Burpy does Corridors of time, at last

March 4, 2013 at 1:37 pm

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time, at last Burpy has covered one of my favourite OST’s of all time – Corridors of time! Good things take time and are certainly worth waiting for like Super Robot Taisen OG2. Arranged by non other than the Burpstar himself, this in my opinion is by far the most impressive cover I have ever seen. Listen to it without watching the video and it sounds like several different instruments playing together. What makes this cover so good is that it stays true to the original OST (like all his other covers), almost like a replica, but all done on a single acoustic guitar. How he does the drum beats, bass notes, and melody notes all with just that right hand of his is beyond me >D.

Thanks to Burpy for fulfilling my request and I think all Chrono Trigger fans totally need to see this. He’s sent me the tabs which unfortunately I won’t be sharing but I’m going to try learn it minus the drum beats which are impossible lol.

Development of infiniti Calluses nearing completion

November 3, 2009 at 9:59 pm

I’ve been extrememly disciplined in playing the guitar recently. I have set myself a goal previously and have been sticking to it tightly.

Playing the guitar on a daily basis has been levelling up my finger calluses. When i first started about 2 months back i was on phase 1 – which is minimal calluses but enough to play. Few weeks later i moved onto phase 2 – fingers starting to harden but is going through a painful period as it is readying for phase 3 transformation. Right now im very close to the end of phase 3 and i anticipate if i continue the rate im going, within another 2 more weeks i shall finally reach the Infiniti Phase! the phase in which calluses is so tough it wont hurt not matter how long i play. phase 3 was the furthest ive ever reached, and that didnt last long too because i stopped playing shortly after i got it. But i wont give up this time! i shall reach the infinity Phase and then conquer the world!!

Re-learning guitar

September 6, 2009 at 9:36 pm

Jotting this down for myself.

This week i have started re-learning the guitar from scratch. Im studying the fundamentals and learning the theory. Im starting from the very basics of chord changing and finger techniques and will build up my skills from there.

I feel my chord changes are still quite sloppy, so i will move on from there, lets see how long it will take before i start seeing real improvements! Im setting a goal for myself – 1 month, i want to see what i can archieve in 1 month.

see myself in 1 month time
