Hey Dudez cool.gif

Time for another audio collab !

I've taken the backing from my Vibrato Odyssey 5 lesson as it has a cool, lazy sounding groove. Just perfect for some blues rock style licks. I'd like to encourage some of the more metal players among you to experiment with a bluesier approach, maybe even try a different tone, something more woody and less distorted.

Attached File  Lazy_Collab.mp3 ( 2MB ) Number of downloads: 120


The chord progression is A5 (root + 5th), C, G, Fadd9, G7

Scales : Am pentatonic or A minor scale works just fine over the chords !

I'm gonna use my Jackson for this one and take advantage of that neck pickup !

Deadline is Saturday 28th April - or I break both of your arms and plant Justin Bieber cd's in your bedroom ph34r.gif

Alright, heres my take.....

Attached File  Lixxx_Lotsa_Backing.WAV ( 4.99MB ) Number of downloads: 85


Attached File  Lixxx_No_Backing.WAV ( 4.99MB ) Number of downloads: 34





I have recorded the backing chords myself instead of the only metronome track from last time wink.gif
Hope this makes it a bit more enjoyable to listen to.


I tried to apply what you told me bout not always starting the lick on the beat or on the next chord, hope it worked to your liking.


Cheers Lixxx

If I'm not mistaken I only get the Justin Bieber CDs if I join the collab, but don't submit a take...right?

So...I'm in laugh.gif

I know I'm throwing away my chance to get free Justin Bieber CDs, but here is my take biggrin.gif
As suggested, I chose a cleaner sound and went a little more John Frusciante style at some parts.

I guess this is not really my playground. But having a Justin Bieber CD planted in my bedroom would be rather embarassing, so I figured I should give it a shot.

Hey Hef !

Nice one, my friend.. yes it is very Frusciante - I like it a lot ! Now we can relax in the knowledge that the collab is safe because the German guy submitted his take cool.gif

H, this is brilliant ! Even though it's not what you would normally do I think you've excelled and this is one of my favourite solos of yours. That first descending run reminds me of Adrian Smith, especially his run in the Rime of the Ancient Mariner solo (when the songs gets faster after the long middle section) cool.gif

ANOTHER KILLER BEN COLLAB! I tried to do this one pretty much "freestyle" and tried to not overthink/overplay per usual and make it overly technical. Tried to be more organic, let it flow and (SHOCKER) use less gain! smile.gif So I did two exports, once with my BEN patch and one with the same solo with a bit more grit/fuzz/wah/etc.. I"m also including the TH1 TRIODE bank that I created while I was working on this. It's 6 different patches with wads of stuff in them. Enjoy!

VERSION 1 (Less Gain) WITH BACKING

VERSION 1 SOLO ONLY

Looks like I wrapped that track up about 2:30 am. I didn't realize it was that late. Time flies when your jamming!

And here is the crazy one from the BEN BANK, with wads of FX and GAIN smile.gif For contrast to the first one which is pretty plain. I dig em both actually!
