This is my first ever entry in an online music contest! The challenge was to write a 40-second soundtrack to the picture shown at the end of the video. I took the opportunity to write another tremolo etude to demonstrate my hybrid approach to the classical tremolo:
EDIT: re-uploaded with correct audio-video syncing.
EDIT2: and here are some tabs
The picking pattern is
Down, mid finger pluck, Down, Up.
It is important to maintain a “DWPS/escaped upstrokes” setup throughout.
I did many takes and then had a crazy idea: what if I could find two takes that went well together for stereo double tracking? This was very unlikely since I recorded the tune without a metronome, but after a lot of auditioning I found three takes that I think work pretty well: to my ears, the slight phase issues are not too disturbing and add a sort of eerie atmosphere. But of course your experience may differ
Hope you like it and will be back soon with a post on the signal chain (everything is done with amp sims and VSTs) - I had to do quite a lot work to get a tone in the ballpark of a classical guitar!
Edit: this is a short tutorial I made a while ago about the technique:
