Week 28 - Guitar Week 2 - the one that is actually a god damn drum solo.

UPDATE: So it turns out I didn't unmute the other channels so what you are actually going to hear are just the drums. Let that be a lesson to everyone. Check your track before uploading.

I've been hit with a pretty intense cold this week so Sunday evening has pretty much been the only day I was able to do anything. This is the result of about an hour and a half.

It's more of an experiment to do with triplet picking than anything but still surprised with what I was able to do given the time constraints. This was definitely a moment of "stop worrying about the riff progression and do everything else".

Weekly Beats has been really good at helping me break through this from a DAW perspective and I'm excited to do the same with my guitar picking

Love that trilling delay bounce back effect on the drums but am totally lost here... no guitars? I'm only hearing the drums.

Yep. You're totally right. Seems like I forgot to unmute all the other channels and I've just uploaded the drums.

Last week was not a good week. I'll see if I'm able to get them to upload the correct track.

I thought you were just being avante garde in having a piece called guitar week with no guitar but, I like the appended title.  At leaste the drums sound awesome. I've mistaking uploaded some real bad crap that was all distorted and you just can't take it back. Looking forward to next week!

Heh. Yeah, I've got no issues with being a bit experimental but that would be a bit too far.

I'm giving myself a bit of a break from WB. If these last few weeks have taught me anything, it's that my guitar skills need a lot of improvement so I've been focusing on that at the moment. Here's hoping I'll get some awesome tracks with guitar a bit later in the year.

Looking forward to your return. Hit me up.  I can see needing to take a break from WB but don't feel it is necessary to beef up on anything.  At best, this is a constructive sounding board to push yourself.  At worst, seriously look at some of the crap tracks I've posted out of time, distorted... but my mixes are getting incrementally better! And there is always redemption 1 week away smile
