Default A new years hope (wind of change)

Hi guys spent a couple of days working on this. Using my Micheal Kelly. For some reason the setup has moved since getting it done, action has gone up a bit. And the D string still sounds like a old sock. Anyways will have to get it looked at.Listening to the drums. The timing is good but there is a couple of moments when the timing sounds slightly sticky, it kept putting me off trying to work around it.(Its not me playing them)
Anyway hope someone likes it. Once again have a great new years my comrades in arms.

Hi HH as usual its ideas I keep trying to work on. Seem to have this stubborn belief that if I can find myself. I don't need to learn anything else. Which is a little short sighted.

But if I cant do my own stuff well, than what chance do I have with other peoples.

The Kelly with 10s is a very difficult guitar to play. Its very stiff in standard tuning. The action a bit high. But with the paf type pickups. its a real raw dark powerhouse.
did a small key change back to E during the solo. (god knows why) But it was interesting soloing over two different keys briefly. I usually would just do the chords in one key when soloing.
Hope your new years celebrations were good HH

Sounds cool, has that powerful angry (in a good way) feel to the lead, nice job!

Hi Ron getting a intense sound is something I keep trying to achieve isn't it. Not sure how to go forward sometimes. I bet you know what I mean.

Like you I am always thinking I should have done that better. Or if only I had done that slightly different.

But that's a good thing. I think. Contrary to what I keep thinking. I probably should spend months on ideas, and worry less about recording them maybe.

I guess do what is the funnest eh!
I do that too, anytime I record something, I also save it to a USB stick, then when I'm driving around, I listen to myself, think 'OH man, why didn't I...' etc. LOL. Then I'll come home and redo it, the cycle repeats lol
But I guess it's a good way to learn, and develop our styles, to play what we hear in our head, that's the hard part! My fingers sometimes do something else and I let them, dang fingers!

But I love 'intense' sounds too. I gravitate to things like the opening to Gary Moore's End of the World, or Jeff Healey's music.
Even though it's not the wildest most complex lead out there, Jeff's leads and fills on Confidence Man are probably my favorite, or at least top 3, of any song I've heard. I mean, listen to this... (needs LOUD, headphones...) (1minute 15 seconds through 2 minute 5 seconds, is the GOOD part)

I have a guitar similar to yours. I down tune it a half step to Eb standard tuning. It's a lot easier to play on but sounds a little darker.

Yeah its a idea isn't it. I have dropped to D before but I haven't tried E flat which would be all six strings. Maybe I should try ?

Know JH well Ron amazing player is a understatement. But Its interesting you showing me this. He is out of my league. But I can tell if you have the spirit and the drive in any playing. Most of it is finding a faster way to blend the intense stuff. Jeff is a great example of that Ron. Nice One for getting me to think like that. There are others of course Walter trout. Stevie R. The difficult part is getting faster and learning to blend speed and passion its a trick that only months of hard work can achieve. But we have to realize this. If we want to get better. Great convo Ron

Yes good points agree!
That's the trick, making a fast run sound right, not like it's just a 'fast run' for the sake of going fast, then making it work with the 'next' lick, notes, run, etc. So it's almost a wild melody not a random string of notes.

But man yes, Jeff could make his guitar scream, the tone via his technique.. amazing. It's out of my league too, but man would I love to play like that. To me, the tonal phrasing of a note has more impact then just moving quickly, like his lead in note on that lead in that song.Sounds like wwAAAwwAAAHHHHHHHHHH wan na na
