So do you figure it out yourself, or is there tabs to live songs like this?
AntPosted at 17:34h, 05 August
Figure it out myself it is the best way not only do you have to develop your finger skills but your ears are just as important!
i never read tabs wouldnt be able to either if it was put in front of me lol

Not bad, not bad at all. Like you said, a bit of a glitch at the solo beginning but better as you got into it. You are following a great guitarist though. Angus’ timing is just freaking awesome. We can all only strive for that as players. Loved your feedback and vibrato….
AntPosted at 14:52h, 03 August
Thanks 148 i dont actualy get any feedback because im using guitar rig and headphones lol thats one downside to using emulation software 🙁 what you hear at the build up to the solo is me turning up the volume on the guitar from 2 to 10/9, im glad you liked my vibrato that is somthing to be cherished 😀

Here again 🙂 my go at Bad boy boogie a major fail on the launch of the solo but i think the rest turned out ok 😛
difference in this recording is i was on the wireless and was running around my living room like a headless chicken (duck?)
rjofigPosted at 13:18h, 03 August
Very nice cover, Ant! Nevermind the fail, it’s all for the fun, right?
I saw the comment before the audio, and I thought I’d see the headless duck thing in video 🙂
I was curious because it’s still very hard for me to “head-bob” to the beat during a solo. Tapping the foot is pretty natural now, but it seems to me it’s a pretty important part of keeping timing right on solos. What do you think? I was wondering if it comes to you naturally or you had to practice. For me, definitely doesn’t come naturally, especially with left hand movement – like a bend+vibrato makes throws my “head-bob” movement to a halt. So it’s part of what I’m focusing on when I try to loosen up more
AntPosted at 14:33h, 03 August
Fun is an understatment 😉 i would of done a video but i was half naked and sweaty its 30c over here in england i dont think it would of be a good sight lol
Timing for me has more recently since my bib video come from my body, more than me telling my body to move it moves itself it leads the way. when you get the groove feeling it moves you in a way that assists with the timing making it tighter and resposive only thing is its very tiring but very VERY rewarding 🙂 much better way of playing i my opinion i can fully understand now how Fil and Angus get thier kicks 😉
its not natural to me it is a practice thing definatly! my head still locks when i hit a bend and vibrato probably always will come to think of it everyone’s does lol but i think the body moving is somthing that comes on its own over time and then one day it will be more present and then you use it to your advantage 🙂
bit like turning yourself inside out if that makes sense 😛
rjofigPosted at 15:02h, 03 August
Hahah, yeah, it’s bad boy boogie but spare us the half-naked part 🙂
Ant, I’m really glad to read this comment! I think I get what you mean about turning inside out, and I want to get there 🙂
Did you have any practice routing for body movement, or just sort of kept that in mind as you play?
One baby step I’ve been doing to try to break this “lock” is to focus on right hand first, very repetitive stuff, but with different timing, just getting the groove. For example, picking just one note (or even a muted string) along a solo , focusing on just getting the timing without breaking the body groove. It’d be great to hear if you (and others) have any suggestions too.
AntPosted at 15:51h, 03 August
routing for body movement? do you mean like what route i take or somthing else? most of the time go in one direction till i run out of space the turnaround then go back lol
i just practice alternate picking for solos but i will actualy do the solo as best i can i dont do single notes kinda things, i do notice with my right hand is when i pick the movement comes from my index, thumb and wrist but when i hit hard chord like an ending chord i hit it hardish in a down stroke motion, with rhythem section playing i kind of flick the strings with the wrist rather then hittin them, it gives it that flowing sort of sound/playing to the rhytem sections
i dont know how fil copes in that small lab of his lol
rjofigPosted at 17:10h, 03 August
Hah I meant practice routine, not routing 🙂
Like, do you have any exercise you practice routinely in some structured way just focused on movement?
AntPosted at 20:56h, 03 August
Lol no i don’t have any sort of routines i just play what i fancy playing at the time like donnington live river plate or studio covers or just some blues playin to a simple backing 🙂
