dude, dont take this the wrong way im just givin you advice, it sounded like you were just playin through a scale and stopping on a couple notes.

if you set up a chord progression and play with the changes it'll sound way better

It didn't really sound "fluent" enough. Kind of like you were forcing every note out... kind of hard to explain.

You need a fender guitar or at least one with a warmer tone. Jazz also has more tempo changes.


Well it's just a start for a solo I'm trying to make. I'm trying to play more prog metal stuff.

Yes I did. If you read the description in the video it says

Ok honestly does it really matter? I thought of it while playing, saved it on guitar pro, and made a video of it, so why does it matter if I "wrote" it or not?

...because if you write a solo you dont just write a solo...you have to write chords to go behind it so you can establish a key, you might be pl,aying in a G# scale, but if you dont play chords behind it it doesnt have a definite end, and it sounds like your just messin around in G#

Look the fact of the matter is that it's a cool little lick, we're not saying it's bad. But it honestly just isn't shredding, you still have a while to go, but after 11 months have started in the right direction. And as you gain more experience and start writing more things you will realize there is more of a difference between actual songs, and just playing various licks up and down a scale.

11 months. I think you're off to a good start. Give yourself credit. You've had the guts to put something together and ask for feedback. Keep developing this and other ideas before you know it you will be ripping it up.
#33
That sound more like just going through a scale. But can you really expect to be able to shred when only playing for 11 months? It takes years and lots of practice to shred at a high level.

Deal with it. You're not that great, and you're asking for criticism. So, they gave it to you and you're started bitching. Grow up.

It wasnt shred. It wasnt even that bluesy.


Add feeling. Its hard to think of at 11 months, you have to get a feeling of the instrument, what its capable of, what you are doing with it. Its kind of like buddhist enlightenment. I dont have it fully yet, mabye even Satch doesnt have it. I guess enlightenment would be the complete seperation of the guitar being an "instrument" where your mind and body are completely syncopated.

I know that sounds cheesy, w/e... :p


As far as im concerned, i dont WRITE licks.
I dont sit down and think of licks to play.


I improvise when im jamming or with a backing track.

That was neither shred nor blues. However, it was very good progress for 11 months of playing. You need to snag up a metronome and play along evenly and tension-free, slowly (SLOWLY) building up speed.

Playing the guitar isn't about playing fast just to play fast. At least, that's not what any enjoyable music is about.

Work on your phrasing. Some very common techniques you'll hear in the blues is excessive use of bending, sliding, and vibrato. Actually, that's something you'll hear a lot in Metal also.

This made me laugh, because it's pretty much EXACTLY what shred is.

Ya I'm already doing this with a few exercises that I know of. Helps a lot actually. But I always get stick at one point.

In that video that's the fastest I can possibly go clean.

no. they are telling you that it wasn't shred. It honestly isn't that fast, was a 10 second long lick that ascended, then descended. Basically all it sounded was like you just played the scale. thats boring. Mix it up, play to backing tracks, find out what to play what not to play. just because all of the notes you played are in the G# blues scale doesn't mean they really sound good when you play them all. If you just go up and down, it sounds like an exercise, sure you accentuated a few notes, but try and make it more diverse... maybe go up, play around a lil on those play some triplet pull offs, some bends (which is used a lot in blues), maybe even some tapping if you can incorporate it well. Best thing to do is DON'T USE THE SCALE TO CONFINE YOU! USE IT TO GUIDE YOU! You might impress non-guitarists with the fact that you play at a relatively good speed for how long you've been playing, but guitarists who have been playing guitar for years and have been exposed to a lot of music (like most of the ones on this site) will know exactly what you are doing there.

Also, you said "yah i wrote it" then later you said It may be a scale and just cause i didn't write it doesn't mean its not good.

The best thing to do when learning to play guitar (which is what you are doing and what almost everyone on here is doing) is to accept advice from others, and when they say your playing is not good, ask why and DON'T GET DEFENSIVE about it. The point of them critiquing you and saying its not good is so you can expand your musical tastes and get a better understanding of how to compose and how to play guitar rather than just a penis measuring contest after each insult.
