Just A Guitar Jam

By Tweaklab on November 25, 2018 11:20 pm

So one thing that I'm really not that confident in is my ability to play single takes on guitar, especially when it comes to arps. This week I just wanted to chill out and have a go at recording something I improvised. The entire "tune" was made on the fly, over about 10 takes though lol. This was the last (and best) take. It was cool learning to recover from mistakes and use them as a transition to the next section (you can hear this at 0:22 when I stuff up the arp but then repeat the same "mistake" and then go into the power chord progression.

Next step is to learn a bunch of traditional chords and stop playing power chords / drop tunings smile

To try and avoid hiding anything behind distortion this tune was recorded on the 6 string Strat with a clean/acoustic tone.

Nothing wrong with power chords, really those thirds are more trouble than they're worth.

Nice work though.
