Hello Jose,

Man I love this lesson. I had quite a bit of problems with the screams in the first chores, so I left them out for this recording. Plus I did not use your backing to this, I had a problem with starting on time. This is my first attempt at recording multiple tracks, and the sound is a little poor. Well anyway could you give me your opinion please.

P.S. Could you give me some pointers on making that screaming sound, I can get it on the higher strings but not the lower.

When it comes to single coil pickups, well to be honost I'm not sure. I have a BC Rich Worlock Bronze series, it has the original pickups I believe (I got it used).

Those would be humbuckers. (the wide ones) What are you playing thru?

To get the really good squeals you are better off with more gain. See if you can dial up the distortion on your amp. And make sure the volume on your guitar is on 10.

Hey Melted Graphics

Sorry for the late reply, I haven't been very active on the forums lately, there are times when I get really busy, and lately its been hell.

Enjoyed listening to your take, the drums sound a little funny they are shuffled, you should try using another backing, that makes the tune sound different, but actually gave me some ideas for a shuffled metal laugh.gif

I'll provide you my backing drums for you to practice, it will make it easier for you to follow the.

The pinch harmonics are accomplished by hitting the string with the finger right after you hit it with the pick, try doing this in different parts of the string, it gives different sounds, as a matter of fact I did it at different location when I doubled to get a wider stereo sound.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply Jose,

I really got into this lesson, being that this was my first upload, it really inspired me to practice a lot more. I would really like it if I had your backing to do another recording of this, that would be really cool. I'm using my Boss Micro BR to do the recording and the drums, I have'nt quite got the hang of recording with it yet, the recording don't sound the same as when I playing. Plus I have'nt been able to find really good drum beat on it yet. Do you have a suggestions on where I could find better drum beats.

Thanks,
Meltedgraphics

Here is the backing track I used, I included the click at the beginning so that you can tell where you are, when the drums kick in the click is gone. Hope to hear your take with this bt soon

cheers
