First let me thank you all
for taking place in this collab,
I'm aware that Lydian was pretty new to some of you guys
but you still did it nicely and your work is much, much appreciated! smile.gif

So here we go, final mix and comment!

I liked the beginning of your take a lot,
those repetition were the hit!
Your timing was also pretty tight
throughout whole part which was very good and appreciated.
But you did surprised me a lot and you did it twice.
First you did it at the ending of first E Lydian part,
you played small Em pentatonic bluesy
and that was very refreshing!
Then you did it again during whole second E Lydian part,
you played everything but E Lydian,
there was E Minor scale, E Phrygian and Em Pentatonic as well.
I know there are no rules and you have all freedom
on this world to express yourself,
this was very interesting to me
and someone might find it not so cool
but it was different a lot which is the thing!

I can see your progress Jason, specially in picking area,
you even managed to throw one picking pattern
from Cm Picking Etude over Bb chord which was brilliant!!
I would only suggest you to pay more attention on timing,
try to follow beat and do not run away a lot from it.
Good take Jason, thanks for playing!


DeepRoots

Nice sound and execution.
There were some very interesting sequences,
legato parts, skipping, wide stretching,
Maybe the only thing I was missing
here was more wild vibrato and aggression on few notes
but that's just me and I can't help myself,
great playing DR.

You had some problems with key
since you played E Lydian all the time
while there was Bb Lydian part in the middle. smile.gif
Anyhow, there was some nice ideas,
specially tapping descending line, nicely constructed.
Pay more attention to key next time and also
focus more on timing if possible,
that'll make your playing sound more "mature", sort of speak.
Regarding tone, phaser is cool effect
but not necessary all the time so you didn't have to
use it by all means, and try to dial gain and midds bit lower
next time to get more warm and sweet tone,
thanks for effort and participating,much appreciated!


Enforcer


That was some sweet use of 2 guitars, well thinking. wink.gif
Your playing was overaly good,
it's just vibrato that I've found too fast and kind a nervous,
try with slower ones with wide range
for more power in your playing in general.
Oh, and ending was "what???"
You continued playing over drum break
and you ended on note F# (2nd or 9th), smooth.biggrin.gif
Well done Can, thanks for participating!


Smells


Metal buddy enters the stage once more. wink.gif
That was some neat playing Chris,
I remember you said Lydian was new to you
but I really have no idea what you were talking about. laugh.gif
Clean technique, lots of sweeps, tapping, picking etc
licks well constructed, good job!!

JasonT

I just admire the way you approach to everything,
precise and accurate like a razor!
Picking is going well, you move around fretboard easily,
the only thing that bothers me here a bit
is that you played 16ths runs way to long imo,
breaking timing here and there
would add some nice spice to this already brilliant take,
keep it up, you're doing great! smile.gif

Thanks once more for participating guys, well done everybody! smile.gif

thanks for the comments... Im confused on how to switch between scales from e lydian to Bb lydian...
and sorry about the phaser im kinda hooked on the sound of it at the moment so ive been playing everything with it, i was going for a EVH phaser vibe only problem is im not EVH..

But thanks for doing this collab, i know they are alot of work and your comments are appreciated

hey! great mix!

thanks for putting this together, Lydian feel is something that I`m not over familiar with, I studied long and hard your phrasing lessons before starting this take to try and give me some direction.

I enjoyed the challenge & I need to work on it more smile.gif

thanks for your comments mate smile.gif

Hey Muris!
Thanks for your comments, yeah I have a great vibrato problem, somehow I am used to do it very fast and nervously as you mentioned, and when I try to slow it down, I tend to exagerate the wideness of the vibrato. Both are bad imo, I am trying to find the golden middle...

Great collab by the way, I just loved the out-of-this world feel of lydian laugh.gif

Looking forward to your next collab bro! Take care!!!

My comments on my take:
Needs better tone, some notes of key (need to change strings), to many licks repeated...

Than I look at Muris' words...Omg, I feel so good right now smile.gif

Thanks, count me on the next collab

Hi Muris,
Thanks for the comments and for putting this collab together. Each one that I do is a great learning experience.

I was thinking the exact same thing regarding the long run of 16th notes I did at the end. I have been working on my AP but I might have gotten carried away with it. For future work with my AP, I'll try to make shorter runs that are more melodic. As you know, one main area of focus for me has been AP in recent months. I'm making some slow progress. With this collab though, it was actually my first attemp to use AP as a technique in my own solos. I really like the way your lydian beginner lesson makes simple use of it that's within my abilities. I'm hoping that if I stick with it, I can get beyond just 16th notes with these medium tempo songs but I guess when recording I'll have to stay within my limits technique wise.


Thanks again.

Jason. ... um, er, Jim. biggrin.gif


Hey, did you notice the lick I took from your Intermediate Pentatonic lesson? In the middle part, theres a sequence of open note hammer-ons on B and E string just like in that lesson. Only I changed it to E Lydian. Same exact pattern only different notes. I thought that was cool. ...the first time I ripped off licks from some other song and made them fit in a new song. I hope it's ok to do that. I'm finding that as I learn more from each lesson I get all kinds of ideas for my own solos.

Off course I noticed and it was cool thing to do,
that was not stealing since you changed notes
but you left same or similar pattern which many players do. smile.gif
