> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Here is the audio for my Take smile.gif Video coming up!

I tried to fight the urge to "Shred" and tried to focus more on balancing the lead against the backing and playing off of and with the melody/harmony to create a more "melodic" lead that I typically might play. After all, Slash has a very melodic style so I was really trying to emulate that. I like how it ended up! Hope you guys do to smile.gif

Hi guys! This is the final mix and comments for this collab! Thanks Todd & Gitarrero for taking the take to record a solo over this one! smile.gif

Attached File  Slash_Collab_Final_Mix.mp3 ( 4.62MB ) Number of downloads: 46


Todd:
Great melodic lines and tone mate! You don’t use to record this type of solos and let me say that you should add more of this to your playing. Your feeling and phrasing on this one is very enjoyable. At the same time it sound original for me, it’s not very Slash style, it’s something different but also cool. I like your tone on this one, and I think that this time the FX is set exactly how I would set it. Great job! Thanks for joining!

Gitarrero:
Hi German Guy! smile.gif Thanks for joining this one as always! I must say that this is my favourite take from you for my collabs. You improved something that I used to comment in every solo that you recorded for my collabs. You really used different note values and durations. This makes the solo really fun to hear. I like the two moments that you generated in your solo, a first one played with staccato and a second one with longer notes and longer solos. Every note sound in scale and nice over each chord. Your tone is good but I added some delay to make it sound smoother with the backing track. Congrats for this take mate!


This is the final video!

Turned out GREAT! Thanks for putting this together smile.gif I tried to stretch a bit and focus more on Melody and Feel than I usually do and give a bit more attention to each note with Vibrato and placement, ring time, etc. Glad you liked it!

CHRISTIAN: I'm digging your solo! Nicely played man wink.gif

I just had a great idea! How about a "Dual Instructor Collab"? Where we both work on a backing? And both give feedback? What do you think Gab?

Thank you very much guys!
Gab: I really tried to implement what you told me many times before this time, glad it worked out well biggrin.gif

A two instructor collab would be pretty awesome!

Todd, great solo, it is cool to see you play melodic stuff smile.gif
