Ok, here we are at the end of our collab! We had some interesting takes, some were better, some were worse but all in all we had a good mix of skill level and it turned out really good! Here is the mp3 so you can judge yourself.

Comments



1. Smells

Definitely inspired by Satriani wink.gif That was some cool stuff, played really confidently which is VERY important. You did run out of key in the second part but it is not that noticeable. It was C-Major, and your solo ran into C-minor which did show up but the ending is killer. Love that Satchy scream in the end smile.gif

2. OgranisedConfusion

Your take was pretty good but you’re unsure in building beginning and end. The whole solo is pretty good with some minor mistakes, the tapping part was a bit messed up tempo-wise, but the overall idea was good. About the ending – ending of the solo is really important. In the end of a solo you’re making your last statement and it is vital to emphasize it. Check Smell’s solo for instance – a very firm end, really effective. Work on that and your solos will be screamy wink.gif

3. DeepRoots

The structure of your solo is good. You have the head and the tail of the solo but what you are missing is some vibrato on long notes. The music must flow – so if you add some vibrato to your longer notes it will sound much better. Also I think you should experiment with your lead sound. It’s pretty Z-ish, add some delay and it will be much better, and also spend some time playing around with your distortion settings, maybe add some more middle?

4. botoxfox

Your sound really reminded me of Tony MacAlpine. I liked your solo – both the structure and your lead sound. The end of the solo was kind of floating, sounded like you were not sure what to do there so work on making effective solo endings smile.gif

5. leedbreak

I see you work a lot on alternate picking wink.gif But your phrasing here suffers – you should not overuse the AP – I guess your goal was to make a good shred solo – but shred solos must also have phrases. Give a solo some air, make it breath – short pauses are not a bad thing to do.

6. tjchep

Took me some time to align your solo start with the backing track biggrin.gif biggrin.gif You have a pretty interesting lead sound but sometimes you run out of rhythm. A bit of metronome practice should solve the problem! There is s huge mix of licks in there and I see you like bending and you got some good vibrato going there. Rock on man! Thanks for your solo.

7. Juan m. Valero

You legato-tapping addict hahahahaha Nice solo man, a few wrong notes came in here and there but over-all that’s a cool sounding solo man wink.gif

8. superize

Hey man! The only thing you are really missing is vibrato on long notes. Also you should work on your bending, and make that note you bend to sound firm and steady. Maybe add some delay to your lead sound? Not much – but just to make your lead sound thicker.

9. kaznie_NL

Same thing here m8. You need to add some vibrato to your playing, especially on long notes. Also work on bends – make them more precise. Sometimes you run out of the scale – you’ll fix it with some more practice, and also don’t be afraid of mixing different note length wink.gif
Some delay won’t hurt and the solo ending should be also a thing to consider working on. But all-in-all you’re doing a good job – keep rocking!

10. silentkap

Not a bad sound at all but some vibrato won’t hurt. See you have a lot of slow stuff in your solo and those long notes don’t sound good if they don’t have vibrato applied. Check some vibrato lessons around here and you’ll be well on your way to writing some good solos.

11. coffeman

Like your lead sound! But your solo structure suffers a bit because of your overuse of long notes. See, the rhythm of the backing is pretty aggressive and is driving you to some movement in the solo, but instead – you put long notes in places where you could do better with some faster stuff.

12. gus

What I really liked about your solo are those few seconds in the end where you put in some pick-tapping. Your lead sound is not that high-gain so a bit of delay would help you in getting better lead sound. Also work on improving your bends and vibrato.

13. Fran

Same as coffeman! You overused that one long note and ate up half of the solo. You have quite good lead sound and it’s a shame not to use it for some more melodic and intense stuff. Also work on your solo endings wink.gif

14. Trond Vold

Cool stuff man! You caught some cool melodies in there and I like the sound of your bridge pickup – really screamy! Cool solo construction!

15. USAMAN


I see you were mixing a few audio tracks together wink.gif When doing such a thing make sure to level them to the same volume level ‘cause in this case we have one piece of a solo which is loud and once which is too quiet. You put some good use of wah pedal. Not a bad solo at all – just watch how you mix your audio stuff next time wink.gif

16. Stevie Ray Vaughan

Good firm solo! Maybe you should just make your sound more screamy by lowering your middle frequencies. Also the solo ending is something to work on wink.gif

17. ballistic31

Good solo m8! Simple yet effective construction. You got a decent lead sound. Some notes where out of place but considering it’s an improvisation we can let that go wink.gif Good job!

18. preownedguitar

Definitely not a bad solo but the ending could do better wink.gif Your sound is pretty good, I see you do use vibrato which makes the solo flow so all-in-all it’s good, just the ending to work on.

19. bodo

Cool tapping start – you just have to align it to metronome wink.gif I liked the solo and mix of all the licks you got there. You’re on your way to some good soloing.

20. Muris

Definitely not a metalhead but delivered a good sounding solo smile.gif I see you love to experiment smile.gif Sounds cool man!

21. somecrazyguy

Welcome man! I put you in the last second as we had some spots free. Nice solo, a bit of delay would make your sound even better. Tapping part is really good, and I see you caught the backing track groove and rhythm and you used your solo to emphasize the rhythm – good job and very well spotted! Good job m8!


That's it! Thanks to all who took part in this!
Rock on guys!

Thanks for the feedback, Pavel.

The ending was about one of the first things I figured out cool.gif , but because of a trip I ran out of time to try something more cool for the beginning.
Listening to the final mix as whole I can see my tone was far from killing, mellow.gif ...
Also, I will work more on the bends and vibratos, as you suggested.

I liked the way you put some bridges in the final mix, giving a break to return the soloing part. wink.gif

Thnx for the comment Pavel! I've had more problems with keeping the long notes long, so don't cut them of. Vibrato is just the next step! And I realy have to work on heavy vibrato aswell. Thanks for the kind words are the cool mixing!

hey thanks for putting me in the final mix i really appreciate it and thanks a lot for the feedback. yeah i really try to make my solos compliment the rythm after watching an instructional video of paul gilbert. he explained how a solo can be as fast and shreddy as you want but if it does'nt have any rythm or go along with the rythm in the background then the solo wont be very appealing.
