    Hey guys, i finished the beginner section of the program! That is 17 weeks of lessons.  So here’s my “Final” for this section.I used the Am pentatonic scale that was taught to help my finger coordination in this song. Some members were saying that the songs don’t include the solos, but why not ? I did the long version of the solo here!

    MY guitar panned left, song panned right

    Now off to Intermediate land!

    Sounds good two thumbs up for where you’re at. Did that panning work? I hear the song in both channels.

    I'm an intermediate student of Metal Method. I play seitannic heavy metal. All Kale Seitan! The glutens will be eaten with relish!

    ^ It’s 80% panned left and the song is 80% panned right.
    My other friend didn’t like the hard pan, so I kept a compromise.

    Actually most youtubers i’ve seen don’t even pan

    Thanks all for stopping by and commenting!

    In that case consider posting 2 versions, if you want. Personally I find it quite hard to critique fine details without completely separating the channels. The benefits of digital production.. as many versions as you want.

    you can always download this.

    load it into your daw and record all the guitars yourself.

    \m/

    rock and roll ain't pretty; that's why they picked us to play it.

    ^ I don’t like any of the backing tracks, they don’t ever sync to the track , are off, too long, too short and never the right bpm.  So I won’t use them, but thanks!
    I tried putting a click track to most of the backing tracks on YT and its never on time.
    Even that one is 5 seconds too long. Even the ones that were exact in length the drums never hit on the metronome on time 😛

    But I already posted a hard pan above, superblonde can use that! Password is: !AIRcA3C5O17XLN-FhRv10OwIGHqAnRlPImENZKSuSyQ

    Ok. The one thing that really stands out, is the really good match of guitar tone.
    I haven’t tried to play ACDC yet (I’m not sure it could fit on my own list, because I try to learn songs I can sing too, and I doubt I’d do ACDC justice there). I could point out things that stand out to my ears, like timing in specific spots. But I think all the details would resolve by playing it every day for a couple months (tho, I’d say keep playing at 80% speed for a while). It’s definitely already as good as the beginner bands I’ve heard. Did you set a goal to play some songs at an open mic for example? This one would be good because you could find a solid backing track with guitar completely removed, play along to the backing track, and it would be a huge crowd pleaser.

    I don’t like any of the backing tracks, they don’t ever sync to the track

    I’m not sure I understand the concern there. As long as the drums are good tempo (and sound good, not lame), and vocals are good, then it should be possible to make a good cover. A few songs, like Paranoid, I was learning to a backing track that had a different outro than the album version. No big deal (well, it was confusing at first), I learned both endings and played the appropriate one. Then I started using a Paranoid midi track to do both guitar and vocals, and the midi track had a totally different verse-and-outro length.. again confusing at first but I learned it that way too.

    It kind of seems like wasted time but it isn’t, really. Playing with other people, they’ll sometimes do random different versions like that and it’s important to be able to sync up. Plus, supposedly, it helps learning in general, to shuffle the deck a bit.

    When I learn songs now, I try to find 2-3 slightly different versions to practice to. Album version of course, then an old ‘original era’ live version, and a ‘new era’ live version or maybe someone else’s live version cover. I play along to all 3, then ultimately, pick the one I like best, to base my own final version on. So far the ‘big’ differences have only been things like, the tempo difference, or maybe 1 song section moved around or cut off. Mostly I like the live versions because the drums seem most natural.

    Hey, great job!

    I look forward to posting my first video sometime in the new year, most likely Zeppelin.

    I liked your natural/relaxed (at least from my perspective) playing style!

    One thing I noticed is that since you were playing along with the song, a few times you seemed to be playing cacth-up to the chord changes or cutting them short, by a fraction of a second. I find my self doing that when I play along!

    I agree with superblonde. You should be able to play along with any track. In real life, bands tends to play their songs at different tempos in concert as opposed to the recording, and in addition, sometimes the tempo changes due to the drumming. Rarely do they play exact tempo to the recording.  I have sat and watched live jams and I think the hardest part for a lot of bedroom guitarists is adjusting their timing to the group of people and even worse, having it change during the song simply due to human “error”. That’s the nature of live playing.

    I liked your guitar tone! The Young brothers use hardly any gain when playing.

    Thanks for sharing!
