Good god they're a bit damn good. Thanks a lot for showing me these guys, they're awesome!

I'm off to go learn some of their songs...

hmmm, it's been a while since I've viewed this page. and a whole lot is happening as well.
ok, after a few days at the hospital, plenty of fresh air, and some not-needed "destructive criticism" from my "jerkface-know-it-all" friend, i got pumped up to do a cover that i've been wanting for a while back in late February (the month of LOVE). This is from someone with "NO LEAD GUITAR POTENTIAL":



they say i should take it easy for a while, but that won't be fun. (I'll take it easy when I'm dead XDDD). plus, i think i've been slacking too much. btw, that so-called "friend" keeps on mocking me and the stuff that i do, just because he thinks that what i play is a total waste of time and effort.

oh yeah, thanks for the tab trenton...

You need to find new friends. I can't stand guitar elitists who think that people suck just because they can't shred at 500bpm. It's all about expressing yourself creatively and musically, and if you think that playing songs like this does that, then go right ahead and do it.

(I have a few "friends" who are just like that by the way)

"No Lead Guitar Potential"? What kind of crap is that?


some people...

As I said on your video, you have indeed gotten noticeably better Keep it up dude, don't let anyone else put you down

Music is about passion so you should play what you want to play. I don't really mind if most of the songs I play are anime songs. In fact, I'm having fun playing them.

Potential? You can always get better when you practice. You don't need some inborn talent to play good. I don't really have an aptitude in music since I'm more of a programmer but that will not make me stop from playing.

I agree with BigSmoke. You really improved. Try looking at your old vids so you can know how much you've improved. In my case, it's been a year already but I didn't even budge since yeah I'm not really playing alot this days because of my work as a game developer.

Just keep playing and playing but if there's someone with a constructive criticism, be open-minded and consider what he's telling you since this may make you better. If someone keeps on telling you're playing crappy music, then just ignore them, they won't be of any help.

Anyway cool cover. You messed up on the solo though XD right on the bending part.

More power to japanese music!

I guess its not what you play, but how you play it, but I think in the end you have to like it yourself, but still be open to criticism.

Yeah, learning to distinguish between useful and non-useful criticism is hard, but a fundamental key to continued improvement as an artist. Sometimes you might even be able to salvage something useful from criticism intended to bring you down, but it may or may not be worth it. If it isn't then there's no reason to keep thinking about it. Anyone who was really serious about a critique would explain specifically what needed improvement and why (and preferably how to accomplish such improvement).

Anyway, I've been drowning in work recently so I haven't been able to get to tabbing at all...no eta on the other tabs yet. Pays well but eats up most of my time

well, i'm just glad i got to upload this video before my birthday (w/c is tomorrow btw XDD). wanna boost some of my morale.

thanks guys for your opinions on my situation. i know what is and what is not a constructive criticism. and what my "friend" said was the exact opposite of that. Hard to ignore someone when he's blatantly mocking you in your face with the songs you play. almost drove me to a point when i was about to delete all my j-music songs from my phone. but hell no to that. i mean, he's not very good at what he does either. saying i should not bother learning hammer-ons, sweep-pickings, etc. because i will not even use these in my line of music.
Spoiler for his youtube channel, if you must know:
. i did not choose this particular song to cover because of him. i chose this because i want to cover something for the month of LOVE. my goal is to surpass him, but i will do it MY WAY...



oh yeah, about the tabs. the solo part of the official tab of Singing seems weird.
the X Hammer On thing? i guess you do hammer-ons while palm-muting i think. but hey, don't ask me.

Oh, he's a "shredder"? They're a dime a dozen, and he's nothing special. His playing is impressive, yes, but it's nothing special.

I don't see why people don't just accept that people like other things to them. I love J-Pop stuff, yet I also listen to a lot of metal and rock so I get the best of both worlds. Work on my lead playing with the metal, work on strumming and stuff with the J-Pop.

Still, your friend is a flat out dick, just sayin'


Thanks for the kind words about my cover to, it means a lot

I agree he is good but not enough to be surpassed on. You should aim higher.

This is my favorite guitarist. He's a GOD.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b2mRZW60cQ @ 2:48 - 3:37 for epic solo

For the commoners who just do covers, here's my favorite:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MPcVlh6uEs

Don't Say Lazy is one of his easiest song. He covers Demetori songs (Touhou covers).


Anyway back to your friend, I see that he's using my GO GO Maniac preset XD. I'm not really a fan of his songs. I'm more into Japanese music (not only anime). I find that Japanese music sounds cleaner and more EMOTIONAL. I'm not really that impressed if it's fast what I like is how the song will portray its emotion. So yeah songs with strong vibrato, bends, etc. those are the ones I like. Shredding is like uhhh...it's only fast but it doesn't really portray strong emotions.

For the western songs, I like the old ones. I really like the rock ones but I'm not much of a fan for the metal ones. For japanese songs, I'm more inclined to metal but I still love the rock ones. See the difference? XD


FYI, japanese music uses far more complicated techniques. I'll give you some anime-ish ones (just for the sake of argument) and let's see if those techniques are not required.

