Ahoy there GMC`ers it seems that we have another great collab on our hand! You all made it great, and this one really shows all the hard work you've put into your playing!

I must note that, knowing from previous collabs that we've done you made a very good progress and I can see how your overall tone and soloing concepts are developing and sounding great here!


SO without further adue... smile.gif




COLLABORATION SUMMARY:

Participants: 13
Duration: 8m 09s




1. USAMAN

You started your solo great with that bassy lick, and then going to some fast stuff right away, first few bend licks were great, and then that coming down was a little shaky, then again coming to those bends, quite nice, I like when you go into frenzy with those nice legato repeating lick. After that it seemed to me like you wanted to finish the solo earlier, so the end is not to effective it seems added, but you made it to the end. I suggest practicing bends more, and the distortion is maybe too compressed for my taste.

2. TJCHEP

Nice first melody line and intro to solo, then you kinda lost yourself with lots of licks unconnected, up until the end when you pull out those nice bending phrasing. I really liked those. The sound isn't too bad, too much mids but smooth and ok. What I would do when improvising is find a melody line that I like, for example the one from the beginnign of your solo, and build your solo on that, maybe make some variations instead of playing very different licks.

3. KAZNIE

Hey nice effort man, Interesting pentatonic scale use, and rhytmic patterns. Just don't forget to insert a few bends here and there so it doesn't sound similar throughout the solo. The sound is ok, maybe little thin, but Not too harsh sounding.

4. DEEPROOTS

Nice intro to solo Deep, and nice fills too, you really worked out the theme, and those bends later are very smooth and going well in the solo, you kept it then simple to the end and done nice little run down the scale to finish off. The concept of soloing is going well for you, just need to refine allaround execution a little and it would be great. Sound is decent.

5. SIGGUM

WOw, nice jazzy licks, I like it a lot. ALso nice twangy clean sound is very decent indeed. Those chords are very good and fit in quite nicely over the vamp. The little solo lick remind of Joe's a little, maybe you got inspiration there. Nice work man!

6. PREOWNEDGUITAR

Nice intro, and some interesting developing, those hamerons need to be just little more precise if you ask me. Also the muting of the strings must be tighter. I like the idea in the end of making soem themes based on combination of the same notes. It came out pretty well. The sound is too compressed, need to work on your preset just a little more. Other than that it's great.

7. JVM

wow, those are some nice funky chords. I like it a lot! You really captured the essence of funk man, especially with those repeating intervals in the middle of the solo. THe solo part seems little shaky after this chordal work, but you made it quite nicely with chords in the end. Good job!

8. GUS

And first wah wah participant. Nicely done man! I like those bending licks and the fact you wanted to do some syncopating in the solo, but for my taste too much repeating of the same lick. Maybe throw in some nice long bends or long notes in solo and it will sound even better for sure. SOund is nice!

9. SMELLS

Great solo smells, you're really progressing, I can sense that, also this nice theme at the beginning of the solo is a very interesting one. It reminds me on something but who know what.. Nice lick tho, and legato afterwards is also very good. The concept of the solo is good, but one suggestion, there are many great exercises here, and just make it a little bit smoother transition between them when playing the solo will sound even better. SOund is liiitle compressed for my taste but smooth and not harsh sounding.

10. ORGANIZED CONFUSION

Nice little crunchy playing there confusion, I like the idea how you played with the rhythm to make some nice soloing. You throwed in some exerices that are not built for funk so the speak, but made them sound very funky, and that is smart thinking man. More security while playing is maybe something to note, and try to relax while playing, it sounds a little tensed.

11. ANGELICA

And our brave singer Angelica smile.gif Thanks for chipping in with you voice. I really like the lyrics, very funky and catchy. ALso those backings are a nice touch. About the singing, it is very good, but more security in your voice could not hurt you. Those octave higher singing in the end is a great idea, and with a bit of practice it could sound even more better. In the end you kinda lost the tempo a bit, but it's nothing serious. Great job!

12. SOULSTONE

Nice starting lick, maybe a little messy because of the high gain but I like it. Need to sound a little more concrete and defined and by rolling of the drive it could sound great. In the end you made some interesting repetative lick and a small melody line. What I like about your solo is you made it all sound in one theme so the concept is interesting.

13. JOE CATALDO

Nice take Joe, good solid concept and great starting theme. You practiced that one, and it sounds very nice. In the second part of the solo it's a liiitle shaky but your holding to the click to the end which is great, maybe dropping few notes here and there but nothing too serious. The sound is also very good and well defined, with some nice space effects, little but effective.

MINE TAKE:

I've made some interesting twangy effects in the first part, but later going berseerk, and even loosing tempo and note count in one moment which is not good at all. Also notes didn't came out properly and must work more on my accuracy along side with speed while doing improvisations. In generall good, but messy.






So I woudl like to thank to all the participants! I'll see you in the next collab real soon, and have fun! smile.gif

Ivan, you forgot to add the mp3 wink.gif

Thanks for the comments. I've (I think) heard everyones in the other thread, and you all did a great job. About the solo part on mine, i think it was a little shaky because I tried to adjust volume using the knob on my guitar because it was coming out a bit too loud before... but perhaps that was a mistake tongue.gif Thanks for the collab Ivan.

--------------------
"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Totally 100% agree with you on this.. I really liked the begging and the end.. but that was it smile.gif. The rest made no sense or whatever.

Never really had to really feel the groove on a song, so I was a bit lost.. first take anyways wink.gif.

Thanks for comments though man, really appreciate it. Everyone did so good, cool collab man!

Thanks Ivan, I don't like to much reverb and big ambient effect, they set your lead in the back biggrin.gif

Not really, tongue.gif . Yours were also good,. Your voice reminds me Vanessa Farias, a singer in Emmerson Nogueira's band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm6DkNrRaXs

USAMAN's take really had to be the first, "prepare for launching, 3, 2, 1, ...." hehe

And nice take Ivan...

I love the lessons, but collabs is the funniest part or GMC! laugh.gif
