I’ve not been around for a while (sorry been busy practicing). This is my first video where I’m not singing I think. Many of you won’t know this but it’s a nice little “bendy” solo from Suzanne Vega’s Marlene on the Wall. If you don’t know it have a listen it’s a great song. Have also been learning to sing and play it with accounts if chords. Just need to clone myself now so I can do both
Sounds good so far, Liz, though above my playgrade to offer feedback on the bends.
I enjoyed your playing and singing before watching this one.
Once you have it down you can add the solo afterwards to avoid the need for cloning (because all are ever so glad to know there are not three clones of me running around, made for my most recent AVOYP share ). It is just another thing to learn and not necessarily as hard as you may think. Really just need a PC or laptop, even a tablet plus your phone and you should be fine.
Nice bit of lead. There are easy ways to play over something else, you could just record the rhythm track and then play it, find a backing track or use a looper. I reckon lead guitar needs a backing to sound it’s best.
Just did a quick recording of the song that goes with the solo for those that don’t know it. Missed solo out obviously. Also not always nailing that pesky Bm7 bar chord yet but you’ll get the idea and I’m sure you’d recognise the song if you know it.
Great stuff Liz really well played. Vox absolutely on point as usual and I agree with Eddie the song fitted your vocals nicely but I suspect you could pretty much adapt to any style of singing, based on previous posts.
It will be a nice developer for you with regards to the solo. Well done.
That was great, Liz, doing great on both playing and singing.
My only suggestion would be to figure out a way to get the phone lifted up to be more level with maybe your mouth, or perhaps a point somewhere between mouth and top of the guitar. I think that will deliver a more even balanced level across guitar and vocal.
