Hi guys, sorry for the delay on comments but...even GMC Instructors are on holidays laugh.gif

I've tried to highlight what you have done good and maybe give you some suggestion/direction to improve, but bear in mind that to be more precise I should have know your age, how long do you played and stuff like that, so...in the ends they just represent my point of view based on recording wink.gif

Attached File  Joe_Kataldo___Pure_Steel___Metal_Collabs.mp3 ( 5.2MB ) Number of downloads: 367



Matt23

Really nothing to say here, great solo great intro and flawless playing...Good Job Matt!
Bending intonation it's good but you can improve it, same for the vibrato, spend some time with tuner for bending and a metronome for vibrato

Outlaw2112

Great intro but you get lost in the middle, ideas are good, but played, sometime, with wrong timing.
Try to tap your foot when play or record along with the baking track, and alway practice with a metronome.

berko

Same problem here good ideas, that could be great, with just a little more precise timing, picking lines are beautiful but in some parts loose their tightness because of timing.
one word...metronome biggrin.gif

superize

Great use of the phrigian mode in the begin, good modal solo in the complex maybe you over used that ascending/descending picking line too much, it's important to keep the listener interested

Tolek

Nice opening blues/rock lick and tapping, I like the open string part too, I have just one suggestion, try to use less distortion

Caelumamittendum

A dark tone as I like biggrin.gif really nothing to say here, a good mix of melody and shred with wide vibrato, and killing sweeps in the end...good job.


Toroso

Same problem as some other guys, you have very good melodic ideas, that not express their full potential because of wrong timing...try to work more with metronome and always tap your foot along with backing tracks or live bands

leedbreak

a very good structured solo, with repetitions and variation to keep the listener interested, the only suggestion I can give is try to work more on tone, specially when recording less distortion means more dynamics

Tjchep

Here it comes my favourite biggrin.gif I love the epic intro the dark tone and the opening vibrato gives me goose bumps, only suggestion is work more on bending intonation not 100% precise but nearly there
P.S.

I got inspired from you form my solo tongue.gif

kaznie_NL

A nice structured solo with call&answer phrases with surely an uncommon and unique tone, try to work more on timing wink.gif


Marc_Maiden

What could I say nice harmony, riffs, and some fusion rhythmic displacement too all played with a good tone and conviction...try to mix the guitar a little bit lower, to better fit in the mix

Dexxter

a nice solo, enough structured to give to the listener the impression that you know where are you going, good vibrato, picking technique and bending that sometime not 100% in tune but nearly there.
Unfortunately the audio quality was quite low and doesn't pay justice to you solo, maybe try to improve this wink.gif

ztevie

Nice solo here too, with a structure important to keep the listener interested, very good picking techniques cool.gif , I may suggest to experiment with more mids on your amp setting, but this is purely a matter of personal taste

Oxac

Interesting pickup intro very fluid, unfortunately got a little bit lost in the final mix because of preceding solo.
Ideas are good but lack of organization, and needs a more structured form, otherwise sometime may looks like you don't know what you are doing, work on blues soloing may help

kjutte

Majestic intro, great use of phrigian/phrigian dominat modes, good picking technique and vibrato, good control of harmonics too...probably you improvised it, but if you spend some time organizing better the ideas and give it a more structured form it could be a perfect solo for a metal song

enforcer

Impressive picking techniques and articulation, ideas are good and interesting specially the final harmony part...two things: try to work more on bending intonation and that second part at 00:13 comes in, too much disconnected from the first one, if you used overdubs, do not cut the tail of the first solo


Thanks For Joining

Joe Kataldo

Final mix seems to be a little slow in tempo. Maybe? Could be my 5$ work speakers i guess.

Easy now...
The comments maybe won't come until next year, so you can leave the PC now. I hear your family is screaming from the dinner room, that they're having new year dinner now... rolleyes.gif

In Sweden it's 7:30pm now, and I'm getting ready to leave for work, and work all night... mad.gif Life's great!! New Year dinner at work, I won't see any fireworks, and I definitely won't be drinkin' any Absolut Vodka either... This last thing is maybe what pisses me off the most... biggrin.gif
