Hi Rids! I also like your tone here! I would only try adding some ambience fx, maybe some delay. What do you think?

All right, more delay here for my take on the new collab.
Some hit and miss but I like the "live vibe" of it!

Nice mate! I also like the live vibe here, and I think that delay settings are very cool. I've enjoyed your take and the tone's ambiance. I think that we can go for this one, please share it at the thread if you decide that it's the final take.

Hi mate! Great to see a new video from you!

The good side of this improvisation is the main melody which is introduced at the beginning and continues evolving until the end of the jam. This melody follows the chords with thirds (Is it intentionally?). Well done!!

Some comments or tips to improve this jam:

- I still think that you need to work on your tone. The tone has too much distortion for the type of licks that you are playing and the result is that your solo lacks dynamics. You need to work on dynamics, but before that, you need a tone that helps you with this element.

- I feel that your phrasing needs some experimentation with bending, vibrato, and other expressive elements. Even some slides and legato could bring fresh air here. Not sure if you like this guitarist, but I reffer to this type of elements:



Notice the use of double stops, slide, legato, some longer notes, vibrato, and dynamics.

- Your faster licks are not tight yet. I would try to play those licks but at a tempo that allows you to play clean and clear.

Thanks for the comment!

For the melody, I listened to the backing track and this is what cames from the top of my head.
It's pure improvisation and it's a one take , a big achievement for me! Lol

I'm familiar with Mateus Asato's playing but I've never really liked his stuff although he 's a very talented musician.
But I could certainly be influenced by his use of dynamics and phrasing to enhance my own playing.

I will listen more closely to his playing now.

Thanks for the tips.

By the way, I 'm on vacation for the next 10 days.

I will post a new improv when I will be back.

See you!
