Musicians on .net

I've been playing drums since I was 8, but never played a "melodic" instrument until my mid-20s (I'm in my early 40s now). I have always been into more technical music - as a drummer, my favorite bands were Rush and Dream Theater. It wasn't until I got into guitar and theory that I realized those bands have some pretty good guitar players, too. I became obsessed with practicing and learning - I watched a lot of videos, read a lot of books, learning technique and theory, and spent 6 to 8 hours practicing every day for a year or so. I became a big fan of players like Satch, Vai, Gilbert, Petrucci, Shawn Lane, etc.

Anyway, I know there are talented folks on .net, and just wanted to start a thread where we could share.

I'll start. Here's a video of me playing a Dream Theater instrumental - it's got some sweeping, some syncopated rhythm, and some nice melodic stuff. Pretty much the kitchen sink in about 3 minutes. I clammed a simple chord at the end, but oh well.

Overture 1928 (guitar cover):

You got some skills. Now teach me drums lol. I wanna play like Danny Carey. The RG in my name is from one of my guitars. The rg1570 prestige. Lol. Go figure. Into all the stuff you mentioned. I used to be obsessed with playing real technical stuff. I don't practice as much these days though so my speed is down. Lately getting into recording. I suck but I'm getting a little better.

Here's a cover I recorded the other day. Dry guitar and bass.

I'm a very good singer (3rd people's opinion!).

I also play guitar and a little bass guitar too.

I mounted a little studio at home (nothing serious or super tech) and I've been recording stuff... Making my own arrangements.

I recorded one song doing two guitars, bass and three voices... Of course it doesn't sound professional, it has timing flaws, my performance on the instruments is not as great as it could be... But hell, I had a very good time doing it, and makes me feel proud of myself since I've never really studied music and still I'm capable of doing things like this...

I'm now working on a cover of Civil War by Guns n'Roses, but that'll take time... is far more complex than my last covers...

Not a great fan of the band... I would love to collaborate singing over one of your covers, but choose another song!!

If you have anything else, dropbox me the MP3 or WAV (or whatever format you work with) and I'll do the rest!!

In fact, I'm already looking forward for it!

NICE!

I've always been an Ibanez guy, too - the vid I posted is also an RG1570. However, I've been looking hard at buying the new Petrucci signature Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty. Its looks are polarizing, either you love it or hate it, but it has fantastic action, the best access to the higher frets I've ever played, and just versatile as hell. However, the price is damn near a whole summer of track days for me....

Want to tackle this? It's an acoustic Dream Theater song (I do play other bands' covers, too, I promise) that I recorded a guide track for another vocalist.

Here's the guide track: http://doomcue.com/Recordings/The%20...de%20track.wav

That was done with an electric acoustic I wouldn't use for a final recording, but it was good enough just to get a click and guide down for the vocalist.

I'd probably use my dreadnought for the final tracks: http://doomcue.com/Recordings/Silent...o%20vocals.wav

Fair warning, those are uncompressed WAV files, so they're close to 60MB each.

Here's a youtube of the original audio by Dream Theater:

That sounds better... Give me some time, I know the band but not the song, I'll need to learn it... in the meanwhile if you have something more, just send it!

Any Greenday tunes around?

BTW... What's with heavy metal anyways?!... I mean, I'm a great fan too... Metallica, Iron Maiden, even Rhapsody, Panthera... But I prefer to play/sing more melodic tunes.

It seems that in order to be a good guitar player you have to master Heavy Metal... hahahaha

Metal is fun to play and challenging. I get safisfaction when I master a solo or a riff that I couldn't play at first. I don't think you have to master metal to be a good guitar player. Although I do feel playing metal absolutely makes you a better player because half the metal songs out there are one giant speed exercise.

What sorts of bands are you into? I'll whip up another cover whenver I have time. I listen to a bit of everything, but 90s grunge and metal/prog rock are sort of where I default to.

Fundamental difference between instrumentalists. Guitar players who want to play technical stuff are considered heavier, or they play jazz. Same with drummers. Singers who want to "show off" generally want to sing slower, with long drawn out notes (not heavy usually). Pop music is all about the singer, whereas other genres often put the emphasis on the instruments, or share duties.

I guess that's why I like Dream Theater, Billy Joel (yeah, I said it), and instrumental guitarists - they don't have to have cookie monster vocals (although I dig stuff like Killswitch, LoG, etc., too).

Ironically, I enjoyed Metallica much more when Hetfield DIDN'T try to actually sing.

Do you just want acoustic guitar, or do you have a preferred full band backing track?

Here's some acoustic wanderings. One of my buddies wanted to learn this so I sat down and figured it out.

Good sh!t X. Heart does an excellent version of Stairway to Heaven, kinda cool to see the surviving members of Zeppelin watching them perform it. I suck at fingerstyle and hybrid picking. Had an accident in college that cut the nerves to my ring and pinky fingers on my right hand, so I can't feel the strings. I tried learning some James Taylor a few years ago, and I physically just can't do it.

Rechecking the post I see I have homework due, jajajaja

Sorry guys, I've been extra-busy lately both artistic and professionally.

I started with a Tribute band some months ago, we do HIM songs... I don't like to post my stuff a lot, but since people almost never get into this post ...

This is just instrumental recording and two voices done by me.

Enjoy!!
