Impact Soundworks has published a tutorial video in which composer and guitarist Yousef Mousavi uses Shreddage 3 Serpent to recreate a real guitar solo note-for-note.

In the video you will learn all the key techniques you need to improve your virtual guitar mockups, including how to properly humanize MIDI notes, make smooth note connections with hammer-on and pull-off, add realism by ‘dirtying up’ a lead with palm mutes, and more.

Starting with barebones MIDI, you’ll see every step that goes into adding realism and polish to a virtual guitar part; not just how to add expression, but why each technique is important, and how guitarists use them in real playing.

Articulations covered include hammer-ons, sweeps, mutes, pinch harmonics, rakes, tapping, bends, and slides.

Powered by the free Kontakt Player engine, Shreddage 3 Serpent is a versatile 7-string electric guitar with an all-American classic sound, performed by YouTube superstar Jules Conroy (FamilyJules7x). Serpent includes three unique pickup positions with custom blending along with all the key articulations you need, sampled in exquisite detail.

Regularly $149 USD, Shreddage 3 Serpent is on sale for only $99 USD for a limited time.
