The last week of July, I wanted to do a lot of recordings for the Guitare Live website on which I’m active for several years now. Until recently, I used to try to build real compositions with several layers of guitar, several captures, etc… Recently, I wanted to explore the spontaneous side of the guitar playing:
- I listen to the BT twice or three times.
- I press record.
- 2 or 3 one-shots recording.
- I retain my favorite one.
Well as I had to giveback the camcorder I used to have, I took a little cheap camera to shot some videos.
The following video allowed a G-live user to detect a huge weakness on my left hand position… One day I may tell you how I almost lost my middle finger and why now I use the forefinger and the ring finger to protect this poor bastard!
This video was shot for a contest with a nice prize: a Gibson SG. The drawing hasn’t been performed yet… Dammit, I want an SG!
Some random guitar playing? I listened to the BT twice to catch the harmonic landscape… As I couldn’t find patterns and licks to put in, I chose to let the fingers run quite randomly on the fretboard, and I relied on my foot and the wah wah beneath to get something more expressive.
