Ok so I have been working on this ALOT over the past 6 months (with a small hiatus in December)

and basically when I started I struggled to keep a galloping rhythm going at 70 BPM. I still consider myself a novice guitarist.

I'm looking for feedback, but before you guys do so, let me take a shot at critiquing myself...

I think for the most part my timing is pretty good, there are a few spots on the track where I get a little ahead or behind(especially in the last part), but only a little in my mind.

the last little bit, after it moves away from the galloping rhythm, I think I need to work on the dynamics a little more. I was only able to play this at 100BPM as recently as yesterday, so I still haven't had time to work on the fine details.

lastly, my tone.... I think it's probably the thing I need to correct the most, and oddly enough, some might consider it to be the easiest, but I can't find anything I like! dry.gif I'm using Gearbox software, and any advice would be greatly appreciated here.

Please add or takeaway from anything I said here
and as always, be as "mean" as you would like with the criticism, no hard feelings here smile.gif

Thanks!

-Chris

I think the take is nice mate!
The tone as you've said could be improved, maybe some more gain and boost so the Palm Mute sounds more "crunchy".

Keep the good work biggrin.gif

Thanks guys,

I never tried using reverb when experimenting with my tone for this track, I think that was the "missing piece" to the puzzle. Thanks Lian, it sounds awesome.

Great! Well played, though I don't prefer the tone of the guitar.

As the other guys mentioned, the tone could be bit improved ( unfortunately I don't know how to make a good one dry.gif ). The playing was cool, I must say that such slower version of this lesson sounded like Manowar at the beginning:D
