Well, I was too late to join the collab, so I thought I should still do a take on it. smile.gif

Very good jamming Tjchep. I don't know if you read the comment I left in your other upload but you seem to have really improved on what I said as your improv seemed to really relate to itself here and have more structure. Great work Tjchep and keep going. smile.gif

Hey Tj, what's up bro?

I agree with Matt23 on the structure thing. Great progress here smile.gif

Your take isn't full out shred improved, it wasn't intended to be and that is cool. I can tell you took the time to say something with you jam. You had a beginning, middle and end. The melodic idea with the octaves at the start, you built it up to some fast runs (sucking the listener in) and then ended it. My only helpful suggestion would be to end you solo on an exclamation mark (!!), not a question mark (??). Don't move around so much at the end landing on random notes till the track ends. Make your statement with confidence and then stop. I hope that made some since.

You did a great job man and it can be tough to discipline yourself to thinks like this. Trust me I know.

Way to go Bro! wink.gif

"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

Great stuff TJ as always mate. Nice raked vibrato bends and legato runs. The sound is very cool as well, but I would like to be a bit more open in the highs, I think it would sound a bit better. You're slowly improving on the soloing structure which is great, this solo had a nice flow, and well placed notes all around. Keep rocking mate, it was great! smile.gif

Tj I pretty much agree with what UncleSkillet said. I could tell he picked up a lot of useful things from the collab we did couple of weeks ago wink.gif

Great work man! This proves that long slow notes can be awesome when used right biggrin.gif. I haven't been around long enough to see your improvement, but you sure can play wink.gif

Nice take Tjchep, but I still hear the problems like last time.
It's all the same, you did bend lines through this whole song (52 sec) which I thought got pretty boring in the end.
You did pick up the advice about climax though, with the shred. It was sloppy, but you've got the idea.

Technique wise you've improved alot lately!
Anyway,I think you should work a bit on your lick library, and also tempo.
I really think that your licks and tempo sounds teh same every time, unfortunately.

Hope this helps
