Chord Tone Slow G7 Blues
Posted 24 September 2010 - 12:27 AM
I had some problems with the recording because I played it on acoustic but then had to go with it plugged to make a recording, due to environmental noise (in the house) but found I had a dodgy pickup system on the guitar which I'll get fixed. I don't know if that's why some of the double stops sound distorted or not. I should have done it on electric, or with a mic, maybe next time.
I'm following Scotty's advice of keeping it simple, because that's all I can manage at the moment. After this comes C7 and after that.....maybe even D7.

Eddie ... that's from 'The Chord Tone Blues CD' that comes with the PlaneTalk Package. I'm sure you have it there somewhere.

It's hard to tell a lot of things from that audio, but yes, I was using the whole fretboard, at least, up to and including the 12th fret. It was interesting to me that you can make something out of only one chord. I lost the plot for a couple of bars in the middle and had to mark time.
I'm going to stick with the G7 for a while yet until it's really imprinted on my brain and fingers. I reckon if I have that totally locked in it'll be an easier step to move to the next chords without getting lost.
So I'll do a few more G7 experiments using a different recording system and/or guitar next. This was fun, if more than a bit hair-raising - for me, and the listener.

I like the way you let the rhythm track come through while you accent the changes with your responses to what the other instruments are playing.
Thank you for posting it. I'll be keeping it in my iTunes and look forward to hearing future efforts.

Start humming the notes you want to play in your head, and then transfer them to your hands. I mean, starting humming little melodies to yourself and translate those.

Becoming a great guitarist has less to do with fancy moves than it does becoming a master of the basics and learning musicianship.
It's not what you can't do. It's how you play what you already know.
