It is totally audible and you can do it on acoustic too. Try it out, letting a chord ring out vs letting it ring out with some neck vibrato. If you get the neck vibrato right it makes a difference.
Totally Tony, just play it a lot faster and there’s rockabilly I think . Maybe add the 6th. In truth I can play this faster too but there ends up being a couple of dud notes in it.
Thanks Lisa. Yeah, there is a twiddle near the end. I didn’t program the whole beat, just found a kit I liked and pieced together pre-programmed beats/fills/grooves for the right number of bars. I used to play drums so knew what I wanted, just had to find it . Sometimes I think it would be easier just to have a kit and lay down a beat without fiddling with the tech.
Thanks Shane, one day in the distant future I might learn some licks and chip in on that improv stuff
Thanks Eddie! Yeah I feel in the last few months the fretboard has started to open up a lot, I’ve been doing lots of scales and learning a bit of lead stuff. Still a mission to keep a steady groove going without mess ups though.
Hey John, Yeah it’s fun to do, a bit to learn but not too hard, worthwhile for a few skills - alternate picking, string skipping (most of the riffs are 3 strings), and swing beats. I know what you mean about finding this in the course, I almost skipped over it! It’s in Grade 4, scroll down to “Blues Guitar Studies” and there are 4 of these set pieces. A step up from beginner stuff but not as hard as the solo blues guitar courses.
Hey James! Thanks man, had a listen to that song and sounds cool. There is actually a song I plan to learn that uses a groove similar to this (slight different but similar enough pattern) but not sure if it’s reachable yet.
Glad you liked the slides Mark, was wondering if anyone would notice them . Was quite fun to slide into notes, I hadn’t learnt anything else where that was a thing. tbh I probably won’t multi layer it, I’ll just move onto the next thing
