GP5 and PDF of guitar solos - http://full.sc/1ONcphz
Solos at 2:24 and 3:02 since I think that's what most people here are interested in.

This is my first guitar with a trem, so went a bit overboard with it. And I'm trying out the solid back background for videos, let me know what you think and if I should keep using it; it's just a bed sheet and I covered up the imperfections in post. laugh.gif

I'm using Bias FX for the guitar sim. Too used to just plugging it into my Axe-FX and not needing to tweak anything, so there's a bit of a learning curve.

Guitar is a custom Halo Merus 7; was a bit skeptical of using them at first from all the stories about bad quality control, but after reading about how they've improved I gave them a go. Great customer service and the guitar was perfectly setup out the box!

This is the first time I've tried using fingerpicking in any arrangement; was a little tough getting the bass and melody notes to ring out for as long I wanted them too, so I worked round it with a synth and strings in the background. Rest of the track is just a regular rock cover of the original.

edit: I've got a shot of my fingerpicking hand in the video, any critique there would be helpful too!

Wanted to start it off with something ambient, so I reversed a clean guitar part and washed it out with reverb and delay; layering a piano and string part underneath. Here's what the original clean guitars at the beginning sound like. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3287032...rds%20Intro.mp3

Then because the melody is so simple and repeats itself a lot in the original song, I thought I'd try and work in a more interesting rhythm guitar part.

Picked up a 'Minor 7th Add2' chord from Mark Holcomb of Periphery, trying to incorporate a lot more of those bigger chords into my arrangements; definitely adds something that power chords can't.

Solo starts at 2:08 if that's all you wanna see - Mainly just pentatonic stuff; I wrote it with a bit of an asian feel at the start but once I recorded it wasn't really fitting in with the mix, so this is what's left over. Some sequences, arpeggios, regular stuff.
