I was not going to submit to this contest until I realized how much it is parallel to what I've started doing with the beato book I recently purchased it. Since the two are related I have added the video here as a submission. Its longer then planned.. but I do all 7 chords. You don't have to follow them all. It starts off sluggish with the open notes on bflat but it gets better. Next week I plan to make a simple chord progression using the chords. If you want to suggest a progression for me to play over that'll be helpful. I could pick it myself.. but its more challenging if you pick it for me. I'll do the video of finding the scales I need with the chords from the progression. Then ill record it and solo over it and add that too. Thats basically my plans going forward. But for now.. you can watch me play the chords in the family. Big tip.. I am a FULL STEP down. Pg teaches you these same chords in c major standard tuning. (I'm step down g minor/bflat major)

  • This weekend I plan to hit up another song I have planned. I'm still debating on what song that may be. Brutality has so many harsh grinding riffs that it's hard.to pinpoint a good acoustic riff without picking a song that was cleanly played. I'm thinking maybe famous lie. But even that song has clean parts everywhere.
    Update on my project:

    Spent 2 hours getting the guitar down for the first song. I also have noticed my truss rod needs a little loosening due to the cold weather hitting. May do a video about that adjustment before I continue. I've also given some thought of the other songs I plan to do.
    Was syn TV taken away from non legends now? Noticed this week the tab doesnt have the syntv option anymore.
    alexj
    Yup that's totally fine! Are you now seeing SynTV in the bottom tabs in the mobile web version of the site? Just want to make sure everything is fixed on you end and looks otherwise I'll keep looking!
    C
    Yup that was a pretty simple fix eh? Not that it was needed I was just curious if there was a change. It looks back to normal now so good stuff there.
    alexj
    Yup I did make a change as it seems that the nav item was removed from the bottom tab so I simply needed to add it back in, no changes in SynTV permissions at all. Great glad everything looks right now!
    I've decided that I am going to kind of document and or stream my process of recording these acoustic songs. If this interests you to maybe see how I do it or just wanna tag along just let me know and I'll send my twitch your way. Ill post some of the stuff here but thered be too many to consistently post. Instead I'll for sure be sharing the final results.
    Essentially my vocals are done. I double tracked it this time to try and get a wider sound. It actually gave me a massive alice In chains vibe in my vocals. I really like it. Just gotta do edits and reverb additions before release.
    Adding locrian bass notes sound greaseyyyyy.

    stride means like opposing, maybe if your interested watch a stride piano video just to know what it is

    To be honest im not really trying to learn piano techniques right now.. im more just learning chords and scales and getting used to using my left hand in the opposite way I normally use it. Its gonna take a dew months to get used to it. It takes a lot of takes to get something down. The video i posted i barely moved my fingers and i didnt do many off beat notes unless it was safe to. When i switch between chords its a lot harder cause my fingers are almost as big as the keys.
    William B.
    it's almost the same idea like guitar cause you have one hand that strums and one hand making the sounds, like helps to separate and control
    like working in stride, keyboard also helps with makiung the fingers indepandent
    Writing has been pretty ok so far. About eight songs completed. Some aren't gonna be used and need to be looked at again. But got some neat ideas in there. Some similar some new.
    My latest set of songs are now live on spotify. I wrote these only a few months ago and officially am now caught up on all the material ive written. I'll be sitting down and writing new stuff soon.. im looking for people to collab and write with. If this interests you just let me know.

    The blast/polka beats sounding nice :D I only heard the samples from the list here, we can try something sometime but I shouldn't promise anything. Been having some things irl and resting next to practice/learning. Working on my vocals too but my throat hurts sometimes so can't do it everyday
    C
    You probably need spotify to actually hear the songs. But you can find them.on most social platforms. If you can't find them let me know.

    I've been listening to mostly Dream Theater this past week
    did you know pigeons flick their tongues like lizards and make weird sounds when relaxed?

    One last comment. I will not be going through these song for song as quite honestly i dont think many people are bothering to really follow or read the posts. Or even leave a comment really. The couple that do can always pm me if they want to know what I did. But I see no point in explaining myself if no one is gonna bother to read it. Or say "hey that was neat I liked that" even tho it seems every other riff in the place gets likes and comments.
    Did you guys just add the "view" feature? I feel like that's been. And a great addition.

    Where?

    Basically on the bottom or a post or a riff there was the "comment" and "share" and "like" now I see the "view" which takes you to the page of the riff you are viewing. I always had to click on comments to get to that page. So it's a good addition to make it easier to load in the page of of the riff.

    I see it too now
    Little behind this weekend due to play off hockey (fucking Toronto..) but I'll have 3 new songs coming tonight. 2 of them made an appearance here a few years ago and I used the origional files in the end (with the mistakes left in cause inlike the way it sounds with them honestly). 2 songs are a 2 part feature. They kind of tell a story. More details tonight.
    Can't believe the news about Chris Conley. Although I'll admit his attitude is extreme I can kinda relate in trying to not be alone. This sounds a lot like mansons story. Makes you wonder how many more are gonna come out over the next few years. And which ones are real and which ones are money grabs.
