I think this whole video came out killer. Bleez, your opening line sounds so sinister. Great playing guys

As is customary after a collab, here is some feedback for y'all :

Gitarrero - nice use of Crazy Train again cool.gif I like how you've gone for a full fire breathing take this month, full of AP, pick tapping etc. I would suggest to try to avoid having long pauses in solos as the listener can tell that you're 'preparing' for the next lick .. but that's all - good work !

H4H - Really cool to see you using some legato licks with occasional picking. Is some of it economy ? Can't tell. Anyway, nothing to really criticise or suggest really ! All good biggrin.gif

Gregc1 - Love this take.. that lick at 1:24 is a beast ! Nothing to add - a classic solo from you wink.gif

DeGroot - I love the beginning phrases.. I'm sure I heard a Testament lick in there ? tongue.gif Good mixture of slow and fast phrases which keep a solo interesting. Only thing I'd add is to watch out for sharp bends but that's all !

Ulrik - a very hypnotic and atmospheric take ! Love that video too biggrin.gif Only suggestions I'd make are to try and time your phrases so you're hitting your intended target notes on strong beats and also to work on your picking/fretting co ordination a bit. I'd also repeat the same thing I said to Christian about leaving long pauses. Nice to welcome you to this collab !

Bleez - Nothing much to criticise in your take. If it were me, I probably wouldn't end notes so abruptly like at 3:14 without making it a harmonic or a slide, something with more impact. Either that or I'd make it a bit longer with some vibrato or something. I really dig those opening phrases, they're really anthemic and quite Metallica ! biggrin.gif

Overall, I really loved your input guys, I think we all made this a really sinister and cool track ! I can't see any demons around here now after we gave them a serious ass whooping ! cool.gif

Thanks for the feedback and the (once again) awesome collab!
I know I promised my worst take...instead I decided to give you my best effort at higher speed playing laugh.gif

Well...there will surely be a new collab for a bad take wink.gif Unless the backing track is so awesome again...

thanks for the feedback ben, I totally see what you mean. Those slides you done around the 3:43 mark were badass, really effective.

Again, a really stunningly cool final result! All the takes are really classy and sound EVIL! biggrin.gif Good job, guys.

Thanks to Ben and the other collaborators!

Is some of it economy ?

I think it's more of an "occasional AP" thing going on.

I like that description.. I think I'll start using it as it describes my playing also !

"OK, so this week we're looking at some occasional AP licks !!" biggrin.gif

Just connecting to the "occasional alternate picking" thing..
I think this is how I do it: Attached File  OAP.pdf ( 82.38K ) Number of downloads: 20

At string crossing, there are four pick strokes (I don't see why the fourth is necessary, really, but this is how I do it). The rest is legato, regardless of 2 or 3 notes per string.

Yeah that's quite similar to the kind of things I do... it works though doesn't it ? smile.gif
