Comments:

As usual I'll write a positive critic and a study direction to improve


1 kaznie_NL

wink.gif Listening to this collab, I can say for sure that you made big improvement over a short period of time (comparing to previously collab) both timing and guitar sound, ideas are more concise and the solo is structured.

mad.gif I feel the guitar sound a little bit to much effected, I know that is a matter of taste, but sometime can hide mistake, specially when practicing use a dry as possible sound

2 leedbreak

wink.gif Great idea to create a complementary riff that works in time with the one in the backing, a clever use of repetition to create interest and a nice anding a fast scale run, everything played with a dark sound as I like.

mad.gif Really not too much to complain here, try to work more with a metronome, it's never enough biggrin.gif

3 Outlaw2112

wink.gif Clean playing with no mistake in the execution, and a crazy chorused distortion, very unusual and unique

mad.gif try to add more rhythm variations as you have done in the final part, mixing different rhythm figures, sequences are cool but overdo can produce a boring effect biggrin.gif

4 kjutte

wink.gif Great vibrato man! nice sweep picking and good strong ideas

mad.gif as usual is a matter of taste, but I'll work more on guitar sound, you reached a good level of playing, you need something more professional for your recording

5 Marek Rojewski

wink.gif Nice solo, well structured with good ideas, nice picking and timing

mad.gif work more on your guitar sound, too much bright to my ears and no mids. Low mids are the body of the guitar, never cut them on solo sounds


6 USAMAN

wink.gif Nice Zakk Wyldesque blues riffing and pentatonic picking, I like the sound and the vibrato.

mad.gif Bending are not always in tune, nearly there, but you can improve it working with a tuner and some bending licks

7 Alex Lewis

ohmy.gif Great solo, sound, timing. You used different techniques with mastery and doubled the ending riff...good Job!

mad.gif This is really a personal improvement: I really prefer wide and slow vibrato, to short & fast, the one you use most in your solo, listen to yourself carefully and experiment with it, at least you have to be able to play both kinds

8 LPR9

wink.gif Great "Alex Lifeson/Rush" sound, dist+Phaser makes the guitar sound "moves" I really enjoyed the double stop riffs you put in there and the solo in general

mad.gif the alternate picking part is not well "quantize" work slowly with a metronome on repetitive patter and your speed will increase sooner as you might expect

9 DaniHel

wink.gif Nice "liquid" sound and melodic soloing, great sweep technique, legato and phrasing in general...good job man!

mad.gif there is really not to much to be angry here biggrin.gif as you can hear your sound was higher on the left channel, maybe you can invest some time improving recording quality, you have good technique and melodic ideas, you deserve it

10 JVM

wink.gif fantastic "crying" opening and initial riffing with great melodic ideas, good timing too

mad.gif last part of the doublestop bending is out of tune and ruins the initial effect, also spend same time on guitar sound, try to add more "body"
I'm sure you didn't had much time on this one, with a bit of practice could became a great solo


Thanks everybody to join my collab

Thanks for the comments Joe!

I´m glad you noticed that left being higher thing, when i record for some reason the playback on cubase the left meter always goes higher than the right =| Have to check it out.

Once again thanks alot, was really cool to have you comment my take, and thanks for the awesome backing track!

Will definitely be in your next collab

Cheers!

hi Joe ,
many thanks for the feedback !

some more info on my sound : this is my Les Paul > Orange thunderberb 50 head > celestion cab > SM57 > DAW

I've added the effect thanks to guitar rig 3, its called crunch o sonic, I figured it would fit well with the song.

In regards to double stops, actually the idea came from one of your lessons, https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...hm-with-triads/ , where I basically used simillar triads, but speed them up and played those as double stops , since the backtrack was really rythmic oriented .
I also used a pattern from gabriel's lesson, in the style of blues saraceno, https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...raceno-lesson2/ and I slow it down this time to get to the groove with your backtrack.

for the rest I know I have to practice my speed picking , that one was a first attempt to go outside my confort zone . i'll work on metronome as much as possible..
thanks !

Thanks for the collaboration Joe. I knew the tuning was probably a bit off on some of the bends, but I was having a bit of recording anxiety from not uploading recently tongue.gif After about my 50th take I just decided to send it in anyway smile.gif
