First recordings G'N'R & The Eagles
« on: March 04, 2008, 09:56:13 pm »
Little bit of Guns 'N' Roses.

Everything except the last solo is thanks to Justins videos.

November rain Solo

Stopped short of the fast run

In both, some of the faster runs are too slow and there are a few choppy points, but I recon I'm pretty close on tone (recording and encoding have made it a little tinny)

nice work. keep it up they are both awesome songs to learn.

I have been trying to get that fast run in the sweet child of mine solo for ages and it never sounds right, same as the one just after you stop in the November rain solo ;)

for slash solos I like to try turning my tone on the guitar down a fair bit, using the bridge pickup  and adding some delay to really make those notes sing like an organ.  If you have a delay option give it a go ;)

I have a dedicated patch in my RP250 to work with this tone.... come to think of it I haven't experimented with a little delay so I'll give that a try.

Already on bridge and 0-1-2 tone.

Cheers :)

Sounds pretty damn good man. I can play sweet child of mine but just the intro, so it would make no sense of me postin a 15 second video lol. Sounds pretty good though, what kind of guitar do you have?

I just realised that when I said bridge pickup I meant neck :D

but yeah I like adding delay to most solos or individually picked notes, I think it just adds depth to the sound

Thanks all  ;D I have a couple more of slashes finest that I'll post later.

It find that the neck pickup doesn't have as much punch as the bridge and can't get that signature "honk".
could be my neck pickup isn't up to the task, might look into one of these

Added a touch of delay and also tuned down a 1/2 step for this next one as well as using a backing track to keep tempo and complete the track.

Don't Cry
Knocking on heavens door

Recording what you play is a pretty good learning tool. I had to play that sequence dozens of times to get it up to speed AND not make any FUBAR mistakes.

Backing track courtesy of http://www.guitarbackingtrack.com

Edit: heavens door added

For heavens door, I've repositioned the microphone and tweaked a few of my computers settings and it gives a much closer recording to what I can hear now.

I do know more than just Guns 'N' Roses... Honest  :P

nice work ;)

loving that last bend in november rain solo ;) slash's stuff is really hard to copy as even if the notes are that hard to hit, to feeling he puts into those bends and how he hits them is awesome. that last bend was spot on ;).

i have had the first solo in knockin on heavens door learned for a while, now and never been able to really figure out the second one, but yours inspired me to learn it, and by jolly if I didnt :p

it still needs some work but I think I have finally figured out the right notes to hit now ;)

if I wasn't so jolly from all the liquor I mightfigure out how to post an mp3 now I lostr my webspace :p

hotel california solo goes on forever ;) its like doing the knowledge or somehting :p

as for the neck pickup not having enough punch, I know what you mean, although it makes the tone sound closer ( for me ) it does lack some of the sustain of the bridge.  although I tend to end up cranking the gain, and maybe even adding my boss ds-2 to give even more sustain for the long solo notes.

which reminds me how I really ned a lesson on vibrato ;)

Back early so here you go Liev  ;D

http://www.freelicks.net/Hotel_california.htm

It's a fairly good video instruction site that breaks solos down into chunks. (there are 3-4 follow on pages, link at the bottom).

As with most tabs, the interpretations are a little off every now and then but you should pick up where and when no problem.

I did have a seperate tab for the rest of the solo that I was working my way through at one point but I've misplaced it.
