Modern & Rocker Collaboration
Final mix & comments


Attached File  Modern___Rocker_Collab_Final_MIX.mp3 ( 4.62MB ) Number of downloads: 751


Hello guys!! I'm very proud to present our first collaboration finished! I'm very impressed of the final mix. Congrats to all the guitar players that participated in this song. As one of the participants couldn't record his solo I recorded the last chorus solo of the song.

I work hard in the mix to get a professional song. I tried to make the guitars sound similar but without losing the original sound of each player.

Congrats again to all of you and I hope that all the GMCers enjoy this song!

Lead players in order of appearance: The Uncreator, Smells, Tjchep, Freatdancer, Slammer, Preowned, Gilmore and Gabriel Leopardi (me smile.gif ).

Here I'll do some comments and appreciations of the participants in this song:



Uncreator:

You began the song in an excellent way. I really enjoy how you started with that interesting tapping solo, then some pentatonic bends and finally a short melody. You worked it very good! The final harmony is also very good.

I liked the sound too so keep on the great job.



Smells:

You melody and harmony is awesome. I have to say that it remembers to Metallica and this is so good for me. The solo has been played with a perfect timing and technique.

The only thing that I think you should work is the sound. Ï think that if try to get a warmer sound you'll record killer solos. One recording tip: When you do the mixdown try to set the guitar channel with a louder volume because I receive a very low gain wav.

But all those thins are technical thing that can be solved very easily. You have composed and excellent melody and solo. Good work!



Tjchep:

I find your playing and melodies very original and that's very good. I really enjoyed the sustain of your distortion and the sound of your guitar. Originally you had to record a solo over the chorus but you record it over a verse but that wasn't a problem for me. As one of the participants couldn't record his part I used you solo there and I recorded the last chorus solo. Your playing is very good and I would suggest you to try to compose the melodies in your mind. Then sing them and finally transpose it to the guitar. I think that you'll find more clear melodies but it's just a suggestion. Keep on practicing!



Fretdancer:

I can hear a lovely Maiden influence in your melodies! You record a nice melody for the chorus of the song. I really enjoyed the warm sound of your guitar! I would have recorded some maiden style harmonies in this great solo. I added a small delay in the end of your solo… Did you notice it?



Slammer:

Your playing is good and I really like the licks that you play in your solo. I really enjoy your classic rock style! (maybe influenced by Slash, Jimmy Page?) I only find a problem with the rhythm in the end of the solo but the rest of the solo is nice. Keep on practicing man!!



Preowned:

You did a very good use of the wah wah. I love the rocker begin of the solo. I think that if you add a stronger vibrato in your playing, your solos will sound better. The second guitar harmonized sound cool. Talking about the sound…. I would say of the same that I said to Smells (Check his comment).



Gilmore:

I can hear that you practice very hard different lick and you make it sound very good and professional. You have a great technique. Now I think that you have to let your should speak. This is one of the most difficult things. Your solos could maybe sound as a combination of exercises in the future. You are doing a great work and you are becoming a great guitar player so now it's time to add more feeling to your playing.

However your solo sound amazing! It's just a suggestion.

Keep on the hard work!



See you in our next collaboration!

Thanks!! i really like Maiden!! biggrin.gif. Ive never tried recording harmonies but i will definately will for the next collab! I also noticed the Delay you're talking about, it made the solo end in an awesome way cool.gif

I didnt like the slide i started with, it was out of time sad.gif, its strange because i use slides always but anyways, it was great to be in this collab, i loved it! Looking forward to another one! cool.gif biggrin.gif

Thanks for your comments man smile.gif.

I really enjoyed this collab. Hah, cant belive I posted it on the wrong backing, sorry man. I understand completely what you said, I really personnally dont think I thought this solo out at all either, and I think If I just sat down without my guitar and thought about what to play instead of jumping right in, it could have come out much better.

I liked your take alot too! Tied the song up very nicely.

yeh nice work guys, looking forward to my first contribution.
It is great as a new member to see how the song evolves and then to hear the finished product.
Good job on the mix Gabriel, the first solo sounded a little loud to me, but meh, that 's just me, maybe because it was so ripping smile.gif

Thank you for you message Chris! I really like the begining of the first solo.. maybe that's why I put it a bit louder in the mix smile.gif ... You are welcome to our next collaborations!
