This is pretty much in order as you were sending them but somewhere in the middle it got messed up as some guys cancelled and I re-sorted my folder to show files by name. Sorry about waiting smile.gif

Appreciate just how big a collab this was to mix/organise and comment on Emir. Great to hear you're uploading comments as video takes, that will be very usefull for all!

Thanks again mate, the mixes so far sound great - and look at me heading up Group 2 biggrin.gif hehe

Well I just finished listening to the audio takes for both groups. This is the first time I have heard many of your guy's take in this collab.

Just wanted to say the mix sounds really good Emir and congrats to all the players. You guy's all sound great. smile.gif

It's exciting to think of how we are all going to be able to make the next one sound even better!

This is outstanding. Totally outstanding. Man, seriously what is wrong with you people? When I'm in GMC I feel like I am on a different planet. laugh.gif You are all kind, and helping above human capabilities. Not only instructors, yeah I cant know everybody here but all the GMCers I've known to this point were just the same. That must be contagious! And seriously this collaboration and the work you have done here is something that I respect with my every iota of my being. Really in some few collabs, collab leaders' work was just great, and I was thinking to myself how that could be ever improved.

Well, I can sleep now, really Emir, I seriously believe you have to be a superhero, you should be floating on a pool of ego with your playing capabilities and knowledge, instead, you make a collaboration, you spend several days to mix, to evaluate solos of everyone, write comments, take seperate videos for ever participant and really try to make us improve. Now this is something to be seriously respected. You are one of my GREATEST inspirations about how a mentor, a musician and a guitarist should be. Thank you.

Man, I really had lots of thought about writting this, but I feel an urge to do it. I am well aware of the fact that this is a job, you are paid for what you are doing now etc. But I am well aware of the fact that you didnt have to do all this and get paid anyway. Maybe I sound too emotional for some peoples taste, and some other may think of this even as a flattery but believe me it is not. I just wanted how I am grateful for all you have done, and I am sure all the participants here share my opinion. smile.gif

And by the way, great takes everyone, still can wait to hear the third groups takes... And with the help of great works like this, I am sure we will get better... laugh.gif

Well Emir, just watched the tips-video, you really set the bar very high for future collaborations.. What a dedication and interest for us poor amateurs!
Really nice, can 't wait to see the video-comments...
Of course, this must be extremely time-consuming, so I don't expect every collaboration to be as thorough as this. But you really set the pressure on the other instructors, they may hate you right now, I don't know... biggrin.gif

I think I'll apply for a permanent-member-of Emir-Collabs-card, haha... wink.gif

Thank you guys so much. To be honest this way is much easier for me to talk through than to type it. And at the same it is much more useful for you.

The first 2 videos are on the way. I hope I can do the first group tonight.

Each video is about 10 min long so it does take time to render, upload etc... I am using some simple WMV codec to save on the file size. The quality is not really good but I think it can do the job.

Many thanks Emir smile.gif... btw I am gonna regret that I ever put Velvet in front of my name ... always results in being the latest tongue.gif

WOW Emir this was awesome!! What a great video, and what a great idea - I am really impressed with your teaching! smile.gif (I really enjoyed being in your other collab)

The only thing I missed here was an embeded youtube video - doesn't matter though I got the video to play in the end! smile.gif

Mixes sounded great as well - well done everybody!

Thank you Kristofer. The reason for this attachments are because I wouldn't really like these videos on youtube. I hope everybody can respect my decision on this. Keep them here for us and when I get better video equipment and talk more relaxed then we can do one promotional for YouTube.

Cheers




Audiopaal and Berko are uploaded.

Yeah man, I agree Monte, there are lots of important tips there! I just watched and again and again impressed by this incredible dedication, evaluating everything like note by note. I am speechless!

On the other hand, the turn is mine, so I am terrified really, I know this will improve but I am no longer confident about my solo anymore laugh.gif

Wow, thank you so much for the comments!
And in video format as well, awesome smile.gif

I know exactly what you mean, I should build it up to a climax before I tone it down again for an ending smile.gif
Actually, when I listen to the solo again, I should have heard this recording it as it is a bit dull..
But I'm glad you like some parts and the sound smile.gif

I will record another take on this backing and hopefully you can hear it and tell me if I do better smile.gif
I'll do better on your next collab, I promise smile.gif

Awesome comments, thanks again!
It means a lot getting tips from an accomplished guitarist like you smile.gif

Well, this collaboration surely expands the borders of collabs in general at GMC thanks to the video comments. smile.gif A very good idea actually.

I´m too tired to write something about your big competence and kindness and so on, just read enforcer´s comment and you´ll see my thoughts. biggrin.gif
