ok, thanks for everyone who took part and listens to this tongue.gif

UNFORTUNATLY.
i have had ALOT of trouble with this collab and very little amount of time to fix things due to uni work so i apologise in advance for the bad mixing and organisation (but enough of my excuses)
the main thing you will notice is that i've had to get rid of the drums since my software broke and the backing went out of time (dont ask me how, i have no idea) so i want EVERYBODY to imagine the drums are there lol

also, if the volume levels are a bit off, im working from 1 speaker as my main speakers need new wires (thanks to my little canine friend and his likeness of chewing things)

i have changed the layout since i did not recieve 2 peoples inputs so the first verse is now an into of sorts and the last chorus i played myself.

COMMENTS

Samhook
first of all, i liked the solo very much apart from the first few notes, down to opinion i think tongue.gif
the tone you used was very trebely and it was cliping a little, only minor problems. i liked the middle part the most where you made the solo follow the rythm for a few notes.
this is very much the kind of solo that i would write tongue.gif
i would have liked to have heard a little more variation in the last part but overall a great solo.

i have to admint, the verse seemed very hard to solo over.
you admitted that you wernt very good with the guitar *YET* which was a bold move when you wanted to try this collab. even though some of the notes you played didnt sound very well, you put ALOT of effort into this and it definatly showed in your writing. i can hear the solo that you wanted to play and it sounds brilliant for this verse, unfortunatly whats in your head and what your fingers do arent "quite" at the same level yet.
keep working with the lessons on GMC and you'll be throwing brilliant solos out everywhere.
a few slides and a better tone would definatly make this sound alot better.
if i were you, i'd come back to this in a few weeks time and re-record the solo. this could show you how much you have improved since you first recorded this. keep at it!

Smells
Dare i say anything? if i do i'll get a new name lol
I have to say, i loved this tone (its on my X3 now) and the playing was amazing.
sweeping was brilliant, the bends were emaculate (not sure if thats the right spelling tongue.gif). the only part of the entire solo that wasnt jaw dropping (in my opinion) was the last run which was a tiny bit out of time (although that could have been my fault when the software broke)
A- tongue.gif

This tone was clipping a little but you got a great feel for the breakdown, slow starting where the tone definatly suited the feel. i think the bends were well placed and i loved the build up.
theres not really anything i can say was wrong with this, it suited the part of the song, was well played and had a great tone.

Muntahunta/Manhunta/Mintymuncha/etc
im not gonna comment on myself but if anyone else wants to, feel free, i like constructive critesism tongue.gif

So, thanks again for taking part and i hope to work with you guy's again.

also, i'll say sorry again for the delay/quality of the mixing and im not gonna make any more excuses tongue.gif

Cheers
Chris

EDIT

errmmmm, ok, the solos havent been included :S

EDIT 2

ok, no idea why but it didnt want to add the solo's in, hoping its fixed now.

It was a small but great collab smile.gif too bad about the drums though..

Thanks for the comments, I think the only problem with my part is that it's too ununique.
and great job on you'r part smile.gif

Superb job munta! I love it!
You were my first collab leader, you realy did a great job, turning my part into something.

if you want comment, I'd say the following:

I don't exactly now what you did your solo on.
The rythm sounds realy nice! There are some little points with the mixing. The first solo realy blends nice with the BT, then Kaznie comes, his solo comes a bit "hard" in. You might fade it in better. That's the main problem on some parts, it doesn't realy blend in with the previous part. I agree that that's a realy hard part of the mixing, actually that's all the mixing:P

Maybe I sound a bit negative, but the little thingies don't weight as much as all the good things, which is everything but the things I just mentioned.

I know you had busy time with the uni, so no problems!

Munta: I loved it, and I love the song!!!!

glad to see the problems didnt put too many people off then tongue.gif

once i get my equipment sorted i might try a different style of collab.

for some reason my pc had a fatal error while exporting the mixdown, maybe thats why the solo tracks wernt included. i dunno, its all good now though tongue.gif
