More Than a Feeling Free Lesson Video

Hey guys!  Instead of using a 12 string guitar in this video, I decided to use an entry level Moukey acoustic sent to me from the kind folks at Donner.   I was very surprised at the sound I was getting considering the price tag on this instrument.  It sounded great when I mic’d it, stayed in tune, and the neck/action set up felt great in the palm of my hand.  Much better than what I started out with (Sovereign Sears Guitar).  Donner has some back to school sales happening now so if you are a beginner and looking for some really good deals, there are some links in my description worth checking out.

In this song, I paid special attention to Tom Scholz’s lead playing and I was blown away by his feel and sense of vibrato.  And his tone as well!  Just an all around amazing player and I have strong appreciation for him being a mastermind in the studio.  With the verse’s, my picking pattern differs from his and you can choose an approach that you are comfortable with.  I used strictly alternate picking (down, up, down, up) as the pattern and felt very comfortable playing it this way.  If you are new to picking chords, you may choose to pick in the direction you are going which is also known as economy picking.

Vibrato is a must in this tune.  Maybe I should do a video specifically on that technique?  Might be cool.  My approach to using vibrato is to do like a twisting motion (like turning a door knob) instead of forcing it from the fingers.  This song is definitely more about the feel from your vibrato and bends than shredding it up.

Are there any more classic Boston Tunes?  Or even so, are there any more Classic Epic Rock Tunes?  Did I cover them all?  Leave a comment below!

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to More Than a Feeling. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
