I love this idea. Can we mark a thread as a favorite? I can’t wait to see what all you put in here.
Sounded incredible JK! Loved everything about it, the tone was spot on, you hit the rhythm really well, and you played it with ease.
I haven’t played this song since I posted my video last year, watched the video twice and picked up my guitar the second time and played along with you. Forgot how fun this song was despite it being relatively simple. It’s the rhythm that makes it really fun, when you hit it just right.
Most definitely the hardest part of playing the rhythm for this. The fingering that Justin points out using your thumb to hit the low E string was impossible for me, so I used the second one he suggested. Yours looks like a slight variation on that one it looks like.
I can’t end my comment without gushing about how your guitar sounds again. That’s one mean sounding Tele!
I’m already looking forward to the rest because you played this super tight and the sound was great … the only thing I don’t understand is that Agnus’s solo is not in tune??? I’ve listened to it a few times now and also with 2 different versions on you-tube, How is that possible?
Hopefully I’m not the only one hearing it since it’s not mentioned by people above…(help me )
And oh yes, this is your guitar face and you’ll have to deal with that …but there’s nothing wrong with it, and by the time you play this in the pub it’s so well in your head you can smile at the lad ----your wife in the hall
Sounding great JK! Loving the Tele with the 'buckers.
I know what you mean about the faces - whenever I see one of my videos I look as miserable as anything - I’m not - just concentrating.
BTW what are the new AVOYP rules you mention in your post? I must have missed them, and I can’t see anything at the top of this forum section.
Nice project to have JK and a great start to it! I could do with the facial expression lesson too! I’ve noticed recently I always look like I’m in pain for some reason!! The body movement at the end showed a good bit of beginnings of rocking out
I’ll look forward to the next postings, you’re getting a great tone from the Tele there.
Hi Phil, Richard posted the new rules two days ago:
New addition to the rules & etiquette and guidance for AVOYP
Thanks Helen - not sure why I missed that, but it seems like a good practice!
Hi Jk, I like your idea of creating a rock songbook thread like @alexisduprey and will bookmark the thread. You sound pretty awsome. Don’t care about your guitar face…you haven’t seen mine . I look like a rabbit, nibbling (?) some grass, as I’m making some really strange movements with my mouth out of concentration
That flat rocked. Seemed you got the tone going, the pauses, the strumming and all is working well together. Really enjoyed it as well. Nice play, good sound and production.
Just one thing, when you play without them it sounds very good. At times it seemed to my ears (and since I wear bionics, which can fool me), that something was off in there when they came in. Like sort of out of tune or something? I could give exact locations in time by seconds if you want to check it out. At any rate it could certainly be my ears or possibly there is something there? At this point I don’t know exactly what it is I think I hear specifically. It could be an off chord or something…?
Again though, you have this one down and great job!
All the best and keep rock’n,
Seem to have heard that somewhere before…
Good on ya, mate!
Google ‘slugs + guitarist’ for facial expression advice
Look forward to following
Nice job JK and tone sounded spot on…great idea to work your way through the book. Some great songs in there.
Excellent rocking workout JK, sounded wicked.
I’ve added an update the first post with a list of links to the songs, so we can always jump straight to them and see what you have covered.
Great sounds, totally badass!
About the faces, suggest you look at some of the best, like Gary Moore RIP he was pretty good, otherwise look up Gurning, it’s a UK thing, there’s some on YT, like this…. Longest time gurning - Guinness World Records - YouTube
That was outstanding JK. Love the sound and tone you are able to get out of the guitar. I was too busy watching to and listening to your playing to notice your facial expressions. Love that song and loved your cover!
Sounding great JK. I like the idea of a rock songbook thread and look forward to your additions
Fabolous work JK watched it on Tubez first as a faithful subscriber stunning play, as an ex drummer rhythm flows through your veins and I would say song was definitely too easy for where you are at now not sure what dreamer songs you learn but definitely worth playing songs that have some things in common with your dreamer tracks like chord changes etc. This one seemed to be was easy peasy for you which made it a very enjoyable cover to listen to!
No such thing
Well done JK, nice clean stops. Great tone.
The song book sounds a nice idea.
Have to agree, there were some funny artefacts on the vocals backing track?? Have you got software slowing it down?
Anyway, your part was outstanding
Hi @jkahn ,
Inspirational and very cool recording.
Thanks for sharing!!!
Yeehaaa JK! That was rad! Your tone was so on point mate, and your mutes between strums on the main riff were precision. I know what you’re saying about facial expression, that’s my dilemma too but anything you played with that gorgeous guitar has to look killer!
Did note what some others mentioned about the backing track being slightly off, nothing to do with your playing but there was something odd with that, perhaps slowed down a touch which threw it out of tune?
Anyways, I wouldn’t worry about that when your playing is well beyond drunken pub gigs mate, bring on the next RBS installment! Yeeeeewwwww !
We started a project at work yesterday about Electric vehicles etc and we called it AC/DC
This one is going to be stuck in my head all day
