Here's my attempt at Trond Vold's Rock solo lesson, recorded the whole thing four times, all of them had some mistakes here and there, so and I ended up choosing my first take!

Hi Fran!

It's not bad, but it's not perfect either. I think you have very nice vibrato. Sometimes the timing seems off. Like during the first notes. I mean the first pull off. I know it's hard, but maybe try to hold the first note a bit longer before you pull of! You know what I mean? You did the octaves very neat'o! Also the harmonics sounded! The harmonics were a bit sloppy, but you had sound! I don't get decent sound wink.gif The run in the end wasn't totally perfect either, but quit good! Try to play the run a couple of times on a lower BPM. This will help you with the accuracy, speed comes later!

I hope this helped, and not offended you! You did a great job, I just thought I'd help you by telling what to improve. I did this solo myself... I found out it's not very easy tongue.gif I thought I did it quit nice, then I recorded it and I suddenly heard all the mistakes!

Thanks guys, I appreciate your comments! Will try to improve it, last legato run is probably the hardest part (that's why it sounds horrible in my take laugh.gif

I thought you did great smile.gif

But there's 2 things i notice that you could work on; timing and muting. Some notes were played quite out of time and there's a some noise at times that can be avoided.

Your bends and vibrato were quite good at times, although a bit too "fast".

But all in all, well done smile.gif

Thanks for the insight guys, and specially yours Trond! smile.gif

I'll work on timing specially with the bends at the beginning and the legato run at the end, and muting of course!

You hit most of the notes, and your timing is ok.
However, you plass very statically.

To improve on this you should build a strong vibrato, and also it's VERY important that you bend to the correct pitch, or else you're totally out of the scale (in a bad way tongue.gif)

Hope this helps!
