Error when updating your profile (08 Sep 2018)
When you try to update your profile, you get an error from the server. This is a know bug, which is caused by incompatibility between the website template software and the forum software. The developers are working on a fix. Hopefully the problem will be fixed before October. Until then please contact a moderator if you need to update your profile. He or she will help you.
Possibly worth recording the backing into the sequencer, and then doing it with a full-on Gary Moore type soaring lead guitar with your left hand able to do the bends! Just make sure you add some echo to the distorted guitar..!
That might be fun, too!
BTW, love Phil Lynott's voice on the Thin Lizzy version.
Like I mentioned, my performance is based on the Shadows-version, which is a very 'clean' one without distortion- or overdrive-guitars.
I'm just an hobbyist, playing at home, no gigs outside, therfore I hope that more forum-members will send performances to this rendition-topic.
Kind regards from Belgium, Ludo
I just think a lot of arranger players, because they tie their left hands up inputting chords, miss out a lot on the nuances that many instruments have using bends, scoops, small intonation changes, etc.. Imagine the Shadows without the whammy bar! So many instruments bend, scoop, gliss, trill and other idiosyncrasies that define them, and forgoing any of that compromises the realism of a sound...
Roland give us some absolutely awesome basic sounds, but unless you add the performance nuances, they lose a lot of realism. Brass, woodwinds, guitars, solo strings, basically almost anything not coming from a keyboard (piano, harpsichord, clav's, organs etc.) are almost CONSTANTLY doing things with their pitch. To not do those things when you are trying to emulate them leads to them being just a bit less convincing.
Try this... record the same backing into the sequencer, then play the guitar sound while your LH works the 'whammy bar' as the backing plays. I think you will have a ton of fun, whether you play in public or not!