Necrofantasia (Touhou) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V10pWwOXUA8
Cagayake Girls (K-ON!) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pIjPXg3X1Y
only my railgun (To Aru Majutsu no Index) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jZX0t8B_Y8
World is Mine (Hatsune Miku) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9udrL7kLrs
Destiny Solo (Galneryus) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cfb1JhM7Qco
God Knows (Haruhi) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17px3pIZTA0
Emotions (Galneryus) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFwiGdw2ayc
No, Thank You (K-ON!) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCaFzvfZVsU
And for you LMB, LOVE (K-ON!) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3Xjl-EAkG0

Western music is great and awesome but it's not the only music in the world. It comes down to your preference on what sounds better.

Help yourself with these links. Ask him if you don't need advanced guitar techniques on those songs. These links used more than what he is playing. Japan is exceptionally good in music.

Or...you can just ignore him XD

To be honest, that guy's in no position to bash other people's taste in music. He covers BFMV for god's sake.

Just keep practising, you can only get better.

Just watch my Don't Say Lazy cover, and then look back to the old version I did about 4 months ago:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg1xcWUrQro

To think I was proud of that at one point...

I guess I'll join in on this as well.

That's just dumb. Sure there's a difference in music tastes (and boy am I familiar with conflicting music choices), but that does not invalidate the ability needed to play the songs. I mean, the end of LOVE takes some "lead potential" to pull off, and you nailed it. Look at far you've come in two years; it's pretty staggering.

"...saying i should not bother learning hammer-ons, sweep-pickings, etc. because i will not even use these in my line of music"
Okay that's dumb for an entirely different and ignorant reason so I'll just leave that there.

Also, without totally bashing his music tastes (except lol BFMV and Metallica derp), you definitely get points above him for not playing along with an mp3 off a laptop, plugging in your guitar so that it doesn't sound horrible, and not having serious background noise and feedback.

So yeah. Take what he says with a grain of salt. You're doing fine, dude.

At the end of the day, it's all about what gives you motivation to play. If you enjoy playing what you're playing, then nobody has the right to say you're wrong.

I started playing a year and a half ago - just after watching K-on. I got a load of flak from my friends for that as well. I ignored them and did my own thing, and look where I am now.

ok, so again thanks you guys for your opinions on this matter. (kinda kept me thinking late last night, as my conscience is bothering me about ratting my friend out). well, that goes to show how passionate you guys are with the things you do and the songs you play. though i feel kinda sorry for my friend there. but hey, just defending what i believe in. (can't really hate the guy, i have a huge debt of gratitude to that guy, and he closed down his FORMER youtube channel, because of so many negative comments, hehehe). and i can't really get away, as long as FB exists.

that's just how it goes i guess. (he doesn't even consider Galneryus as a metal band deng17, it's more of hard rock for him. and yes, that's your GO GO MANIAC PRESET there.). singers drastically distorting their voices until it sounds scary and the words are not understandable=metal to him. at least i know i got some support. that got me pumped up to keep on going to play what i should play. tnx. (pls don't tell him that i said all those things XDD). people have different tastes in music, that's what makes us all individuals. i love the emotions, the rhythm, the feeling when you hear it play on your headphones that makes you wanna play along, that's why i love doing what i do. well, back to reality. (oh yeah, we both started out learning guitars almost at the same time BigSmokeDawg, but i guess you practice way more because you're that much better than me).
p.s.: i had to stop playing those vids on the links before my face begin to melt.


ok so on other topics, i LOL-ed there at the end of the Hikari official tabs (last bar of vocals). that sounded so awkward hahaha.
PARTY AT MY HOUSE!!!

Galneryus is not metal? Is he serious? It's power METAL, neoclassic METAL. That's the metal that sounds very soothing to the ears and the lyrics are so meaningful. Yngwie Malmsteen, a guitar god is playing along this genre. This genre originated from the west.

Is he the one with the "Metal" word on his youtube account (the previous one)?

Well, he's trying to shred but it doesn't sound clean. Seriously, he's going to be bashed. On the other hand, even if I'm not good, I make sure that what I release on Youtube is something I can really play that will sound somewhat close to the original. I barely get negative comments.

Anyway if you're feeling down, look at your old vids then look at your new vids. See how much you've improved. I remember your first vids, yeah I agree it was horrible (out of tune and stuff) somewhat as horrible as my first recordings but we both fixed our problems and became better.

I also experienced getting bashed on and most are cruel criticisms but I used that to my advantage until I get it right. It's a matter of getting back up.

Yup, you can shred at 200bpm if you want to, but if you've got a load of string noise and other notes ringing out then it will sound absolutely terrible, and you'll just get laughed at.

But yeah LMB, you have made a hell of a lot of progress. That Love cover was genuinely impressive to watch because you were playing it cleanly and in time. You ever considered upgrading your gear?

Just tell then electric instruments are a hundred years old and the electric guitar was invented in 1931, and Gibson goes back as far as 1935.

You only do trick stuff for shows, not for music. If you are playing in Germany in the late 1950s and early 1960s, you got to put on a show, the audiance demands a show. If you are playing locally, you need some good tunes. If you don't have the tunes, you need style to get remembered. If that doesn't work, than you need a show to be remembered. At tha point it isn't about the music...it is about the crazy stuff you do on stage.

Hell, without the words, half the HTT songs sound like they are 1960s or 1970s rock.
