NICE!!! Now this one you pretty nailed as far as I can tell. I remember doing a solo to this backing as we did it as a collab so I'm quite familiar with it and you got it!!! good muting while picking, good overall form and technique. Solid 8!

Hi mate!

You did a great job with this lesson!! All the different parts sound tight and clean and I don’t really note any issue to fix or improve regarding your technique and overall playing.

It’s a flawless victory!!

Hey there!

This is a very very well prepared take. It's definitely on teh top of the scale when we think of you as as student. Now let me treat your liek a pro and spot just a few tiny details that would metter if you would be recording pro album in the pro studio smile.gif (It's all a compliment just to be clear)

1. Not only equality in tone and time of hit moment, but also precision of muting the note down matters. When you do the double tracking, you need to establish first on which particular beat in the bar you will grab strings to mute them. It's also recommended to do the muting exaclty same way as in first take(left panned guitar for example). In other words we need to be same precise with both - starts and endings of the notes smile.gif. I'm referring to the end of your video.

2. This is subjective but being in the pro studio I would probably consult/brainstorm the pitch of melody. Somehow it sound like a little too low comparing to backing guitars. It can happen becasue when we play heavy riffs, we often make the track soudn a few cent up with the pitch, because of increasement in picking strength and fretting notes strength. so even if you tuned your guitar well, some playing factors affect the audiable pitch. These things are being taken care of in the studio and it's not so obvious - that's why I share it with you.

3. In the first few runs of the intro riff, there is a little too much mess going on with the left hand and you can experience some unpleasant scratching noise and other kind of disturbing sounds. Scratching noise is sometimes unavoidable but when it's exactly same in both channels, it doesn't "hurt" that much. In your first runs it's irregular and it affects the consistency of doubletracking.

4. Another subjective one - I would probably go for a little less gain - I'm missing some chunky-crunchy impact but that much saturated tones are also being used so let's not necessary consider this to be something wrong.

Generally...nice work and remember - the more you can, the more people demand...and that's actually something good smile.gif
