Advanced guit-box:

Voted for Random3, because that was very well done.

Cavalcade's tempted me though. Not much in it, really.
Learning a new cover song? Feel like recording it? And have people listen to it? See the CATPM thread in the Pit. Here's the user group

It was a tough choice for me too.


I think I picked the right one though.

I'm not even going to vote because the only "advanced guitar" track doesn't even have the guy's guitar playing in it.

I assume you are talking about mine.

Allow me to explain as your sarcasm detector is apparently broken.

I recorded the video separately from the audio as I use different programs for each and I usually use multiple takes, however in this particular video I didn't.

Now take your rude comments elsewhere.

Sorry, let me make sure I lerk in the pit all day and become omniscient about all of the competitions held here.

I don't know why you're arguing with me. The first one clearly doesn't even have his own guitar mixed in; so how can you possibly judge the accuracy of the cover?


The second one is sloppy at parts and hardly an advanced guitar song.


the third is a nice try but not anything close to accurate.

I ask you to listen again. I was playing over a backing track, not over the original song, so all of the lead guitar parts you hear in that video are me playing them.

EDIT: If you really need proof and your ears are really that broken then here is the backing track I used:

Fix'd.

I know it's not the original but a video syncing up to playing isn't very impressive.

In Random's you can here a click track count you in. That isn't in the original.

And, good as they both are, they are not exactly the same.

Allow me to make things easier for you as you don't seem to understand what I did.

Close your eyes when the video is on. Ignore the video. Listen to the audio. The audio was recorded by me in a single take. The video I filmed afterwards so that I could upload it to youtube and have something for the viewer to look at. I do the same thing on virtually all of my videos.

The reason why I pre-record songs for things like this is because I do a lot of work on mixing in Pro Tools, including multiple layered guitar tracks. For this particular piece I only used one track because I was short on time due to uni work.

Kyle, would it have been more impressive if I had instead synced the audio to an image of a carrot instead of a video of me miming?

So....If you did it in one take why were you not filming it?

You can record the original take and mix afterwards, what you said makes no sense.


It would be more impressive if you had a video of your playing the actual guitar track instead of trying to sync it.

If you honestly can't tell a cover from the real thing, then you have much to learn when it comes to music dude. Nobody is trying to fool you, you're just a petty troll.


You think they suck? Fine. Go away then. You already gave your input.

Well, Pro Tools 10 and iMovie running together would use a hell of a lot of CPU, which would slow down my Mac and limit what processes I can run in either.

I also run the programs at different frequencies.

And I wasn't initially planning on doing one take so I didn't have the camera on.

Oh, and I hadn't done it like that before so I didn't bother trying it.

And finally, why does it matter to you?

Thankfully, most people who watch my videos don't care that the audio is very slightly different to the video. If I had a guitar cable plugged in on the video then chances are you wouldn't even have noticed.

The guitar tones don't even match FFS. You should be able to tell right away


What a boob.

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to notice when your hand aren't matching up....okay.

I like how you're talking to me like I have no idea how computers work or DAWs.

Wait so is he saying he doesn't like it because he thinks I am air guitaring over the original song? Or is he saying he doesn't like that the video and audio are two separate takes?

People confuse me

I don't care how much you know about computers or DAWs, that is irrelevant. You however seem to care a great deal that a guy on an internet forum has a video on youtube in which the video and audio were recorded separately.
