laugh.gif ... never thought i will do something like this, but just for fun .. here is my entry for the youtube "PetrucciFever solo contest" smile.gif

To step out of the cosy GMC environment and upload a take for open comments to wild west youtube country is a bit scary tho .. laugh.gif. There are some serious shredder participating, so i have no intention to win something, but anyway ...

I should have listen to Emirs advice from his collab and practiced a bit more the faster parts (or leave them out smile.gif), but as the deadline is tomorrow i could not go any further. Anyway, i hope you guys like the composition of the solo and i'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Thanks smile.gif

Andy

That sounds great man, really melodic. Who needs shred when you can pick tasteful notes like that? Your arpeggio use was also awesome smile.gif

Andy, this is a very strong entry man!
Great mix of technique and melodic phrasing all that with great control of your notes with smooth vibrato.
Very nice take my friend, you shouldn't be embarrassed of this at all! :-)
Good luck with the contest!

You should be proud of your entry Andy. I'd much rather be able to compose and phrase like that then shred. Shredding is impressive, especially to fellow guitarists, but if you want to reach a wider audience you better be able to play melodically IMO.

Loved it! Usually hate the high gain shred approach but the phrasing and note selection you use is sublime, ah well one day i will be able to do this!

Great stuff man, that tone is really dramatic (but not dirty) and the phrasing with those smooth AP licks is very well balanced. Don't be afraid of the shredders tho, many of them seem to lack any original ideas or even a structure/story. wink.gif

Btw, you can check out my entry as well if you click on the link in my signature (the title is "About to Fall"). Yours is far better and expressive than mine, but anyway - at least I'm not the only GMCer fighting in the wild west of cruel Youtube... laugh.gif

EDIT: Monte - very well said! I tried to combine the two in mine though (to appeal for the seasoned beginners as well as for the melody-fans) Still, Andy is the man here

Thanks again Monte smile.gif .. guitar player sickness, we always want what others are doing and we are never happy with what we do .. maybe not only a guitar player problem laugh.gif

Thanks. You are right, not a fan of high gain ether .. i used a bit to much for my taste, especially at the beginning, but needed a bit more for the end. In fact the backing is quite "empty" and it was not easy to find a sound which fits in.
