The final mix is finally there!

You guys did an amazing job as usual and I am very pleased with your leads!
I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I did.
Thanks again!

I like the way you "prepared" the listener to the notes you chose. What I mean by that is that the first notes of the new chords are well brought. Besides the sound which is a little metallic, your lead is well constructed. That's exactly what I wanted. I can tell that you prepared your lead not leaving too much place to improvisation which is a good thing here since I wanted something melodic.

Jean-Mi
Good job on the harmonies my friend! The delay make it a little hard to "understand" what's going on tough. I would set it a little lower in the mix. But other than that you did good following the track. You built a nice melodic feel very appropriate here.

Iluha
The opening of your lead exposed a very nice iea that I haven't thought about before. It works extremely well and catches the listener's ear right away. Your sound works well here too. I like how your ideas are well placed in the rhyth. Good phrasing. Good job!

Coffeeman
I like your choice of notes here. My favorite is at the very end of measure 6. you used the 9th which sounds great! I would actually use that note more and stay on it a bit to add more drama to your lead. Also, adding a little more sustained notes and silence would be beneficial here. Good job overall though! :-)

SilentKap
Good melodies here and good ieas too! A few things to be fixed here, while descending the scales on a few spots there are notes that are not in the scale. Try using a B Mixolydian mode in those spots and it should fix all your problems. Other than that, your lead is well constructed. Good job!

Leadbreak
Great job as always. You did a good job following the scale. I like your opening and some of the sequence ideas you used. One little thing I would experiment with is silence. Maybe place a few longer notes in there to give the listener some time to "digest" what you played. Good job though!

Chast
Good job following the chord changes and staying in the right key. I like the way you built different ideas for each movement. Your sound is a little muffled, but I'm sure you know that. It's too bad because it doesn't serve the melody you created. Besides the sound issue, you did good there.

Matt23
Nice licks Matt. The reverb/delay is a little too high in the mix though. Too bad. It makes all your notes a little hard to "understand". However, I can tell that your technique is quite solid and that you spent time working on this. Your lead is well built and uses good ideas. There is one little note that sounds a little out on your bend on the second movement on the 6th measure. Other than that, good job!

UncleSkillet
Nice tone and cool melodic lead! You did a great job on your first collab. I really like the rhythm placement you used, your licks breathe a lot man. At first, I was a bit thrown off with your lick on the 6th measure, but after a few listens I like it more and ore. Great lead, nice ideas. Very nice job!

StevieRayVaughan
Did you record 2 times the same thing with different sounds? It sounds quite interesting and is proof that you thought your lead before playing it. I like the ideas exposed here. Your theme follows the chord changes well and serve the song great! Good alternate picking technique at the end too.

Bodo
Yeah man, great job harmonizing this. Brian does harmonize his parts a lot. Great job! I really like the way you used some scale runs to emphasize the landing notes you chose. Your lead is melodic and technical, very well balanced. Great job!

Tjchep
Good choice of notes TJ. What touched me the most in your lead are the bends and vibrato you used. There's a great control in the notes you play, that is one of your strong points in my opinion. It's a great thing to have because it gives each note you play much more meaning than without any vibrato. Good construction in the lead too.

USAMan
Another great take here, nice harmonies. Some of the runs you used are very well thought and sound like you knew in advance what you were going to play. I really like the repetitive motif you used on the second lick. Your tone is very Brian May-esque. Excellent job!

Muris
It's always a pleasure to hear your stuff Muris. Your lead is a lesson of melodic structure in itself. Great tone and great left hand control too. I love what you did here. Awesome job! My favorite lick is the second one at the end of the 3rd chord. I'm gonna steal that lead if you don't mind... :-)

Slammer
Man, I love your intro! Very melodic! I really enjoy the constant flow of notes here. There are almost no rests in there, but because of your choice of notes, it works great. Just be aware that usually silence between melodic ideas is preferable. But once again, it works great here. :-)

Smells
What a melodic lead you wrote! This lead is absolutely amazing. It's the kind of lead that the listener remembers after hearing it. It's the kind of lead that makes you want to skip the verse and chorus to get directly to the guitar solo. Perfect!

Preownedguitar
Good construction here served by a good technique. I like the precision in your bends man. One thing you can try to make this even better is to add a little more silent spots so that he listener can "digest" what your instrument just said. Other than that, you did a fine job. I like your vibrato as well, it gives each note more character.

Soulstone
Your lead is very different than what I expected, but it sounds very good! I love the sound you used, nicely compressed. Your phrasing is quite interesting and melodic. Your focus on the melody is always present and your faster runs support the theme you exposed very well. Great job!

Axelsson
I know you're frustrated with your sound, but still you managed to build something pretty cool with what you have. I like the construction in your lead. The ideas are well linked together and make sense to the ear. The last part on the last 2 measures need a little rhythm placement work, but that's nothing you can't fix. You are doing great, keep it up! I know that with the right gear you'll gain more confidence in your playing. Keep up the good work!

Eddiecat
Nice melody and good technical interventions. Your guitar is a little out of tune though, but your take is still enjoyable! I like the opening of your solo, I also love the second part on the 5th measure. It gives the theme a second boost very pleasant to the ear. Nice work my friend.

My take is mixed starting at a different part of the song than I actually started at and it sounds off time... no worries. Great Colab as always...Had a blast.
Thanks.

Great job everyone.

Btw David, I think you got the order mixed up ^^^

the solo after Muris is Smells, I think, because my solo is the second one after Muris.

Thank you David for the collab and the nice comments.
I know my guitar is a bit out of tune, especially after the 10th fret on the 3 high strings.
I don't really know why, I guess it needs some fixing.
What are the possible reasons why it could have happened?
However, thank you once more.

Eddie

Some really incredible emotional leads in this one...

I had alot of fun writing my lead for this collab, as this melodic emotional kind of music is my turf.
Thanks for another great collab David smile.gif

Great job everyone… This turned out really cool. David thanks for all of your positive feedback. The lick in the 6th measure was intended and I think helped to create a better resolve to the end of the solo. It kind of holds you in because you just don’t know where it is going to go.

I really learned a lot about following the melody and staying in the pocket while playing.

Thanks for the opportunity.

"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
