That said for complex passages I also want what everybody else wants more options and more control - I'm becoming increasingly appreciative of Accelerator but it lacks polish.
Ultimately though I really like the 'get in there and level up by playing the whole song approach even if its no perfect' because it works for me up to a point (specifically complex riffs and solos), then the finer tools we all want are necessary
If you say 'gullible' slowly it sounds like 'oranges'.
Any difficult solo I have ever learned, I have used Audacity to slow it down, learn it, and slowly work it up to speed. For instance, for the intro to this I started slowed down about 33% and worked my way up to full speed. Never got around to the part that starts at 1:50, but I would definitely need to learn it slower. The solo that starts around 2:12 I also slowed down in parts to learn, for instance the sweep at 3:05. No way to learn that cleanly at full speed. If I ever tackle the end, I will definitely be slowing it down.
(P.S. Ubi please do this song you can charge triple because it's so long, I will pay.)
Linking Dream Theater video's is a joke, those clowns play to backing tracks,,,,,thats NOT a real guitarist, a real guitarist can actually play their music live they don't need a CD playing in the background, they also don't use 60+ channels to record a solo.
Everyone learns differently and at different paces and different styles, whats good for one may not work for the other, if guitar was so simple, we'd have millions of virtuoso's around and we don't.....guitar isn't simple like people assume, it's also almost impossible to learn some of the newer bands material because they simply cannot even play it themselves, they are frauds and showman, not musicians.
Show me something DT has recorded that they cannot play live.
I suppose you also feel the GNR playing November Rain live makes them frauds?
As an example, if I play "Sweet Home Alabama" in the chord version, I can often notice a delay of the "note flash" when playing the G chord. This "flash" latency is about the only clue to the actual latency between detection and song. IMO, because the chord detection is too slow sometimes, I ran afoul to the "late" miss.
Not any longer on PSN.
