Lol so doing this actually started out as an inside joke with a couple guys at work, then the more i thought about, the more i thought that the vocal melody would transfer to guitar nicely. So i took a couple days and came up with this arrangement, which i quite like, although it's not quite as practiced as i would like. Ah well, please let me know what you guys think, i worked pretty hard on this C4C?

it's a Fender Jaguar HH Special with GFS Retrotron pickups in it. I did not know these pickups could give such a nice tone lol.

Funky guitar man! haha, but damn that tone is nice, even through what seems like a webcam mic. You have Good feel on your playing as well. "In the pocket". The only thing i dislike is the pop music, lol. They play this song at my job everyday along with other pop, over the sealing speakers. Other than that, get something to record the guitar properly, so you can capture that fat tone! xD

^^ honestly, that's such a great compliment. playing in the pocket is the black man bass player in me coming through lol. Honestly i agree it's such an annoying song lmao but i wanted to try and un-gay it somehow

Love the tapping bits, especially that last one. I'm trying to work more of those style of licks into my own playing. No criticisms.

Hey man, I just wanted to let you know that this cover is pretty stinkin' awesome! I really like the personality you put into the song. (I don't exactly know what to call it... ad-lib?) Anyways, keep up the great work. Also, the capo you are using looks quite interesting, haha. It looks almost like some type of cloth.
By the way, if you have time, could you check out my cover of Payphone on the guitar and leave me some feedback?

Thanks guys, really appreciate the kind words. It's not a capo, it's a muffler for the two handed arpeggio licks. Still sounds a bit like slop so ill have to work on that.

Dude this is sick. Great cover! That guitar and tone are awesome. You captured the melody so well you made the guitar sing.

It may have started out as an inside joke, but the end result is bad ass.

Props for the Fender Jag, they are great guitars.
Play Loud! Play Fast! Play Raw!

lol this is deadly! nice tone too. sounds like Van Halen a bit with all the tapping and the tone.
#12
That was really good! I like the arrangement, tone was nice too. Now that melody is stuck in my head though!
#13
nice tone, and feel. You should work on your vibrato a little bit, make it more expressive. At points it seemed as if your vibrato was a little weak and not very consistent.

Also, it might help to maybe change up the techniques when doing the vocal melody, perhaps a little more legato, less staccato, or even just maybe bending into notes instead of sliding. Just add a variety.

Thanks for the Crit!
#14
^^ i dont get what you mean in the 2nd paragraph. I slide in legato all over the place and i used a lot of bends also. can you explain further lol

lol yeah I can,
perhaps in verse 1, you choose a specific technique, let's say sliding.

in verse 2, use legato.

in verse 3 use bending.


etc etc etc
When you stack all the techniques right next to each other it can be really cool, but sometimes providing the listener with contrast really can bring the piece over the top.

Thanks man. I want to redo this with a proper microphone and really practice it til it's flawless.
