Well first video. And yes, I am a girl. Anyways I thought I would finally do a video but this might be my only one. It was a TON of work... This is my second try at this song so tell me what you think!

Enjoy! :)

so in your previous cover, I

so in your previous cover, I was talking about phrasing. here, I can give you a straight example
see the way you play the main theme? it has too much shifting around the neck and "1 finger playing". you should find and play a fingering that would let your hand in only 1 position, just like you did for the harmony
it would then be easier to play and let you express yourself with different phrasings (slide in, hammer & pull of, grace notes, bends, ...)

otherwise, you're really getting better. the harmony was a good idea to "personalize" your cover
keep it up :)

Hey, thanks for the tips! And

Hey, thanks for the tips! And ya, after I watched the video I noticed how awkward my fingers looked. I will try to work on that for my next recording. And thank you, I hope I am getting better. :)

I liked how you added two

I liked how you added two lead tracks in there, I thought it was pretty cool.

Oh yeah? I just assumed you

Oh yeah? I just assumed you were a guy because of Link/Cloud/Otto all being guy characters/names. Oh well, people keep assuming I'm a guy too. Probably my fault for being afraid to play in front of my camera.

Anyway, I agree with what Rex said! In particular, you should try not to curl your pinky back like that. You should keep all four fingers ready to use, generally speaking. For the rhythm parts, you could try using a pick so you can start palm muting (a big part of a "rock" or "metal" sound is palm muting).

Despite that, I think this is your most pleasant to listen to yet. Keep practicing!! :-)

BTW, what settings are you using on your amp?

You could always wear a mask,

You could always wear a mask, Auri.
I could totally picture a snail mask guitarist. ^ ^

Umm, let me finish losing

Umm, let me finish losing weight before I consider dressing like the Phantom. :-)

Hey thanks everybody! I just

Hey thanks everybody!

I just realized how retarded I look playing guitar! XD And auri, I think you should TOTALLY do a video. I have revealed myself... now it's your turn! XD

I used the setting "American 90s" for the rythem and "Clean" for the lead. Low gain and I usually always set the switch on my guitar to "rythm" not treble. :)

Oh wow, I have no idea what

Oh wow, I have no idea what those are. I thought you'd respond with like, where the dials on the amp were pointed at :-)

I usually do higher gain, and I usually end up using the treble pickup for everything, because it always sounds cruddy when I use the rhythm pickup. I don't really know why. People say it can sound better if you back off on the the gain, but whenever I do, people tell me my tone is weak ^-^;

Oh, sorry. I get what you're

Oh, sorry. I get what you're saying though. Sometimes mine sounds really weak but then if I turn it up too high...

...your house blows up? :-D

...your house blows up? :-D

Occasionally :) Well on my

Occasionally :) Well on my amp, if I turn the gain up too high it gets squeaky. I don't know why.

Feedback!! It happens when

Feedback!! It happens when the pickups on the guitar are too close to the amp. Move away from the amp :-)

Cool stuff, I also had no

Cool stuff, I also had no idea you were a girl. I am as well, I used to make vids of me actually playing but since getting a usb cable I don't bother, also I would rather people listen to the guitar instead of looking at me - I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!

Speaking of feedback, have you guys ever done anything with copper foil tape? Shielding, I think it's called. I thought about trying it on my guitar until I get a new one because that's a huge problem I have.

Feedbacks have nothing to do

Feedbacks have nothing to do with shielding. it seems you can put wax on the coil of your pickups to reduce it though (don't know if it really works...)

on the other hand, it can be good to shield your guitar with copper if you have buzz/hum problems (for single coil pickups mostly). carreful though, its not an easy task. some guitars are really hard to shield (danelectro for example). if you have a classic stratocaster, its pretty easy but still get ready for some serious DIY :)

Well, I have a Strat

Well, I have a Strat knockoff, so shouldn't be hard. And yes I do get the hum, that's what I meant. I know the solution is a better guitar, but why not experiment on the cheap one? LOL

It's totally worth a shot

It's totally worth a shot yeah :)
I'll probably do it on mine soon

Geez, Auri! You are just full

Geez, Auri! You are just full of so much info. XD Ya I thought you guys might have thougt I was a boy. I guess it was kind of a disguise using those names. And ya Breezer, I thought you might have a been a girl considering your youtube picture. You should do a video of yourself too.

I have heard about the cooper foil tape thing, but right now it's not that big of a problem. :) Are you getting a new guitar soon?

LOL I thought that about Auri

LOL I thought that about Auri too...she is very informative! I am considering it, I guess I should ask around and see which one people would like to see played the most. Well, I'm really not sure on the timeframe. I'm getting some tattoo work done on Friday, and I can't put off fixing some stuff on my car any longer, so a lot of money is going down the drain right now LOL (although I consider tattoos to be a very good investment XD). I sure hope it's SOON!

Ya I know! But she can also

Ya I know! But she can also be goofy sometimes. Example: She just asked me if my house blew up. XD Anyways, are you saying you're considering doing a video or getting a new guitar? By the way, what kind of tattoo? :)

Oh, the video. Not sure which

Oh, the video. Not sure which song to do. I am DEFINITELY getting a new guitar lol. As far as my tattoos, I have a 5/8 sleeve on my left arm, it's pretty much done but I need one more session to wrap it up. I only go in once a year so I am VERY excited! Do you have any?

Oh, alright! Can't wait to

Oh, alright! Can't wait to see that new guitar! And no, I don't have any tattoos. I have always wanted a heart with an arrow going threw it on my right arm/shoulder. I know, it sounds pretty stupud. XD

Nah, not stupid at all. The

5

Nah, not stupid at all. The best ones are the ones that have personal meaning. What's funny is the only bad reactions I've gotten to mine are online..but you know how people are behind a computer. What kind of guitar do you have, and do you like it?

I've gots a Gibson Epiphone

I've gots a Gibson Epiphone SG. It's a super nice guitat but it's not very heavy metal like an Ibanez. But if you want a good clean sound then it's a great guitar!
