ok, doing something like this is a first for me, and this is the product of about 10 hours of blood sweat and tears

I programmed the drums myself, which is why you won't be hearing any fills wink.gif (I only have the trial version of addictive drums)

and recorded all the guitar parts... except bass... I dont have a bass laugh.gif

let me know what you guys think, and suggestions for improvement, I'm particularly interested in what everyone thinks of the tone I used, because that took a while to get to sound decent. I used the gearbox software that comes with the toneport UX1, and recorded it through the toneport.

oh, and the original lesson is here

thanks in advance!

-Chris

EDIT.... Carlos: If you're reading this, would you mind telling me what sort of effects you used for the clean chords in the middle of the lesson?... I tried to get my guitar to sound like that, but I couldn't come that close. Thanks! if anyone else can tell what effects he used, please answer too

Hi Chris,

I haven't heard the lesson and wanted to give feedback without hearing it. I think you did a good job man. smile.gif I do think that the drums are a little high in the mix but that's a matter of opinion as well. As far as your playing...Sounded in time and mixed pretty good. The only thing I was missing was vibrato and feeling. I think if you were to just add a little bit, it would really make the solos jump out and capture the audience.

Now, I'm listening to the lesson.... laugh.gif Completely off base man! You did a great job with the lesson. Carlos really didn't have a lot of vibrato either. Can you tell I don't know much about Paramore.. laugh.gif Nicely done! smile.gif

yeah laugh.gif I really didnt do much to make it my own,

I was just interested in coming as close as possible to the sound Carlos made... If you listen closely, I added a Few crashes, and I switched up the end a little bit... but everything else was an attempt at getting it to sound like the lesson

the timing was a real b**ch to handle too, because for some reason, everything that I recorded tonight had a small lag to it, (when I recorded stuff last night, there was no lag)

Well done bro now get some sleep. Santa Claus is comming to your town biggrin.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
