Youtube covers
« on: Time Format »

Just a video of my playing along to some Russian heavy metal from the 80's,  wanted to do a video like this for a while.  It might seem bizarre to some of you as it's in a language I can't even understand but he it doesn't matter, music is the only language we need to undertsand each other right :)


 
Might do another one when I learn to play something else as well.

Please feel free to use this thread to post any of your own videos of you playing along with things online or anything else you would like to share  :thumb-up:

Cool video RG,

     You've definitely got the tone for it, and it sounds like you're spot on! :thumb-up:

I thought so anyway.  I really dig that tone.  I got closer when I used a JBL D120 speaker impulse as opposed to another one I normally use (I can't remember what kind  :facepalm:).  I filmed on a camera and recorded in my DI setup that I use for all studio style stuff.  So I had to sync the audio as best I could when editing the video.  I got there eventually but it can be tricky syncing sometime if you have no actual markers!  Looking forward to doing another one, but no idea if I can nail anything harder than that, have trouble with my own music most of the time lol


Thanks Orkun, glad you enjoyed it.  ;)

Thanks man  :)

Yeah I like that tone, super mid rangey.

I was enjoying it, but concentrating very hard as I didn't want to embarrass myself and I wanted to make as good a video of playing as possible.  I've often admired others on YT doing something similar and I wanted to test myself.  I had practiced the song 1millions times so I wont lie about that.  I learnt it by ear, as there is no tab for that since it's a pretty obscure band.

Why i started smiling at the end was my girlfriend came up the stairs and started to pretend to sing along!  I didn't mind at that point as I knew I was home and dry but had she done it before the solo it would have distracted me and I'd have made a mistake lol

Hey RG, yeah I could tell you'd put some work into it and you did a good job working out the bits  :thumb-up:   I still pretty much work everything out by ear, there was no tab when I was learning.  Sometimes I pick up something from a tab that I just can't quite hear what the guitar is doing, though generally I find tabs frustrating, they are often wrong and I end up just wanting to fix them up. :facepalm: .  But then (as I'm sure Mike will attest to) I often change things a bit, kind of make it my own (if you know what I mean).

Oh I agree, I find it hard working a lot of stuff out, and sometimes I have to go to some tab, but with that song I felt I really deciphered it well.  I know I did two tiny bits a little different, but not so much that when I played along side you wouldn't notice.

I often refer to tabs at the stage when I can't get it myself by ear.  Sometimes I then modify as do you, in order to sound a little more how I think it actually should go like (according to my ears).
