AC/DC’s “Gone Shooting” Older Video Tutorial

06 Nov AC/DC’s “Gone Shooting” Older Video Tutorial


This video was shot in my former recording studio, Studio58a.

Guitar used here was my 1970 Gibson SG Standard played on a reissue Marshall head and cabinet, being a 1987XL Modified by David Bray and a 1960B cabinet with reissue (at the time) G12Ms.

This YouTube (originally) video was my own response to this video (now on solodallas.com), that is, me playing “Gone Shootin'”, one of my first videos playing over AC/DC original material.

    In The New Book Coming Out ( The Young’s…The Brothers Who Built ACDC) It Shows A Pic Of George Playing Bass In The Studio During The Powerage Sessions. Apparently He Is The One Playing Bass On The Powerage Album And Not Cliff. Thought That Was Interesting.

          Yes, sorry. A few (not all the other) video links are missing due to a site move, the shutdown of Fil’s old youtube channel and internal site programming changes. I’ll put them back on, but will take a few days.

              We are waiting for parts now. Potentiometers, foot switches and power plugs. Everything else is ready, even the 150 pedal cases are printed and 150 PCBs are assembled. As soon as we get the parts, final assembly will start. I hope we can start delivery at end of March/early April.

    This Tutorial is awsome, one of my favorites AC/DC songs.

    Is it possible to submit tutorial requests?
    Anyway my request would be nothing less than Squealer…

        Alright, I’m browsing.
        About Squealer, i was of course talking about the solo which is just my favorite Angus solo.
        This thing is damn too hard for me (even at a lot slower tempo ), but i still try to play it.
        Thx!

            Well my friend the replica is a “remake” of the SVDS wireless unit that Angus used towards the end of the 70s also during studio recordings of back in black!

            It gives the sound a certain tone that kicks so much ass that even god himself gets a sore rump from it lol

            There are several articals on it here :) Enjoy!

    When I look for tabs I usually just write the name of the song and tabs 911 into google. (Gone shooting tabs 911). On that page you have multiple tab sources for the song. And some are even rated, so you know they are closer to the original. Hope it works for you too :)

    My question is:
    What kind of vibrato does Angus uses?
    I mean is it wide or narrow, fast or slow,with fingers or hand movement?
    PLEASE
    I will be grateful for answer:)

      I replied to you via PM but I think it didn’t work.
      Angus uses all types of vibrato, no doubt. His signature vibrato however – the one he too struggles with – starts narrow and fast, then widens a LOT and may slow down a bit while widening (physical necessity). It’s amazing. I have been listening to Angus vibratos in slow tempo (I use software to slow them down) for years. I suggest you do the same. Audacity is free and will let you do this with ease.

      Jimmi,
      these were all recorded with an Apple MacoBook Pro internal microphone. As plain as that. Internal microphone and video camera. What was particularly good about these videos was the tone, in fact. The reason for this was the “sound” of this room at studio58a.

            Internal camera of the computer, so same as yours. Mac OS X is the operating system, same as mine. The rumor you heard is true: there will soon be a specific application here on sd.net where ANY registered user will be able to “showcase” his work. These videos will be browseable and searchable just like mine, and they will appear in the pop down menu above under performance videos, under “member videos”.

                No, the site won’t get cramped and it is already extremely well organized, structurally, I wanted it to be fully organized and able to grow structurally from day one. It has been designed with this in mind since step one. It’s a “worpress” framework, highly customizable. In terms of traffic and bandwidth, this won’t cramp the site either, since the videos do NOT reside on this domain! Videos will always be uploaded on a video sharing service (it may be vimeo, youtube, … ). All there is on domain is text and images πŸ˜‰

                      Sorry, I thought you would have been insulted by me assuming you would “sell out”. By sell out I mean, lets say hypothetically, you are offered are large sum of money to “make this site pro”. That would involve making membership payment compulsory, monitoring what others say, etc. (eg, Youtube.)

                      An example of a band that sold out (no offense to fans by the way. I myself am I fan of this band) would be KISS (particularly Gene Simons). They drifted from the music and mass produced cereals, toys, etc. Thats not what rock and rolls about.

                      That kind of stuff thats makes us say:
                      “What a douche.”

