    Who has clips to share?

    Post by VoodooJeff on Thu Feb 04, 2016 12:58 pm

    As I`m working on my first official solo album there are the inevitable outtakes along the way. I`ve got a few of them on video....some are not suitable for public consumption LOL. Here is one from the other day. I was working on a particular section, all of 16 bars long, and I blew it at least 30 times, getting more and more frustrated. I finally had to blow off some steam, and this was the result (phone video):



    Feel free to post your own clips and outtakes! That`s what I started this thread for Smile

    Great idea for a thread and, wow Jeff, what a great post.  The Voodoo name is not misplaced!  Personally I never would nor could play like that, it's an anathema to me! Very Happy  But I hugely admire those who can and still remain in touch with the rest of us mere mortals.

    I'm waiting for more now. Smile Don't leave it too long. Neutral Holding my breath here until I get it! silent Not breathing until you do. Embarassed OH COME ON!!! affraid

    Thank you for the kind words, sir. I am grateful.

    There are far mightier shredders than I (I`m not really a shredder these days anyway), and ultimately what really impresses me, personally, is when someone plays the hell out of their guitar in the manner they set out to do. Style aside, when you can tell that someone has poured their soul into learning to play at whatever level they are....THAT is what rocks my socks. Hence this thread. I like the raw, the unpolished, the outtakes.

    Every time I go to watch your video I am sitting at the kitchen table with my wife and I can't do it... I will!

    I can never play the same thing twice. Even chords. It is not in my personality. Practice? Is that French for lazy? About the only thing I can shred is lettuce. I can't even begin to spell arpeggio let alone do it. I have to many other hobbies that take away from my practice time. Piano is the biggest distraction. But a really good one!

    Nice Jeff! Great control and really tight. The action on that bad boy must be fairly low. What kind of axe is that? I know I have seen that headstock somewhere before... (duh! I just looked at your signature)

    I'm off to Miami until Thursday so everyone behave themselves! Better yet, get it out of your systems so that I can deny it all!

    Thank you Smile

    Yep, Brian Moore guitar. The action is comfortable, not crazy low but too low to play a slide on. Amazing guitars.

    Here`s the birth of a new song called "You Said it All (Without Saying a Word)". This is just the foundation of the tune. It starts wit Cmaj9, moves into F#Maj7/C# (lydian) for the "B" section, then into Gm9 (dorian), then the solo will be in Cm (minor/dorian) before coming back to C major again. This particular tune is written for a very special person whom I miss very much that isn`t with us any longer. I wanted a nice, soft yet positive instrumental.
    Took me a while to get in a place to find the right melody. With the acoustic guitar through the looper, this one just unfolded in my lap. Obviously just a rough capture of the idea, but I like it so far Smile

    and another (I am genuinely hoping some others will contribute to this thread!)
    This one is a test drive of my new looper. The goal is to get it to sync to the drum track in a live setting (EHX720 Looper)
