Just recorded a new guitar improv video and thought I'd share it here:

well man, very very great take! it´s well done, and well balanced. it´s not boring at all, and that´s the most important thing in times of improvizations.
really like the lick you used at 01.04 sounds very fresh! smile.gif and also at 02.57 very cool lick!
well overall it´s a great take.
from my point of view, you have to work a liitle on bends. but take it easy, you are in the right way wink.gif the ideas you put in there are cool. so just try tu be a liitle bit more precise.
also, there was a few notes out of scale, but, as you was improvizing it´s not that important. for the next one, review all the boxes of the scales you´ll use.

hope my comment helps.!

Lian

Well played, my only suggestion would be to pay more attention on timing! Generally, good solo!

Lian told you about the bending, work on it, but don't get disapointed with your bends! Bends in solos are very very cool, and u use them in a great way!! Nice one!

Guitar sound is great. Just your timing could be improved. You need to land on the beat with your phrases especially when you are finishing a phrase. But great feel and good take overall.

Thanks guys for the feedback. I do agree with you. This take is far from perfect and listening to it more times make it easy to tell what I need to work on. Precision is definitely key!

And Victor, you could easily get your strat to sound like this. A lot of it has to do with the Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pickup that I'm using.

I think that the comments are just fine haha I have the same opinion.

The overall result is just fine, the take is nice and interesting.

But I think you might want to improve your rhythmic placing, sometimes the notes are not placed in the right part of the beat. Also watch out for the wrong notes, sometimes you arrive to notes that are not from the key of the tune.
Your phrasing is cool but I think you have to improve the transitions, that's the most difficult thing in music, when you improvise or compose you have an idea and then how you get to the next idea is really difficult and I think that's one difference that makes a great composer/improviser from a not so good composer/improviser. Those joints are the thing you have to work, how you get to point A to B and then to C without repeating yourself.

I hope this helps you biggrin.gif

Keep the good work!

Sounds very good, note choice is very good, and it sounds very logical to me. The sound is great as well, nice and fat. The thing that IMO you should work on is timing. Be sure that every note is exactly on time with the backing.

Nice tone and licks man! You land on the strong notes most of the time, which is great!

However, your bends are off, vibrato is too weak and your timing is bad.
I would recommend you to put the backing louder when you record, it's easier to follow time!
Also, regarding the vibrato, I would say it should be atleast a semitone wide to sound punching.
If you listen closely when you bend, you'll hear when you hit the wanted note in the scale, if the backing and guitar-volume is in decent harmony.

Hope this post helps you! smile.gif