                      Ah I get it. Thank you. So as in, “putting cheesy, non related stuff just to make money”. No that won’t happen. It shouldn’t happen. While I hope to make some money off of this site, at least to recover running costs, there will never be a sell out here. Also, at some point, IF making money, I will be paying copyrights to the respective song owners. I have been meaning to do this a long time ago, but if no money comes in and I only have to pay and pay, I wouldn’t last long. It would be another failed project like “Studio58a”. That must not happen, or my dreams would be shattered once again. Users will never pay, this is in my mind. Unless I can come up with something extremely qualitative, that I know could make a sure difference. I was thinking of advertising, if I can draw some here, but I’d strive for selected advertising. If nothing of this works out, I may continue with the site as is, hoping to make it. Changes in look may come. I am always looking into improving, and if there is something that can be improved, I will do it. Future improvements though may come with a members poll of some sort. I am not alone here anymore. There is guys here. We’re 3000 registered members as of this morning, just broke through the 3000th registered user. In circa 4 months. Definitely a growing blog I’d say. I love this place.

      Oh, if this was the statement, that is, feeling over gear, then the answer is a straight yes. However, I may have to add some “revolutionary” concept to those who buy their sons cheaply MADE instruments. Real improvement comes with good, well built instruments, not with cheaply made, hard to play instruments. Right now, there are hundreds of good guitars, second or third hand, used out there. Gibson ones. While this brings up other current issues (current quality of Gibson Made in USA instruments seem to not be up to par), I would still buy a well made guitar to a beginner. Struggling with high action, hard to play strings and bad sounding guitars is not necessary anymore in this era of relative wealth. Well made instruments can be had cheaper too, now. Low action, good frets, good woods should be the standard even – and maybe more so – for a beginner to let them progress getting quick results instead of being stuck on problems with their guitar. I have to say I never tried an Epi, so these may be actually good. IF Epis can be setup properly like a standard Gibson instrument, than I have no problem with them. When I was young, I remember cheap instruments were horrible and horribly made, until the Japanese started building their replicas, that were excellent at a fraction of the price. But all of this changed in time. What’s everyone take on this? Might be worth an Article, and maybe Banane is right onto this right now? πŸ˜‰

        Fil, my 2 cents, I have a 2009 Epiphone SG. It’s pretty decent built and feels good to play; I think it’s a good starter guitar at us$350. Seems a bit heavy, but I have never played a Gibson to compare against. Looking forward to Franz’s article :)

    Im not sure, am I right, but It doesnt really matters what guita do you play , 5000$Gibson or For example 300$ Epi. Actually Im playing Epi SG. I have talked with my friend’s daddy and He has been playing for over 30 yrs. He said that most important is to get that feeling, it makes that guitar gives you that powerful notes. He also said that 1 year feeling guitar lesson= 10 years “stone” learning:)))

      It’s an extremely delicate matter. I know the guitar matters. At least, it matters that it is a perfectly well setup guitar. For what I was able to uncover, instruments do make a difference, just like amps do it, recording techniques and gear do it and so on. Naturally, if one doesn’t have chops, no gear will fill the gap. However, being able to play, a musician can be further inspired to magic moments with better gear. I said I have to be careful, because the potential message that could be gotten here, you either have expensive gear or YOU CAN’T PLAY. THIS is crap, and I don’t stand by this statement. I think I demonstrated buying issue instruments that cheaper instruments can deliver more satisfaction than brand new expensive ones or super vintage mint examples. Whatever one spends for an instrument, its quality is never granted, but it surely is needed. Quality of its woods, of magnet, of craftsmanship in the construction because it will result in good necks and bodies that will stand the test of time even getting better over time itself.

      Yeah I started with a really cheap electric and then got my Epiphone G-400 which after making the switch to that I was like wow I can play things with much more ease now and learning was a lot easier. It was a decent guitar but strings broke a lot and wasn’t the greatest for staying in tune for along time but it was a good beginner guitar. Than I got my 1970 Gibson SG and I never looked back. The neck was smaller and better shaped than my epiphone and I could play faster, smoother, and with even more ease. now I am not saying you need a 1970 to play better but sometimes if you can spend a little extra and you will get better quality made instruments but what ever feels best in your hands :)
