Seek and Destroy FULL Cover

 

ok this is me on the guitar.

 

I converted the drums and bass from .mid files.

and put them into more realistic sound banks via flstdios FPC.

Its sounds easy, but its not easy to make them sound realistic.

ok i used an

Ibanez Destroyer II axe

Digitech RP255 pedal

Cubase LE4 for recording the shiite

FLStudio 8 for sequencing and midi/vst support

 

ok guys tell me waht yall think.

 

 

Here is the link. Its myspace.com/massrcor if the link doesnt work.

 

thanks

Nice job, well done on the guitar parts. The arrangement of the drumming is interesting too.

You play the right notes, but you play them wrong. Listen to the original riff and compare it to yours. Little more practise should do it

Actually, every note is note for note.

 

During the solo I transposed the solo up 3 or 4 notes so I didn't have to record another rhythm riff that was 3 or 4 notes higher (cutting corners).

Other than the solo every note is the same as the original. I knew someone would notice this. cool.gif

Also, the tempo during the solo is down about 10-15 BPM (I was having trouble Alt picking the solo rhythm then, I'm thinking about re-recording at regular BPM now that I can do it.)

 

and BTW I was looking right at the notes from sheet music and midi as well. biggrin.gif

 

And Yes they strum an extra hit in the main riff, As I just Hammer them on. It doesn't make it wrong, Just listen to what you said.

It's pretty good (of course I don't know how long you have played).

A little more training wouldn't be bad though.

If you would play a little tighter and looser at the same time (if you know what I mean), then it would sound more professional, or better. Anyway, keep on training. colgate.gif

I wouldn't think you would get to the level your playing at without knowing difference

between playing exactly whats on the paper and playing "right." There will come a day

when you can play fast & your mind is unoccupied. At which time you'll be free to put

some emotion behind those notes.

 

It sounds weird, but the guitar is an emotional instrument. That's why songs on guitar pro

sound goofy.. they are being played 100% right but they sound terrible because they lack

that emotion the musician brings to the table.

 

I've noticed over & over again, songs that present a challenge to learn eventually become

effortless to play, and it's not until sometime after that, that they are being played "right."

 

Tone plays a big roll too, can make up some ground by nailing that in the meantime.

I just consult the sheet music when I think a midi is wrong. And besides I only worry about that stuff when a cover is involved... im usually too lazy too look at sheet music for hours... and im not that good with the tablature. biggrin.gif

 

Guitar pro? Never used that (heard alot about it...). I am self taught. Basically alot of looking at midis of mozart Got me to be able to horizontally visualize chord melodies and arpeggiated chords.

Youtube videos helped me alot too... my sweep picking is coming along and im almost sweep tapping pretty good now.

Then memorizing the notes of the fretboard suicidal.gif .

 

Once you know the notes on the fretboard you can just look at any midi, or sheet music given you can calculate where the notes are on a staff, and play any song! or if your not tone deaf, you can play by ear. But sometimes ear method can be too hit and miss...

 

ne way Im working on an original now! This 1 I hope to display more emotion, as sofa_king was commenting. That cover was pretty much a rough draft as far as I go, but they can only get better I guess.

 

Did I mention Im actually a DRUMMER? I'm just a guitarist on the side.

Yea dude, that's why I didn't bother saying nothing the 1st time, your got the skillz, you will get it.

Just felt everyone else was kind of being confusing.

I suck massive ass at sweeps, but I don't practice them.. too lazy I guess, should start.

But that Guitar pro is helpful and you more often than not have the bass & drums right along with it.

You can mute the guitar parts and have fun with covers all day. It's floating around out there somewhere.
