      Well my friend ๐Ÿ™‚ here is what i use from the start of my audio chain to the end

      Super slinky 9s
      Detuned down 1 step
      2004 SG Standard
      Short guitar cable 1.5m
      USB Guitar Rig Mobile interface
      Laptop Windows 7
      Guitar Rig 5 with a custom made preset

      if i was you i would use your usb interface and download ASIO 4 all drivers then download Guitar rig 5 player which is free or you can trial the full pro version for 20mins a time ๐Ÿ™‚

      I have no idea how your current gear sounds so i cant say what good and whats not

    The bend at 4:57 is a bit flat (I’m not saying I’m any better myself), but I always aim for the pitch before even thinking of the vibrato, I know there’s not much time to bend to pitch then do the vibrato, and prepare for the next note, but overall I think it’s a great effort.

    I’ve just always used 10s since they don’t break as much as 9s IMO. I think angus uses 9’s but since starting playing alot of AC/DC I just stuck with the 10s. Getting used to them now.

    Not bad, yes I am finding angus vibrato bends are hard to master. I detuned semitone too but didn’t like it, I was over bending, I’m just sticking to regular tuning and sticking with it on 10s.

      wow 10s why not 9s? ๐Ÿ™‚

      i find i just aint got the right amount of strength to initiate a vibrato quickly enough i think if i stick with the lower tuning i can achive the vibrato i want then slowly over time increase the tension

    ploaded this one because i think the ending solo vibratos are my best so far, only due to that fact my guitar was detuned 1 step thus reducing string tension making it easier to bend the strings just like they did at River Plate

    few mistakes in the performace but still througly enjoyed, i did do a few more but this one stood out to me

    i have been working on my vibrato more recently putting in more from the wrist and not the fingers and this performance is the outcome ๐Ÿ™‚
