Eyal Amir is back with a new song and new course. Collaborating with virtuoso guitarist Alon Tamir, Eyal takes you through all the innovative guitar techniques he used to produce his latest tune: Deal With It –which Eyal wrote specifically for this course!
See how to build solid rhythm tracks. Learn how different picking techniques can be used to create effective musical expression. Watch Eyal and Alon collaborate on creating overtones, melodies, arpeggios, solos and more while they explain their Outside The Box production techniques. Most of all, see how Eyal –in his imaginative way– weaves all of these various guitar sounds into an inspiring musical fabric!
One of the most interesting aspects in this course is how Eyal communicates and works out his ideas with his musicians relying on their expertise and musicality to achieve his musical goals!
Finally, you'll watch and learn as Eyal artfully processes the tracks with compression, EQ and delay to give them a solid place in the mix.
Be sure to check out all of Eyal Amir's Outside the Box courses in our ever-expanding Studio and Recording Techniques courses.
Fascinating to see the thought process and decision making that went into the song.

Nice course explaining some of the most techniques that every guitarist should know mixed in with a little music theory for composing and melody arrangement. If you need a starting point for your next composition, this is a great course to begin with!

Another great tutorial, definitely not your average electric guitar production tutorial. Eyal Amir's approach is very insightful and original.

Eyal does another great job discussing elec guitars - composing for them, working with the players, understanding the capabilities and doing post production.

First off, it's a GREAT tune that Eyal has written. It's worth it just for that. There a lot of little tips that are well thought out and explained... and EXPERTLY played on guitar by Alon Tamir. This is great for anybody. But particularly if you're a writer that doesn't play guitar, I can see how this would be incredibly insightful. I'm a guitar player and I loved it. Also, Eyal is such a friendly sort. You really feel like he's your buddy here. The band is serious and doesn't take themselves too seriously. That makes them and this even better.

Well produced and had a fair amount of useful tips. I would have liked a bit more mic and mixing tips for electric but all-in-all a fairly decent tutorial.
