this song, well done and keep going!  You know you have a whole bunch of polish to add, but essentially the feel is good and you can't teach that bit.

Lastly I wont to complain that your vids have no video!!!

Listen to the recording again.  You're playing it way to fast.  The song is delicate.  It needs to exhibit respectful love.  Other than that you've pretty much got it to me.

I thought it was fairly good. Yeah, lots of refining to do, but good on you for giving it a go.

Thanks everyone :) and especially to Tigger for giving you the link ;D
Sl8sh, I listen to the recording pretty much every day and the backing track I use is the same tempo as the original ;)

Yes, I'd rather have vids as well, but I have to fill an entire 8cm DVD and finalize it before I can put them on Youtube. If I just record sound, it's much quicker :D

When he says too fast I think he means the individual notes sound rushed. If you listen to the original the notes flow together, you get this vibe every now and then but it's inconsistent.

I notice you skipped the sequence that leads in before the solos... worth learning.

Tourniquet.

That is definetely what I mean.  The notes are rushed.  I even have trouble playing the intro because the fingering is a little awkward.  It's also a good challenge.

If you listen to the recording carefully the intro does start fast but then it slows down a little very quickly.  I would dare say to an untrained ear its obvious.  Practice the intro with a metronome.  Or play along with the recording.

It was good...just the notes were rushed.  I will say over all it was really great.  It does need improvement.  It's better than I can play right now.

I might be mistaken, but I seem to recall Slash played that intro free time so to speak. They liked it and then had to fit the drums and a set tempo to it.

That would be no problem today but was then.

Really!?  ???

I had no idea.  You learn something new in the weirdest places.  What I will say is that the notes, as far as counting/rhythm for the intro, are eighth notes.  Sort of free style like TB-AV said.
