https://soundcloud.com/tunein-toneup/guitar-lesson-32-what-can-we-take-from-the-style-of-david-gilmour

In guitar lesson 32, Dan and I take a look at some general ideas which you can take from David Gilmour’s playing. He plays with such meaning and purpose and the most incredible tone and yet what he plays is not usually technically too difficult. Using a style backing track, Dan and I look at how Gilmour uses dynamics, phrasing, bending, vibrato and intelligent note choices deeply connected to the chords which he plays over. We hope that this type of exploration, rather than note for note copying, will help you to actually be able to incorporate some of this in your own playing.

Main timings
02:29 Initial thoughts about Gilmour’s playing style
10:16 Backing track jam 1 with lick trading and improvising from both Dan and I – This is the shortened version (go to our website to hear the whole thing
11:56 What can we notice from trying to play with Gilmour in mind?
17:09 Think in terms of notes rather than scales
27:25 Incorporating bass notes
28:48 2nd Backing track improvisation
33:00 Gilmour: Flangers, choruses, MXR Dynocomp, delays and reverbs for atmosphere, MGP SPC, powered pickups
43:53 Bending exercises
49:13 Theory on vibrato

Detailed timings:
00:33 INTRO
01:26 START
02:29 First thoughts from both of us considering what it is about Gilmour's style that is so enthralling and popular
02:51 EXCERPT Shine on you Crazy Diamond
09:33 so what we're gonna do is take a style backing track and improvise over it to see what Gilmourisms come out
10:16 Backing track jam 1 with lick trading and improvising from both Dan and I
11:56 What can we notice from trying to play with Gilmour in mind? Dynamics, space, bends, pentatonic patterns, swapping notes, positional playing, economical playing
13:56 EXCERPT Comfortably Numb
17:09 Players looking for things in the wrong places - think in terms of notes rather than scales
19:26 For example, play minor pentatonic over Blues but just include the major 6th
22:19 Connecting to chords by thinking about the notes, targetting and listening carefully to the chords you play over
22:28 EXCERPT Echoes
27:25 The rich, gutteral, growly, gritty bass notes and using them when others don't so much
28:48 backing track again just after sorrow
30:52 Using the volume and tone pots to peel it back or let rip
31:19 RECAP: bass notes, volume and tone, listening, effects
33:00 Gilmour: Flangers, choruses, MXR Dynocomp, delays and reverbs for atmosphere, MGP SPC, powered pickups
34:11 EXCERPT Sorrow
37:23 He manipulates his sound with effects to take his bluesy style and make it more psychadelic, atmospheric and spacey
39:09 EXCERPT - Time
40:34 Any questions: I ask Dan about big slides and interpositional pentatonic playing, bending and vibrato
43:53 Bending exercise 1: Go up the major scale in bends using each string
45:56 Bending exercise 2: bend a whole tone then a semi-tone and back down the notes
47:03 Bending exercise 3: Pentatonic blues lick
49:13 Theory on vibrato a) after a bend vs b) from a static note - the string must return to the 'zero' point
51:37 Same problem as vibrato with tremolo bar systems - i.e. don't hold onto the bar

Guitar Lesson 31: Double stops, intervallic playing, chord embellishments and making it pretty

In guitar lesson 31, Dan reminds me about some of the approaches you can use when embellishing chords, including the use of double stops and different intervallic sounds. You will hear Hendrixisms, discussion on how to connect major scales, chords and intervals in your thinking and some interesting approaches to help make your rhythm playing more interesting. Finally we look at the different flavours created by a variety of intervals. We hope you enjoy this lesson and use it as a springboard to improve your own rhythm playing.

https://soundcloud.com/tunein-toneup/guitar-lesson-31-double-stops-intervallic-playing-chord-embellishments-and-making-it-pretty
https://tunein-toneup.com

Main timings:
5:34 Double stops are somewhere in between chords and melody
11:21 I pick a chord progression – Am Dm F and C
14:30 Build notes into chords as embellishments
30:17 Discussion of old amps including the MAJOR 200W
32:35 Little Wing as a prime example of this emellishment style
36:24 Double stop ideas in open chords which becomes Chris Rea’s Road to Hell
43:00 Demonstration of open chords with chord extensions
45:00 Using the notes of the chord to end your melodic runs
47:41 Double stops being used in thirds like in Brown Eyed Girl
51:25 Harmonising using 6ths
52:52 Harmonising parts of a melodic solo as 5ths and utilising octaves to recreate phrases
60:00 7ths for a jazzy or dominant 7ths for a bluesy feel

https://soundcloud.com/…/guitar-lesson-27-songwriting-tips-…

In guitar lesson 27, Dan and I look at the thorny topic of songwriting and arranging original songs. Starting with a riff I wrote a long time ago and with lots of background discussion about how to write songs in general, Dan develops my idea and gives me some options for second guitar parts and song structure. By the end of our lesson we really have something which I can take away and work on. We hope you like this lesson and will look forward to some further developing of our song next lesson.

5:14 Gary’s riff and the basis for our song lesson
8:30 Discussion of famous songs and an examination of what makes a good song
12:30 Tweaking the main riff
14:30 Starting to consider a melody which will work over the riff
18:05 Exploring the chorus and finding a way back into the key of the main riff
20:31 A potential melody as a hook
26:46 A review of what we’ve done so far
29:33 Further work on the melody for the verse and chorus
31:49 Using palm muting for dynamics
35:51 A bit of harmonic analysis on the chords we are using
37:15 Some harmonic analysis of Bruce Springsteen’s chromatic run in ‘Born to Run’
41:10 Using shared chords to move between keys
44:14 Adding interest to arrangements and including second guitar parts
50:19 Explaining ideas for using octaves and repeating licks

I have finished the actual podcast now, but thought I'd share my fan post, memorial and introduction to Tom Petty's great music. Which is your favourite song by Tom Petty and why? Mine is probably "Even the Losers". I love how he stands up for 'losers' everywhere and demands that people look deeper reminding us of the pride and self worth that everyone has. I also love the imagery in this song! "rocks hit the water like broken glass".
