First i just have to say thanks to everyone who joined in smile.gif Was a blast listening through all your great takes!
I've arranged it in the order of whoever uploaded first.

Attached File  Metallica_collab_Final_.mp3 ( 8.26MB ) Number of downloads: 528


Here's the comments:

somecrazyguy09 00:01 - 00:26
I really like this one. It's well-structured and captures the Hammet spirit quite nicely.
The sound is a muffled and unclear at times perhaps. But all in all, a nice little solo smile.gif

Siggum 00:27 - 00:52
The first half is good!
But after that little pause halfway in it sounds like your unsure of what to play next.
Maybe a little practice on bending would do good. They sound a tiny bit out of synch and tune at times.

Nemanja 00:52 - 01:17
This is just too cool smile.gif Your voice fits well on practically everything.

Tjchep 01:18 - 01:43
I like it! It's got a good structure, and your vibrato is great!
But i'm not so sure about the sound. Sometimes these "clunking" noises are louder
than your notes, which takes away some of the coolness of the solo.
I suspect it's got more to do with your preset/sound than your playing though.

UncleSkillet 01:44 - 02:09
This was really cool smile.gif Sounded very Hammetish.
There's one note i didnt agree with though, the note right before the key goes back E. Sounded a bit
strange to me smile.gif There's some noise here and there though, but nothing major. Good stuff smile.gif

leedbreak 02:09 - 02:34
Some great ideas in this solo! And i like the structure.
There is some timing problems though, and the fast picked notes sound a bit cluttered together.
Some precision and timing practices could help with that.
Maybe less echo on your sound would be good too, it added to the cluttered sound.

OorganisedConfusion 02:35 - 03:00
Good ideas to be found here aswell. I like the double-guitar effect smile.gif
Your solos would be greatly enhanced by some more work on timing and vibrato.

USAMAN 03:01 - 03:26
Nice Wah-ing smile.gif
I like the sound of this. You tried hard to get Hammet-style solo going on.
There's a few notes i would like to have heard better timed, but all in all.. good stuff smile.gif

bladzerok 03:26 - 03:51
You got good ideas and you made a good layed out solo smile.gif
But your playing sounds a little stiff.
Adding some vibrato and working on playing more freely could really spice your playing up a bit.

Enucleation 03:52 - 04:17
Good and fast solo! I like the double-guitars that come in on the 2nd half.
It does sound a little bit messy and uncontrolled at times though, and there's some background noise.
But by all means, keep it up! If you had nailed your solo ideas here perfectly, it would have sounded killer!
Just keep practicing precision and timing

Oh, and another thing: You should try to get higher bitrates on your recordings. Your take was 64kbits, which
wont sound very good recompressed to mp3 when i export the final mixdown. 128kbit should be minimum.
And the volume level started of low to high, which made it a bit tricky to get into the mix. The ending clips.

coffeeman 04:18 - 04:42
I like it! Nice construction smile.gif
The section that starts at the keychange is good, but it sounds a bit messy. Some timing and hammeron/pulloffs
practice would be good to fix that.

Ivan 04:43 - 05:08
Your bluesy harddrock solos simply rock.... enough said smile.gif

audiopaal 05:08 - 05:33
I like your melodic-approach, and i really like those little pinches you put in there smile.gif
But you keep yourself in a safe zone by only sticking to 8th notes. Try to experiment a bit more.
I know you can do alot more with a solo!

Myself 05:34 - 06:00
I like the first half, but the last section sounds a bit unprecise and sloppy.
I need to work on that!


Once again, thanks to everyone who joined in smile.gif You all did really well!

Danke schön Trond smile.gif

I know I was "safing" it, but I'm still learning the way of Hammet laugh.gif
I practice a little soloing every now and then so it should be better in the future, but thanks for the nice words smile.gif
Glad you liked the pinhes, I do too biggrin.gif

Sign me up for the next collab as well smile.gif

Yeah I knew mine was pretty sloppy and I'll have to work on the bit rate thing. Not too good with recording.

Everyone did a fantastic job. Trond, thanks for putting this together and you comments.


--------------------
"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

Glad you all like it smile.gif

But i hope no one took any of the comments the wrong way..
There was tons of positive things about each take, but i thought it would be better to keep it short and precise smile.gif

Cheers for my comments Trond. I do need to work on a lot of things and I know it. The timing problem I should have fixed now. For all the collabs up to now I didn't use a metronome as I didn't know how to get the metronome to sound through the toneport as you plug the speakers into the toneport but I have figured it out now and will record all future collabs with a metronome. I really want to get quicker smile.gif Well quicker AND smoother. Maybe I should get smoother at this tempo before moving up tempo?

Great collab anyway and great job everyone and Nemanja that is a big compliment it means you throw everything into your singing. You haven't a little whiny voice you have a really powerful voice.
