Mission Impossible tapping video

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by ChiliPepper, Sep 7, 2005.


  1. Hi,

    i recorded the video this afternoon . Keep in mind that i play 6 string for 2 weeks and i wasn't even done with the 4 string version. I had to rearrange some stuff for the 6 string. Maybe some of you dig it .
    It's a small file so it shouldn't take too long :cool:

    Thanks :)

    I liked it, still a little choppy; but as you a said it's something you're working on.
     
  3. Thanks. I'm still in the ''getting used to 2 more strings'' phase :D

    Before going much further, I'd sit down and figure out:

    1. what time signature is the original in?
    2. what time signature is my arrangement for? (is it the "U2 version?")
    3. what time signature(s) am I playing it in? :)
    4. try recording when playing just the left hand part, then just the right hand part, then both together. What changes?
     
  5. hmm...thanks for the input :) 'll see what i can do but right now i'm focusing on playing songs that i could play on the 4 string. It helps to get used to 2 more strings :D

    ...and i'll start with this books soon

    wow, what kind of bass is on the cover of that book?

    ... nice tapping BTW!
     
  7. for the tracks on the cd he used a Warwick Streamer 1 . The book was published in 1998 :eek: ( which really surprises me )

    I'm almost positive that the bass on the cover of the book is a Ken Bebensee.
