Hi again guys.

I fell in love with Joe Kataldo's collab backing, so I thought I'd make a lesson of the solo I did there.
Well, it's a bit altered. I added a diminished line also.

Here's the main movie:

Shape 1 - Intro
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basic pattern of descending phrygian dominant.
I'm sure you should have no problem pulling this off, but be aware that you need a strong vibrato
to make it sound rough at the last note. The bridge pickup is used.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 2 - Squeel'n'Shred
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here I do a squeel with the whammy bar. You need to use your bridge pickup, and hold your finger right on the 17th metal fret of the G string. After that, I play some more phrygian dominant descending runs.
Now it switches pretty fast though, I switch to neck pickup, and do a shredline.
To get the sound that I have, you really gotta do this pickup change.
At the very end of the shred, I change back to brige pickup for regular rough lead and vibrato.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 3 - Diminished lick + outro.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Starting here I do a symmetrical minor 3rd interval in octaves. This is a diminished lick.
Some staccatto playing after it, strong vibrato as usual to make it sound metal.
Honestly, I always use strong vibrato, I think it adds alot more personality and feel to the given piece.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And, that's that. I hope you like my lesson!
I'll add a GP file and tab paper as usual.

Good luck!

Very nice lesson!! very clean too. just wondering though, the guitar pro seems as if its a bit faster than the original, or am i just hearing it wrong?

The sound quality is great too, what did you use to record?

The thing about being really stupid, is that there are a zillion ways to be a moron. There are usually several ways to be intelligent, given a situation, but it is a small finite number. But there are always a zillion ways to be to blithering idiot. So finding a new way to have the intellect of an artichoke is nothing to be proud of really, it is easy to do.


So true... To bad im still an artichoke haha

Does it mater? It's a tab smile.gif
If it was 100% I wouldn't need the video tongue.gif

Feel free to fix the GP tab, I'll be glad to edit my post. smile.gif

Anyway, I use the DI output on my marshall amp, into my EMU Tracker Pre 2.0 soundcard.

I remember to have had the same. Is there no option in your settings to do a horizontal flip or do you prefer to go down in history as left hand player ? smile.gif

Thanks.
Some claim you only need one pickup, but that really narrows your options down.
I remember when I started out, a great guitarist friend of mine told me "In a good solo you see the pros change pickups atleast 10 times!". Eventually you see the significance of it. smile.gif
