TO SEE THIS VIDEO IN SYNC, JUST ADD &fmt=6 at the end of the address link. Thanks to zander1206 for the tip.
WARNING: AS OF OCTOBER THE 21ST2008, YOUTUBE SEEMS TO HAVE UPDATED THEIR SOUND/VIDEO ALGORITHM WHICH IN TURN, HAS RUINED THE SYNCH OF THIS VIDEO. While I apologize for this, you need to know that this is not my fault but Youtube's. I will try to contact youtube about this. Or I might just reshoot the video tomorrow :P
Please note (thanks to Longbow15):" If you copy the address/URL from the 'Embed' code on the right side, you can view the video in sync. Enjoy."
Here it is. Again, apology for having cut this one to start at some point. I am about concentrating on the solo, for a good reason called "Tutorial". Tim had said it would be good closer (reshot) and I like the song and the solo and I thought it would be another good test of Guitar Rig 3.0, using a Plex Patch modified by me (added a boost and played with amplifier controls)
Won't say anything else, to you the comments. And THANKS for watching.
Big Thumbs up To Lynyrd Skynyrd for being one of the greatest bands of American Southern Rock of all times.
PS2: these close ups might be good to finally let you see how much effort (i.e. strength) put on my left hand (the hand that plays the notes). Almost at all times. That strength - controlled strength - is what lets you have in time the "tone" you want, in a way. And lets you get the nuances you are looking for. The way it approaches the note, presses on the fretboard, holds the neck, moves to get any form of vibrato. Suggestion: train the left hand (or the notes playing hand in general) to get stronger and stronger. But ALWAYS warming it up properly.
This one was played with this guitar (I am pasting the ad on rksguitarloft.com that drove me to buy this one):
" Gibson Custom Shop Tom Murphy Aged 1960 HRM Les Paul Figured Top Reissue (2006)
(Item#296)(as new condition) Lemonburst Tom Murphy aged Hard Rock Maple 1960 reissue, this is a Yamano guitar that went to Japan and was then shipped to the US, 8 lbs 12 ounces, one of the most realistic looking eastern maple tops I've had that's covered in figure, very comfortable '60 profile neck and a killer dark rosewood board that's almost black, this is one of THE BEST Historics I've played or heard! This a just a Killer guitar in all ways(and I don't use that term often) Very woody and old sounding tone, real touch sensitive, very fast tracking and articulate, fat and smooth vocal like mids that really make single note leads sing, the top end has something extra that keeps the guitar very clear(much closer to an older guitar), hang tags, blank warranty, Yamano booklet, certificate and brown reissue Lifton case."
Adding also that, PLEASE do NOT ask for tabs. I do not use tablatures. I used to use them years ago. Tabs are a very good thing if and when you need them. But I have studied the type of music well enough to not need tabs.
I do NOT write tabs. I by far favour to go by video. By video, you can watch - though most of the times not closely - and hear what I do, singled out form the record context and pretty much slowed down. There should be all you need to learn. By far more than I had available at the time.
If *I* made it to learn properly a song, *You* can make it, too.
Update as of June the 3rd, 2008
In recent days, there have been a flock of people who urged to let me know that this version of mine was not accurate. Or not played well. Hard to say which one was the original intent (and clicking on those people's accounts would show absolutely NO performance on their part, let alone a Skynyrd performance).
While I do not think I've ever claimed accuracy on this one, I gladly will state that no, this is not 100% accurate and IT WASN'T MEAN TO BE FROM THE START (I, in fact, played consciously other licks here and there during the performance).
While it wouldn't seem such a horrible thing to me (not to be 100% accurate, but STILL playing a decent performance), it seems others it is unacceptable.
If you are reading this, maybe because I sent you here, you now know which is my position on this.
This should probably keep you calm and relaxed knowing that - no - I wasn't trying to step into the original players' shoes and you can still sleep well at night.
