Making Guitar Covers Part 1c – How To Use Logic Pro X to Learn Guitar Parts


So this is my project, I set it up as a
template as well so that when I open a new project, it automatically
opens up with my click track, a guitar for the right, a guitar for the left, and
lead guitar. Then I just quite literally
drag the file into Logic and it creates this track here. Incidentally,
on the guitar what tend to do is I’ll have the volume
for the track down so that I can hear my guitars much more. The
only other thing that I add on here will be the Varispeed unit within Logic.
If you’ve got Logic and you don’t know how to do this, go to your Custom display
so that changes what you can see at the top here, you can customize it. Right
click ‘customize control bar’ and add in Varispeed. The great thing
about this is it only changes the speed as well not the pitch so it’s perfect
for these kind of situations and if it’s a tough guitar part say for instance
this one here maybe you’ll start at – 20% you can go up in percentages as well, I mean a decimal of a percent so much, much better than YouTube in terms of how
gradually you can build up your speed and then what you could do if you really
wanted to is take it plus so it is even quicker.
This is +10% +20% and now regular speed. What you can do there is you can build
up your stamina and then increase the speed so that you can play it quicker
than what you have to do. That means that when you come to play at normal
speed, it’s gonna feel really easy instead of normal
speed being you at 100% that you can’t sustain for
a long period of time (potentially), especially if you’re playing this song live,
then playing it slightly quicker than what you need to will make it feel
comfortable instead of it feeling like a challenge. That’s it, I hope it was helpful
for you and please subscribe down below especially with YouTube’s new policies
around the monetization every little would help there’s a patreon link down at the
bottom if you want to help as well I’ll read all of your comments and
please give me some suggestions for songs to learn or things to cover in my
next video. Bye 🙂
